Everyone can finally breathe a sigh of relief. “Magic 2015 - Duels of the Planeswalkers” has been released on Xbox 360, PC via Steam and Android via the Amazon Store App and Google Play. It will be released on the Xbox One later this summer.

From many previews Boston Games Examiner has seen, this looks to be the best version of the game yet. Not only does the art design take a darker and more mature turn, but the game play has made vast improvements. Players who consider themselves experts or veterans of the game should find the game more entertaining if they didn’t already.

So what’s different? In Magic 2014, players were extremely happy with the sealed decks they could make and play with. While that feature is not back in Magic 2015 in the same fashion, the same principle exists. After each of your wins, you can win a new booster pack. Once you get your booster, you can open it and add cards to you deck and collection. Speaking of collection, DOPT 2015 features a new way to sort out your collection. The interface has been changed to be more accessible.

Don’t forget that the paper version of Magic 2015 also releases this weekend.

"The release of the paper Magic 2015 Core Set is set for this Friday, July 18. The Magic 2015 set contains 14 cards developed by some of the most brilliant, creative minds behind popular games, including George Fan (Plants vs. Zombies), Notch (Minecraft), and Rob Pardo (World of Warcraft), along with a card designed by the Magic fan community. Magic 2015 – Duels of the Planeswalkers will feature eight of the designer cards."

This is your chance to enjoy the digital version before the paper version of cards becomes available to the general public.
