Giveaway: Another 3000 Magicka Wizard Wars Beta Keys

By Graham Smith on May 19th, 2014 at 3:00 pm.

The last time we gave away Magicka: Wizard Wars beta keys, they vanished in an instant. There were tears, there was tearing of shirts, there was pounding of chests. Wail no longer: we’ve got three thousand more, which means you’ve a second brief window of opportunity if you want to get in on the rowdy wizarding multiplayer. Jim liked it. Adam liked it. Maybe you’ll like it too.

The game is entering open beta on May 27th, but this key gets you into the game immediately without having to first buy one of its microtransactional starter packs. All you need to do is enter your email address in the field below. It’s first-come, first-served and the key is distributed via godankey.com. They won’t use your email address for anything other than dispensing the key.

It’s a Steam key, but if you’re not familiar with the process of redeeming those:

1: Go to: http://store.steampowered.com/
2. Click Register to create an account, or login if you already have an existing account
3. Start Steam client (download the Steam client if you did not have an existing account)
4: Click “Games” in the main menu
5: Select “Activate a product on steam” and enter code. The game is now added.

Then all you need to do is wait for the download to finish and you’re away. The original Magicka games were single and co-op RPGs with a heavy dose of QWOP-like slapstick in their elemental cookbook; i.e. you were as likely to toss a burning boulder in the back of your buddy as you were one of its fantasy monsters. Magicka: Wizard Wars abandons the singleplayer story in favour of straight-up team deathmatch and duelling modes, while simplifying the spell system from millions of combinations to a mere 40,000. It’s the same recipe for manic fun, though. Here’s the latest trailer:

    I got lost at step 5. There doesn’t seem to be an option to select to “activate a product on Steam” When I click games it doesn’t take me to a new page just gives me a bunch of game genres…

      It’s based on IP. If you’re on a network try changing it, or go to your local overpriced coffee shop and use their wifi!

    What, a beta key signup where I actually get a beta key?! Unpossible. But there it is, in my inbox.

    So many thanks, RPS.

  9. Ditocoaf says:

    What, I check RPS for the first time of the day and all the keys are gone? I am so sad.

    Why does the UK have to be all the way over there? Can’t you guys relocate britain and the northern bit of ireland to somewhere a bit closer to my time zone? You could probably fit into the Great Lakes if you smooshed some landmasses around a bit.

    Had a fun time with this about a week ago.

    It was funny, our team was winning, we had about 40 respawns left, they had 0.
    But there was one guy on the team who was brilliant. We couldnt kill him. 4 of us running after him, throwing all the spells we could, but be blocked and dodged, healed and eventually wittled all 4 of us down.
    Over and over, till we had about 5 respawns left.

    He was like a raid boss, unto himself.
    I respawned at one point, raced back to the fight just to see he was already fallen.

    They had slain the giant without me.
    Fun!

    I instinctively saw the box & typed in my email address before even considering whether or not I’d be likely to play this. I’m not, so here’s my key:
