New Magic: The Gathering Arena PC game

New Magic: The Gathering Arena PC game”

Fans of the best-selling table top strategy card game Magic: The Gathering will be excited to hear that an all-new digital game has officially been revealed.

Wizards is planning big things with Arena - no less than the full list of Standard sets at launch, and with an additional 1000 cards added each month. "We'll make it in a lovely interface and quick play style that really matches the way people play games today".

Some of the highlights of the pitch is that the game is built for streaming, is created to be easy for newbies, and is also being built up for the inevitable e-sports run.

"Magic: The Gathering Arena", based on the physical trading card game that was first released in 1993, is Wizards of the Coast's latest response to "Hearthstone" and "Gwent".

During a livestream last night Wizard of the Coast unveiled Magic the Gathering: Arena, the new digital platform for playing Magic the Gathering. However, the technology requires more development time, hence the introduction of MTG Arena in its closed beta phase. Wizards of the Coast is now accepting applications for a closed beta test expected to launch later this year.

Starting later this year, testers will focus on the first iteration of casual Constructed play, with cards from the Ixalan release.

Matches in MTG Arena will place two players against each other using decks that they built, with some changes in the move from tabletops to a digital platform.

Perhaps one of the more interesting facets of MTG Arena is the new Games Rules Engine.

One of the primary goals is to get an engaging audience for Arena: "We want to create a version of Magic that's as much fun to watch as it is to play", Steefel explained. We wanted to integrate modern online services that will create a dynamic overall experience and also someday integrate with other aspects of your Magic life.
