Magicka: The Stars are Left Announced

Paradox Interactive announces The Stars are Left, the next DLC pack for Magicka, the action/adventure game from Arrowhead Game Studios. While it sounds like it's about Hollywood liberal bias, this DLC actually offers content based on the Cthulhu mythos along with a Minecraft spoof, and more. We have some screenshots, a launch trailer, and here's word:

NEW YORK — October 27, 2011 — Paradox Interactive and Arrowhead Studios have exciting news for Magicka fans, straight from the Inn’s Mouth: Everybody’s favorite magical multiplayer massacre is taking on an all-new adventure in Magicka: The Stars are Left. Designed for players who love to craft the hundreds of different spells available in Magicka, this new campaign will pit up to four wizards at once against a horror-mystery inspired by the popular Cthulhu Mythos. The Stars are Left will boast a much requested feature from the players – a new adventure campaign, including several terrifying new enemies, bosses awakened from the depths of insanity, and several other miscellaneous Miskatonic minions. Other spoofs ending in “-craft” may or may not also be included.

In an act described by industry colleagues as “more insane than a black goat with a thousand young,” Magicka: The Stars are Left will be available not only to players who purchase the expansion, but to all of their friends, as well. So long as the host player in a co-op group owns the content, every one of their co-wizards will be able to co-experience the mind-killing terror of the new expansion.

The Stars are Left includes:

• An all-new adventure, several levels long, allowing players to get lost in space and time
• 2 new challenge maps
• 2 new robes
• 2 new bosses
• 5 new achievements
• 7 new enemies
• Considerably more than 2 new items and Magicks
• Also, we make fun of Minecraft this time

Totally loved the goofy, pop culture reference-laden dialog in Magicka, and the mechanics were really cool too. I still have to catch up with 'Vietnam', because wizards with M-60's is just awesome.
