Paradox Interactive have announced there's more DLC for Magicka as WOOT is released but they had "no choice" but to let everyone have it free, as the "guy in charge" of pricing is glued to the TV.

Thanks Olympics! The new WOOT content adds 4 new PvP maps, 2 new Challenge maps, 10 "Sporting Goods" items, new "Athletic Techniques", waves of enemies and "satisfaction" it's free.

Well there's no arguing that free DLC is damn good DLC. The WOOT goodies take on an Olympic flavour as the world competes for Gold in London.

"The good news is that an all-new DLC pack, entitled Magicka WOOT, has been released , adding lots of new maps, items, and spells to the Magicka pantheon," Paradox declare in their press release. "The bad news is that the guy in charge of collecting money won’t leave the TV because apparently there’s a major sport event on, so Paradox has no choice but to let everybody have the new DLC completely free of charge."

"Upon reflection, maybe that’s only bad news for Paradox."

Okay so what does WOOT give us fans? Well it "allows players to join their favorite robed rapscallions as they make their way to a wizarding competition, only held once every few centuries in the land of Midgard. Aspiring sorcery athletes can face each other in the “Olympus Onslaught” PvP maps, trying to out-survive one another in the ever-changing Elemental Roulette arena, or try to stave off trench-foot in the Pool of Undeniable Moisture."

"Once those grudges are settled, wizards of all nations can band together for the Triathlon of Terror, skating across a strangely fiery patch of ice and dodging bottomless pits. We should probably mention that nobody told the monsters the Triathlon was in progress, so your chances of survival are pretty slim."

WOOT summary:

* 4 new PvP maps
* 3 new Challenge maps
* 10 new Sporting Goods items, including dumbbells, water bottles, and the Elevennis Racket
* New “Athletic Techniques” magick, including Performance Enchantment and the crowd-pleasing Wave
* Waves upon waves of nasty creatures who hate teamwork, wizards, and robes
* The satisfaction of not having spent any money


Magicka: Woot is automatically added for all owners of the game, added Paradox.

Free is always cool :)
I doubt I'll be going back to though, we only played this for the coop so all the stuff in this dlc is not going to help me much.

Ooooh, it seems I'll be reinstalling Magicka again. For the fifth time.
