About the Game
The Wizards – Dark Times is the sequel to the spell-casting action adventure game, The Wizards – Enhanced Edition, designed specifically for virtual reality technology.
A dark plague has fallen on the world of Meliora, contaminating its inhabitants and driving them into a sinister madness. Players once again take on the role of powerful, elemental-wielding mages who go on a dangerous journey through magical lands to confront a mysterious evil. They have as many as 11 different spells at their disposal, with which they can shock, freeze, or incinerate their enemies. The game’s action takes place a decade after the events known from the basic version of the game – The Wizards.
Casting spells is based on the player’s hand gestures and movements familiar from The Wizards, but the system has been revamped to replace the traditional “upgrading” of spells with intuitive magic manipulation mechanics using motion controllers. In addition, the game’s environment has been designed with the idea of more explicit interaction between the world and the player, making even better use of the possibilities offered by virtual reality technology.
The Wizards – Dark Times offers a colorful and engaging story campaign with an array of side characters and interactive locations, embedded in the annals of the world of Meliora.
A major update for The Wizards – Dark Times is currently underway, which, in addition to numerous improvements to the single-player mode, also introduces the hotly anticipated cooperative multiplayer mode. With the Brotherhood update, players from all over the world will be able to join forces to traverse challenging maps and face deadly bosses together as mages of fire, ice, and lightning. Their arsenal will include spells known from the basic version of the game, as well as brand-new spells and skill trees dedicated to each class.
