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.

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.

In doing so, its Early Access alpha has hooked both Adam and Jim.

The game is entering open beta on May 27th, which means come the end of the month you’ll be able to play for free without having to first buy one of its microtransactional starter packs. Or, if you’re very nice, you can play now, because we’ve got 3000 beta keys to giveaway down below.
