PSVR Action-Adventure Game “The Wizards” Getting Physical Release This August!
High fantasy action adventure PlayStation VR game The Wizards – Enhanced Edition will be available at North American retail come August 6, 2019. Developed by Carbon Studio and published by Perp Games, the game will be available to pre-order soon for $29.99 USD through Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop and Target.
In The Wizards – Enhanced Edition, players assume “the role of a young sorcerer traveling through time to protect the ream of Meliora from destructive enemy forces. Casting elemental spells is key to freeze, burn or electrocute the legions of orcs, goblins, and dragons infesting the lands.”
As the players, you will unlock arcane secrets as you master the spell gestures, and learn to adapt your tactics to the fast-paced flow of combat.
There is a lot for fans to enjoy. The ‘Enhanced Edition’ adds a brand-new level to the Story Campaign for players to “explore a fresh map, face new battles, and dive into the expanded lore.”
Players seeking out some global competition can give the Arena Mode a try. There they will confront endless waves of enemies to see if they can “conjure up a spot” on the online scoreboards.
Fate Cards, discoverable in both game modes, can change the difficulty and rules to the player’s liking as they augment their skills or sacrifice their bonuses for high risk, high reward gameplay.
The Wizards – Enhanced Edition physical version features:
- Fantastical Story Campaign – The multi-part campaign offers players entrance into the enchanting fantasy world of Meliora, to travel through time and battle the vicious beasts threatening the destruction of the magical realm.
- Gesture-Based Spellcasting – Immersive spellcasting with intuitive hand gestures equips players with six element-based spells to learn, upgrade and master.
- Mystical Fate Cards – Discoverable throughout the game’s levels, these cards increase players’ modifiers to unlock new playstyles for increased replayability.
