Magicka Hits Retail Shelves and Releases Soundtrack

Developed by Arrowhead studios, Magicka throws players into a realm filled with hordes of ogres, goblins, and other monsters you've seen countless times in games and movies throughout the last 50 years. Explore the land alone or cooperatively as you and your "friends" battle through the masses to save the world and be mocked incessantly by the entire population when you perish trying to do so. Put your robe on and get ready to do lots of prancing around in the forest!

Magicka is now available in UK and French retail stores, with additional countries to follow over the coming weeks. The game is also available for download through all major digital download partners.
