Magic Legends will launch with three worlds to explore

If you’re coming to Magic Legends without much prior knowledge of the card game, you might not know that the franchise is set in a multiverse of diverse locales. Cryptic is aiming to capitalize on this flexibility by rolling out different settings over time.

The studio announced this week that when it launches, Magic Legends is going to feature three worlds to explore. The three settings are Dominaria, a world rebuilding after cataclysmic events; Zendikar, a world that’s being reclaimed by nature; and Innistrad, a gothic world under assault by vampires and werewolves.

“Following years and months of narrative planning, we are excited to confirm that Magic Legends takes place in a time of building tensions: after the Great Mending of Dominaria, and before the Hour of Devastation on Amonkhet,” Cryptic said.

“three worlds to explore”

Thats a fancy way of saying, “It will have 3 Acts to play through”

Meanwhile…

Diablo 2 and 3, “I’ve got 5 nah nah nah”
Path of Exile, “Technically Ive got 10, but more realistically its 5 repeated twice.”
Grim Dawn, “Lol ‘acts’… ”
Wolcen, “hey buddy, you and me both. Woo go 3!!”

grim dawn has acts, but only 1, 2 and the expansion acts are obvious in terms of beginning and end.
also path of exile “don’t worry though, we be making 7 more”

The thing with grim dawn, is that the world is seemless, so unlike other games that have obvious transitions between acts, with loading screens, Grim dawn just keeping on chugging along as if its all one big giant act. Its acts are less about transitioning between biomes, and more about transitioning between story chapters.

Set before the hour of devastation? So there are no stakes to the story? Jeez

Well, if they’d set it after Hour of Devastation, it would be an empty, post-apocalyptic wasteland.

I’m not as up on my MtG timeline as I used to be, but IIRC the gap between The Mending and Hour of Devastation is like… 50-60 years? Which makes this a bit like saying, “our shooter is set in the period between World War I and Vietnam.” Accurate, but not really helpful in narrowing down expectations. :)
