Magic: The Gathering Arena Is Coming To Steam May 23

Wizards of the Coast has announced at MagicCon that Magic: The Gathering Arena is finally coming to Steam later this month over three years after its initial release. Wizards confirmed back in December last year that the free-to-play title would be launching on Steam at some point in the near future, but has now announced a release date of May 23 for Magic fans to look forward to.

While details other than the release date are fairly thin on the ground at the moment, it has been clarified that Magic: The Gathering Arena’s Steam release will still support crossplay with other platforms. That means you’ll still be able to play against people playing on Windows and MAc as well as iOS and Android.

For those that haven’t heard of MTG Arena, it’s essentially a digital version of the physical game and supports both Constructed Deck play and Limited play. It is free-to-play, which means there are some optional microtransactions included which lets players guy in-game currency. These can be used to purchase booster packs to help build up your decks, or can be used to enter yourself into certain events. It’s a fairly popular method of playing Magic if you can’t get to any physical games, and will now be available to a lot more people with the Steam release.
