The developers at Cyptic Studios recently released an update for the PC open beta of Magic: Legends, the new free-to-play ARPG set in the Multiverse of Magic: The Gathering. In addition to the gameplay improvements and technical fixes, the Dimir Assassin class (as well as the Nightveil Stalker Spell and Dimir Assassin Costume) is now available as the level 50 reward in both free and premium tracks of the battlepass (alongside continued availability in the Booster Pack).
Here’s a class overview of Dimir Assassin:
The Dimir Assassin epitomizes Ravnica’s House Dimir, capable of setting up their enemies for devastating combo attacks and always fighting on their terms with a strong sense of control before exploiting a weakness to catastrophic effect. This stealthy and agile new Planeswalker class also includes the following unlocks:
- Dimir Assassin Costume – Unlocked account-wide and equippable at any Tailor in-game.
- Disinformation (Trait – Unlocked at class Level 30): Whenever you draw a spell, creatures you control gain Lesser Resistance for 5 seconds. Whenever you discard a spell, enemies within 15 ft gain Greater Vulnerability for 5 seconds.
- Nightveil Stalker (Spell – unlocked immediately): The Nightveil Stalker is a Mythic Rare spirit Assassin Creature spell with Hexproof. Upon entering the battlefield, it deals damage to a foe and stuns them. As its special ability, for every third spell you draw, it teleports to an enemy and does damage to them, but loses its hexproof ability for a short time.
The update comes about a week after the launch of the PC open beta. You can watch the cinematic trailer here for the Magic: Legends PC open beta here.
Here’s the official description for Magic: Legends:
An ancient force moves in the darkness, requiring adventurers to traverse various planes of the Magic: The Gathering Multiverse and gather the power needed to fight this evil. Developed by Cryptic Studios and published by Perfect World Entertainment, players will choose their path through the planes while collecting and upgrading a multitude of spells to create a powerful spell library. Players control the chaos of spell-slinging combat as they fight to save the Multiverse from its greatest threats yet.
Magic: Legends Open Beta is now available on PC. It will be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One when it officially launches later this year. Don’t forget to check out more details about the Open Beta here.
