Those pesky wizards are starting to gather again, loitering in pub doorways and looking to start fights, which can only mean its about time for Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 to arrive. Wizards of the Coast announced today that downloadable duelling will commence on June 20, across PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and, for the first time, iPad.
Stainless's 2013 iteration of the addictive collectible card game brings new decks, challenges, cards from the 2013 Core Set, and a new Planechase multiplayer mode. But why do you need to buy a whole new game? Why can't you simply buy the stuff as DLC, as one buys cards from a new expansion? In part, at least, it's down to Microsoft's Xbox Live limitations.
There's no word yet on how much it'll cost, though $10 seems likely--the same as past versions. Presumably the iPad version will be cheaper, mind.
