MAG Beta Test for Qore Subscribers Launching Thursday

Kevin Furuichi's Avatar + Posted by Kevin Furuichi on Sep 14, 2009 // Executive Producer, PlayStation Network

Here’s an update about the status of the MAG Public Beta email vouchers. The first wave of voucher codes for the MAG Beta will be e-mailed to all current Qore subscribers beginning today and continuing over the next few days. Follow the instructions so that you’ll be ready to download the Beta and jump in when the test starts this Thursday, September 17. The email subject line will be:

“You’re in: Welcome to the MAG Beta”

And, the email voucher will look like this:

Qore MAG Beta

Remember, you only have 4 days left to get in on the action as the Public Beta entry deadline for Qore subscribers is this Thursday, September 17. Please allow at least 5 business days for delivery once you subscribe.

Qore subscribers will have access to the MAG Beta Test from September 17 through November 8. The hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 10am-1pm and 5-8pm Pacific (PDT).

Once again, here are the eligibility requirements:

  • The Qore MAG Beta offer is open to Qore subscribers only, not to single episode purchasers.
  • All Beta invitations are restricted to persons 18 years and older.
  • We must have your current, valid e-mail address on file.
  • You must be opted in to receiving communications from PlayStation.
  • Vouchers will be sent to the e-mail associated with the PSN account that purchased the Qore subscription, not to any sub-accounts.

You can update your e-mail address and check your notification preferences via your profile on PS.com or on the PS3 itself under Account Management/Account Information. Be sure that you have “opted in” to receive our communications.

We hope you enjoy the MAG Beta, and don’t forget to leave your feedback at Beta Central by following the instructions in the voucher e-mail. As this is a Beta is a work-in-progress and not representative of the final game, your input is vital.

I don’t understand why the beta isn’t 24-7. When the game actually comes out people are going to be on all the time obviously. Why doesn’t Zipper test how the servers hold up by making the beta playable 24-7 just like every other beta for other games? It just doesn’t make sense to me.

I am or I should say this was my last month as annual Qore subscriber and I’m already been in the beta since it started.

Will I get a code even though I’m in it already?? I have a friend I would like to give it too who has been out of work. I think he might enjoy planing it.

Cool can’t wait to get the beta. Kinda bummed about the time the beta’s available though. My work schedule is kinda iffy at it seems I’ll only be able to play it an hour a day maybe, unless I’m off. Can’t complain I guess. Go MAG.

Honestly MAG still has me on the fence. 256 players sounds cool but at what cost?

The graphics won’t be as good, it’ll definitely lag more, etc. I’m thinking Bad Company 2 (with vehicles, fully destructible environments and smaller 24 player servers) is the better way to go.

+ AshAbuse on September 14th, 2009 at 5:42 pm said:

@90: The Uncharted 2 demo isn’t up in Europe yet, or at the very least not the UK. And we all know that it’ll be SCEA that sits on it when they get it.

Charging people for a beta is wrong, as it’s the equivalent of you paying to work for them. The only reason they can get away with it is cuz it’s such a high profile game. Lots of people want to play, lots want to pay. If they opened it up to everyone, they’d be able to test it under real world conditions.

Question!

When I download the Beta, will i get 5 copies of it (like the Socom beta) to give to my friends. Or is this beta just for me? Thanks in advance.

+ baahas on September 14th, 2009 at 6:30 pm said:

Have the MAG Beta emails been sent out to Qore subscribers yet? I ‘m guessing I probably won’t receive mine because I have that email problem that most other people
have with Sony. Also I should mention that I am defiantly above the age of 18, and I have my email address on file and valid (Opted-in as well). I still haven’t received my email yet though (It has not been filtered as SPAM or Junk). So, have the emails been sent out yet? Also if I don’t receive my code, how can I get it?

Also on another note: is Sony planing on fixing that emailing issue any time soon? It’s been a problem since the launch of the PS3…

    You guys really need to read the post. The beta does NOT begin until 9/17. Thus, the code won\’t do much for you until that date.

hey guys who got the codes, did u try to redeem it yet?

Code not working for me too, probably have to wait until Thursday? This should have been more clear if this is the case. Or, we are all just “too quick” and the codes actually haven’t been activated yet. Time will tell, I’ll keep checking here for updates!

P.S. You guys need to read other comments/the blog before you ask questions that embarass yourself. The MAG beta starts Thursday so the codes don’t work.

Aw man, I just got the email and was excited. Then found out it’s only from limited times? I work 6pm to 6am and have no time to even try it out.

What was the decision based upon to make it limited times?

Just Curious does that mean it’s only Monday through Friday so that mean no weekend play? Why is that Resistance 2 and Uncharted 2 beta weren’t like that in there beta’s what gives? I hope we get more time to play than 2 3 hours shifts a day! To me it seems like most games would take around an hour, Will there be anytime during the weekend later in the b?eta

@ 97, bludragonflie:

Yeah I tried that…don’t think it was to do with my end.
That’s irrelevant now though anyway…I don’t seem to be having that issue any longer.
Just thought they might be connected somehow.

I’m glad to know that they closed the sever till the Qore release though…at least I know it’s not just me.

Thanks for the input.

ciao for now.

I don’t think you’ll need another code.

The Public Beta has not started yet.

THAT SHOULD BE THE FIRST LINE IN THIS ARTICLE!!!! I just spent an hour on the phone with your tech support. the first person I spoke to told me that i would have to wait until Mid December. Then the really awesome supervisor tried everything in her power to get me all fixed up. If it doesn’t work on the 17th( I will be entering it at midnight) she told me to call her back.
Please for the love of pete dont let this end up like the socom beta……

For some reason I thought you sent us the codes early so we could have everything installed and be good to go thursday. Would be nice to have it downloaded and installed ahead of time but I’m just happy to have my code. Thanks sony! But for future reference that would be so much better and would stagger everything for your servers too ;-)
