Sometimes you just have to go with it. After we were told to expect the unexpected for Paradox's GDC announcement concerning Magicka - I gotta say - I never expected THIS. Today they've announced the first full expansion pack for the game called Magicka: Vietnam. It's exactly what you think it is - a bunch of wizards running around the Vietnam War making quick work of the enemy soldiers with lightning, fire, and anything else they can conjure.
Have you ever wondered what it would have been like if wizards were allowed to roam the jungles of war-torn Vietnam, attempting to bring peace and stability to the region by casting spells on all opponents? Wait, you haven’t ever wondered that? Ever? Okay, so we’re probably the only ones who have but in our defense: here’s your chance to stop being so closed-minded. Magicka: Vietnam delivers over-the-top action as players take on the role of four meek and physically inept wizards as they try to do what so many 80’s action stars have done in the past: blow stuff up.
The expansion will support the same four player co-op as the main game and looks to feature some new weapons, spells, and enemies to face. No price and/or date have been announced yet, but they've released the first trailer for the pack. All I can say is...The Bird is the Word.
