Worlds of Magic combines classic elements like randomly generated world maps and powerful heroes with new game mechanics, such as the D20 OGL rule set, and expanded features, like seven planes of existence. Although a completely new title from a design point of view, it seeks to hold true to the essence of what made Master of Magic a true classic.
Worlds of Magic uses the D20 OGL Rule Set for its tactical combat background mechanics. D20 is one of the most prolific rule sets ever used to simulate medieval combat and has literally billions of play hours attesting to its success. It allows us to create interesting units with unique feats, abilities, and statistics while at the same time providing a framework for maintaining balance.
After almost a year since the game Worlds of Magic was successfully funded on Kickstarter, gamers will finally get a chance to play the 4X turn-based strategy game that pays homage to the critically acclaimed Master of Magic.
Worlds of Magic is currently in advanced beta and will first be available via Steam Early Access on the 11th of September 2014 for $39.99.
