Sony Online Entertainment and Wizards of the Coast will launch Magic:  The Gathering—Tactics, a new online game, in early 2010.  The new game is described as “an online, 3D turn-based strategy game” played in the Magic Multiverse.  Players will command 3D figures and spell cards in single player scenarios or PVP play.  Content will be expanded regularly, and players will be able to participate in tournaments, an achievement and rankings program, and have access to original stories of the Planeswalkers of Magic:  The Gathering.    


This will represent the second online game based on the world of Magic:  The Gathering; Wizards of the Coast runs Magic Online, an online collectible card game based on the tabletop version.
