Magic: Legends, an entirely new massively multiplayer online action role-playing game, was announced tonight during The Game Awards. While details are light, the cinematic teaser trailer is a tantalizing taste of things to come with various spells and creatures shown off throughout. The game, from Perfect World Entertainment, Cryptic Studios, and Wizards of the Coast is set to release in 2020.
More specifically, the game is apparently coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 next year. The official website allows folks to sign up for the game's beta and notes that the new MMO ARPG comes from the creators of Neverwinter, another popular RPG. That's about the extent of details for now, and none of the environments from the teaser trailer appear specific enough to speculate about.
