Magicka 2 Release Date Confirmed in Hilarious Game of Thrones Intro Parody

Forget Game of Thrones. The time has come for a Game of Robes, a.k.a. Magicka 2!

Magicka 2‘s date with PC and PlayStation 4 has been revealed today in a magickal, musical number by Vlad the not-a-vampire manpire. His not-so-in-tune voice delivers the news that the game of cooperative spellcasting chaos will crackle forth from Paradox Interactive’s +1 Staff of Video Game Publishing on May 26th.



Pre-orders are available now for the PC version and will be launching soon for the PS4 version. Magicka 2 is available in two options: a $14.99 standard edition, and a $24.99 deluxe edition. Pre-ordering either edition comes with an in-game Headmaster robe, staff, and sword set as well as access to an early “sneak peek” play session (for the customer plus three fiend invites) set to go down on May 5th.

In addition, the pricier deluxe edition includes the Warlord and Cultist robe sets, the orchestral soundtrack, and either a digital interactive map of Midgård (PC) or a PSN Theme (PS4).

If you feel so inclined, go get your pre-order on at The robe sets even unlock for cross-game use in Magicka: Wizard Wars right away.
