Another Magicka Patch Releasing Today, Version 1.3.3.7Ask anybody who’s been playing Magicka and they’ll likely tell you that it’s one of the most fun games they’ve played recently, especially on Co-Op where your magic spells are just as likely to turn your friends into gibs as it is your enemies. However they’ll probably also tell you that the game is still pretty buggy. The team behind Magicka is well aware of this, and have been working as hard as they can to patch this game. The next big update is set to hit tonight and among other things aims to fix;

  • Network Traffic optimizations
  • Fixed distribution of the “random” spells
  • The mouse is now locked in the game window while using mouse & keyboard control
