Patch is live - Now with Hot Join

Hey guys, we added Hot join.

Today we’re proud to release Patch for Magicka. This patch comes with bug fixes and the option to join your friend’s multiplayer games when they’ve already started. You no longer have to wait for the next chapter to join.

The patch also contains:
Fixes to several issues related to progress being blocked in the tutorial.
Weapons now carry over into the next chapter while playing online.
The stability of multiplayer modes have been improved.
Host game mode selection defaults to whichever tab is selected.
Improved memory management.
Several other minor bug fixes.

Some of you might wonder why we’re adding new features after a few years, and why we’re doing it to Magicka 1, rather than say Magicka 2?

The answer is that we want to learn more about how to improve our games UI and in-game experiences and the best way to do that is to run experiments and A/B-tests. The games we’ll be doing these experiments on are Magicka 1 and Crusader Kings 2. (You can read more about the CK2 plans here: )

For players that means you’ll most see some smaller patches and updates from time to time, as we try out different UI configurations and similar things. Not everyone will see the same thing, as A/B-testing means that we try to different options to two different groups, and see which option works best. You will still be able to play against your friends, and your gaming experience will not suffer. You might just notice that other players have a slightly different UI compared to yours.

What about feedback?
We always appreciate feedback to our tests, but we’d like to carry out all the tests in a segment before we ask for feedback. So what’s most likely going to happen is that once we’ve run some tests we’ll post forms on the forums where you can give us feedback. We will not do that after every test, as some of the tests will relate to each other.

About This Game

Magicka is a satirical action-adventure game set in a rich fantasy world based on Norse mythology. The player assumes the role of a wizard from a sacred order tasked with stopping an evil sorcerer who has thrown the world into turmoil, his foul creations besieging the forces of good.
Players will be able to combine the elements to cast spells, wreaking havoc and devastation on the minions of darkness. They will also be able to team up with friends and fight their way through the campaign, or test their skills in the magickal arts through other challenging modes.
In Magicka, up to four players take on a grand adventure to save their world from certain doom using a fully dynamic spell system. The adventure mode takes the players across three different levels, ranging from the lush forests of mountain valleys to the frozen halls of the Mountain King where wits and creative thinking are the keys to victory.
In the unlockable hardcore challenge mode, players fight off waves of enemies to earn their place on local and online leaderboards.

Main Features:

  • Innovative and dynamic spell casting system
