MAG Interdiction DLC on June 22

Jeremy Dunham's Avatar + Posted by Jeremy Dunham on Jun 08, 2010 // Sr. Community Manager, Zipper Interactive

It’s been just over four and a half months since MAG released worldwide and 930,000 battles, 1.7 million players, and 1.1 billion kills later, the time to expand is now.

Yes friends, everyone here at Zipper Interactive is proud to announce that beginning June 22, our first expansion pack, dubbed “Interdiction,” will be available to players all over the world for $9.99 US (prices in other regions may vary).

“But what’s in it,” you say? Well, for starters, we’re introducing a brand new gametype that we’re calling (what else?) “Interdiction.” Built for up to 128 simultaneous players, Interdiction challenges two rival factions to be attackers and seize control of three command posts with the aid of several heavily-armed convoys on three brand new maps (Lake Bayano Spur, Sovot Motorway, and Iron Cree Quarry). To make it even more interesting, we’ve made all three maps completely faction neutral – allowing all sides to play any map whenever they want – in addition to supplying every squad with their own APC vehicle (that’s 16 APCs on the map at once!). To win, players must capture and hold as many objectives as possible to increase their score while concurrently depleting their enemy’s. In short, Interdiction mode = crazy battlefield mayhem.

A new gametype and three new maps isn’t all we’re packing either. As an extra bonus, we’re also adding the ultimate in MAG protection, our “Heavy Improved” armor set. Trust us when we say that it doesn’t matter if you’re Raven, Valor, or SVER — if you don the Heavy Improved armor consider yourself a walking tank.

Oh, and one other thing, to reward you for spending your hard-earned dollars on our new DLC, we’ll also be including a handful of brand new in-game medals, ribbons and trophies! What are they? Glad you asked!

Ribbons

  • Jump Start – Capture 2 Command Posts in a round of Interdiction
  • Mowing the Grass – Get 10 kills with a vehicle turret in one round
  • Dashed Hopes – Destroy 2 mines with gunfire in one round
  • Cannonball Rally – Become an MVP (1st, 2nd, or 3rd) in a round of Interdiction

Medals

  • Roadside Assistance – Capture 10 Interdiction control points over your career
  • Landscape Architect – Get 50 kills with a vehicle turret over your career
  • BOD – Destroy 20 mines with gunfire over your career
  • Designated Driver – Earn 5 Interdiction MVPs over your career

Trophies

  • King of the Hills (Bronze) – Earn the Roadside Assistance medal while playing Interdiction
  • Red Ball Express (Silver) – Earn the Designated Driver medal while playing Interdiction
  • Road Runner (Gold) – Capture 3 Interdiction control points in a single round

And that’s the Interdiction Pack. Again, you can pick it up for $9.99 starting June 22, but don’t think that we’re stopping there – we still have a lot planned for MAG in the coming months. In the meantime, check out gaming sites like IGN for more on what we have in store!

Alright! Enough is F***ING ENOUGH! It is now 1:20pm central time and neither my MAG nor my Red Dead Redemption DLC is available yet! Zipper & Sony are about ready to lose a f***ing customer. I was promised content and was told by the developers that it’s available and it’s not! I WANT MY F***ING S**T NOW A**HOLES OR I’LL TRADE THIS B*****D PS3 BACK FOR AN XBOX 360!

Hey as far as know that the Interdiction DLC was on the PSN Store at 3:10pm Pacific time yesturday, or at least thats when i got it. its 400 something megabytes which is not that bad. I played till 12:30am and i loved it. The fact that we get to play on any map with any faction is great! the only thing that bugs me is that the 8 APC’s at start is really hectic. One little bumb and you just preformed the P.I.T maneuver to a friendly APC. Other than that its really good, my favorite map is the Valor one, then the Ravan one, then of course the least favourite the SVER one lol. Get kinda boring if the squad doesnt have mics though…

I’ve been playing MAG since day 1 – and it’s one of my favorite shooters. Appreciate it for what it is, and don’t make the comparison to MW2. These are way two different games – that play a lot differently – on purpose. It wasn’t designed to be a COD clone – and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. MAG is an awesome shooter and what it does {online only, “massive” faction based battles, squads with SL’s, PL’s, etc..) it does very well. Glad to see the new DLC, thanks Zipper! I’m definitely getting it. See you downrange.
