Legends is playable on March 23
It’s been…a year! Well, it’s been…a hard nine months or so, but it’s felt like a full year.
And in that time, I’ve forgotten about a lot of games that were sort of vaguely coming in 2021, or were pushed further away into limbo. That includes the upcoming Magic: The Gatheringthemeddungeon crawling action romp Magic: Legends!
Lo and behold though,Perfect World Entertainment and Wizards of the Coast are here to remind us that it is indeed a thing, and will start becoming an actual thing you can playpretty soon. On March 23 the PC open beta will begin, at which point everyone can give it a go; following a previous series of closed alpha tests.
As a reminder it’s described as a “free-to-play persistent world” game, which is still dungeon-crawler framed but also has elements of the card game, like “decks” that can be used to influence your spell/ability choices. You can get a good quick look at that idea below.
Eventually, this thing will hit the PS4 and Xbox One platforms as well.
