Players can finally play Magic: The Gathering Arena on mobile, but only on a select number of Android devices. 

With the digital launch of Kaldheim today, MTG Arena became available to download on mobile via the Google Play store. Not all devices will download the app and specific requirements for those Android devices are needed to play it. 

Here are the recommended specs for Android devices:

  • Android Version: 6.0 (Marshmallow)
  • RAM: 4GB
  • Graphics API: OpenGL ES 3.0
  • Texture Compression: ETC2

Players have been waiting for the release of MTG Arena on mobile for over a year since it was first announced in a development roadmap. The Arena App is in “early access,” according to WotC, with a final form arriving at a later date.

WotC released a list of Android devices that support the MTG Arena App, as long as the device specs are met.
