Thousands of fans and players are at the RAI in Amsterdam for an incredible weekend full of Magic, with something new for everyone. Featuring Pro Tour Modern Horizons 3, a variety of on-demand and ticketed play events, events and panels on the mana stage, immersive experiences, exclusive merch, fan-favourite artists, cosplayers, Magic celebrities and so much more!

Fans gathered today at a special preview panel revealing more information for upcoming titles including first looks for Duskmourn: House of Horror, the world premiere announcement of Foundations, and an update on Bloomburrow.

All the latest announcements and details from today’s panel are below:

DUSKMOURN: HOUSE OF HORROR

Experience the thrill of overcoming impossible odds and uncover chilling secrets in Magic’s first contemporary horror set. “Who will survive, and what will be left of them?” That’s a question both Magic fans and our story protagonists will be asking themselves. Duskmourn: House of Horror takes place on a new plane, Duskmourn, inspired by the genre of modern horror from the 1980s up through the present day. But there’s a twist! Duskmourn isn’t just any plane, it’s an infinite haunted house populated by horrors, nightmares, and other terrifying entities.

And just like with any good piece of horror media, we have one more surprise for you! In Duskmourn: House of Horror, the Commander decks have something returning that has been requested for years: Archenemy! This optional game mode pits three players against one. But don’t worry if you’re the one flying solo—you’ll have a special set of twisted schemes at your disposal.

Duskmourn: House of Horror will be available for pre-order June 28 and launches September 27, 2024.

JAPAN SHOWCASE

Starting with Duskmourn: House of Horror, we are excited to announce a brand-new part of Booster Fun, Japan Showcase cards. Japan Showcase cards will feature card art from Japanese artists and illustrators, an homage to globally beloved and renowned art styles commonly found in Japanese hobby stores.

WORLD PREMIERE ANNOUNCEMENT OF FOUNDATIONS

Whether you’re taking your first steps into Magic, working on your Standard decks, or diving deep into Modern, Commander, and more—Magic: The Gathering Foundations is for you. Your favourite Legends and Planeswalkers are here with quintessential magic from across the Multiverse. This set was made for past, present, and future Magic players with cards legal in Standard for years, through at least 2029.

Foundations is built as the ideal set for everyone – welcoming new players into Magic: The Gathering while maintaining an engaging experience for long-time fans. Foundations will also fully empower new players with both knowledge and cards relevant to the fun, charm, and approachability of Magic: The Gathering.

Foundations will release on November 15, 2024; look for more information this fall.

UPDATE ON BLOOMBURROW

Magic fans received an update on Bloomburrow, a cute and cosy new world that doesn’t include humans at all, and instead includes a bold adventuring party of anthropomorphic animal friends—like squirrels, frogs, rats, and rabbits—that will need to band together on an important quest. Bravery comes in all sizes! Put your best paw forward and enter the world of Bloomburrow. When elemental forces rage out of control, the salvation of the Valley falls on the shoulders of its smallest protectors. Fight beside mice, frogs, bats, birds, lizards, squirrels, and other critters as you restore the balance of peace.

Bloomburrow will release on August 2, 2024 and is available for pre-order now from online retailers like Amazon, your local game store, and wherever Magic products are sold.
