Beta for Diablo-esque Magic: The Gathering game launching in March

Players will be able to try out this deckbuilding-slash-action RPG shortly.

An open beta for the upcoming Magic: Legends is being rolled out on PC in the near future.

That's according to the game's publisher Perfect World, which says that players will be able to check out the action RPG title from March 23. This is coming ahead of a full launch for PC, as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later in 2021.

Users should head to Arc Games to try out the open beta.

“The chorus of gamers eager to join Magic: Legends’ beta has been both exciting and humbling to us all. We are thrilled to finally announce that both Magic and ARPG fans will get to explore the Magic: The Gathering world we’ve brought to life and ignite their Spark this Spring," said Perfect World CEO, Yoon Im.

Executive producer at the game's developer Cryptic Studios, Stephen Ricossa, added: “It’s hard to believe we’re finally opening the gates to the Multiverse to all gamers and Magic fans. Over the last year, the development team has been working non-stop to bring this legendary card game to life. We want to take a moment to thank everyone who participated in our Closed Alpha tests for providing the feedback we needed to help evolve Magic: Legends into what it is today.”

Magic: Legends was revealed in December 2019 at The Game Awards with a CGI trailer ahead of a gameplay reveal the following month. The title mixes the deckbuilding gameplay of Magic: The Gathering with action RPG elements a la Diablo.
