For today's post we will breifly step away from Magic 2013 ('M13') Spoilers and check out some other Magic the Gathering goodness. More specifically, we'll have a look at Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 digital game promotion. In the past when these games were released, players were treated to a physical (paper) Mythic Rare card but this time around there is some improved swag.
First, a quick overview . . .
The Magic: The Gathering 2013 Core Set campaign begins with the launch of Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 on 20th June, 2012. To date there have been 2 million downloads on Xbox Live, Steam and Playstation Network platforms. With this new release, there will also be available a release for iPad so you could now game while on the subway to work or even at work while in that tedious / tiresome staff meeting - just make sure you game on the low down under the boardroom (bored-room) meeting table.
Anywhoos - here's the juice. Instead of a singular card, you will now score an exclusive 6-card booster pack promo containing one alternate-art promo card plus five other random Magic 2013 core set cards.
Playstation 3 - Vampire Nocturnus
XBOX 360 - Primordial Hydra
Steam (PC) and iPad - Serra Avatar
OK - How to get your paws on this ? After the official release on the 20th of this month until 13 December 2013, when you first launch your new game, you'll get a code to enter on the Wizards of the Coast mothersite which will spit out a voucher to print off. Take the voucher to your local participating store and receive the cardboard goodness.
Here's a quick comparative of the DoTP 2013 promos to the regular Magic 2013 cards . . . Do the alt-arts float your boat ? Epic - pump it or Lame - dump it.
