ABOUT THE GAME
Developed by Carbon Studio, The Wizards is an award-winning VR spellcaster game set in a fantasy world. The game was originally released for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive in March 2018. Now as an Enhanced Edition, the game is also available on PlayStation VR. It’s been expanded with completely new level and a cutscene extending the campaign. Checkpoints, character customization, and a whole bunch of other features and accessibility options have also been polished or added at the request of the PS VR community.
The developers haven’t forgotten their faithful community however, those that have supported them along the road and already purchased the game. Everyone who already owns The Wizards on either the Oculus Store, Steam, or Viveport now receives all the additional content that the Enhanced Edition has to offer completely for free!
In The Wizards – Enhanced Edition, gamers can enjoy an exceptional spellcasting mechanic based on elemental energy, where the key to victory is mastering the gestures, and adapting your tactics to the flow of the battle. Gamers are tested during fast-paced combat and while exploring the environment. This is all available in two separate game modes:
- A new approximately six-hour-long, single-player Story Campaign featuring a whole new level, complete with a never-before-seen map, battles, and expanded lore.
- And the exciting Arena Mode offering challenging, endless battles.
Each mode features online scoreboards and a selection of game modifiers called Fate Cards that can change the game’s difficulty and rules to the player’s liking. Fate Cards increase replayability and accessibility, which makes the game satisfying for both challenge seekers and casual connoisseurs. For example, the “Easy Prey” Fate Card makes players start the game with 1HP, but dramatically increases the score multiplier.
The Wizards – Enhanced Edition also features checkpoints and, as a bonus, character customization. This means that gamers, who think it’s not only about casting spells but also about doing it in style, can change the color of each of their magic gloves. But there’s more to it. The new glove design now also contains magical glyphs representing the gamer’s health status. All this increases immersion, so the player not only feels like a Wizard but can also truly become one.
