Paradox Interactive and Arrowhead Game Studios have announced that Magicka: Vietnam will be released via digital distribution on the 12th of April.

They have also announced that only the session host will require the expansion for all to be able to play and it will come with a new survival challenge map with increased difficulty, as requested by the community.

"Have you ever wondered what it would have been like if wizards were allowed to roam the jungles of war-torn Vietnam, attempting to bring peace and stability to the region by casting spells on all opponents?

Magicka: Vietnam features a lengthy challenge scenario that puts you in the combat boots and stylish robe of a Wizard GI. Venture deep into the Goblin-Cong jungle with up to three fellow soldiers in a heroic attempt to liberate prisoners from a POW camp and face off against deadly Vietnam themed enemies. Destroy enemy positions, escape the perils of the jungle and return safely to the evacuation helicopter ("Get to the chopper!!")."
