Magic The Gathering Arena has an additional set of cards and a Dungeons & Dragons crossover, as Adventures in the Forgotten Realms arrives in game.
Available now across PC, Mac, iOS, and Android, the latest update to Magic: The gathering Arena introduces a whole new adventure and a total of 327 new cards to the title that first showed its hand back in 2019. After we scored this release positively in our initial review, the team behind this digital deck builder has been steadily working to keep players entertained. Now, this huge update to the Magic title is also the very first deck to introduce the world of Dungeons & Dragons to Magic: The Gathering. Introducing an iconic tabletop franchise in an altogether new environment.
Players picking up this brand crossover will find familiar friends and foes on offer. Iconic creatures and characters are slotted throughout the deck, such as Mimics, Gelatinous Cubes and iconic hero Drizzt Do’Urde. Three new mechanics will keep things fresh for veterans of both series, allowing players to venture into well-known locations. Mighty warriors and meek mages will be able to explore three iconic dungeons; The Tomb Of Annihilation, Lost Mines of Phandelver, and Dungeon of the Mad Mage.
Flavor text plays a crucial role, called enchantments, as one of the three aforementioned mechanics. This add on allows players to use specific class abilities that will aid them throughout the game. Finally, and just to keep things interesting, Magic has added in a D20 roll, and did we mention there are also Dragons?
