Surprise! Magicka is still kicking almost three years after its initial release, all thanks to nearly two dozen DLC packs. That epic tale is officially coming to a close as the final chapter in the Magicka saga is turned loose to the world. To kick off the festivities, Steam is offering a free Magicka weekend and discounting the game and DLCs by 75%!
Magicka: Dungeons & Gargoyles continues and concludes the Dungeons & Daemons expansion with more of what's made the game so great these past few years. Stuck in the all-new city of Old Aldrheim, the wizards are desperately searching for a way home, all while new enemies keep attacking them and stuff. It isn't very polite, but the wizards with all their elemental mixings aren't very polite, either.
If you somehow missed Magicka all this time, shame on you. The wild experience of blending magic bases to craft what feels like an unlimited number of spells is shockingly fun, but when you bring along co-op friends, suddenly it's the maddest game you've ever played. "Accidentally" kill teammates with fireballs, then watch as they get back up and "accidentally" whack you with their staff. Bury your respective hatchets and work together to create shields, mix spells for supreme damage, heal each other, and cross the streams for a powerful blast.
Magicka's sense of humor also has a bit of a reputation. Expect everything from Star Trek references to riffs on Monty Python, all spoken with a Sims meets Swedish Chef style of voice acting. Jokes are around every corner, the writing is spot-on awesome, and did we mention you can drop a meteor on your friend's head? Because you can.
Dungeons & Gargoyles, the final DLC for Magicka, is currently available to purchase. Take advantage of the Steam sale and play the game for free until Sunday, or just buy it all at a tantalizing 75% off, including a four pack for you and your co-op friends.
