Magicka: The Other Side of the Coin DLC Launches Today!
Newest Expansion Challenges You to Become the Villians, Destroy Good for… Well, Good!
NEW YORK – June 19, 2012 – How can acting bad be so wrong when it feels so right? Paradox Interactive today announced that kinda-co-op-but-mostly-I-killed-you-on-purpose title Magicka has received its latest DLC adventure.
Entitled The Other Side of the Coin, the evil expansion features a new campaign that puts evil-doers in the shoes of the baddies as they seek out to destroy all things good and gooder. We know one of those words in the last sentence doesn’t exist, but hey—when we say we’re bad, we mean bad at everything, including spelling. Take that, elementary school teachers!
Developed by Pieces Interactive in partnership with Arrowhead Game Studios, Magicka: The Other Side of the Coin enables players to take on the role of Alucart the Vampire and his gang of Necromancers. Besides being extremely ill tempered, they’re looking to sabotage the temporary peace between the elves, dwarves, and humans that rival vampire (we mean, not a vampire?) Vlad has worked so hard to build up. With evil at one’s fingertips, what could possibly go wrong?
Magicka: The Other Side of the Coin DLC launches today on leading digital distribution platforms for $4.99 USD. Get it here: www.magickagame.com/game-info/buy-the-game
