Wizards of the Coast today announced the Magic: The Gathering 2012 product line-up featuring the Magic: The Gathering 2012 Core Set for the paper trading card game (TCG) and Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 on Xbox LIVE© Arcade, PC/Steam and PlayStation® Network this summer.
"We are thrilled with the success of Magic: The Gathering and the tremendous growth of our player community worldwide," said Greg Leeds, President, Wizards of the Coast. "Smart, strategic and competitive gamers love to get together to battle and have fun using their intellectual strengths. With more than 12 million players and fans in more than 70 countries and 500,000 units of Duels of the Planeswalkers sold on XBLA, Magic is experiencing record growth and delivering players a truly integrated gaming experience across both digital and real world."
Building on the success of the original Duels of the Planeswalkers, Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 will introduce all new game modes, Planeswalker opponents, decks, puzzle challenges and other exciting new features when it launches on Xbox LIVE© Arcade, PC/Steam and PlayStation® Network this summer.
With an easy to use tutorial, Duels of the Planeswalkers is the best way for new players to learn Magic: The Gathering. Players that are already familiar with Magic will enjoy a new-to-digital multiplayer game mode called Archenemy where players gather up to two allies and team up against the AI.
Attendees at the PAX East convention in Boston are welcome to gather their allies into three person teams to participate in the hands-on demo of the Archenemy game mode for Duels 2012 at the Magic: The Gathering booth (#648). A variety of Magic: The Gathering events for the paper TCG product will also be available in Gaming Hall B.
