On Thursday, Arrowhead announced that its upcoming modern take on Gauntlet will be delayed until next month, to allow for "fine-tuning" of the game's multiplayer. Considering Gauntlet is all about four-player co-op, you can understand why the Magicka studio would want to spend a bit more time getting it right.
The developer posted the news to the game's community hub on Steam, along with a gameplay video as compensation for the less-than-desirable reschedule. Originally slated for Q3 of this year, a push to September — specifically the 23rd — isn't that far out from its original release date.
Arrowhead has also added an in-game item as pre-order bonus to further sweeten the pot though if you're desperate to play, it's unlikely a wizard's robe made of dead imps will do much to soothe your soul. Still, you'll have some nice, though somewhat creepy, bling to eventually show your friends.
