The Magicka Website
has word that the promised
free PvP update is now available for all owners of Magicka
, the action/RPG from Arrowhead games. The Magicka PVP Trailer
doesn't actually explain or show off PvP play, but does pay homage to some classic dialog from Reservoir Dogs (no, not the Madonna bit, the other one). This announcement
, on the other hand, does provide further detail, saying "Players will be able to wreak havoc in the Havindir Arena and Training Ground maps, and a new Reservoir wizard robe will be available as new free content." It also outlines three different PvP gameplay modes, and announces the content of an accompanying Final Frontier Map Pack, which will set you back almost a buck:
Available for sale will be the all-new Final Frontier Map Pack, priced at .99, which include the never-before-seen Vulcanus Arena, a sci-fi themed map that doubles as a PvP map and a challenge map. Also available for purchase is the chilling Frozen Lake map as well as a “stop staring at me, you’re freaking me out” Watch Tower map, both priced at .99. As always players will be able to play the maps even if they didn’t purchase them – as long as the player hosting the map owns the map. Players will be able to don new robes suited for the new PvP game modes – a tank robe, a support robe and rogue robe.
