Paradox have announced that Magicka is set to receive a new, PVP-specific installment by the name of Magicka: Wizard Wars. Paradox North, a new studio within Paradox “comprised of industry veterans with extensive experience in game creation and wizard staff repair” are behind the development.

Two teams of four wizards will battle it out in the game, with everything you know and love about Magicka still in place, including friendly fire. “With short battles, persistent character progression, and plenty of laughter, Magicka: Wizard Wars is perfect for a few quick games to unwind after work – or a forty-hour binge over the weekend,” reads the official announcement. “Paradox promises not to judge.”

Wait, Magicka isn’t already a pvp game? Whoops….

 

Hahaha Game of Thrones reference in the vid. Nice!

 

Well that sounds like way less fun than thunderbolting someone while they’re being attacked by goblins.

Also FIX THE GOD DAMN BUGS before making more content, for the 500th time. Haven’t played this once without games desyncing, mobs disappearing, NPCs disappearing, losing control of the character, being ‘Defeated’ while still alive, all kinds of amazingly sloppy work. Enormous fun, but the state of the game is a pretty poor reflection on the devs.
