plenty of surprises, Magicka 2 will have players casting and blasting together
on computers and consoles alike.
While you get your robe cleaned and pressed for your next adventure, witness the
announcement in a new trailer:
“Millions of people enjoyed the first Magicka, even after their friends exploded
their heads with an ‘accidental’ fire beam,” said Fredrik Wester, CEO of Paradox
Interactive. “The next chapter of the Magicka saga is going to introduce new
twists on the gameplay and customization options, all presented with beautiful
art and animation on the PC and PS4®. Our players will be able to control their
Wizards the way they like, assuming their fellow spellcasters let them live that
In Magicka 2, Wizards will attempt to survive the next chapter of the Magicka
tale, exploring a Midgård that has been ravaged by the recent Wizard Wars.
Utilizing a new iteration of the dynamic Magicka spellcasting system, players
will don a wide selection of robes and staffs, face new enemy classes, and seek
guidance from Vlad, who is, thankfully, not a vampire.
Magicka 2 features:
- 4 Player Friendly Fire Co-op: Making and losing
friends has never been better with all game modes supporting co-op,
including hot-joining, checkpoints, and more supportive functionality.
- Venture into Adventure: Witness a Midgård mostly
purged of Wizard-kind, save for a few remaining madmen, and encounter hordes
of fantasy creatures great and small.
- Wizard Your Way: Try on your choice of robes,
staffs, and weapons, each with special abilities of their own, to play as
the Wizard of your choice.
- The Art of Artifacts: Discover the new “Artifact”
system of Magicka 2, offering new gameplay changes and options to put new
twists on each level.
