Welcome, Planeswalkers, to Magic: Legends’ PC Open Beta! Below is a list of all of the features you can expect to find in the game, with additional updates that will be added later. Ignite your Spark and welcome to the Multiverse!

Game Features:

  • A New ‘Magic’ Story – Ancient forces move in the darkness, and it’s up to players to gather the power needed to fight this evil. Magic: Legends features noteworthy characters from the iconic franchise across various storylines, eventually culminating in conflict with a powerful villain from the Multiverse who has never been visualized before.
  • Become a Planeswalker Magic: Legends allows players to harness the power of mana through five diverse starter classes and switch between these classes on the fly - with additional classes available later on. 
  • Walk Your Own Path – Planeswalkers will need to cross various planes to save the Magic Multiverse, but how they weave their path is up to them.
  • Control the Chaos –  Players will make fast, tactical decisions on the battlefield in real-time, while strategically building a deck of spells from the spell library, which will be drawn at random during combat. Whether they wield the power of White, Blue, Black, Red, or Green mana - their choices determine how they navigate the battlefield.
  • Collect and Upgrade Magic: Legends offers a myriad of spells and spell pages that can be collected to make each spell more powerful. Players will acquire and utilize Equipment and Artifacts to synergize with their decks in order to craft their desired playstyles.
  • Fight Together The planes in Magic: Legends can be traversed alone or with up to two other Planeswalkers. Players can prepare unique loadouts to build on their teammates’ strengths or test their mettle in 1v1 PvP Duels.

  • Planeswalkers who choose to play as the Necromancer class will start with the Black Deck starter, which includes 12 black spells.
  • Sanctifier 
  • The Sanctifier is equally adept at smiting foes with searing bolts of light as they are with mending the wounds of fallen comrades. This class can summon forth angels, paladins and those dedicated to order for protection in battle while laying waste to enemies with righteous light.
