    Been a longtime player of Magic and decided to give this a spin. Played through the "campaign," a few real matches against players, and tried a draft once. All in all a fun game. Will definitely give this a try on console if it has achievements.

    I saw "Eternal Announced for Xbox One" on my homepage with the byline of Lucy Wood. For some reason, I read it as "Eternal Wood Announced for Xbox One"...and I snickered...

    ...why yes...I'm not all that mentally mature.

    It will have achievements, all games do.

    Assuming its the steam list it will be a hard 100%, getting to Masters in draft is not easy

    Eternal is actually a much better game, very free to play friendly, better digital interface and a game designed for it- but still very similar to magic.

    Arena only just went into open beta, will likely be years until they get to consoles, not even on phones yet!

    I've been playing MTG for too long now, I'm too much used to it, and pretty reluctant to get involved in another CCG game^^

    I find CCGs are like learning new languages once you’ve learnt one it’s much easier to learn a second, third etc. There are many transferable skills, you just have to learn the basic mechanics than are different in each game.

    Eternal is basically magic in most of its mechanics, its made by Dire Wolf, which includes people like LSV, Pat Chapin, Conley Woods- a whole bunch of Magic pros and Hall of Famers.

    If you want a great CCG that you can play on your mobile (and soon xbox) I would seriously give it a try- the tutorial is a bit of a drag if you have skills from Magic, but once you are past it and into the game its great.

    Has a bunch of good PVE modes as well as the usual PVP ones, it is also really easy to build up a collection- unlike Arena :)

    Do cards/progress carry across platforms? Would probably give this a try if I could work on it on my phone and then come back and pop some achievements on the Xbox.

    Still, I know I won't be involved in it because it's a F2P. Other than Magic, I'd prefer games like Hand of Fate (still haven't tried it) because I know it won't disappear anytime soon because I "own" it.

    And about CCG games, I only play Magic digitally because I play Magic in real life, those kind of games are better played physically, so it might be interesting, but not enough so I play it right away (in terms of F2P most of the time I start them when TA announce a server closure^^).

    It has 100% crossplay, so Xbox/phone/steam all the same account :)

    I imagine its why its Xbox and not on PS4 :)

    It is insanely generous ftp though, So it is far from the Hearthstone etc model.

    However if completion is an issue for you, this will be a tough one- getting to Master Rank in Draft is not easy- I haven’t managed it yet

    Thanks! Downloaded it and set up my account. Looks good, may play it even if I decide to not go for the achievements.
