It’s official, MAG has a solid release date and despite many people’s wishes it will not release this year after all, but on January 26th 2010 – in North America!
The news was announced on the US PlayStation Blog today to the delight of many gamers around the world.
Better open up your nearest email client and look for a message from Sony. Word on the street is that beta invites are being sent out for the 256 player battle royal that is MAG.
Of course, even if you do get the email, it’s not going to be a walk in the park to participate in the beta. You’re going to have to go through some training if you want to become the leader of your own unit…
Welcome to PS3 Attitude. Did you know we do all this for charity?There’s nothing quite like a rousing speech to get the blood pumping.
Usually delivered by a fat combat-shy leader just as you’re about go …
Obviously taking the softly-softly approach, Sony have confirmed that the first tentative stage of the MAG beta has begun.
How come we haven’t seen sites exploding with new information as people express their opinions about Zipper Interactive’s new 256 player frag-fest? Well, so far, only Sony employees are invited.
MAG is not your average FPS multiplayer game. Touting 256 players at one time, the game is much more than that. By taking control of a single soldier, at what point do you feel like just another cog in the machine or can any one player make a significant blow to the opposing team?
MAG Diaries are back and this time they talk about taking command and controlling your squad. Let the battle commence…
Probably the most talked about aspect of Zipper Interactive’s Massive Action Game (or simply MAG if you prefer to be pithy) is its mammoth 256 player role-call. What hasn’t really been touched upon until now is the actual story behind the game.
Story in an FPS? Who cares! Right? Well, developers usually like to put some context on why you’re killing who you’re killing, and Zipper are no different.
Wishing to offer some back-story as to why you and 255 others will be running around a map trying to off one another, lead game designer Andy Beaudoin and fellow Zipper-ites have popped up over at the official EU PlayStation blog and have talked up the game’s clandestine “Shadow War” premise.
With E3 being less than a month away, expect to see a flutter of press releases coming from every direction. Sony have done us the honor of releasing the list of games they will be bringing to this years convention.
There really are no surprises in what we see. What will surprise us, though, are the secret and juicy games NOT on the list.
Friend of the site (seriously, he likes us!) Jeff Rubenstein sat down with Zipper Interactive’s Lead Designer Andy Beaudoin and VP Michael Gutmann (actually, he stands next to Michael) and practically assaulted them with questions, both his own and some from the readers of the PS blog, about upcoming 256 MMO frag-fest MAG (or M.A.G. – depending on your orientation).
Just in case a brand new gameplay trailer isn’t enough for you, we thought we’d deliver some juicy screenshots for your eyes.
Sony have upped their game lately with the amount of news and info coming out on the title, which is a very good sign and promising for a potential release by the end of the year or beginning of next.
You know what awesome truly means after watching a new official gameplay trailer of one of the most hyped PS3 games released as part of Sony’s Gamers Day 09.
Massive Action Game (MAG) is a 256 player MMO coming to the PS3, and of course we at PS3 Attitude have been excited for this game for a long time, in fact since its announcement at E3.
They haven’t made it terribly easy to find but there’s a new official MAG site up for your rabid ocular dissection.
In the grand tradition of recent reveals, there’s very little to get your teeth into so don’t get too excited just yet. In fact, all you get is a map – and a pretty bare one at that.
You know what they always say: Why do buses always come in threes? Well you could say that MAG (Massive Action Game) is just like buses â€“ We wait nearly a year for more information about MAG, and then 3 pieces of news come at once, in the space of just 4 days.
Tony Iuppa, from Zipper Interactive, has been speaking to NowGamer who are behind the Play magazines in the UK…
New images of Zipper Interactive’s massive multiplayer online frag-fest MAG have appeared today showing off the sheer scale of what 256 players running around one environment while trying to kill one another will look like.
On display are some character models, screen grabs of the game in action and even some environment maps depicting the type of locations you and 255 other gun-happy people will be inhabiting this fall.
SCEA Marketing manager John Koller has spoken to VG247 about MAG, the game currently billed for the end of this year.
MAG, which is a massive online battle game, was announced at the climax of Sonyâ€™s E3 conference last year. Little has been revealed about the game since, however, Sony appears to be starting to finally talk more about the title to the public.
