Paradox Interactive has released details about Magicka: Wizard Wars, their latest player-versus-player (PvP) multiplayer videogame based on the celebrated sorcery franchise. Magicka: Wizard Wars, a team-based, fast-paced, two-faced, post-haste, four-on-four twitch action title, mixes Magicka’s hallmark dynamic spellcasting and absurd pop-culture humor with new hardcore game mechanics and a focus on competitive play.
Magicka: Wizard Wars will be the first title developed by Paradox North, a new studio within Paradox Interactive comprised of industry veterans with extensive experience in game creation and wizard staff repair. In Magicka: Wizard Wars, two teams of four wizards each will go head-to-lightning-bolt on the field of battle, wielding a wealth of magic spells as players adapt their tactics on the fly in response to their opponents. In true Magicka fashion, victory will go to the team whose wizards can combine the craftiest casts, and who can avoid the most friendly fire.
The debut trailer for Magicka: Wizard Wars follows below. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details about Magicka: Wizard Wars and future releases from Paradox Interactive.
