Magic: The Gathering will get a new set based on Dungeons & Dragons during Q3 2021, titled Dungeons & Dragons: Adventures in the Forgotten Realms.
Announced during Magic’s Zendikar Adventuring Party livestream, the set will be fully standard-legal and black-bordered, meaning the set can interact with other mainline Magic sets. Check out the logo below:
No other details have been offered, other than to say neither Magic or D&D players will want to miss what’s coming, and that D&D is coming to Magic’s multiverse (although it’s not clear how extensive that crossover will be).
It was far from the only new set announced today. Magic’s Q1 2021 set will be Kaldheim, a Viking-themed set, Q2 brings Strixhaven, based in a Wizard university (essentially it sounds like Magic-but-Hogwarts), and Q4 will bring two new, full-sized Innistrad sets, one centred on werewolves and the other on vampires (with a tease of a “vampire wedding” being involved).
We also saw a Walker token based on The Walking Dead, which will be coming to Magic’s limited edition Secret Lair store in future:
Finally, we also received word that Magic: The Gathering Arena will be coming to mobile “soon” – although no other specifics were given.
If you want more Magic, check back with IGN tomorrow, when we’ll be exclusively revealing new cards from the Zendikar Rising set arriving this month.
