Wizards Magic2015of the Coast has posted some information about the upcoming Magic: The Gathering 2015 Core Set.

Hunt Bigger Game.

The set will be released on July 18, 2014, with pre-release events happening July 12-13, 2014. There will be 269 new cards, and the 3 letter code will (obviously) be M15.

Another interesting tidbit is how the card will be released. You can get cards in Booster Packs, Intro Decks, Fat Packs, and Clash Packs. No word yet on exactly what a Clash Pack is.

Last, but not least, there’s been number of changes made to the layout of a Magic card.

  1. A new, proprietary font will be used. The new font, Beleren, has been designed so it doesn’t clash with the font of older cards.
  2. A holofoil stamp will now be applied on all rares and mythic rares.
  3. Collectors info will now be placed on the card. Collector number (122/269), rarity (R), set (M15), and language (EN)
  4. The black border has been decreased by 1mm all around. This allows all the new information to fit on the card, as well as larger art and text boxes.
  5. The cards will now display credit for the designer.

Here’s an example card showing the new changes.
