The latest Magic: the Gathering game, Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013, is due to launch sometime this summer. As such, Stainless Games and Wizards of the Coast have released a trailer touting some of the game's new features. Despite being dubbed a 'Gameplay Trailer,' it's heavy on the lackluster Flash animation first seen in 2012's intro and a bit light on actual gameplay. Still worth a watch to glimpse a few new cards though!
A new Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 deck pack launched this week. This is the third such pack to hit the downloadable card game. Simply titled "Deck Pack #3," it includes two new playable decks for use in both the single player, multiplayer, and co-op modes of the game:
This week saw a new addition to the deck roster of Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers. The "Magic 2012 Deck Pack 1" includes two new decks: "'March to War,' a red and white deck featuring an army of brutally efficient Soldiers, and 'Ghoulkeeper,' a vile black deck featuring an unrelenting Zombie legion." This is the second piece of DLC for the game, following the "Ascend into Darkness" expansion that released this past September.
It's been too long since we've done a news post about the game with the most ridiculously long name of all time: Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 (which I will henceforth simply call Duels 2012). Good news for us, then, because Wizards of the Coast has just announced that Duels 2012 will be getting an expansion this fall. If Duels 2012 is anything like the first Duels, there will be other expansions to follow for fans to gobble up. Entitled Ascend Into Darkness (I know, I always thought one descended into such things), Duels 2012's first expansion sounds like it has a good deal to offer fans. Players will be able to unlock three new decks (figure-headed by Liliana Vess, Ajani Goldenmane, and Ral Zarek) as well as four new cards for each of the original thirteen decks. A myriad of single-player campaign content will also be added upon purchasing the DLC. Here's the full list of what it has to offer:
Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 is the sequel to the popular multi-platform virtual Magic the Gathering card game. Is there enough new content to warrant buying this new iteration? We sling some spells and send our creatures into battle in our co-op review of the game.
Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 will be out in 2011. Weird, we know. Actually, the game will be out next month. But I guess Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers June 15, 2011 the Re-Shuffling, didn't test well with focus groups. That's right, Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the - oh, come on! We'll refer to the game as "DOTP 2012" or maybe even "it" for the rest of this post. "It" will be out in just a few short weeks. What's got us pumped for the latest digital version of MTG? Archenemy Mode, of course! In case you missed the IGN article, Archenemy Mode lets three players team up online to battle a series of bosses. That's right, three player online co-op is supported. AI will even take over if one of your lame friends backs out of the match. (We hope the AI knows what it's doing) This is a welcome addition to the local two player co-op mode, Two-Headed Giant which (hopefully) will be returning.
