Magicka’s PVP Mode Is Now Live

Sometimes wizards don’t get along. That’s the idea that Paradox Interactive was going with when they created the new Player-Versus-Player (PVP) mode for their popular title, Magicka. Now, you can finally retaliate against those wicked mages who think making your head explode is fun for all.

Players will be able to unleash their fury in the Havindir Arena and Training Ground maps, and there will be a special Resevoir wizard robe available for download as free content along with the new PVP mode.The new mode will offer three new types of gameplay for all players. Here’s a quick look at each of them:


  • 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.
  • Krietor mode: A fiendish new mode named after a clever Magicka fan who modded the game, the round-based Krietor mode unlocks Magicks at special intervals during the match, forcing players to come up with different strategies as new spells become available.

Below you can see the new PVP trailer for Magicka, which shows Vlad, who isn’t a vampire mind you, sending the wizards on a special mission. Magicka is available via Steam for just $9.99, and you can pick up a copy here. For more information on the game, you can head to its official website. Now get out there and get to destroying some wizards!
