Patches for Magicka on the way

Posted By | On 22nd, Feb. 2011 Under Industry News, News | Follow This Author @Shubhankar2508

In our recent interview with Arrowhead Studios’ Community Manager Patrik Lasota, the game devs said that their were a lot of patches for Magicka on the way.

“We continue to do our best to make sure that the game becomes playable for as many people as possible,” he said. “We worked hard for 2 weeks to fix most critical issues.”

When we asked if there would be patches for Magicka, Mr Lasota said, “As many as possible, we will continue to patch Magicka for as long as we are able.”

We asked him if he though of the problems listed in the reviews as big problems. He said, “ For some, definitely, for others not at all. There are reports from players that have played the game flawlessly, in both single player and multiplayer, and then there are reports from people who can’t even start their game.

“We hope to solve everyone’s problems as soon as possible, but there are some problems that we just can’t solve. The integrated graphics issue is one of them, it would take a massive rewrite of the game engine and we would need to remake lots of the graphics as well.”

In the same interview, he said there will be announcements for DLC for the game at GDC. He also jokingly hinted at a Magicka sequel.

    Massive rewrite of the engine??? If it takes that much work to fix it, how on Earth did they miss the bug in the first place??? I’m glad that the developers are backing up their product 100% but it begs the question though. so now there’s a bug in the game that is deemed unfixable, that kinda sucks. Above else, it looks quite interesting i saw video footage of this game, but it’ only available to PC and 360 users, so that’s a low blow. on a last note, reading this title and description I couldn’t help to think about the upcoming Sorcery game coming to ps3 that’s suppose to use MOVE. Does anyone remember this game from last year’s E3? It looked extremely cool, and it is said to release this spring but i have yet to hear anything about it. Aqua Out!!!
