Paradox has unleashed the first gameplay footage for Magicka: Wizard Wars, the dedicated "peer-immolating" PvP action title in the Magicka series. Two groups of Wizards square off in the clip.
If you find this kind of thing 'tickles your wand' then alpha sign ups have begun for you to put those tingly feelings to good(?) use. It has all the chaos of Magick's dynamic stream-crossing magic.
The trailer is initially pre-rendered but kicks in with actual in-game footage soon enough. Alpha registration for Magicka: Wizard Wars are available.
As more competing wizards sign up to the alpha rewards are unlocked with 'stage 3' actually giving away free copies of the base Magicka game via Steam. The first reward is a Vendetta Dagger, followed by an Excelsior Line Staff. Signing up "does not give instant access" to the closed alpha, but puts you in queue.
