Magicka: The Stars Are Left Expansion Trailer and Release
Published on 2011-11-29 14:27:00
The trailer for Magicka's "The Stars Are Left" expansion was released today by Paradox Interactive and Arrowhead Game Studios. Like the PVP trailer before it, the release trailer for The Stars Are Left uses a "live action" style with no game footage, but both trailers do a great job of stirring up interest. The original Magicka debut trailer as well as an earlier The Stars Are Left trailer use game footage if you're interested.
The Stars Are Left promises a "Lovecraftian horror mystery-campaign that will send the player into the depths of insanity." Sounds good, and if the trailer is any indication, looks good. The expansion will also release today for a price of $4.99 $5.99, the same as slightly more than previous expansion Magicka: Vietnam. The new content can be played by anyone playing with someone who owns the expansion. I think most of Magicka's minor DLC is bad, but actions and content like this redeem everything.
Update: The price on Steam is $5.99, despite the earlier information with the trailer claiming the price would be $4.99. Oh well. Also, two additional mini-DLCs (Holiday Spirit and Horror Props item packs) are now available for $2 each, but they seem a little more substantial than some of the previous DLC.
The Stars Are Left features include:
All new adventure including several levels steeped in Lovecraftian lore
2 Challenge maps
2 new robes
2 new bosses
Several new enemies
New Items and Magicks
Innovative and dynamic spellcasting system with thousands of possible combinations.
Up to four player co-op in all game modes as well as single player option.
