Magic: The Gathering appears to be on a roll. First, a PC game inspired by this collectible card game started its open beta. Now, Magic: The Gathering Arena rolled out on mobile devices. The game can be downloaded for free on Google Play and the App Store.

The mobile version gives players an on-the-go Magic: The Gathering game. To ensure user experience, developers optimized the touch screen controls for easy navigation. That’s not all since mobile players can match not only against other mobile users but also those on the PC.

Magic: The Gathering is a collectible card game that offers deep strategic gameplay that served delight for fans for at least 25 years. In 2019, the digital version was officially launched on PC.

In terms of features, both PC and mobile versions are pretty much the same. Mobile players can access the same card sets, formats, events, and deck building, among many others. It even has the latest set, Kaldheim. Players who already have existing Wizards Accounts no longer need to make a new one as they can be accessed on smartphones and tablets.

In a statement, Wizards of the Coast Executive Producer Chris Cao revealed that the digital version was able to grow through the support of the community. He added that having the game on mobile is a step in the right direction as it introduces the game to more players no matter where they are in the world.

Below are the recommended specs for mobile devices:

  • iOS version 13 or higher.
  • Android Version 6.0 Marshmallow or newer
    • RAM: 4GB or more
    • Graphics API: OpenGL ES 3.0
    • Texture Compression: ETC2
