From Press Release:

Get ready for wizarding this Christmas! The timeless fantasy strategy Master of Magic has reached gold status ahead of its worldwide release on the 13th of December, 2022, on PC – the same day as Slitherine’s live event – Slitherine Next.

The new cult classic, combining fantasy RPG with deeply-woven, challenging 4X strategy, is jointly developed by Slitherine, the renowned strategy and wargame publisher, and Polish studio MuHa Games. They have taken all the successful ingredients of the legendary 1994 original and updated the game staying faithful to the genre-defining experience and in-depth content.

In the new Master of Magic players take up the role of one of 14 unique and diverse grand wizards who, locked in vicious competition, aim to dominate the magical worlds of Arcanus and Myrror.

Recruit and lead mighty armies of elves, dragons, dwarves, and orcs and support them in tense tactical turn-based battles with a wizard’s arsenal of powerful magic spells. Choose your school of magic, perform rituals, and excel in the dark arts. Victory goes to those wizards who use their expanding power to dominate the lands and ultimately rule the world. In the end, there can only be one Master of Magic.

Slitherine Next is the spiritual successor of our Home of Wargamers events. It’s happening on December 13th, 4:00 PM GMT, and it’s going to be another moment when we can show you the gameschat with developers, and announce future projects. We want players who are not necessarily wargamers to feel comfortable watching something that’s entirely dedicated to our mainstream strategy products.

In this format, you’ll see a little bit of Nintendo Direct, some Playstation’s State of Play, and a pinch of all other announcements streams you are used to as gamers. Nevertheless, we wanted to keep it absolutely Slitherine. So we’re going live, unfiltered and unabridged. No pre-recorded segments and a lot more interaction with the players. A lot more questions and answers, a lot more celebration of our incredible community. Something that is truly live and somehow less safe and secure.

This is what we want to keep pushing for: an open, frank relationship with our players, and top-notch content that you all want to read, watch, comment on, and play. You just have to save the date and show up: we’ll take care of everything else.


With Master of Magic get ready to play with:

  • 14 unique, playable wizards each special and powerful in their own way.

  • 5 schools of magic and 18 customizable wizard traits.

  • 14 fantasy races to command, from elves, dwarves, trolls, and draconians, to orcs, klackons, gnolls, and many more.

  • Close to 200 unique unit types.

  • Over 60 special abilities and 200 spells to research.

  • Over 250 unique magical items, including custom crafting.

  • Two parallel dimensional planes to conquer: the worlds of Arcanus and Myrror.

Looking for a dose of nostalgia? The classic Master of Magic can now be played as well. Be sure to check out the Steam page and get wizarding!

Master of Magic will be available on PC December 13th, the same day of Slitherine’s Twitch event – Next
