Magicka PvP in Two Weeks

Share |

Paradox Interactive today announced that the anticipated Player vs. Player mode for "Magicka" will launch on June 21 at no charge.

"At PvP launch, players will be able to wreak havoc in the Havindir Arena and Training Ground maps, and a new Reservoir wizard robe will be available (if you’re stuck being Pink, just remember that you know where the diamonds are).

Available for sale at PvP launch will be the all-new Final Frontier Map Pack, which will include the Vulcanus Arena for both Challenge and PvP modes (nerve pinch not included). As if that wasn’t enough, a chilling Frozen Lake map and a “stop staring at me, you’re freaking me out” Watch Tower map will also be available. Players will also be able to don new robes suited for the new PvP game modes- a tank robe, a support robe and rogue robe.

Magicka’s PvP will come in three different flavors:

  • Classic Deathmatch: Instead of accidentally zapping your companions, you kill them on purpose! It’s every wizard for himself as up to four physically inept beings duke it out in a one mage takes all battle.
  • Brawl mode: In Brawl, each player/team only has a set number of lives, and the last ma…wizard standing wins. Just make sure your “friends” don’t squander those precious lives.
  • Kreitor mode: A fiendish new mode named after a clever Magicka fan who modded the game, the round based Kreitor mode unlocks Magicks at special intervals during the match, forcing players to come up with new strategies as new spells become available."
