Arriving by popular demand. The developers of the popular spellcaster fantasy game, The Wizards, have added a much-requested feature of free movement. As of today, the update allows you to freely move around or continue moving with teleportation, or any combination.


When players start the game for the first time after the update, you’ll have to finish a new tutorial, even if you’ve already played The Wizards. The update will run you through the new locomotion updates. The Wizards also has updated the ruins on Stage One. Now, it’s longer, with new encounters, puzzles, and precious items to collect.

The Wizards is available from Steam early access on the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift for $19.99
