The world of Magic: The Gathering has made its way into many games over the years. Now, Cryptic Studios is building the universe from its card counterparts to entice players with a new way to engage with the longstanding IP. Grab your Serra Angels and Earth Elementals as you smash legions of foes, enhance your deck, and create a planeswalker to your highly customized specifications in an MMO action/RPG shell. We visited Cryptic Studios in Los Gatos, Calif., to see what’s cooking for this free-to-play monster mash coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
We take a deep dive into the game, and have exclusive gameplay impressions and videos to share. Build a deck of 12 cards that constantly cycle, with 4 active cards and a slew of handy abilities to smash your way through endless monsters and maps. Combine buffs, spells, and summons to weave your way through lands from Magic: The Gathering, like Shiv and the Caligo Morass.
And that’s not all! This issue features our Top 50 games from 2019, including game of the year, category winners, reader’s choice, and more.
