No, you don’t have to wait until next year. (You can blame Detroit for the auto-inspired naming convention.) MTG:DOTP2k13 launches June 20 for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC, and (new!) iPad. Now you can nerd it up anywhere!
In the interim, we’ve scored a preview build of the game, and for the first time today you’ll get to see some of the decks and gameplay elements new to this year’s version.
Please keep in mind this is an incomplete build, so the final game will most likely have more features, decks, unlockable cards, and other content. That said, I’ll be updating this post with more information as I’m able to disseminate it.
That said, my first thought is that the game, while a small update from 2012, is a large improvement in terms of balance and presentation. Is that enough to warrant a yearly, one-time purchase of $10? For most Magic and Duels fans… yes.
