Magic DotP 2012 DLC Now Available

By Dog of Thunder, 7 years ago
The first DLC pack for Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 is now available. In case you missed our original coverage, here's the product description to get you caught up to speed:

You can become the Archenemy for the first time in the Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 Expansion, taking on three rival Planeswalkers at once. Plus, enjoy three new playable decks, four new unlockable cards for each of the ten original decks, four new puzzling challenges, new cards from Innistrad, and seventeen new single-player campaign levels. Put your spell-slinging skills to the test and try to defeat Liliana Vess, Ajani Goldmane, and Ral Zarek to unlock their new decks! (This expansion pack requires the most recent Title Update for Magic 2012.)
I understand that may not seem too exciting for you, but the most important part of that quote is "new cards from Innistrad." You see, Innistrad is, as mentioned previously, not available yet in stores. This means that starting today you can play with digital cards a full 12 days before the Pre-release.

You can view all officially revealed cards from Innistrad here: Innistrad Card Image Gallery.

I am not sure exactly which Innistrad cards will be available, but allow me to blow your mind as to the new card type being introduced for this expansion:

That's right - double sided cards. I am fairly certain that these are a bit too complex for Magic 2012 to include, but nonetheless you can check out the Innistrad Mechanics page and learn just how these mind-benders work.

"Ascend into Darkness" is available for 400 MSP and can be purchased here. 3 new achievements have been added for a total of 50 GS.
