Join 1.8 million people who have played Magicka with a free weekend and DLC
Paradox Interactive is rewarding players for two successful years of Magicka by offering them free downloadable content and a free-to-play period.
The new DLC is called Free Jólnir’s Workshop, where players "must liberate the wintry workshop of Jólnir, the Crimson King, from a horde of goblins," the publisher wrote on its blog. "Jólnir, having let his guard down following a harsh holiday work season, has been forcibly evicted by greedy beasts and needs the help of Magicka’s well-meaning wizards to resolve this little labor dispute. New monsters, including Goblin Snow Troopers and Autonomous Cannons, will defend their new holdings in the middle of a hazardous blizzard, while wizards take cover behind enormous piles of leftover presents and packages."
Paradox is also letting new players try out the action-adventure game for free this weekend. Magicka has sold 1.8 million copies since launch in 2011, releasing expansions such as Vietnam and The Stars Are Left.
