Answer the call of duty to take up arms against the Goblin-Cong, trudging through a napalm-scorched battlefield with a bad company of up to four wizard GIs, and earn new medals of honor and achievements as you eliminate scores of enemies with not-so-wizardly machine guns and a new napalm Magick, liberate prisoners from POW camps, and escape to a Huey before it gets shot down by a pistol—all of this, of course, in your stylish robe fatigues and hood-friendly helmet.

In commemoration of the Magicka: Vietnam launch, Magicka will be discounted on several digital download portals, allowing players to snatch up the acclaimed title for up to 50% off—including bundles and 4Packs. So be on the look out for Special Promotions for Magicka!
