Moments ago, Warner announced the existence of a DC Comics MOBA called Infinite Crisis and Paradox have now announced the existence of a Magicka MOBA called Wizard Wars. Unfortunately, I haven’t managed to learn everything there is to know about the genre in between those announcements so I’m just going to copy some words from the press release and pop the live action trailer below.
In Magicka: Wizard Wars, two teams of four wizards each will go head-to-lightning-bolt on the field of battle, wielding a wealth of magic spells as players adapt their tactics on the fly in response to their opponents. In true Magicka fashion, victory will go to the team whose wizards can combine the craftiest casts – and who can avoid the most friendly fire.
Element combinations are still the basis of spells, which means comically misplaced explosions should be par for the course.
‘Generic Monarch’ provided my first proper smile of the day and then I realised how late in the day it was and became grumpy again.
Paradox aren’t just the publishers for Wizard Wars – it’s under development at Paradox North, a new internal studio.
