Magicka 2 hiring wizards on PlayStation 4 [update: PC too]


Paradox Interactive is bringing top-down wizardry to PlayStation 4 with Magicka 2. While Sony's E3 trailer adorably painted the life of an unemployed mage, gameplay footage was sparse, as were details on the follow-up to the 2011 co-op adventure.

Update: A fresh press release notes the four-player co-op adventure is coming to PC too. Paradox promises a story campaign and new co-op features, but most importantly, it also shares that trailer with us so that we can share it with you.
