Magic Duels: Origins Pays Up Whether You Win Or Lose
We didn't get to send anyone to E3, but that doesn't mean we can't take advantage of the collective knowledge everyone else gathered there!
Over at Escapist Magazine, Joshua Vanderwall looks to have received some serious time with Magic Duels: Origins, the free-to-play version of Wizards of the Coast's iconic CCG that launches in July. If you like how Hearthstone handles its microtransactions, you're in luck, though it differs from Blizzard's game in several key ways.
As with Hearthstone, you can earn all cards for free, or spend real money to accelerate the process. There will be daily quests to net you more gold, as well as community quests that require all players to combine forces to achieve something. (The totally made-up example he gives is "Deal 1 million damage with red sorceries.") The Deck Wizard will be a great help to players who might not be used to Magic's rather complex deckbuilding, and matches against the AI will feature randomized decks. And if you're just not that good at Magic? Don't fret! You'll earn gold for every match you play, win or lose.
It all looks like a pretty good package and something we're definitely looking forward to next month!
