Magicka 2 fans will be able to play through a hands-on Sneak Peek version of the game ahead of its May 26 release date.
Knowing that Magicka 2 players will need to acclimatize themselves to the rampant, sociopathic team-killing of their fellow Wizards, Paradox is providing fans who pre-order the game with a preview version of the game, along with previews for three friends.
All pre-orders on PC and on the PlayStation 4 will include access for four players to the Sneak Peek beginning on May 5, 2015, and lasting through May 10.
The Sneak Peek version of Magicka 2 will allow pre-ordering prestidigitators to sample the following portions of the game:
- The Prologue, in which Wizards discover what has happened in Midgård since the last adventure, learn to spell again in a helpful tutorial and figure out who not to incinerate
- The First Mission of the Adventure Campaign, in which Wizards use a combination of elemental spells to prevent and/or cause mayhem
- “The Festival,” a Challenge level in which Wizards are challenged to attain a high score while opposed by score-hating monsters
