Watch the new Magic: Legends clip before the Open Beta this month
Cryptic Studios and Perfect World Entertainment have released a new clip for Magic: Legends, the upcoming free-to-play action RPG based on Wizards of the Coast’s popular trading card game, Magic: The Gathering.
The official Twitter page of Magic: Legends has shared the clip featuring one of the Regional Enchantments: the Burning enchantment, which covers enemies in mystical flames, dealing damage over time to you and nearby allies.
Watch the clip below:
The developers recently released a new video and developer blog highlighting the Regional and World enchantments in Magic: Legends. In the video, lead design Adam Hetenyi explains how Regional enchantments work.
“Beginning at the ‘Hard’ difficulty and harder, each of the game’s regions and their corresponding overworld and mission maps can have a Regional Enchantment,” Hetenyi said. “While on Hard difficulty, Regional Enchantments are optional, whereas, on Expert and Master difficulties, these enchantments are automatically applied. Regional Enchantments modify combat in that region in various ways, and the active enchantment(s) rotate every few weeks. For example: Burning covers enemies in that region in mystical flames, dealing damage over time to you and your nearby allies. Final Explosion causes the deaths of enemies to trigger massive, damage-dealing blasts. “
