Magicka: Wizard Wars launches in open beta on May 27
Magicka: Wizard Wars, Paradox Interactive's spellcasting-focused competitive online game, will launch in open beta on May 27
In the game, players group into two teams of up to four wizards and head into player-versus-player combat using only a bank of magic spells. These spells follow a system retooled from Wizard Wars' predecessor, 2011 PC action-adventure title Magicka, in which players can use various different types of magic as well as combine elements to create more powerful spells. Wizard Wars also includes a one-on-one duel mode in which players can engage in short battles to hone their casting skills.
Magicka: Wizard Wars is currently available via Steam Early Access and will be free-to-play when it launches in open beta.
