Bethesda Softworks has announced that its latest real-time strategy game, Magic & Mayhem: The Art of Magic, has shipped to stores. The game is the sequel to the original Magic & Mayhem, which was released in 1999. In the new game, players assume the role of wizards who can fight battles by using direct offensive magic spells and summoning a number of different creatures that they can control. As wizards progress through the game, they gain experience and can access more powerful spells and creatures.

Magic & Mayhem: The Art of Magic was developed by Charybdis, and it will soon be available in stores for an approximate retail price of $39.95. Bethesda also announced a special offer where those who order The Art of Magic can get a free boxed copy of the original game. For details about the special offer, visit the official Bethesda Web site. In addition, The Art of Magic will include a CD featuring video previews of Bethesda's upcoming role-playing game, The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, as well as tutorials on how to use Morrowind's game construction set.
