We have some really exciting news now for those of you that are fans of Arrowhead Game Studios’ hugely popular action-adventure game Magicka, as we’ve just heard that both a release date and the E3 2011 trailer for the upcoming PvP patch has recently been revealed.
As noted by Mike Fahey over at kotaku.com, the free player-versus-player patch will be arriving on June 21st, and will provide players with the Training Ground and Arena maps. Those who don’t mind spending a little money can also purchase the new Final Frontier Map Pack upon release of the PvP.
The Final Frontier Map Pack will add the Frozen Lake, Vulcanus Arena and Watch Tower maps to the Magicka game. Meanwhile, player-versus-player comes in three different types: Brawl Mode, Classic Deathmatch and Kreitor Mode, which is named after a fan that modded the game.
Instead of killing your companions by accident, Classic Deathmatch will have you killing them on purpose. Classic Deathmatch enables up to four players to fight it out in a one mage takes all battle. In Brawl Mode, each player / team is given a set amount of lives and the last wizard standing is declared the winner.
Finally, the round based Kreitor Mode unlocks Magicks at certain intervals during the game, forcing gamers to come up with brand new strategies as new spells are made available. You can view the new trailer below this post. Are you looking forward to the upcoming PvP update?
