RPS reader Alex "Truthcake" Turpin sends word that Arrowhead Studios has released a free little bit of DLC for wizardly co-op title Magicka entitled "Mea Culpa", which is nerd for "We're sorry".

Magicka Released Date Confirmed, Eek! Soon!

Release dates are not a natural source of comedy. There's a limited number of jokes you can really get out of such a mundane piece of news. I mean, I even struggled below with the DNF announcement.

PC co-op friendly-fire-athon Magicka is out in Q1 2011, and it's looking tight like a kitten trapped in a coke bottle. How did the kitten get in the coke bottle? Nobody knows.

More Of A Magicka

Arrowhead Games - whoa, a strange "arrowhead" theme - showed off their isometric multiplayer Diablo-like action adventure Magicka at GDC, and so we've snaffled the video to post below.

I think I have a new favourite trailer. For Magicka. Despite the accolades it's already won it hasn't crossed my path before, only announced this week as an official game.
