Today is the day that Mythic Odysseys of Theros is released. This setting is the newest in the D&D and Magic: The Gathering cross-over settings.
“Legends walk the lands of Theros, a realm shaped by deities and the deeds of heroes. From the temples of omen-speaking oracles to the five realms of the Underworld, the champions of the gods vie for immortal favor and a place among the world’s living myths.
Choose a supernatural gift that sets you on the path of destiny, align yourself with one of Theros’s fifteen gods, then carve a tale of odysseys and ordeals across the domains of mortals, gods, and the dead.
What legends will you challenge—mighty heroes, inevitable prophecies, or titans imprisoned by the gods? Where will destiny and immortal schemes lead you? And what tales will you leave behind, celebrated in the pantheon of myths and writ among the eternal stars?”
-Official WoTC Product Listing

Other new options will be present including Supernatural Gifts and Mythic Monsters.
Alongside the official release will be support on day 1 from the DMs Guild. The first product that we have been alerted to is named Masks of Theros and below is an explanation of what this amazing adventure path will offer.
“In ages long past, when mortals prayed the gods to life, Erebos the Shadow had two lovers. Ainoe was the goddess of the doom that awaits all empires, the end of magic, and the grind of time. Elpis was the god of repose at the end of grueling journeys, the spark from which magic blooms, and wayward souls coming home. When Ainoe and Elpis fell in the war against the Titans, grieving Erebos shaped their visages into memorial masks.
Now the warlady Calisto has the Ainoe Mask, and seeks the shattered pieces of the Elpis Mask. With the power of two gods’ death masks, she will conquer Theros – unless a group of heroes prove mighty enough to oppose her.
Masks of Theros is an adventure path that takes characters from 1st to 11th level, and across the plane of Theros from the polis of Meletis to the Underworld, via minotaur wargames, a drowned city on the back of a kraken, and the machinations of the god of time.
Developed by Cat Evans and Steffie de Vaan. Writing by Oliver Clegg, Beatriz T. Dias, Christian Eichhorn, Cat Evans and Steffie de Vaan. Original art by Liz Gist.
