Magic: The Gathering Expansion Pack 3 Released

By Rebecca Smith, 8 years ago
Edit: It has been confirmed that there are indeed three achievements included with this DLC, worth a total of 50g. However, these are still to be added to, so it is advisable that you refrain from playing the DLC until they have been added. For those of you who have unlocked some achievements already, these will not count towards your gamerscore at the moment. To get the achievements to register once they have been added to, you will have to recover your gamertag and re-earn them unfortunately.

Original Story:

Stainless Games have finally released the third expansion pack for Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers.

The ancient evil dragon Planeswalker Nicol Bolas commanded Sarkhan Vol to guard Zendikar’s mysterious Eye of Ugin. In the Eye’s chamber, the dragon-worshipping shaman slowly spiraled into madness. Expansion Pack 3 features new cards and new decks from the latest Magic: The Gathering trading card game sets. Wield Sorin Markov’s “Master of Shadows” deck, unlock three new cards for each deck you already own, and defeat eight new campaign levels to unlock Gideon Jura’s “Rally of Righteousness” and Niv-Mizzet’s “Root of the Firemind” decks. This expansion pack also contains four new Two-Headed Giant co-op levels as well as five new puzzling challenge levels.
Any achievements for this expansion pack are yet to appear on However, both the PS3 and Steam versions of the expansion pack have three additional achievements. It is fair to assume that the XBLA version will also have three achievements, worth a total of 50g, to take the game's total up to the maximum quota of 350g for an arcade game.

Expansion Pack 3 is priced at 400 MSP; the download link is in the DLC title.
