When Arrowhead studios said their plans for future Magicka DLC were really "out there", they weren't kidding. They've just announced a new pack for the game dated this spring, called "Magicka: Vietnam."
Yeah, that's right. Magicka: Vietnam.
If you haven't seen the trailer yet, see it. And then read a quote from Arrowhead's press release:
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.
Now let's hope that they won't have to release a "The Communist Goblins Bugs and Glitches Win, Let's Get The Hell Out Of Saigon" apology pack later.
