MAG – Your Questions Answered (+ Live Chat Announcement!)

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by Sr. Social Media Manager

We know you’ve got questions about MAG.

When we asked you what you wanted to know about a rather large list of our upcoming, exclusive games, questions for developer Zipper Interactive far outweighed the rest. That’s why the following Q&A video lasts a whopping 12 minutes (!)

But know that I had to have a light hand on the editor; any shots cut are readers’ queries going unanswered – and where’s the fun in that? First up, Zipper VP Michael Gutmann gives us the overview, before Lead Designer Andy Beaudoin breaks down the gameplay in detail.

OK, even with all of those questions deftly addressed by Zipper, I’m wagering that you now have a few more things that you’d like to ask. That’s why the team will be joining us LIVE on the Blog this Wednesday at 2pm Pacific/5pm Eastern for a chat. Please join us!

May 4th, 5:39 pm

I’m not into these sorts of games, but I think I will play it just so I can say I have a 256 player game.

You’ve got me sold, I’m buying it.

Zipper should call up Kojima to get Snake running around the battlefield.

great interview Jeff , lots of info , looking at the direction sony is going with online play i really think sony should bundle the ps3 with a headset , online play is very important these days , just 2 more interviews left from games im highly anticipating Jeff Motorstorm Arctic Edge ( which by the way i saw the gametrailers interview and it looks great ) and Heavy Rain , too bad Ratchet and Clank a Crack in Time wasnt show at the playstation gamers day , thanks a lot once again for asking our questions

gus_xl said:

May 4th, 5:41 pm

This is one I’m really looking forward too. I just hope squad based combat works as good as they hope it does.

Nicknack12 said:

May 4th, 5:42 pm

I wonder if this game can really pulloff having 256 players online,I’m hoping this game turns out to be a really great.

TakiFuGu said:

May 4th, 5:45 pm

Please tell me that this game is a third person shooter. If so, I’m buying it. If not then I’ll pass.

sscoolChea said:

@12 what the name is stupid ? Come on Massive Action game . Who can beat that ? I will be getting this for sure .Got me sold on the 256 players , plus zipper is doing this so I’m pretty sure this will be sweet .

I was amped up last summer when they showed it the 1st time.. just seeing that entire battlefield, with all the different parts going at the same time.. tanks, troops moving in, snipers on the roof, guys parachuting in.. oh baby! lol

This is 1 request I would love to ask

When you log in, and go online for the multi player, when we spawn into the game, can you please, PLEASE make it that as soon as we enter into the game, we spawn inside of a Military Transport plane.
That way, when we spawn in the 1st time, we enter the game in the airplane, then we have to jump out and parachute to the ground..and we get to control our flight and here we go.

Man that would be a killer intro into the game..

Wonderful interview, VERY informative and I got a much better sense of what they are trying to go for with MAG. Defintely not worried about how the game will turn out, in Zipper we trust!

Vilmer said:

Great interviews!

spunnups said:

May 4th, 5:51 pm

I’m hoping for a ton of customizations, perks, weapons, clothing, vehicles. There better be a ton of stuff going on in this game for it being online only. Cuz if the game isn’t up to snuff, there’s not going to be anyone to play with.

hmm still not sold on this game yet. not giving up on it but it seems like it will just get a little chaotic. and sony should start bundling the PS headset with PS3’s. need mroe people to get mics for games like this

Fersis said:

May 4th, 6:21 pm

Please make a no respawn mode or at least a respawn limit!

evildude683 said:

May 4th, 6:28 pm

for the rating: just put it on Mature, you’ll get more ppl like that, all those emo teens go for M rated games rather that T

Examples:KZ2,Socom,MGS4 and don’t forget the most overrated game of all times (beisdes halo) Call Of Duty 4!!!!!!!

Elsa said:

May 4th, 6:32 pm

Nice Q&A! I’m really liking the teamwork slant and actually rewarding players for helping others and playing as part of the squad to achieve the objectives.

…but I notice he didn’t answer my question about whether there would be female avatars or not. :(
(it’s really just a yes or no answer… though I suspect the answer will be no).

SteveO1683 said:
