CHORZOW, POLAND - February 18th 2021 - Polish developer Carbon Studio has announced a brand new content update for its popular VR game The Wizards - Dark Times. For the very first time in The Wizards series, players will be able to cast spells with their friends in a special multiplayer cooperation mode.

“Ever since The Wizards appeared on the VR game scene, ‘please make it multiplayer’ was the most common request we received. Now I’m happy to say and confirm - we’re doing it!” - says Carbon Studio’s Co-Founder, Aleksander Caban. “The cooperation arena mode will let you choose your magical affinity and character class, and then pit your Wizard party against increasingly difficult challenges.” - hints Caban. 

In addition to the new game mode, entirely new enemies are in the works as well. The total number of new enemies and features is yet to be announced. 

The content update is planned to arrive at the beginning of Q4 2021. A series of other new updates, including enhancing the story campaign, is planned further into 2021 and 2022.

Aside from the new content updates for The Wizards - Dark Times, Carbon Studio is working on a dedicated Oculus Quest port of the game, as well as a brand new title set in the universe of Warhammer Age of Sigmar: Tempestfall. The action-adventure game allows players to take on the role of a mighty Lord-Arcanum and combat forces of Nighthaunts in Shyish.
