Paradox Interactive, a publisher of games and a singer/songwriter of ice and fire, today published a completely fair-use trailer for Magicka 2, the forthcoming magick-mixing game for PC and the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system. The trailer, containing all-new gameplay and allegedly new ideas, celebrates the upcoming launch of Magicka 2, which will arrive on PC and PS4® on May 26, 2015. The game can be pre-ordered on PC beginning today, with PS4 pre-orders starting soon, according to the alarm Paradox has set on its Night Watch. Magicka 2 will be available for $14.99 on both platforms.
Apart from the opportunity to get your wizard robes to the cleaners and back in time to play the game on launch day, pre-orders of Magicka 2 also include an exclusive hands-on sneak peek of the game. Early supporters will gain access for themselves and three friends to the sneak peek, taking place on both PC and PS4 on May 5th (May 6th for European PSN).
All pre-orders will also allow players to sample the Game of Robes by gifting them a unique in-game robe, available in both Magicka 2 and Magicka: Wizard Wars; Paradox knows that a robe is the best way to stay warm when winter is coming.
