Overview
MAG: Massive Action Game is the tentative name for an upcoming MMO shooter exclusively for the PlayStation 3 in development by Zipper Interactive. The game was announced at Sony's E3 2008 press conference, and will be released sometime in 2009.

Story

MAG takes place 20 years in the future, and features a conflict known as the "Shadow War." Governments have squandered their money, and are no longer able to maintain a standing army oversees to secure their interests. Therefore, Private Military Corporations have stepped up to take over, and the game centers on three such corporations vying for government contracts. The two announced corporations are the Raven and the Sver (pronounced "sever").

GamePlay

The game will utilize a new server architecture to support online battles with up to 256 players, with users divided into 8-player squads. Each squad will be led by a player who has advanced through the game's ranking system. Character statistics and development will also increase with frequent gameplay. The players most advanced in rank will be able to either direct the battle or participate directly in combat.

Basic battles will take place within ongoing, faction-based campaigns to encourage the player to actively play, with at least three factions being considered for inclusion; including American, European and Middle Eastern factions.

The game's E3 unveiling trailer featured large landscapes, tactics such as air strikes and parachuting, and a variety of vehicles, from tanks and APCs to airplanes. The game will boast numerous classes for players to specialize in; including medics, commandos and field demolition specialists. The game will be a first-person shooter.

Gameplay features

-- 2 to 256 players

-- 'hopes' for 30 FPS when all the action is going down at all times

-- Dedicated servers with new network architectures to help reduce lag

-- Streamline matches to reduce need to wait

-- All audio cues (planes flying by, air raid sirens) are actual players causing it or player-triggered actions. This can happen in other regions and you can hear in distance.

-- PunkBuster quality cheating detection. System tests for things like rate of fire/movement/damage to keep things in check

-- First-person view only

-- 256-player Domination mode. Attackers and defenders. Outer layer of defense and inner layer. Once through the outer layer 'hell breaks loose'. Anti-aircraft and radar are vulnerable. If your faction wins a lot it gets the contract for that game mode and gets XP bonuses and perks.

-- Customize face, voice, armor.

-- No soldier class system, but has a free-form kit creation. Can save three different load-outs. Depending on the choice of weapons, it can be told by looking at you so others can tell. Change your load-out to match how the battle is going.

-- Snipers can get more than normal XP for k!lling people in designated areas of importance

-- Ranking up gives access to new weapons/perks/leadership positions.

-- Recognizes issues with large scale maps and the traveling.

-- 8 players in a squad, 4 squads in a platoon, 4 platoons in a company (US Military)

-- Certain goals for each squad/platoon etc. Have secondary goals like blowing bridges.

-- Veteran ranks can enlist into leadership roles, give orders to their squad, then platoon, then their company (OIC)

-- Officer-only communication channel to help organize the battle

-- Want to be approachable to casual yet have many features for the hardcore.

-- Developers have been running 256-player tests since Nov. 2008 and plan to have closed/open betas.

Factions

Upon starting the game, the player will be prompted to align themselves with a single faction, but will be given the option to change at a later date. The three factions will not only vary in name, but also in user interface, music, home base, and the weapons available. For instance, the Raven use high-tech futuristic weapons, wear black, and will appeal to fans of sci-fi shooters like Halo and Resistance. The Sver have a less-sophisticated arsenal, wear brown and grey, but the soldiers themselves are battle-hardened and adaptable.

CONFIRMED DETAILS:


Raven:
Description:
The Raven bear high tech weapons, all black armour, and are highly trained. Will appeal to Halo/Resistance fans.

S.V.E.R.:
Description:
The SVER (pronounced "Sever") are fierce f!ghters from middle east/central Asia area, who will most likely have slightly weaker weapons, but have an advantageous ability to adapt to their environment due to extreme amounts of experience.

Valor:
Description:
These are chiseled vet tough guys and are the closest thing to a traditional 20th Century army. They hail from the mean woods of Alaska (that is not that snowy anymore) and are likely to have some shots of whisky after battle.

Game types

There will be 4 game types in MAG: Domination, Acquisition, Sabotage, and Suppression. Domination will be the main mode, supporting 256 players. The attacking team (decided by which team has less prestige in the area) will have it's squads start scattered around the map's perimeter to the North, South, East, and West. Each squad will have specific objectives to complete that ultimately add up to victory. The defending team's squads will be in charge of defending specific areas of the base in the middle of the map.

Acquisition is a 128-player mode reminiscent of capture the flag, with the attacking team charged with stealing two "prototype armored transports" and taking them to extraction points before time runs out.

Sabotage is a 64-player mode where attackers must infiltrate enemy facilities and hold two control points simultaneously, then destroy a demolition objective.

Suppression is a 64-player team deathmatch mode of pure infantry battle. This game type is considered a "faction exercise", and does not contribute to the overall standings of the three factions.

MAG Arrives on January 26, 2010 – Jump into the Shadow War at PAX Seattle Blog Meet-Up

Posted by Seth Luisi // Director of Development, SCEA

We know you have been eagerly awaiting news to find out when you can finally become one of the 256 operatives in a MAG battle…you’re in luck. The team at Zipper and SCEA are happy to announce that MAG will hit North American retailers on January 26th, 2010.

We also know that many of you have an itchy trigger finger, so we’re making sure that you have plenty of opportunities to experience the battle before launch. Many of you were fortunate to have some time with MAG at E3. Now the Shadow War continues at PAX; Join Zipper, SCEA, Jeff, Chris and fellow PlayStation.Blog readers for a MAG-centric community event in downtown Seattle. The event is scheduled for Friday, September 4th from 6:00 – 9:00 PM PDT. 200 lucky PS.Blog readers are invited to attend the 256-person function and get hands-on with a new MAG map. Members from the MAG team at Zipper will be on hand to take your feedback and answer your questions. SCEA will also be showing off the new PSPgo and a few upcoming PSP titles.

All you need to do is be one of the first to RSVP below and choose which private army you plan to join. By now, you’ve read and heard some of the information on the three PMCs in MAG—Raven, Valor, and S.V.E.R.—and it’s time for you to start choosing your allegiance. Be prepared to stand up for your private army.

My money will be going to Heavy Rain, God of War III, Battlefield 2, and The Show. No way that game will break that rotation. Should keep me nice and busy till The Last Guardian drops.
