Magic: Legends Open Beta Also Coming to Epic Games Store
Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios announced that its upcoming open beta for Magic: Legends will also be available through the Epic Games Store. The beta begins on March 23, 2021, with Epic Games Store players using the same server as those on Arc Games. Those who participate through the Epic Games Store before April 6, 2021, will receive the Epic Planeswalker Starter Pack for free, which unlocks a Moorland Ranger costume, a Moorland Ranger Werewolf summon skin, and two drop boosts.
Magic: Legends is based on the Magic: The Gathering franchise, with each player controlling their own Planeswalker in the universe. At launch, the game will include five classes — Geomancer, Mind Mage, Beastcaller, Sanctifier, and Necromancer — as well as 175 mana-based spells inspired by the original card game, 50 artifacts, 165 pieces of equipment, four planes, and five regions. The game is being developed for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One and will launch as a free-to-play title sometime in 2021.
