New MAG Developer Diary — PMCs

Jill Webber's Avatar + Posted by Jill Webber on Jun 30, 2009 // PR Manager

We’re back with another behind-the-scenes for MAG! This week, in the third “MAG Mondays” dev diary installment, Zipper Interactive gives us an in-depth look at each of the three PMCs in the game: Raven, S.V.E.R., and Valor.

Do you associate with the high-tech, polished Raven, or are you drawn in by the traditional military style of Valor? Or perhaps you’re into the edgy, aggressive S.V.E.R.? I’ve chosen my allegiance; which private army will you join?

PS2 Emulator anyone?

Anyway looking forward to this game, thank you for doing these dev diary’s they really took me from “not interested” too “I have to at least give this a try”.

+ TakiFuGu on June 30th, 2009 at 9:57 am said:

If this was a TPS, I would’ve been sold. I’m not a FPS fan. I wonder if Sony is trying to draw in the xbox 360 fans with all these PS3 FPS’ exclusives. OMG, imagine if this was like a Gears of War 2 third person shooter. That would’ve rock so hard.

+ BlooodyCow on June 30th, 2009 at 9:57 am said:

can we get some MAG avatars on the PSN please?


22

+ TakiFuGu on June 30th, 2009 at 10:04 am said:

@ 18

Whatever man! That’s your opinion. I’m a big fan of TPS. I’d pick TPS any day over any FPS.


23

+ TakiFuGu on June 30th, 2009 at 10:06 am said:

@20

Dude, don’t even bother asking about Avatars. It’s been 2 years now and we still cant use our PS Eye camera to take a picture in replacement of the Avatars.

@22 TakiFuGu
I know dude. But it does not help asking or trying to get a response from them. I guess everyone at Sony forgot that the avatar section need to up date once in a while. I am sick of seen 7+ people on my buddy list with the same avatar.

+ BlooodyCow on June 30th, 2009 at 10:14 am said:

Oh is anyone getting this “8002A402″ error when trying to sign into the PSN? I start getting this new error message after the maintenance today. And yes, there was a maintenance going on about an hour ago.

+ station3fever on June 30th, 2009 at 10:30 am said:

Looks good but i’ll wait for reviews, i’ll give it about 9 months to see what happens. Hell if my buddy buys it i’ll just test his :)
Seriously, the game does look good. Heck it’s been over to years since i first got a wiff of this.

FreeWilli82, why don’t you go and cry on another blog.

Anyway, this game looks very promising. Keep up the good work!

GO RAVEN!!!! I want a beta code for this game that’d be awesome


33

+ zombie9 on June 30th, 2009 at 10:58 am said:

Bring BETA to USA. Or is it going to be Europe only like Killzone? or I will be forced to rent before I buy. :)

Where´s the driveable tanks and the copters? Please don´t tell me MAG won´t have them! It wouldn´t be a real war without them.

+ SOOPERGOOMAN187 on June 30th, 2009 at 11:52 am said:

I’ll probably buy this game simply because I’ve lost faith that Socom will be fixed.MAG looks OKAY AT BEST. Stickin with the dark colours, smooth… How about some Socom News on the blog, how about a q&a with /6? how about some real support from you guys for a change.

ZIPPER WHY’D YOU DESERT US!

+ Enigma777 on June 30th, 2009 at 12:06 pm said:

So can you change factions at any time or are you stick with the one you picked first? if you can change, do you start at level one or do you carry over your experience?

Also what happens t the Shadow War if once PMC is much more popular than the other two?


43

+ PoloM29 on June 30th, 2009 at 12:11 pm said:

They made such an improvement, this is a definite for me.

MAG looks like tons of fun with everyone working together.

+ enshk79 on June 30th, 2009 at 12:13 pm said:

Zipper,

You have an absolute smash hit on your hands, keep up the great work. You made good decisions in making it FPS and having massive 256 player battles. Ignore the butthurt trolls.


45

+ starBlinky01 on June 30th, 2009 at 12:17 pm said:

saw this on gametrailers. Cant wait for the next one.

I am buying this day 1 man, you guys are rockin!! I really really want to parachute in, ever since MOH: Airborn’s failed attempt at parachutes, I always wanted to try it in a REAL game. :)

I think this is one of those games that is hard to capture what its like to play it with video.. you just have to play it to know.

@LokeSTL
Isn’t it just great?
well actually, ‘MAG Mondays’ is a Dev diary posted on GameTrailers (or something) on Mondays, and then it gets posted on here Tuesdays.

I just think its terrific, but i guess its personal preference.

MAG has finally garnered my attention. I can’t wait to see who the top player will be.

this is so cool. but it think i saw only 1 dying animation in the whole video. O.o

and a question, what would happen if theres a pmc inbalance? such as if theres more people on one pmc than the others combined?
