First MAG DLC free, coming next week

Jeremy Dunham's Avatar + Posted by Jeremy Dunham on Mar 18, 2010 // Sr. Community Manager, Zipper Interactive

On behalf of everyone here at Zipper Interactive, I’m pleased to announce that beginning March 25, our first official MAG downloadable add-on will be made available to players worldwide absolutely free of charge!

Dubbed the “Trooper Gear Pack,” our first DLC addition to the MAG universe will offer a number of cool goodies for veterans and first timers alike. Out of everything in the pack, the most popular will likely be the oft-requested “Flashbang Grenade” that can be used to confuse, disorient or distract your enemies in a single throw.

Of course, there’s more to the Trooper Gear Pack than Flashbangs. We’ll also be including new special edition Light Machine Guns for each PMC. Raven’s APEX 100SE, SVER’s RTK-74 Vla, and Valor’s Mk 46 Mod 1 weapons will provide both a new look for your favorite LMGs and a number of performance adjustments as well.

The last element of the pack will be two additional uniforms – “Trooper Dark” and “Trooper Light.” Available to all three PMCs, these uniforms are specifically designed for urban and interior combat situations and give you two more aesthetic options to diversify your character with.

The best part of the Trooper Gear Pack? It’s just the beginning of our ongoing commitment to MAG. In the coming months, you can expect to see plenty of other add-ons and goodies that we can’t quite tell you about yet (but know you’ll enjoy).

But that’s not all. To commemorate the release of our DLC, we want to throw in a little extra. And so, as a thank you to all of our fans, we’re offering Double XP to any and all MAG players starting March 25. Simply log in at 12am Pacific/ 3am Eastern/ 8am GMT and play MAG as you normally would. Every time you complete a game your experience doubles, and yes, this bonus stacks for Veterans who already have an XP bonus to begin with! Just make sure you actually complete the games you play – if you quit early, your bonus won’t apply.

Expect the Double XP promotion to run until 11:59pm Pacific time on Sunday, March 28. Be sure to take advantage of it as much as you possibly can until then.

I am wondering whether or not to get mag. Can you have more than one Pmc profile on a psn profile?


108

+ VengenceZERO on March 23rd, 2010 at 11:49 pm said:

This is a great addition to the game, but it would be cool to add clothing apparel with benefits like gas masks, more attachments like shotgun masterkey, and bigger arsenal of weapons

117

+ Legubreous on March 25th, 2010 at 10:28 am said:

@ Zerotheklown:

At the end when it gives you your point total it is called a “Directive Bonus”.

@ Zipper

Where is the new DLC can’t find it anywhere in the PSN and it is now March 25th plus I have seen many people using the flash grenades. So if you will could you resolve this matter soon please. Thanks for a great game it has been a long time since I have enjoyed playing a first person shooter.

I don,t like that only a few people have access to the new DLC, it gives them a advantage over those who cant get it yet. Please resolve this ASAP.

Yeah we still have to wait on Sony to update the Playstation Store which can be anytime before midnight. It isn’t Zippers fault.


133

+ VengenceZERO on March 25th, 2010 at 4:01 pm said:

Cant complain about the delayed DLC, better to have it free and late than on-time and overpriced. lovin the double xp though. Thx Zipper


134

Oh and that would be midnight by Sonys time where ever they are located. 6:00 pm here in Texas and still nothing.

@ Hitman-Merc

That is because Sony hasn’t updated the PlayStation Store yet.

Can anyone tell me why the shotgun and knife are so inconsistent in this game??? A shotgun cant drop a light armored enemy at point blank range?? Knives arent one hit one kill when you hit them from the front??? this is so frustrating
