Magicka Wizard Wars Is Going Live On April 28

Good news, Magicka: Wizard Wars [official site] is finally being led out of the Siberian purgatory of beta and will go live on April 28.

Here’s a friendly refresher for you: Wizard Wars is that free-to-play PvP game announced last year from Paradox Interactive. Coming along with the newly launched game are a couple of new additions, including maps and a new game mode, say its makers in a finely crafted press release. Several new features will be added to the Early Access version of the game over on Steam starting April 14. Paradox is calling this a “sneak peek” of the perils that are coming at the end of the month.

You can take a look at it in action in their new trailer, before naturally reading our hands on experiences with the game:


  1. Eikenberry says:

    I tried playing this a few months back. It had weird server region issues and I could never actually get into a game to play (thousands of people online, no one playing a game in my region). I hope they fixed that. I’m not smart enough for Magicka, but I sure enjoy it.

    • Synesthesia says:

      Same problem. I couldn’t get into a single game, which didn’t bode well. Maybe I’ll try again.

  2. Cronstintein says:

    Right now you either want to use Oceana or US east to get games. Preferably during the 3pm-10pm (localtime) range to avoid waiting much.
    That said, it’s actually a good game. Frenetic as hell and requires both twitch speed and smart decision making. Nothing else quite like it.
