Wizards, ho!

It seems as if we haven't heard from the folks at Paradox North about Magicka: Wizard Wars for ages, but here we are with fresh screenshots, showing off the game in action. Set to combine the humor of the Magicka franchise with team based PVP action, Wizard Wars is on my radar, as I heartily enjoyed the original.

According to Paradox North, Wizard Wars will place an emphasis on short battles and skill-based casting, which sounds like a neat way for newcomers to get into RTS style games without the fuss.
