It's been quite some time since we've heard anything from the four player co-op game from publisher Paradox Interactive called Magicka. But the first news about the game is great news as a release date has been set for September of this year.
Magicka will offer four player offline and online co-op as each player controls a cute little mage like creature to take on evil forces. What makes the game unique is the ability to combine your magic spells with your co-op partners to create new devastating attacks. After players finish off the adventure mode there's a survival mode as well complete with online leaderboards. These survival modes are surely all the rage these days.
We hope to go hands on with the game at E3 2010 next week and will bring you our impressions then.
Thanks Kevin for the tip!
