Magicka: Vietnam Announced

Paradox Interactive announces Magicka: Vietnam (really!), the first expansion from Arrowhead Game Studios for Magicka, the recently released action/adventure game. Here's word on the add-on, which they say will be available "soon" via digital distribution: "Have you ever wondered what it would have been like if wizards were allowed to roam the jungles of war-torn Vietnam, attempting to bring peace and stability to the region by casting spells on all opponents? Wait, you havenít ever wondered that? Ever? Okay, so weíre probably the only ones who have but in our defense: hereís your chance to stop being so closed-minded. Magicka: Vietnam delivers over-the-top action as players take on the role of four meek and physically inept wizards as they try to do what so many 80ís action stars have done in the past: blow stuff up." This trailer is online showing combat in the jungles of Vietnam, along with familiar tropes like a Huey run to the strains of a Surfin' Bird parody and a napalm strike (which we assume will be survived by Charlie Sheen).

Hey, this looks amusing and fun, but FIX YOUR GAME ALREADY. Multiplayer is still plagued by people falling through the world in certain situations that have been posted to death on the Arrowhead forums, and still it hasn't been fixed.

Just tried a multiplayer arena game of v1.3.5.2 last night, we got to round 11 in The Glade before everybody's framerate dropped to about 5, and people fell through the map and died. Instant rage quits for most followed. There were no more monsters on the screen at that point than any other round, so no obvious clue as to the cause either.
