Hello everyone !!
A new expansion of Magic themed around Warhammer 40000 and LOTR is coming.
Universes Beyond—a series that combines the gameplay of Magic: The Gathering with worlds, characters, and stories that are cherished by millions of fans around the world.
Universes Beyond will act as a brand within Magic: The Gathering—existing in addition to and alongside our existing line of products.
Universes Beyond came about thanks to a simple thought—if we can expand our story beyond the game system to things like comics, novels, and other games, then surely we can expand the game system to let players explore worlds outside of the worlds of Magic.
We are all fans of these other universes. Many of us imagined what it might be like to play a game of Magic with Gandalf the Grey, sketched out how we might translate the One Ring to Magic, or wanted to build a deck around the mighty Space Marines. In many ways, Universes Beyond is us living out those dreams of our own.
From what I was explained, it's a separate magic game but with MTG normal rules. If it sells enough it will develop into a full format.
Could be Huge for any participating brand...
