The Magic: The Gathering card game has stood the test of time, holding the crown as one of the most popular games of its kind. While nothing beats collecting, building decks and playing Magic in person, the launch of Duels Of The Planeswalkers on the Xbox 360 opened the world of Magic up to people who would have otherwise never given the game a chance. Now, Duels Of The Planeswalkers is making its way to the Steam platform.
While it had been announced last year that the game would be making its way over to the PS3 and PC sometime this year, it’s nice to see that Duels Of The Planeswalkers will be distributed through Steam. This means the inclusion of leaderboards, achievements, downloadable content, and the multiplayer you expect from a game so focused on community.
The pre-loading of Duels Of the Planeswalkers begins today, so it won’t be much longer until you can get your hands on more digital Magic. Did I mention that it will only cost $9.99, and that along with the base game, PC gamers will also receive the first expansion pack?
How do you feel about trading card games being translated to video games? Have you already picked this up on the Xbox 360, or do you plan on picking it up when it launches on Steam?
