Magicka: Wizard Wars conjures first gameplay trailer
This first gameplay trailer for Magicka: Wizard Wars, which lasts just over a minute, begins with battle between two wizards that vaguely reminds us of the final battle between Voldemort and Harry Potter.
The mage clash then comes to a standstill when the heavens darken and blood-red meteors start raining down like a shower of doom.
The cinematic trailer then transitions into the actual gameplay trailer, showing the wizards evading the meteor rain and then adventuring through what appears to be the farmland starter zone.
Magicka developer Paradox Interactive said the trailer features the very first publicly released in-game footage of Magicka: Wizard Wars. It also described the video as featuring the
"forthcoming wizard-dueling, element-combining, peer-immolating action PvP title in motion, and see what it looks like when two groups of wizards stop playing nice and actually try to obliterate each other."
Paradox Interactive also invited players to sign up for the still-to-be-dated Alpha, which will let testers experience the mmorpg action where two teams of four wizards will face off against each other in spell-casting clashes.
