The pre-alpha footage shows two of the five playable classes in action. The Geomancer uses the powers of the earth such as fire and stone to attack enemies, whilst the Mind Mage takes more of a ranged approach using psychic and telekinetic powers. The trailer also serves as a sneak peek at two of the game's landscapes form the Magic universe, the volcanic island Shiv and dark swamps of Benalia.
Perfect World officially announced the Magic: The Gathering MMO at the Game Awards last month with a flashy cinematic trailer (opens in new tab), although Cryptic Studios first announced their plans for a Magic MMO adaptation back in 2017.
For more information about the game's classes, worlds, and beta access can be found on the Magic: Legends official website (opens in new tab). Magic: Legends releases on PC and consoles sometime in 2020.
