It's been more than a year since we got our first look at Magic: Legends, the Diablo-esque action RPG based off the immensely popular Magic: The Gathering card game.

In the game, players will be on a mission to end with the dark threat once and for all, to achieve this, they will take the role of a powerful hero with special abilities, known as a Planeswalker.

In the card game, a Planeswalker is a master sorcerer, who, using spell decks, can destroy hordes of enemies on the battlefield. The same will translate to the video game, where players must build their own decks to defeat everything in their path, with unique fighting styles and abilities.

How do you get in the Magic: Legends Open Beta?

Cryptic Studios, the developers, recently revealed that thousands of players have participated in the closed Alpha tests that were carried out in the past few months. Thanks to this, various systems featured in the game have been improved, such as combat and character progression.
