'Magicka' (ALL) Patches In The Works, Free DLC Adds Items

Magicka is an action/adventure in which the player takes on the role of a wizard of a decadent ancient order, utilizing a complex game mechanic to let players, in real-time, dynamically combine different elements to create spells or the even more powerful Magicks to exploit the weaknesses of their foes.

Magicka is an action/adventure game currently under development by Arrowhead Game Studios. The concept of Magicka first came to life in 2008 as a submission to the Swedish Game Awards, Sweden's largest game development competition. The game was first visualized in 2D but has since been remade in 3D and uses much more advanced technology.

In Magicka, the player takes on the role of a wizard of a decadent ancient order, utilizing a complex game mechanic to let players, in real-time, dynamically combine different elements to create spells or the even more powerful Magicks to exploit the weaknesses of their foes. The game will feature 15 different levels in 9 different environments, giving the players a huge replayability with unlockable magicks, weapons and challenge levels not found the first time around.

All game modes will be available with up to 4 player co-op.

The development team are stuck in their cave working on patches to fix the current online issues, adding content and implementing player requests like keyboard mapping and more. For those having trouble with the online co-op, the multi-player is running smoothly over LAN and local co-op.

Those who purchase Magicka before January 31st will also receive the Wizard Survival Kit as a bonus, which includes three items; a Wizard's Hat, a Sharp Sword, and a Staff +1, as well as a new magick called Meteor Shower.

Key Features:

  • Innovative and dynamic spellcasting system with over a million possible combinations 
  • Up to four-player co-op in all game modes, as well as a single-player option 
  • Fight your way through 13 different levels in the campaign 
  • Explore an expansive realm of adventure to defeat the evilest of wizards 
  • Experience the parody and satire of a clich├ęd fantasy world
