Whether it is stone, ice, nature or arcane: You need to combine all eight different elements in this free-to-play online game to not only impress your peers, but also win matches. Just don't get your friends in your crosshairs, as that could end badly...
Paradox Interactive calls powerful wizards from all over the world to take part in a battle of epic proportions. Are you ready to take on other robed heroes in player-versus-player combat and combine different elements to come up with the most powerful spell? Then join the wondrous world of Magicka Wizard Wars today! The online battle arena (otherwise known as MOBA) is the first addition to the Magicka franchise and this time, it’s free-to-play and features more than just co-op battles.
Here, you can join forces with strangers and friends alike to take down the opposing team in style. The same rules apply as in Magicka proper: Use a combination of all the different schools of magic to either buff up yourself, save others from harm or defeat enemy targets. Here, you also need to capture control points to bring home the victory.
Combining different elements sounds pretty easy in theory: Just press a couple of buttons and unleash your power on the target of your choice. But not thinking your strategy through is one of the most fatal mistakes one could make in Magicka: Wizard Wars, quite literally. If you mix the wrong elements, you could end up healing your foes or blowing up allied team members. That’s right, this free-to-play title has friendly fire as one of its core features, meaning that you can harm anyone around you - including your friends. The Magicka spellcasting system takes some getting used to, but once you got the hang of how the different elements synergize, there’s no stopping you.
Apart from the usual death rays, healing mines and ice walls that are so typical of Magicka, this new installment of the fantasy series also offers new spells, special abilities and items that you need to figure out as soon as possible. Knowing how to summon an undead minion to help you out in 4vs4 or 1vs1 battles can mean the difference between winning and losing. Keep in mind that you can now also customize your wizard from head to toe to further set yourself apart from the competition.
