Today table-top games giant Wizards of the Coast released some new details about the up coming sequel Magic: The Gathering Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012. Slated to arrive on June 15 for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3, Duels 2012 features a whole slew of improvements over the previous iteration. These changes include:
- Improved Deck Editing
- Enhanced Co-Op Game Play
- All New Multiplayer Game Mode “Archenemy”
- New Planeswalker Opponents
- New Decks and Puzzle Challenges
- Integration between the digital and paper product offering – Duels players get the first look at cards from the upcoming Magic 2012 Core Set releasing July 15, 2011
It is also said that Duels 2012 will feature “strategic single player campaign game scenarios” as well as “competitive play, robust community features and un-lockable content.”
As a long time Magic: The Gathering fan, I really look forward to checking this game out. I played quite a bit of the original Duels of the Planeswalkers on the PC and had a great time with it. My biggest gripe with the game was the limitations on deck edition, however seeing as how that issue will be addressed in Duels 2012 puts a smile on my face.
