Paradox Interactive has announced that three new elements will be introduced to Magicka 2 as part of a free update available today on PC and "very soon" on PlayStation 4.
Ice, created by combining Cold and Water, and Steam, "created by combining digital software sales with a convenient interface" are returning elements to the series. They take up a single slot in a five-element spell, allowing players to combine Steam and Lightning, Ice and Lightning, or Lightning and Lightning if you're so inclined.
In addition, the all-new element Poison has been introduced. Poison is created by combining Water and Death to create a cloud toxic, life-sapping gas.
Aside from the free update, you can also now purchase:
- The Magicka 2 Gates of Midgård Challenge Pack, a set of three new Challenge Maps, perfect for sampling new spells
- The Magicka 2 Three Cardinals Robe Pack, a stylish new selection of wizard-wear (not stain resistant; highly flammable; do not eat).
- Both can be bought as the "Three Cardinals Points Super Pack " bundle on Paradoxplaza.com
