March 21, 2013 - RENTON, WA – Ignite Your Spark! Wizards of the Coast today announced the product lineup for Magic™ 2014 this summer, which includes the Magic 2014 – Duels of the Planeswalkers® video game* and the Magic 2014 – Core Set for the paper trading card game (TCG) and Magic Online®.
Available on the Android™ platform for the first time ever in addition to iPad®, Xbox LIVE® Arcade, Steam® and PlayStation® Network, Magic 2014 - Duels of the Planeswalkers will offer players exciting new features as they partner with Planeswalker Chandra Nalaar to track down a manipulative and dangerous Planeswalker foe. An immersive storyline and strong integration with the Magic 2014 - Core Set ties the experience together for players, culminating in an end-of-summer Magic Celebration that brings all Magic fans together in stores across the world.
“The Magic: The Gathering – Duels of the Planeswalkers franchise has been engaging and exciting gamers since we launched in 2009 and continues to be the best way for new players to learn how to play Magic,” said Worth Wollpert, Executive Producer - Magic: The Gathering at Wizards of the Coast. “This year, with the addition of a fifth platform – Android – along with new features and a more focused integration between online and offline play, we continue to deliver a best-in-class gaming experience.”
Magic 2014 – Duels of the Planeswalkers builds on the success of previous games in the franchise and adds all new features including an immersive storyline, 10 brand new decks, 15 new encounters, 10 new puzzle challenges, and an all-new play mode in addition to other exciting features. Magic 2014 players will get the first look at cards from the Magic 2014 - Core Set in Duels of the Planeswalkers, creating even more seamless integration between the online and offline games.
Attendees at the PAX East convention taking place in Boston this weekend are invited to come to the Magic: The Gathering booth (#562) to demo Magic 2014 - Duels of the Planeswalkers on PC and iPad, earn exclusive Chandra themed items, purchase current product and licensed goods and help Chandra in her quest to receive a flame-kissed picture with Chandra. Fans of the paper game will have a chance to play Magic against invited celebrities on the show floor or participate in events designed for players of all levels in Gaming Hall B. In addition, 16 players will compete for the Magic Online Championship, with tournaments running all three days of the show, and the Magic: The Gathering panel will take place on Saturday in the Corgi Theatre.
Also included in the announcement are screenshots of the gameplay in D14, and among them is a shot in which a card that will appear in Duels 2014 and possibly in M14 appears, the black mythic rare Shadowborn Demon:
Shadowborn Demon - 3BB
Creature - Demon
When Shadowborn Demon enters the battlefield, destroy target non-Demon creature.
At the beginning of your upkeep, if there are fewer than six creature cards in your graveyard, sacrifice a creature.
Duels of the Planeswalkers 2014 and Magic 2014 should be released this summer.
