Paradox Interactive's Magicka has earned a following thanks to its quirky sense of humor. Fans enjoy the mix-and-match spell creation system and the Gauntlet-esque combat. Now, players will be able to take on their friends in team-based combat.

Magicka Wizard Wars is a four-on-four PvP incarnation of the series. All of the elemental combinations are intact, and matches are purportedly fast-playing.

You can sign up for the alpha on the game's official website. Magicka Wizard Wars is slated for release in 2014.
