Share |

Paradox Interactive today announced the release of a large tech overhaul for the game engine in the Magicka series. A trailer for the upcoming The Stars are Left expansion was released along with this announcement.

"Full details for what is featured in the game engine update:

  • Fairy familiar added, revives characters after death occurs in solo campaign
  • Checkpoints now save progress even if game is quit
  • Chapter select added to replay previously played chapters
  • Several improvements to the server browser
  • Physics and collision detection improved – less falling through the floor
  • Frame rate stuttering – should be less noticeable for some users
  • Extended particle system with particle lights
  • Improved light performance
  • Several minor bug fixes, game balance, and tweaks

The Great Old Ones also unveiled a gameplay trailer that was available before the existence of man. However, since the Great Old Ones only had dial-up internet access until just a few days ago (old habits die hard), they’re finally able to share it with all of mankind who have since started to exist; the trailer is sure to excite players who are Thurston for more Magicka action—bah-dum-ching!"
