Today July 9, 2014 Wizards of the Coast announced that their latest Magic: The Gathering video game Magic 2015 – Duels of the Planeswalkers is now available on iPad. The game will also be releasing on PC via Steam, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Amazon Kindle, and Android on Google Play on July 16, 2014, followed by the Magic 2015 Core Set on July 18, 2014. Prerelease events for the paper Magic 2015 Core Set will be taking place this weekend July 12-13, 2014.
One of the newest additions to the franchise this year with Magic 2015 – Duels of the Planeswalkers is a fully customizable deck builder. Previous installments limited players to preconstructed decks which had several unlockable cards that could be swapped in and out. This year though, players will be able to have complete creative control over the contents of their library - a feature which fans have been asking for ever since the first Duels of the Planeswalkers game was released. You can read more about the features of the game in our hands on preview at PAX East.
Also new to this year's edition are premium booster packs which can be purchased from the store. The premium booster packs feature unique cards not found within the normal game, however players are limited to how many of each common, uncommon, rare, and mythic rare card they can possess in their collection.
You can currently download Magic 2015 – Duels of the Planeswalkers from the Apple Store at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/magic-2015/id672924134.
We have no doubt the iPad version of the game will be a hit amongst mobile gamers due to its portability. Which platform will you be gaming on? Please let us know in the comments, or via Twitter @David_Leavitt.
