The wizarding battlefields of Master of Magic have become even more spellbinding with today’s release of the free major update Through the Myrror on Steam, bringing a host of new content to the epic fantasy 4X game. Get ready to challenge both planes of existence with four new grand wizards, the new druidic and diminutive Goblins, three new heroes, as well as new skills, monsters, and spells.
Polish studio MuHa Games and strategy publisher Slitherine aim to constantly improve the recently launched Master of Magic, with Through the Myrror being the first of many updates, big and small, to come. Released in December 2022, Master of Magic has been popularly received by both newcomers and veterans of the timeless original from the 1990s.
In Master of Magic, players command one of 14 extraordinary and diverse grand wizards who, locked in spell-flinging competition, aim to dominate the magical worlds of Arcanus and Myrror. They lead fantastic armies of otherworldly creatures, from orcs to elves and dragons, and use potent spells based on a complex system of magic schools, dark rituals, research, and unique items. In the end, there can only be one Master of Magic.
The major update summons four new wizards, available to all players of Master of Magic for free. From the powerful Draconian Raa’ss, master of Chaos and Death, to Bianka, the Dwarven Runekeeper. A new faction, the tribal Goblins, can also be controlled. Their size might not impress, but these green-skinned druidic humanoids are supremely in touch with nature, fielding Boar Riders and Beastmasters to battle. Players will also be able to use new hero skills, from Summoning Fat Rats to becoming a Foodie, allowing them to relish the delectable, which in turn strengthens them in combat.
New Wizard traits provide even more personality and power to a player’s magic wielder, such as Fantastic Warlord, Lifebringer, or Nature Summoner. Last, three new heroes join the fray: the Goblin Toadsworth the Boartamer, Bjorn the Fireborn, and Jotun the Icetroll. Through the Myrror also brings a host of other updates for all to enjoy in Master of Magic, from new monsters (Boar and Fat Rats) to multi-hex road construction and remappable hotkeys.
