Magicka: Wizard Wars launch trailer shows off silly PvP action

Magicka: Wizard Wars is a free-to-play spin-off of Arrowhead’s ridiculous shooter, and you can play it right now.

Developed by Paradox North, Magicka: Wizard Wars has three game modes – 1v1 duels, 4v4 team battles, and Soul Harvest, which incorporates base defence and NPC battles. I’m assuming that last one is a kind of MOBA-lite, from the description, but may be wrong.

The core conceits of Magicka remains intact – friendly fire is very definitely on, and huge spell variety gives every battle the potential to devolve into a chaotic mess.

The trailer below gives only a taste of this carnage. You can join the fun on Steam or via the Wizard Wars website.
