The first gameplay trailer for Paradox North's magical PvP title Magicka: Wizard Wars gives viewers a taste of exactly how wizard battles work.
In the first part of the trailer, two CGI wizards harness powers of ice, earth and meteors to defeat one another. During the battle, the CGI turns to gameplay footage, showing how these powers might work in-game. Wizards can conjure cones of fire or hurl magical boulders as they try and triumph in 4-on-4 team battles.
According to Paradox, friendly fire will be enabled "in true Magicka fashion," and players will be able to mix spell elements for hundreds of different combinations that can be used in battle.
