IGN Announces Magic: Legends Open Beta Starts March 23

Greetings Planeswalkers! Over the last year, the Magic: Legends development team here at Cryptic Studios has been working closely with our nearly 100,000 Closed Alpha testers to ensure that the game’s signature spell-slinging combat feels powerful, the progression feels meaningful, and overall - that we’re offering a fun experience! We have also collaborated closely with Wizards of the Coast, so that the Multiverse we take you to stays true to that of the franchise you know and love. We have spent months consuming all sorts of feedback, and building on Magic: Legends until we felt it was worthy to live up to the heritage of Magic: The Gathering

Magic: Legends Open Beta Date

Today, IGN announced that soon, you’ll be able to experience the thrill of becoming your very own Planeswalker! Starting on March 23, 2021, players from around the world will be able to explore the Magic Multiverse, as Magic: Legends begins its Open Beta period for PC on Arc Games. Later this year, the game will make its official launch on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation®4. 

Also, check out the exclusive Deckbuilding video for a first look at building powerful decks within Magic: Legends!

Before we enter our Open Beta, we will be having one more Closed Alpha test! Invites for this upcoming Closed Alpha are going out shortly so that we have even more player feedback to fine-tune some of our newest features. Want in? Sign up for testing opportunities at - and stay tuned for additional details as we deliver invites.

What’s Next

Join us on Thursday, January 28, 2021, at 11:00 am PT, for our next official Twitch livestream. Jared “SoFech” Browar is hosting a preview of content from our upcoming Alpha test alongside Magic: Legends’ Executive Producer, Stephen Ricossa. 

From here through Open Beta and beyond, we’ll continue to share new information with you about game systems, lore, testing, and more.
