Those hoping for more information on Cryptic’s upcoming M:TG-based ARPG Magic: Legends are in luck today — especially if they’re interested in the Beastcaller Class. The developer shared a fairly sizeable video showing off the class’s gameplay with IGN earlier today, and it seems like everything one might expect from a class with with “Beast” in the name.
Since it’s a gameplay video, it does offer a look at some of the game’s narrative, voice acting, and all that — although nothing seems too spoiler-ific. Most of the video is focused on combat out in the world — where we get to see the Beastcaller’s abilities. This includes one that appears to summon a herd of… something… to attack his foes. He also summons phantom-like beasts on occasion and is always accompanied by a pet that aids in battle. The rest of his abilities seem to be tied to his ax — spinning attacks and broad swings as well as others.
If you have the time — or just want to slack at work for a little bit — the video can be viewed below.
Also of note for those attending PAX East: If you were worried that Magic: Legends might not be there, they are. As of today — and for the entire weekend — you’ll be able to find them at the Perfect World booth (booth 17075 on the show floor). A demo will be available for players to check out while they’re there.
