Magicka Wizard Wars

Postby DjchunKfunK » Mon Mar 25, 2013 6:24 pm

Paradox's turn to announce a MOBA, this one utilising the Magicka IP. However it is not under development by the studio who worked on the original Magicka. Instead it is being developed by an internal studio within paradox called North.

In Magicka: Wizard Wars, two teams of four wizards each will go head-to-lightning-bolt on the field of battle, wielding a wealth of magic spells as players adapt their tactics on the fly in response to their opponents. In true Magicka fashion, victory will go to the team whose wizards can combine the craftiest casts – and who can avoid the most friendly fire.




It would certainly be interesting if they could marry the combat system of the original Magicka with the MOBA formula., something they claim to be trying to do. However without Arrowhead on development duties, it may not be able to capture the charm of the series.

The original was good on the first play through with friends but for me after that wasn't interested in replaying it. Certainly didn't go near the PVP side which I had zero interest in. Was the PVP side that much more played then?
