The release of Magicka 2 is today's freshest wizard news, but Magicka: Wizard Wars [official site] exited Early Access and impressed Adam just two weeks ago. It's a multiplayer, free-to-play spin off from the main series and "a smart piece of design". We've got 5000 starter packs to giveaway, including everything you see in the image above.

Free Gift! Magicka: Wizard Wars Rock-Throwing RPS Robe

We like Magicka: Wizard Wars a bit, which is why Jim, Adam and Jim again have all written to profess their love. Yesterday was the game's one-year anniversary, and we've consequently got a special RPS-themed in-game robe to give away. It lets you hurl rocks harder and faster than others, fittingly.

War(Un)Locked: Magicka Wizard Wars Open Beta

I'm wary of posting Magicka Wizard Wars news, particularly when new content is involved, because the temptation to dip in for a couple of games is strong. Experience tells me that 'a couple of games' last around three hours, despite each round of the magical multiplayer murderthon taking less than ten minutes. Here's the thing - there was a time when I was among the…

Giveaway: Another 3000 Magicka Wizard Wars Beta Keys

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…

We Have 3000 Magicka: Wizard Wars Beta Keys To Giveaway

Magicka was a chaotic top-down RPG about calamitous co-operative wizards kersplatting their friends with elemental lasers. Magicka: Wizard Wars hands the development reigns to Paradox North, simplifies the original's cookbook of destructive spells, and switches from co-op singleplayer to multiplayer-only team deathmatch. In doing so, its Early Access alpha has hooked both Adam and Jim. The game is entering open beta on May 27th, which…

Element-Hell: Magicka Wizard Wars Adds Duel Mode

Magicka: Wizard Wars may well be my favourite competitive multiplayer game since the original Unreal Tournament. I was startled when I realised that might be the caese, but the rattle of fingers across keys, weaving deadly magicks, accompanies an enormous chunk of my free time. It's a game that requires quick reflexes and the ability to switch between various forms of attack and defence without…

Tablets And Terrors: Magicka Expands

Most games would be content to play host to a series of Wizard Wars and frantic tactical multiplayer arena combat is almost certainly the focus of Magicka's immediate future, but the wizards at Paradox have a few other tricks up their sleeves, and hidden beneath their robes. First up is the Dungeons and Gargoyles DLC, a continuation of Dungeons & Daemons. There's a trailer for…

Magicka: Wizard Wars Is Available Via Early Access

UPDATE: I am having trouble connecting to games, seems it might be over-subscribed. And I am going to jump right in, so expect some thoughts on it soon. I've been itching to get my hands on Magicka: Wizard Wars - Paradox's pared down team combat version of Magicka - since I saw it in action at GDC earlier in the year, and I believe it…

Hell’s Spells: Magicka – Wizard Wars Alpha Signups

I killed all of my friends when playing Magicka. Sometimes I even did it on purpose. Fingers dancing across keys to program arcane combinations into a staff, which then unleashes...something. Maybe a flaming boulder that is determined to explode, perhaps a jet of steam that sears the skin off any sorcerers in its path. If Magicka were a fighting game, slipping up slightly mid-combo would…

Something Magical: Magicka: Wizard Wars

I saw Magicka: Wizard Wars while I was at GDC, and it was the highlight of my week. Magicka was a fascinating oddity out of left-field, and enormously entertaining, but on seeing Wizard Wars I immediately sensed that the idea could find its mature, developed form in multiplayer. Anyway, it's taken a little while for assets to surface, and now they have I wanted to…

After DC DOTA, A Magicka MOBA: Wizard Wars

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.…
