The Magicka: Wizard Wars open beta seems to be going well, with the free-to-play game being downloaded more than 500,000 times.
“If we could personally shake hands with each player and give them our thanks, we would, but there’s too many; it’d probably mean a hiatus from actually working on the game,” said John Hargelid, Studio Manager for Paradox North. “We’re delighted that everybody likes the game so far, but this is just the beginning for Magicka: Wizard Wars. We’ve quadrupled server capacity since last week and we’re adding more servers, ironing the creases out of the robes, making sure the Wizard entrails are the right consistency – everything it takes to make sure the game stays a strong entry in the legacy of Magicka.”
The Open Beta for Magicka: Wizard Wars is free to download and play immediately, where teams of Wizards go head-to-head in intense player-versus-player (PvP) action. Utilizing the celebrated spellcasting system of Magicka, Wizards combine elements to generate on-the-fly spells and secure victory for their team. Players can also hone their skills against one another in the one-on-one duel mode, utilizing all of their tricks in order to be the last robe standing. With short battles, skill-based spellcasting, and plenty of humor, Magicka: Wizard Wars presents a new way to experience the chaos of Magicka with friends and foes alike.
