Magic: Legends

Magic: Legends was an action role-playing game (RPG) similar to Diablo, where the player directs their character by pointing and clicking to locations on screen to either move, attack opponents, or use special abilities as they complete missions. In following the Magic: The Gathering (MTG) canon, each player takes the role of a new Planeswalker, one gifted in the ability to draw mana from the lands to cast spells, and to travel between worlds of the multiverse. Initially the player selects a Planeswalker type based on the five schools or colors of magic from MTG, which also describes their base attack and abilities. As the player-character grows, they gain spell cards that define additional abilities or can summon creatures to help fight; these cards are based on actual cards from MTG. However, these cards are drawn randomly from a deck of twelve that the player assembles before setting out on a mission, with four cards available at any time. Once a player casts one of these cards, the card is placed back into the deck and a new card automatically drawn to fill the slot. In addition, the player must gather sufficient mana to cast the spells. Mana regenerates slowly over time as well as dropped by enemies, and if the player opts to include cards from different schools, the mana drops will be randomly generated in proportion to the card colors in their deck, meaning that the player may need to wait for the right colored mana to appear before casting some spells. However, mixing cards from different schools can create powerful in-game combinations, as with the card game itself, and the game gives the player the opportunity to tune their deck to find successful mixes of cards. Between missions, the player interacts at a base hub to gear up for missions, rework their deck, and use in-game currency to purchase new gear or cards as well as to unlock the other Planeswalker characters. The game uses free-to-play model that will allow players to spend real-world funds as to buy items that otherwise may require a high cost of in-game currency. The game's universe consists of many overworlds based on the various planes of Magic's multiverse, during which players will having random public encounters with various enemies alongside other players, visit quest-givers and shops, and other functions. Various portals lead to single or small-team quest instances; these can be configured to be more difficult with various modifiers as to drop better rewards if the quest is completed successfully. Rewards from both overworld and instanced quests include in-game currency, character gear, and scrolls for the cards in their currently equipped deck. Cards with enough scrolls can be upgraded to more powerful versions, limited by the player's own Planeswalker's experience level. (Source: Wikipedia -
