Last March, Magic: Legends launched in open beta. On November 1, the online action game will close its doors forever. This is what Perfect World and Cryptic Studios announce on the official website.
After a short year of testing, we remember that Magical legends started its open beta last March. Obviously, the game will not go beyond this stage and will never be officially released. Through a press release published today, the publisher Perfect entertainment in the world announces the closure of Magic Legends at the end of this open beta, specifically on November 1, 2021.
With great regret we announce that Magic: Legends will close its doors at the end of its open beta on PC, the November 1, 2021. The amount of all in-game purchases made through Arc and theEpic games The store will be fully refunded. The servers will remain available and you can play until the official closing day, but the store (ZEN Store) will be deactivated at the end of the week. All the items it contained can now be purchased with Aether, the free in-game currency.
The vision we had for Magic: Legends It was not up to the task, but nonetheless, we are proud of how far we have come. Thanks to Wizards of the Coast, we had the opportunity to put the Multiverse of Magic: The Gathering accessible to as many people as possible and to explore new approaches to the iconic genre A-Role playing game. We have learned important lessons that we will use to enhance future development efforts of Cryptic.
Above all, we would like to thank all the players who explored the Multiverse with us for their feedback and feedback during the testing phases. alpha and beta. We would never have gotten this far without you!
The publisher specifies that all purchases made in the game store, either through Arc or Epic Games Store, will be fully refunded (in money for credit card expenses, in Arc credits with an additional € 10 in compensation for purchases made with prepaid cards). .
If the first results of the alpha are positive, on the occasion of the launch of the Magic Legends bêta ouverte a été un brin chaotique – the jeu a fait l’objet de plusieurs refontes (le jeu a d’abord été present as a MMORPG before taking the form of an online action game) and players did not always find what they thought they would find there (such as a dimension of hack & slash). We especially remember that since the opening of the store, the economic model of the game raised many doubts and that the Cryptic studio teams went astray for a long time before refining the paid offer of Magic Legends. The studio does not communicate any specific reason for this early closure of the game’s servers, but we imagine that the monetization of Magic Legends associated with its ability to retain players is not entirely unrelated.
Anyway, we will retain that the curious have until November 1 to discover the game before its closure: the developer announces the next deployment of a patch that will allow you to buy all the items in the store for Ether, the free currency of Magic: Legends.
