1.11.01.00 Game Update
This Thursday will mark exactly three weeks until the release of Zendikar Rising, which is usually when the beginning of the set preview season coincides. MTG Arena will be undergoing scheduled maintenance to deploy the 1.11.01.00 game update and if it is consistent with the previous patch numbers, we should see the preorders for Zendikar Rising become available. This means that we may see the two main Planeswalker cards that are included in the bundles (unless things are changed up for Zendikar Rising)…
The teaser video for Zendikar Rising, with the voice possibly depicting Nahiri has just been launched and we may see the expansion officially debut on September 1, 8 AM PT at twitch.tv/magic. As stated before, we may see things before this date because of the potential preorder patch but Mark Rosewater in his article today asks us to “Join me next week for the start of Zendikar Rising previews.”, so we will have to find out how things are rolled out from here.
