Magicka: Wizard Wars celebrates one year of Early Access/Beta availability today. To usher in this anniversary, paradox interactive has released some interesting game stats. The most impressive stat is the old "registered users" stat that free-to-play games love to advertise. On this front, Magicka: Wizard Wars is poised on the cusp of passing the 1 million mark.
Other interesting tidbits include:
25,000 matches of Magicka: Wizard Wars now played on an average day (average of 17 matches per minute)
Over 300 items now available via in-game store (almost one new item per day since the game’s public release)
Over 1,400 bugs annihilated thanks to player feedback, not including updates made for game balance
As a way of thanking players, if you log in between today and October 22nd you'll receive a special anniversary Imp Skin. The item can be obtained from the game's cash shop for one crown.
