Magicka Expansion Announced… In Vietnam?
"Have you ever wondered what it would have been like if wizards were allowed to roam the jungles of war-torn Vietnam, attempting to bring peace and stability to the region by casting spells on all opponents? Wait, you haven’t ever wondered that?" -Paradox Interactive on the Magicka: Vietnam Announcement
Magicka continues its over-the-top humor and homages to other developers and popular gaming by announcing its first expansion, Magicka: Vietnam
. Vietnam seems like an unlikely setting for a swords-and-mostly-sorcery game such as Magicka, and frankly, it is. Paradox, however, has announced that their first foray in to expansion territory for their hit title is taking place there regardless. The expansion promises new gameplay areas, new spells, some new weapons and at least one new outfit for your wizard-on-the-go. The trailer
launched complete with a Magicka-themed parody of the popular '60s hit "Bird is the Word". Paradox has not released a price point or release date as of yet for Vietnam.
Additionally, for existing Magicka owners, the Mea Culpa free DLC is out now, adding "The Bug Staff", the "Broken Sword", and the Mea Culpa Wizard outfit.
