MTG Arena Coming to Epic Games Store This Winter

There's another platform option for playing MTG Arena on PC.

Today Wizards of the Coast announced that MTG Arena, the latest PC version of the fan-favorite Magic the Gathering collectible card game, is coming to the Epic Games Store. MTG Arena is seperate from Magic: The Gathering Online, the more robust PC client Wizards of the Coast has been operating since 2002.

The game is currently in open beta and available for direct download on the official MTG Arena site. Even after the Epic Games Store launch, MTG Arena will remain available on the official site. Existing players will not be required to make an Epic account following the EGS launch.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with Epic to expand Magic's reach to new gamers from around the world. The Epic Games Store will be our exclusive third-party PC download partner," says Wizards of the Coast in an official announcement post.

MTG Arena will follow the Epic Games Store release with a release on Mac.

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
