Magicka gets new patch, 'Mea Culpa' apology DLC

0

Arrowhead Studio's accidental friendly-fire simulator Magicka is a pretty sweet game, but to wouldn't be too much of a stretch to say that at launch it was....a little rough around the edges. Even two hundred thousand and some sales later, it's much less so, thanks to Arrowhead's aggressive post-release patching. But it looks like Arrowhead themselves realized that pain, and now they've released some free DLC along with the latest patch.

Called the "Mea Culpa" pack, it includes a new wizard outfit, a new sword, a new staff, and new spell for use in the campaign and challenge modes. Check out a picture of me wearing it in the gallery.

As for what the new stuff does, I'll leave it to Arrowhead's uncomfortably close-to-home descriptions to tell you:

1 Staff - "Bugged Staff" - summons a swarm of bugs.
1 Sword - "A broken sword"
1 Robe - "Patched Robe"
1 Magick - "Crash to Desktop - Magick - zaps any foe (or friend)

To get you in the right mood, they've also cooked up a brand new song, available for free download here, called "The Gamer And Magicka".

Good on Arrowhead for understanding our pain and maintaining a sense of humor. NOW GET BACK TO PATCHING, I FELL THROUGH THE WORLD AGAIN.
