Magic: The Gathering Arena Available On iOS This Week

Magic: The Gathering Arena is coming to a new audience on March 25, as the game is expanding to iOS devices. The update will also include performance updates for Android players, which should make the mobile title run better on a variety of smartphones.

While iOS fans are likely glad to hear the popular title is finally making its way to their preferred platform, the MTG Arena team did share some bad news about “an occasional issue that makes you appear offline even when you’re online.” A workaround is currently listed on the official MTG Arena website, although a more permanent solution is in development.

Along with the iOS announcement, Wizards of the Coast shared info about Strixhaven: School of Mages.

“Strixhaven: School of Mages is coming, and we have some beautiful cosmetics to show you when preorders are available. The Kasmina 50 Strixhaven Packs preorder includes one copy of Kasmina, Enigma Sage, and the depth art card style for it, plus an Enigma Sage card sleeve you can use right away before Strixhaven launches.”

The Professor Onyx Mastery Pass preorder includes:

  • Strixhaven Set Mastery Pass
  • 3 Draft Tokens
  • 1 Sealed Token
  • 1 Copy of the Professor Onyx card and the depth art card style for it.
  • 1 Professor Onyx card sleeve
  • 1 Codie the Codex Pet

To learn more about the preorder, check out the official MTG Arena website.

Arena isn’t the only game in the Magic family that’s sharing big news this week, as Magic: Legends is now available in open beta. The action RPG from Cryptic Studios is radically different from Arena and features a Diablo-like gameplay style – while still retaining that special Magic charm.

The Magic: Legends beta is available through the Epic Games Store or Cryptic’s own launcher, Arc. Each platform offers specific rewards to players, such as the Bruiser skin and two drop boosters on Arc, and a Moorland Ranger costume and Werewolf summon skin on Steam. If you’re an iOS player waiting to access Arena on March 25, Legends seems like the perfect way to bide your time.

Magic: The Gathering Arena will be available on iOS on March 25.
