Magic The Gathering Tactics Coming In 2010

Magic the Gathering

As if Magic the Gathering wasn’t bad enough. It’s already take over the lives of friends and made loved ones consider $60 purchases (that’s for one card, folks), now the evil geniuses at Wizards of the Coast are partnering with Sony Online Entertainment to create Magic: The Gathering – Tactics, a 3D turn-based game set in the Magic universe. Single player and multiplayer will be included, as well as frequent expansions to steal more precious resources away from us. The PC version should make an appearance early in 2010, with a PlayStation 3 version to follow. Though, this isn’t the card game that I know and love, I’m a sucker for strategy games so I can’t wait!

The official release follows inside:

Today, Sony Online Entertainment LLC, and Wizards of the Coast LLC announced they are developing Magic: The Gathering – Tactics, an online, 3D turn-based strategy game played within the rich Magic: The Gathering Multiverse.

“By collaborating with Wizards of the Coast, we’re able to combine the strengths of both companies to develop an innovative, online, 3D game based on an extremely popular IP,” said John Smedley, president, Sony Online Entertainment. “We’re going to be taking the Magic: The Gathering Multiverse places players have never seen.”

“The growing Magic: The Gathering community has an insatiable desire for great strategic game experiences. Sony Online Entertainment is the perfect partner to transform the best of Magic’s story, strategy and competitive play into a fantastic ‘Tactics’ game experience for current and new Magic fans,” said Greg Leeds, president, Wizards of the Coast.

Magic: The Gathering – Tactics will allow players to command forces of dramatic 3D figures and powerful spell cards pulled from the Magic: The Gathering Multiverse. Players can participate in single player scenarios or jump right into PVP action against other players worldwide, 24 hours per day. Magic: The Gathering – Tactics is expected to feature regular content expansions, a robust tournament environment, an achievement and rankings program, and original stories of the Planeswalkers of Magic: The Gathering.

Magic: The Gathering – Tactics is being developed by SOE’s Denver studio and scheduled to be available for the PC in early 2010, with a version for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system to follow.
