I just think you're so full of magic, you're like a big round wizard.

The Paradox Interactive Convention continues in Miami, and along with the announcement of new game Runemaster, they have also announced a new addition to the upcoming multiplayer wizard-em-up Magicka: Wizard Wars. Along with the core game’s blend of accidental team-killing and MOBA tactics, the newly announced Duel mode will allow players to fight one-on-one – eliminating the need to pray your teammates aren’t going to idiotically lob a water bomb at you just as you charge up an electrical blast.
In Duel Mode, four players enter a small arena and two wizards are chosen at random. Those two wizards then fight it out while the others watch on – and once one of the combatants drops, one of the spectators enters the fray. The four players cycle until one wizard has six kills, at which point they will be named the champion. You can watch the new Duel Mode in action in the new trailer embedded below – it looks pretty intense. Duel Mode will be added to Wizard Wars in the near future, so if you’re interested you can grab the game for $12.99 through Steam Early Access.
