Ascend Into Darkness This Fall in MTG: DotP 2012's Expansion

The newest iteration of Duels of the Planeswalkers gets an expansion in 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:


  • Three new playable decks: Liliana Vess's "Grave Whispers" deck, Ajani Goldmane's "Auramancer" deck, and Ral Zarek's "Cloudburst" deck
  • Six exclusive sneak-preview cards from the upcoming Innistrad expansion
  • Players can become the Archenemy in single-player and online multiplayer formats
  • Six new single-player campaign levels and eleven Archenemy single-player campaign levels
  • Four Archenemy challenges
  • Four additional card unlocks for all thirteen Duels 2012 decks
  • New achievements on Xbox, Steam, and PlayStation
  • New loading screens featuring art and text exclusive to the Duels 2012 Expansion

The expansion will be shown off at PAX Prime later this month. The schedule release date is September 14th.
