Magic 2015 Debuts on Xbox One Alongside Garruk's Revenge


What's better than waiting five more turns than you need to just to make sure you get the last bit of mana you need to cast that gamebreaking card? Waiting a few more months to get the latest incarnation of Magic: The Gathering on Xbox One. For the first time, Magic 2015-Duels of the Planeswalkers is available for download on Xbox One. The game's latest expansion, Garruk's Revenge, will also release today on Xbox One, iPad via the iTunes Store, PC via Steam, Android via Google Play and Amazon Marketplace, with Xbox 360 coming soon.

Garruk's Revenge puts the fate of Garruk Wildspeaker, the deadliest hunter in the Multiverse, in players' hands. With four new Campaign levels and an expanded Explore level, players take on the role of Garruk, using his deck to battle their way through challenging foes. With every victory, Garruk's deck strengthens, becoming more and more corrupt. The Expansion features a collection of fan-favorite cards from the Shards of Alara block, which players unlock to later modify their own deck creations as they hunt their prey across the planes of the Multiverse.

Along with the release of Garruk's Revenge, all cards available to players in the original Magic 2015 campaign, Hunt Bigger Game and the Expansion are now entirely earnable through gameplay.

Garruk's Revenge is available today on Xbox One, PC via Steam, Apple iPad, Android via Google Play, and Amazon Marketplace for $4.99 with Xbox 360 to follow. The Hunt Bigger Game Campaign is available on all platforms, including Xbox One, for $9.99.
