Two and a half years ago, we heard that Cryptic Studios was working on a Magic: The Gathering MMORPG -- and really haven't heard much else since (though that didn't stop us from trying to predict what it would be). At tonight's Game Awards, it was officially announced. It's got a name, Magic: Legends, and it's an "Action-RPG," according to its website.

There are a few more words to describe the game on Twitter, but not much in terms of solid gameplay details:

"Action RPG" could mean an ARPG in the style of Path of Exile, though the term could also apply to a first- or third-person RPGs with fast-paced, non-tab-target fighting. Without much more to go on than that, we'll pass on the speculating this time around, but hopefully we'll learn more -- gameplay, release window, and most of all, whether it'll be free-to-play -- in early 2020.

And dont forget the part of neverwinter with 0.05% of number of classes neverwinter and d&d has. And dont forget the low updates on some of his games Like Champions online. Small studio trying to maintain to many games.

If its like all their other mmos with only US servers, no thank you. Playing Neverwinter with 150ms ping from Europe is not fun at all.
