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.

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.

It’s one thing to completely annihilate your friends in glorious magical combat, whether on accident or on purpose, and another thing to completely annihilate your friends in glorioius magical combat FOR FREE. No, wait a moment, on second thought it’s actually the same thrilling annihilation…but at least it’s cheaper!

Paradox Interactive announced that starting today, the untainted masses who have yet to experience death-by-typo in Magicka can try the award-wanting game for free this weekend on Steam.

Coinciding with the free weekend on Steam, Paradox has also announced that Magicka will be on sale until 10am PST on November 21. Mages new to the club can pick up the indie hit and DLC at discounts up to 75% off, leaving you plenty of leftover moolah to buy that Wizards for Dummies book you always wanted.

  • 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
