It’s a good day for accessing things early I guess, as Paradox Interactive today announced that Magicka: Wizard Wars was available through Steam Early Access. Wizard Wars will be free to play when it launches, but if you’d like to check out Paradox North’s ridiculous multiplayer game right now, you can pay between $12.99 and $49.99 to get immediate access, plus a host of costumes, weapons and other perks.

Except, as you will see if you click on that link, in Australia. While those who reside in other countries can right now buy the game from Steam, the best we can do down under is sign up for the alpha and hope we get in. Confused, sad and a little hungry, I asked Paradox what the deal was. They explained that Magicka: Wizard Wars won’t be available in Australia until they can get Australian servers up and running – early next year.

In the meantime, it looks like crossing your fingers and hoping you get into the alpha is the best option available. You can also watch Wizard Wars’ latest trailer embedded below, if you are not yet disappointed enough.

Sad it’s delayed for us, but yay for local servers.
