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.
Check out the following video. It looks like Archenemy mode may be a main focus of the game. It certainly looks like allies will play an important role. We will find out more details in the coming weeks, and we'll be sure to keep you updated. Magic the Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers will be out on June 15, 2011 for the Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and PC. It supports two player local co-op and three player online co-op.
