Magic: The Gathering Getting 40k Set

We don't normally cover Magic: The Gathering here on TGN, but we decided to make an exception in this instance. That's because Games Workshop and Wizards of the Coast are teaming up to bring you a new 40k set for the game. Yes, really. It's going to be called Universes Beyond.

From the announcement:

Warhammer is the world’s biggest name in tabletop gaming. Magic: The Gathering is the number one fantasy card game. So, what happens when you smush them both together? 

The answer can be found in Universes Beyond, a new premium card set for Magic: The Gathering which sees the game’s creators teaming up with some of the world’s biggest storytelling brands – including Warhammer 40,000. 

It’s the latest in an illustrious line of recent partnerships that have seen Games Workshop collaborate with the likes of Bandai, McFarlane Toys, and Marvel Comics to bring the worlds and characters of Warhammer to life like never before.

Universes Beyond will bring the mighty heroes, twisted villains, and fearsome xenos races of the 41st Millennium to glossy cardstock. For Warhammer 40,000 fans, it’s a chance to command the forces you know and love in an entirely fresh way – while cooing over some lavish new art, too.

And for Magic: The Gathering fans, it’s an opportunity to discover a rich universe of galactic conquest and betrayal that’s been shaped by decades of games, novels, and media.

When can you get your mitts on these cards, we hear you cry? Well, they’re a little way off yet, but you can rest assured that Warhammer Community will bring you all the latest news on this card-based collaboration.
