from Magicka: Wizard Wars
, a player-versus-player (PvP)-focused multiplayer game based on their slapstick sorcery franchise. In Magicka: Wizard Wars, two teams of four wizards each will go head-to-lightning-bolt on the field of battle, wielding a wealth of magic spells as players adapt their tactics on the fly in response to their opponents. In true Magicka fashion, victory will go to the team whose wizards can combine the craftiest casts - and who can avoid the most friendly fire.
This game will be the first title developed by Paradox North
, a new studio within Paradox Interactive comprised of industry veterans.
