MAG Game Trailer

By Andrew Shin

So here it is. A new trailer for the upcoming massive online FPS game MAG (Massive Action Game) that is exclusive for the PS3. For those of you not in the loop, MAG is a FPS MMO game being developed by Zipper Interactive. You know...the team who were responsible for the breakthrough and highly successful SOCOM U.S. Navy Seals series - most noteably on the PS2 platform. The SOCOM series on the PS2 defined and revolutionized console online shooters with its superb gameplay, online features and voice communications.

MAG looks very promising and quite interesting in concept. It's complete insanity to imagine up to 256 players all playing together online in a truly massive battle. Now this is how virtual wars were meant to be fought.

With an online game that can allow for large scale team matches, it will definitely be interesting to get more details on the various game mechanics and features such as communications, customization, team organization options, bandwidth/connectivity, weapons and vehicles, leveling, in-game graphics, etc. Indeed, time will tell. Let's hope it delivers pun intended.

MAG is scheduled for release in Fall 2009.

Man, I am so excited for this game. While I'm not a huge fan of clan-based shooters, something about 256 online players just sounds too good to be true. First and foremost, I am interested to see if this game will work technically. I hope it's not plagued with slowdown like S.O.C.O.M. Confrontation was at launch.

Ironically enough, I actually like the name MAG despite all the criticism. It's not trying to be pretentious since it's literally a massively multiplayer action game.

SOCOM was not a FPS, it was definitely a Third Person Shooter, with the option of an over-the-shoulder POV.

Yes, you are correct. Typo on my part...kept thinking in terms of FPS. It was indeed a third person shooter. I meant 'online shooter'.
