Magicka: Wizard Wars public alpha launches today

Magicka: Wizard Wars public alpha launches today

Magicka: Wizard Wars is Paradox North's PvP take on the magic-combining franchise. Originally planned for a 2014 release on PC, the developer has decided to launch the free-to-play game into public alpha via Steam Early Access today.

"Basically, what we wanted to do was lower the skill floor and make it more accessible for new players, and raise the skill ceiling so that there's lots to learn," Nisshagen added. "We reduced the number of total spells available, but we basically made them all useful."

PvP arenas were added free DLC to formalise the wizard-on-wizard violence, and the next game goes even further. Announced today by publisher Paradox, Magicka: Wizard Wars is a purely PvP affair, boasting 4v4 magic man action.
