PC Games War of the Vikings and Magicka: Wizards War Takes Advantage of High-End Technology
Bitsquid, the high-end game engine developers, announced today that War of the Vikings and Magicka: Wizards War, published by Paradox Interactive, will be developed on the Bitsquid Game Engine.
Magicka: Wizard Wars is a fast-paced action PvP game that utilizes the humor and dynamic spellcasting system of Magicka, tasking players to form teams of four and blaze their way across the battlefield together, combining elements to cast hundreds of different offensive and defensive spells. The game is being developed by Paradox North.
Developed by Fatshark, War of the Vikings is a new standalone entry into the Paradox War franchise that will pull players into the brutal and bloody Viking Age, challenging them to design a personalized warrior and sack England as a mighty Norseman, or defend it as a brave Saxon. Featuring intense close-quarters combat, authentically inspired settings and weaponry, rich customization options, and large-scale battles, War of the Vikings will add a new unforgettable experience to Paradox’s close combat arsenal.
“The Bitsquid Game Engine is a great technology that enables us to develop better games at a faster pace. With the source code we have full flexibility. Features like real time collaboration and instant drop in play is great for productivity,” said Fatshark CEO, Martin Wahlund.
The Bitsquid Game Engine is licensable for creating high quality computer games, built from its inception to focus on performance, flexibility and productivity. The engine is multiple platform running on PCs (Windows, OS X), consoles (PS3, PS4, Xbox 360) and high end mobile devices (Android, iOS).
