Those looking to murder somebody with arcane energies will be pleased to hear that the mano a mano magical duels of Magicka: Wizard Wars have now entered open beta testing.
To celebrate the milestone, developer Paradox North has added a handful of new content to Magicka: Wizard Wars, including a new map set in the caves of Galdrhöll Halls, as well as new robes, staves and character skins. Additionally, the new "Raise Dead" spell does exactly what its name claims, by summoning a group of undead imps to torment your opponent.
Though entry into the Magicka: Wizard Wars open beta is free, those who especially enjoy the game's novel take on sorcery can shell out real-world cash for a Starter Pack full of items useful to a nascent spell-slinger. From the $15 Apprentice Starter Pack to the $50 Archmage Starter Pack, there's a wide range of bonuses available to those with cash and poor self-control. For more information, take a look at the game's Steam listing.
