To accompany this news,  Perfect World and Cryptic Studios have released a new cinematic trailer, giving fans a taste of the upcoming game’s spell-slinging action.

In Magic: Legends you’ll battle through dungeons, completing quests, and unlocking an arsenal of powerful spells represented as cards. Here’s a breakdown of what to expect:

Choose your path through diverse planes, collect unique spells, Artifacts, and Equipment to create powerful loadouts, and control the chaos of battle as you fight to save the Multiverse from its greatest threat yet.


Rise to the challenge and save the Multiverse from its greatest threat yet. Harness the power of five different classes – but don’t worry about picking just one. You can switch between all five as you play.


You’ll need to cross diverse planes and regions to save the Magic Multiverse, but how you weave your path is up to you.


Make fast, tactical decisions on the battlefield in real-time combat. Strategically build a deck of spells from your spell library, which will be drawn at random as you fight. Whether you wield the power of White, Blue, Black, Red, or Green mana – your choices determine how you navigate the battlefield.


Discover and cast a myriad of spells and collect spell pages to make them more powerful. Acquire and utilize Equipment and Artifacts to synergize with your deck in order to craft your desired playstyle.


Traverse the planes alone or with up to two other Planeswalkers. Prepare unique loadouts to build on your teammates’ strengths.
Although the initial open beta is only available on PC, Magic: Legends will be launching on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One as well. By extension, the game will be coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S too via backwards compatibility.
