Wizard Wars preorders begin. The madness of free-to-play Magicka draws near

Wizard Wars Paradox North

I had a ruddy great time with Wizard Wars. It’s team game take on Magicka’s versus mode is one of the most batshit brilliant versus games I’ve played. News that its preorders have begun, then, is good news.

(Let’s not question the whole preordering a free-to-play game thing.)

I’d suggest simply signing up for free but if you’d like to spend money on a game you’ve not yet played then Paradox are providing the ways and means to do so.
