The Magic: The Gathering panel at San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend revealed quite a bit about our upcoming products. One exciting bit of news was the official announcement of the latest release for our Magic: The Gathering—Commander series with this year's Magic: The Gathering—Commander (2014 Edition).

For the first time ever, you can lead your forces with a Planeswalker commander in this exciting multiplayer Magic format. Dominate the battlefield with new combinations of strength and skill.
