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.
The Brotherhood update is coming to PCVR and Meta Quest Store on Oct 19
The Wizards – Dark Times: Brotherhood is a combination of two titles: the remastered version of The Wizards – Dark Times, a story-rich singleplayer game released in 2020 – now with lots of fresh improvements, and the brand-new three-player Free Co-op Update. The update will be available in both PCVR and Meta Quest versions.
That means not one, but two amazing adventures full of dangerous encounters, dynamic spellcasting, and a beautiful, enhanced environment! Enjoy a solo journey during which you can possess the power of numerous devastating spells and unveil the gloomy secrets of the world of Meliora… or dive straight into the Multiplayer Co-op Mode featuring plenty of totally new spells, enemies, locations, and deadly bosses.
