Magicka: Wizard Wars Leaves Steam Early Access on April 28th
Paradox Interactive has announced that Magicka: Wizard Wars will be officially released on April 28th. Magicka: Wizard Wars is a Spellcasting Action PvP game with the humor and the dynamic realtime spell system of Magicka. Players form teams of four and blaze their way across the battlefield, combining magical elements on the fly to create hundreds of spell combinations with wildly varying effects. Magicka: Wizard Wars will eventually be FREE to play.
Each player can personalize their wizard with unique gear and Magicks, complete with tongue-in-cheek references to popular media and current events.
With friendly fire, short rounds and unpredictable strategies, Wizard Wars gives both novice players and experienced MOBA veterans a unique tactical depth in every encounter.
The time is now to get up, gear up and go to war!
2 Game modes, 4-on-4 teamplay and the new 1-on-1 Duel game mode
Fight intense battles – Co-op spellcasting, wielding fire and dragons as your weapons.
Show your skills in fast-paced action, dynamically choose your spells on the fly to counter your opponents’ attacks.
Friendly fire is in full effect, staying true to the Magicka tradition of “accidentally” killing your friends.
100 Robes, Staves, Skins, Weapons and your Humor of choice, 100s more to come – Be the Wizard you want to be!
As of Tuesday, April 14, Magicka: Wizard Wars will include:
- Transgress to Progress: An all-new progression system has been added to the game, allowing players to earn tokens at each level earned, redeemable on the new Masteries Screen for new Magicks, items, and more in a much more customizable fashion. Fashions can also be mastered if Wizards are stylish enough.
- Try Before You Die: New Magick Scrolls allow players to sample powerful Magicks before unlocking them, including all-new Magicks like the Frost Bomb and Stasis spells. Decide ahead of time if a brutal sub-zero death is really right for you!
