According to a post on Reddit Aug. 29, 2013 "Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013" will be one of two free games given away to Xbox Live Gold members in September 2013. The image comes from an alleged update to the Australian Xbox.com dashboard.
This news is important because millions of potential new "Magic: The Gathering" players will be able to download and play the game for free. One smart idea by Wizards of the Coast would be to include in-game advertising for the Magic Celebration, where players can attend a free event at participating WPN locations on Sept. 7, 2013. This could bring thousands of new players to the paper game.
Microsoft hasn't officially announced September's games yet. Current Xbox Live Gold members receive two free Xbox 360 game downloads every month until 2014 as part of the "Games for Gold" program.
