Magic: The Gathering is the first and most widely played trading card game. Players take on the role of Planeswalkers – powerful mages who battle others for glory, knowledge and conquest. Their weapons include spells, creatures, and artifacts gathered from a vast multiverse of unique fantasy worlds.
With an easy to use tutorial, Duels of the Planeswalkers is the best way for new players to learn Magic: The Gathering. Players that are already familiar with Magic will enjoy a new-to-digital multiplayer game mode called Archenemy where players gather up to two allies and team up against the AI.
“We are thrilled with the success of Magic: The Gathering and the tremendous growth of our player community worldwide,” said Greg Leeds, President, Wizards of the Coast. “Smart, strategic and competitive gamers love to get together to battle and have fun using their intellectual strengths. With more than 12 million players and fans in more than 70 countries and 500,000 units of Duels of the Planeswalkers sold on XBLA, Magic is experiencing record growth and delivering players a truly integrated gaming experience across both digital and real world.”
Attendees at the PAX East convention in Boston are welcome to gather their allies into three person teams to participate in the hands-on demo of the Archenemy game mode for Duels 2012 at the Magic: The Gathering booth (#648). A variety of Magic: The Gathering events for the paper TCG product will also be available in Gaming Hall B.
