Magicka Casts Spell on Steam Tuesday, Retail Box Due in February


Get your robes and wands ready, gaming wizards. Arrowhead Games’ satirical PC (and possibly console at some point) action game, Magicka, is finally ready to launch after what seems like a long time in the making. The January 25th digital download release, currently only available through Steam, is a mere three days away. And shortly thereafter, a retail box version will ship across North America and Europe on February 15th.

For those of you who may be learning of Magicka for the first time, it is a 1-4 player fantasy action game inspired by Norse mythology and built upon a dynamic spell-casting system centered around using and combining eight different elements to slay monsters and solve puzzles. The game’s Executive Produce explains further in this new video interview.
