Presto! The VR game Wands has rustled up a magic surprise for their fans today with their biggest update yet, Sanctum of Sahir. The company announced the news on their Twitter account, posting a link to the teaser trailer below, which promises a whole new arena, workshop, unlockable characters, and many more cool tricks.

Wands lets players engage in fast-paced magic duels with one another online. To play, you're instructed to equip your wand with an array of custom spells to fight off other Wielders for fame, power, and glory in the realms of The Beyond.

This brand-new update of the game arrives June 26, and will be available for all of the current platforms including Oculus Go, Gear VR, Oculus Rift, Google Daydream, HTC Vive, and Pico. Before the update, there have so far been five main arenas for gamers to show off their magic powers, with five different types of spells.

According to Variety, the title Sanctum of Sahir comes from a new map that players will get to explore, and Wands has even gone so far as to say that they've rebuilt the whole game from the ground up with this new batch of content.

Swedish-based developer Cortopia is said to be providing a tutorial for players to familiarize themselves with all the new features, as well as going over the general rules of the game. So expect some major changes to what you already know, including the introduction of character based appearances instead of the usual masks and outfits on offer.
