Better bust out your best pair of Planeswalking boots, Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios (Champions Online, Star Trek Online, Neverwinter) revealed today that they were working on a free-to-play action MMORPG based on Wizards of the Coast’s long-running card game, Magic: The Gathering.
The mythology around Magic is rich, and quite awesome in many parts, so it lends itself quite well to the open experiences that an MMORPG can provide.
But about all we have right now in regards to the game is a not-so-cryptic landing page on theofficial site, and some cheery press release speak. Turns out, Cryptic and Perfect World are super excited about being given the chance to do something with a multi-million dollar license.
Some actual gameplay should show up soon. Maybe not E3 soon, but soon.
