Earlier this year Carbon Studios revealed its followup virtual reality (VR) title to ALICE VR in the form of The Wizards, a fantasy experience set in a world of magic. Set for release later this year the developer has recently announced a closed beta will take place and sign-ups are now live.
If you fancy throwing fireballs and casting bolts of lightning and you own either a HTC Vive or an Oculus Rift with Touch headset, then you can fill in the required form to be in with a chance of testing The Wizards out – there’s no guarantee you’ll be chosen. Those that do get selected will be sent an email with all the relevant download information, and for everyone who finishes the videogame and fills in the provided survey they’ll get a chance to win one of 20 Steam/Oculus Home keys for the full experience when it gets released.
The Wizards is a spellcasting experience in which players step into the shoes of a young sorcerer who must defend the realm from legions of rampaging monsters. Solely single-player, the videogame allows a player to cast all sorts of elemental spells, from lightning bolts to fireballs, alongside defensive spells like a shield, to attack and protect themselves from orcs and goblins.
Additionally, the title also features a PvE mode so that players can practice their magical skills against waves of enemies before heading into the campaign. Fate Cards change can change the gameplay, making it easier or harder as the player wishes, with corresponding changes to reward values. And online scoreboards are included so everyone can share their spell wielding results.
