Wizard of Legend, the fast paced 2D dungeon crawler where you assume the role of a powerful wizard on his quest for fame and glory will be available in early 2018.
John Polson, Publishing Lead at Humble Bundle, the digital storefront for video games, which sells at a price determined by the purchaser and the rest split between the game developers, made the announcement on the official PlayStation blog.
“We can’t wait for you to enjoy Wizard of Legend’s fast-paced spell-slinging, single-player or co-op style, early next year,” said Polson.
Enthusiastic players can play the game at the PlayStation Experience event being at Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California from December 9–10, 2017.
Wizard of Legend is a no-nonsense, action-packed take on wizardry that emphasises precise movements and smart combo spells in a randomly generated dungeon crawler players can go at alone or with a friend.
Polson revealed the development team at creator and publisher Contingent99 are two high school friends who decided to tackle game development co-op style. They are big fans of action and fighting games, so they’ve made fluid combat the main focus of the game.
Combat in Wizard of Legend revolves around using magical spell cards known as arcana. Each arcana is unleashed with a simple button press. Unleashing them in quick succession to create a combo will become second nature as players navigate through the challenges of the Chaos Trials.
While players begin the game with just a handful of your favorite arcana, they will quickly discover more as they progress, boosting their hand and allowing to pull off longer, more devastating spell combos.
Players can unlock over a hundred unique spells and discover powerful spell combinations and synergies. A wide variety of elemental spells allows to create a hand best suited to your playstyle.
In addition, players can equip magical outfits and relics that have a wide variety of effects, ranging from summoning helpful familiars, to raining down lightning on all enemies in the area.
Each run through the trials will allow to permanently unlock additional tools that will help achieve victory, and shopkeepers will help even further with the different currencies collected.
Players can also grab a friend and tackle the Chaos Trials together in Wizard of Legend’s couch co-op mode. While jumping headfirst into the Chaos Trials as a duo will increase the difficulty of the run, it also allows to come up with strategic synergies only possible when teaming up with another wizard.
Also, the fun isn’t over when your friend goes down in battle, as defeating multiple enemies in a show of skill will grant your partner a new lease on life!
