Patch Alert: MAG 2.0 with PlayStation Move

Jeremy Dunham's Avatar + Posted by Jeremy Dunham on Sep 30, 2010 // Sr. Community Manager, Zipper Interactive

The big day is here! The MAG 2.0 patch is now available with PlayStation Move support!

There is so much new content in MAG 2.0 that telling you how important or huge this is for the game, its fans, and for us seems unnecessary. Take one look at the changes listed here and you’ll understand why we’re calling this MAG 2.0.

Play the MAG Beta with Zipper!

PlayStation Move support, an increased level cap, our revamped skill tree, the new economy system, and our highly-demanded clan deploy feature are just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many fantastic new or improved items in MAG 2.0 it’s almost like a whole new game! Check out the patch notes on the MAG Blog to find the full list of updates.

A big thanks to all of you who have helped us get to this point with your support, your suggestions, and your mad Beta testing skills. We hope you have as much fun playing MAG 2.0 as we did making it.

Awesome, heading right on over to the PS3 and downloading the update now. I bet I’ll be using the Move more than the regular controller when playing MAG from now on.

I think I’ll buy it. I really hope Move works well, since thats a huge selling point for me.

Awesome, I wonder how it will perform with the Move. I’m rubbish enough with the controller!

    We’ll be using the beta again one day, so I’d say hang onto the MAG Beta if you want to help us with future tests.

    If you need the extra space on your HDD, though, the beta is still on the PS Store, so you could always get it again that way.

@DANO69 – So why bother commenting? You don’t even mention why you wouldn’t own either of these games, all you have is a snarky post.

I stopped playing MAG because the controller sensitivity’s too low… I wind up being terrible at other games after playing MAG for any length of time. I’ll fire it up and see if there’s anything I can’t live without trying, but if the controller sensitivity maximum isn’t raised I probably won’t play it too long. :(

Nice, I’ll go start the update now.

I hope we get more FPS (and TPS) games supporting Move…

And that Auditorium game looks perfect for Move support.

I stopped playing after I hit 60, but with the new skill tree and move support, plus new modes to try out, it is going to be fun to play through again.

+ Forever_Blake on September 30th, 2010 at 10:39 am said:

Awesome, I’ve been anticipating this patch for a while now between playing MAG and listening to Zipline. Hopefully this doesn’t bring back the crowd that thought this was Call of Duty though. Brings down the experience astronomically. I’ll be sure to jump on MAG tonight after my Move controller has finished charging and I’ve completed some errands.

+ Zezzler on September 30th, 2010 at 10:40 am said:

I probably will pick this up now. Move controls really interest me, and the price drop is just the incentive i need. Can’t wait to get it!

Can’t wait to hear if the changes move MAG out of it’s “Why bother with guns, KNIFE KNIFE KNIFE” phase… I sure hope so. I miss playing.

Wow, nice update. I have yet to try MAG out, so after reading this news I just hopped on ebay and bought myself a copy for only $15. I am really curious to see how Move will work with a FPS.

+ jcreaper666 on September 30th, 2010 at 11:51 am said:

Man I haven’t played MAG in ages, not sure why,senseless booting that happens when playing, that and an auto boot for team killers, last time I played it tho, it wasn’t as fun as when I had originally bought the game and played it. Maybe when the game release gets slow again I’ll pick it up and start playing it again.

I really hope there is a sensitivity setting for the move controller…

+ Airwalkinman17 on September 30th, 2010 at 12:19 pm said:

I wanna buy this game now, but I wanna know how the game handles with MOVE support.
I didn’t see anything other than it saying something along the lines of, “MAG now has fully functioning MOVE support”

I want to know if the bounding box can be tightened and if the turning speeds can be sped up. The MOVE is all about precision, so I’d like that to be demonstrated. That or any other information, a video maybe, would be great. Thanks

This might be what I need to convince me to buy a MOVE controller. And MAG.

+ pitythefool852 on September 30th, 2010 at 12:19 pm said:

I might just pick this one up. I’m torn between this one and RE5 Gold.

I’m sitting at home now looking at my shiny Move controller, and I think I’ve finally figured out why Sony are so confident in this accessory…

It works for so many game genres, and it can potentially replace a whole load of other accessories. One controller can be a light gun, a sword, and, as I just found out from the Beat Sketchers demo, an amazingly accurate paint brush.

Has anyone tried Move in MAG yet? How is the pointer speed and accuracy? The brush in Beat Sketcher so accurate that I have better handwriting in this game than in real life :D I hope MAG is as good.

So does the Greatest Hits version already have the 2.0 patch on it? I don’t want to get it they download several big ass patches before I can even play.
please clear this up, thanks.

+ TheXoy on September 30th, 2010 at 12:51 pm said:

Move controls work great! They’re a little awkward at first, but the accuracy is amazing and once you get it down it really breathes new life into the game. Almost feels like I’m playing with a mouse and keyboard which is a win in my book!

+ thombo1066 on September 30th, 2010 at 12:55 pm said:

I’ve been playing with the Move and it’s fun. The one thing I notice (and there may be a way to change this setting) is that you have to point toward the sides of the screen to look. In other words, the cross-hairs are not always in the center of the screen as they are with the analogue stick.

But it’s fun. Has anyone played RUSE yet with the move? I hope Civ 5 comes out on PS3.

WoW all that stuff and you guys could not add the ablity to turn off the H.U.D?
Or at least make it transparant. MAJOR FAIL! I didn’t buy this game because you can’t
Turn off the h.u.d. and when I heard about move support and a new big patch I thought
Hey I’ll pick this up .. If you added the abilty to turn off the H.U.D. thanks for saving me cash!

So glad you guys have continued to support MAG even though it isn’t subscription or anything.
Are there any plans to patch in the ability to shoot through certain walls? Is there a hardcore mode that will let you fall an opponent with 1-2 shots instead of 5-6? I don’t understand how you can be killed instantly with a dagger when everyone can endure so many gunshots… but I am barely level 6 so maybe that changes.

    MAG 2.0 has changed the damage values for a lot of things, including the knife — there are also other factors, like armor, health, and what skills you have equipped that modify how quickly someone is taken out (particularly with the 2.0 update

    So if you’re talking about pre-2.0, see above.
    If you mean post-2.0, you have a lot to unlock, mess around with

Thank you so much Zipper guys/gals for your continued support of MAG this is my GOTY by far. I’ve logged 500+ hrs so far and it never gets old and with every update the game just keeps getting better and better. I hope you guys offer Interdiction to Plus members at a discount or something because nobody plays it any more and I really enjoy that game type… Again THANK YOU SOO MUCH ZIPPER KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!! :)
