The first deck pack for the 2013 expansion of Duels of the Planeswalkers is here. Deck Pack #1, released earlier this month from Wizards of the Coast, features two new decks â€“ Acts of War, and Sky and Scale. These will be available individually on Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStation Network, Steam, and iPad starting this week, on November 21. You can still buy them as a pair, as well as their foil conversions, for $2.99.
The Red and White Acts of War deck promises to unleash an onslaught as your heroes hack and slash their way to victory, bolstered by potent spells to aid them if they falter. With Sky and Storm, titanic flying creatures will dominate the skies as you build momentum with this slower Blue and Green deck.
The Duels of the Planeswalkers platform is entering its fourth year on the market since the original game was launched. The popular video game adaptation of Magic: The Gathering has a streamlined arcade format to allow players to replicate the experience of live table gaming from the original Collectible Card Game, while mixing in the advantages of a massively multiplayer environment. Duels of the Planeswalkers, and its follow-up Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012, have remained high on the bestseller charts on the Xbox LIVE Arcade since the original was introduced. Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 was released in summer of 2012.
