Paradox’s have released a new trailer for A Game Of Dwarves. The trailer is presented in a story book style which is fun. It also shows that the main enemies in the game are the Magicka wizards/mages (they look similar). The presentation is very Bullfrog Productions like.

Paradox Interactive’s has announced a new expansion for Magicka at the Paradox Convention Press Conference. It is called Magicka: The Other Side of the Coin and it is where you take “the roles of Alucart the Vampire and his Necromancers and fight against the forces of good”.
The Other Side of the Coin?
From paradoxplaza.com: “Magicka: The Other Side of the Coin lets the player experience a completely new take on the Magicka universe, by taking the roles of Alucart the Vampire and his Necromancers and fight against the forces of good with the purpose of sacking Vlad’s attempt to improve the poor relations between the humans, the dwarves and the elves.”

Arrowhead and Paradox have announced a new expansion for Magicka. It’s called The Stars Are Left, The press release states that its:
“Designed for players who love to craft the hundreds of different spells available in Magicka, this new campaign will pit up to four wizards at once against a horror-mystery inspired by the popular Cthulhu Mythos. The Stars are Left will boast a much requested feature from the players – a new adventure campaign, including several terrifying new enemies, bosses awakened from the depths of insanity, and several other miscellaneous Miskatonic minions.”
It also goes on to say that only the host of a multiplayer game will need the DLC for others to be able to play, which is good.
Over on Steam you can save 50% on the Magicka Complete Pack which is part of their Midweek Madness. The Complete Pack includes Magicka, the Wizard’s Survival Kit, and the just released Magicka: Vietnam. The original game and the Magicka four pack are also available at 50% off.

View my Magicka Magicks Guide to see all the Magicks available for Magicka and how you get and use them.
The new DLC for Magicka is now available from all good online retailers. Magicka: Vietnam is like the original Magicka but in a Rambo, jungle, Vietnam setting.
“Magicka: Vietnam puts you in the boots of a Wizard GI. Venture deep into the Goblin-Cong jungle, with up to three fellow soldiers, to liberate prisoners from a POW camp and return safely to the evacuation helicopter.”
Check it out if you want new weapons, new enemies and more Magicka action.
Magicka will be unleashed in Vietnam next month, it will only cost $4.99 (£3.10). With a new campaign setting you also get new weapons and “a new survival challenge map with increased difficulty in direct response to the request from the community.” One of the new spells calls in an F-15 napalm strike. It should be good for the fans.
