Magicka: Wizard Wars enters open beta

Posted on May 28, 2014 AT 04:47am

Paradox Interactive has opened the doors to its free-to-play spell-slinging PvP game Magicka: Wizard Wars.

The game was originally available in beta form via Steam Early Access, but now the developer is letting more players jump in with an open beta. Wizard Wars takes the key elements of Magicka and modifies them to fit a two to eight player PvP setting.

Anyone can now download the game for free via Steam Early Access, but Starter Packs are available for those who wish to throw a little money Paradox’s way. The packs range from $14.99 to $49.99 and include new robes, weapons, and bonus in-game currency.

To celebrate the start of open beta, the developer has added a new 4vs4 map set in Galdrhöll Halls, a new spell that can raise the dead, and new ways to customize your wizard.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
