In Magicka: Wizard Wars, two teams of four wizards each will cast, blast, and get sassed by one another in pitched battles, utilizing the celebrated dynamic real-time spellcasting system of Magicka, along with some new tricks. In true Magicka fashion, friendly fire is in full effect, and hundreds of spell combinations are possible, with victory going to the wizards who can think and act the fastest – and stay out of the line of fire. With short battles, skill-based spell-offs, and a set of marvelous robes, Magicka: Wizard Wars aims to provide multiplayer aficionados with a new option for PvP mayhem.
