The digital version of the popular card game Magic: The Gathering, MTG Arena, is finally launching its mobile app on March 25 across the world.
MTG Arena on mobile devices expands today, adding support for tablets and iOS devices. It also includes performance updates for Android devices as well. Players will also get access to the Viking-themed Kaldheim deck, which is available from digital today. The game is free to download, but you can spend money on purchasing cards.

The Arena is a genuine version of the original card game and includes all the complexity and combinations that make the gameplay so deep and elaborate. The card sets in this digital version of the game keep pace with the release of physical sets of cards.
Here’s what the developer recommends:
- Android Version: 6.0 (Marshmallow) or newer
- RAM: 4GB or more
- Graphics API: OpenGL ES 3.0
- Texture Compression: ETC2
MTG Arena game: Required Chipsets
- Kirin 970 -or-
- Snapdragon 845 -or-
- Exynos 9810
Players who have built up an MTG Arena card collection on the PC version needn’t worry – they can sign into the mobile version and use their same cards and decks. Conversely, players just getting started in the mobile app can carry their collection over to the desktop game.
During the pandemic, Arena has become an invaluable way to keep local communities of players together and has become the official digital home of Friday Night Magic tournaments.
According to developers, they’re already working on a long-term fix, but in the meantime, they offered a workaround: 1. Instead of exiting the game, log out completely and log back in; 2. Open the social menu and toggle between offline and online.
