Magicka: Vietnam Invades Digital Retail Shelves Everywhere

Launch Trailer Released, No Embedded Journalists Hurt

NEW YORK April 12, 2011 I love the smell of Magicka in the morning. The whimsical wizards of Paradox Interactive and Arrowhead Game Studios today announced the deployment of Magicka: Vietnam, the DLC for action-adventure game Magicka.  The DLC Magicka: Vietnam for the friendly fire-filled indie hit is now available on all leading digital distribution platforms for $4.99.

Answer the call of duty to take up arms against the Goblin-Cong, trudging through a napalm-scorched battlefield with a bad company of up to four wizard GIs, and earn new medals of honor and achievements as you eliminate scores of enemies with not-so-wizardly machine guns and a new napalm Magick, liberate prisoners from POW camps, and escape to a Huey before it gets shot down by a pistol all of this, of course, in your stylish robe fatigues and hood-friendly helmet.

In commemoration of the Magicka: Vietnam launch, Magicka will be discounted on several digital download portals, allowing players to snatch up the acclaimed title for up to 50% off including bundles and 4Packs. So be on the look out for Special Promotions for Magicka! The deals will magickally appear here:
