Important Update Regarding Magicka: Wizard Wars


It’s with regret that we have to announce that we will be closing down our servers for Magicka: Wizard Wars as of July 21st 2016.

When the decision came to halt development on the game we left the servers open so that our small but passionate player base could still continue to enjoy the game as it was, we hope that this has been a fun time for you all (the odd server gremlin aside)! Unfortunately though we have reached the point where we can’t economically justify to continue running the costly server infrastructure. To make things clear, these last 9 months haven’t been a money-making exercise for us (for the most part server costs weren’t covered) we simply wanted to let those of you who loved the game play for as long as was possible.


Wizard Wars was a project close to our hearts, and although the original Dev team are now working on other projects within the Paradox organization We still have fond memories!


How will the shutdown work?


  • Servers will remain open for a period of 3 months from today.

  • Shortly before this post all items/bundles with a real-money cost have been removed or converted to be purchased with in-game crowns only.

  • We will do our best to introduce any old content we have collecting dust in our archives, so you may see some new bits and pieces appearing (Not 100%, depends on work needed, we will try though!).

Should you have boosters active that expire AFTER 21st July 2016 please contact our support (www.paradoxplaza.com/support) and we can look into refunds where appropriate.

Finally a big thanks from all of us who’ve worked on the project, to you, the fans. The passion and feedback from you throughout the whole development of the game has been nothing short of awesome!

I don't think there is another game in existence that can match the cleverness and artistry that this game is. I sincerely hope that it will continue in some form or another sometime in the future. Please continue to make games like this one!

Why are you closing it down!!? It was such a good game and you're getting lots of money from the current game trending Magicka 2! Seriously out of curiosity have you even thought about that, some great memories will be lost.

It's been almost two years since I last played the game (heck, any Steam Games) so now that I have returned back to PC gaming, this is the first one that I want to play again. It's just sad that the server is no longer running and the development for this game was halt.

Thanks for creating this chaotic staff-wielding, laser-beaming and keyboard-raging game!

I was more satisfied with this game than no man's sky. It runs better, has a better interface, and I don't really know what I'm talking about.

This game had so much potential. I know I dont have all that manny hours on it, but it was one of the best games out there. I sincerely hope that the devs will try out the game again. Even if they make it like 20 dollars I would buy it. What they needed was a way to make themselves money but instead they were to generous and made it too free. Its been some of the most fun that I have ever had in a game and I will miss it alot.

I like the fast paced action this game provides. It's fun because it depends alot on you ability to adapt to the other players' styles (using the right type of shield according to the enemys' strengths and the right types of attacks according to his weakenesses). It cool.
