A tongue-in-cheek live action trailer has been released in typical Magicka style. Paradox North studio is behind the latest entry in the series. Can you handle the "four-on-four twitch action-PvP"?
The battles will likely prove short, what with all that 'accidental' friendly fire, but there'll be "persistent character progression, and plenty of laughter".
"Magicka has always allowed for some unique gameplay and, with Wizard Wars, we’ve really captured the true experience of PvP wizardry,” said John Hargelid of Paradox North.
“When you put the team-focused, hardcore competition of online games together with characters whose attacks are fluid and dynamic – and then give teammates the ability to implode, freeze, and fling each other by accident – it’s really something special to watch, and to play, and to yell at your friends about afterwards.”
Magicka: Wizard Wars releases on PC sometime this winter.
