Paradox Interactive and Arrowhead Game Studios today announced the PvP game mode for Magicka will go live on June 21.
The download is free, and players will be able to blow each other up in the Havindir Arena and Training Ground maps, as well as don the new Reservoir wizard robe.
Also, at launch of the PvP mode, a new Final Frontier Map Pack will be made available which will include the Vulcanus Arena for both Challenge and PvP modes along with the Frozen Lake map and a “stop staring at me, you’re freaking me out” Watch Tower map as well as a tank robe, a support robe and rogue robe. No word on price for this yet.
Magicka’s PvP will come in three different flavors:
Classic Deathmatch: Instead of accidentally zapping your companions, you kill them on purpose! It’s every wizard for himself as up to four physically inept beings duke it out in a one mage takes all battle.
Brawl mode: In Brawl, each player/team only has a set number of lives, and the last ma…wizard standing wins. Just make sure your “friends” don’t squander those precious lives.
Kreitor mode: A fiendish new mode named after a clever Magicka fan who modded the game, the round based Kreitor mode unlocks Magicks at special intervals during the match, forcing players to come up with new strategies as new spells become available.
