One-on-one Matches with Rapidly Cycling Opponents Allow Players to Fight Mana-a-Mano
MIAMI – January 24, 2014 — Paradox
Interactive, a publisher of games and a duel citizen, today at the
Paradox Interactive Convention in Miami announced the upcoming
addition of a fast-paced Duel Mode to
Magicka: Wizard Wars, the upcoming multi-player
spell-slinging game from Paradox North. In Duel Mode, four players
will step into an arena with a shortage of personal space, and two
randomly chosen players will begin the battle in a one-on-one
format while the others witness the carnage. When one wizard falls,
a spectator will take their place, with all four players cycling
into the game until one robe warrior has scored six murders –
making them the champion. Duel Mode will be added to
Magicka: Wizard Wars in the very near future.
To see the new Duel Mode in action, set this trailer to Play Mode:
The new Duel Mode update was created in direct response to fan feedback received during the Early Access phase, designed by Paradox North for fans who wanted their conjuring chaos to get a little more personal, with purely skill-based combat uninterrupted by one’s clumsy team-killing friends. Duel Mode also gives new players a new opportunity to learn from expert wizards, watching them in action and studying their moves before their own trial by fire and/or lightning-infused jets of steam.
In Magicka: Wizard Wars, wizards go head-to-head in intense player-versus-player (PvP) action, utilizing the celebrated spellcasting system of Magicka, combining elements to generate spellbinding results while friendly fire remains always on.
A special Magicka: Wizard Wars stream is taking place today at the Paradox Interactive Convention in Miami, along with War of the Vikings. Tune in to our Twitch.TV channel www.twitch.tv/paradoxinteractive today at 5 p.m. EST / 2 p.m. PST.
