The wizards, warlords, Winter Orbs and Whippoorwhills of Magic: The Gathering are returning once again this year in a new downloadable Duels of the Planeswalkers game. This year's instalment, Magic 2014 - Duels of the Planeswalkers, is adding a new platform to its hand, coming to Android as well as PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
The 2014 iteration will bring 10 new decks, 15 new encounters, 10 new puzzles, and one mysterious new game mode. It'll have a sampling of the cardboard game's 2014 'Core Set' too.
Duels of the Planeswalkers, if you've missed it, is an adaptation of the immensely successful and staggeringly long-running collectible card game. It's faithful and provides enough Magic to scratch the itch of recovering addicts, but doesn't let you create your own decks from scratch. Instead, you unlock decks and extra cards to customise them by beating opponents.
The announcement trailer introduces Chandra Nalaar, one of the five planeswalkers who'll appear in the 2014 Core Set. It's fair to guess we'll see her and the others in DotP, then.
