Wizards of the Coast has announced Garruk’s Revenge, a brand new expansion for Magic 2015 – Duels of the Planeswalkers. The expansion brings additional content to Magic 2015 and puts the fate of Garruk Wildspeaker, the deadliest hunter in the Multiverse, in the player’s hands as he seeks his revenge. Garruk’s Revenge will be available on PC via Steam and Android via Google Play starting November 5th. Additional platforms including Xbox One, Xbox 360, Apple iPad and the Amazon Kindle will be available shortly thereafter.
