Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers Beta Released

Posted on January 18, 2009 by Flames

Wizards of the Coast has released the Beta version of Duels of the Planeswalkers, an arcade-style video game for Xbox LIVE Arcade developed in conjunction with UK company Stainless Games. The game is rated T for Teen and is scheduled for spring release for the Xbox 360.

Duels of the Planeswalkers takes players on a journey through a Multiverse in which they take on the roles of Planeswalkers, powerful wizards who battle others for glory, knowledge and conquest. Throughout their journey, Planeswalkers battle with, or against each other in lush interactive 3D environments. Similar to the Magic: The Gathering trading card game, Planeswalkers are equipped with an arsenal of spells and creatures that if used wisely will help advance the Planeswalker through the game.

Extending the game experience beyond the confines of the traditional card game, players can opt to battle real life opponents using Microsoft’s Xbox LIVE service offerings. With rich multiplayer game play scenarios, Duels of the Planeswalkers offers an unrivaled depth in which each game is different from the last.
