New MAG Developer Diary — PMCs

111 0

We’re back with another behind-the-scenes for MAG! This week, in the third “MAG Mondays” dev diary installment, Zipper Interactive gives us an in-depth look at each of the three PMCs in the game: Raven, S.V.E.R., and Valor.

Do you associate with the high-tech, polished Raven, or are you drawn in by the traditional military style of Valor? Or perhaps you’re into the edgy, aggressive S.V.E.R.? I’ve chosen my allegiance; which private army will you join?

  • If PSN becomes a unified network. This game is going to be very cool.

    PS2 Emulator anyone?

    Anyway looking forward to this game, thank you for doing these dev diary’s they really took me from “not interested” too “I have to at least give this a try”.

  • If this was a TPS, I would’ve been sold. I’m not a FPS fan. I wonder if Sony is trying to draw in the xbox 360 fans with all these PS3 FPS’ exclusives. OMG, imagine if this was like a Gears of War 2 third person shooter. That would’ve rock so hard.

  • can we get some MAG avatars on the PSN please?

  • @ 18

    Whatever man! That’s your opinion. I’m a big fan of TPS. I’d pick TPS any day over any FPS.

  • @20

    Dude, don’t even bother asking about Avatars. It’s been 2 years now and we still cant use our PS Eye camera to take a picture in replacement of the Avatars.

  • Ps3 may play ps2 games using emulation(update 3.0 anyone)
    check out this article from ign

  • @22 TakiFuGu
    I know dude. But it does not help asking or trying to get a response from them. I guess everyone at Sony forgot that the avatar section need to up date once in a while. I am sick of seen 7+ people on my buddy list with the same avatar.

  • Oh is anyone getting this “8002A402” error when trying to sign into the PSN? I start getting this new error message after the maintenance today. And yes, there was a maintenance going on about an hour ago.

  • I cant sign in either, i even updated my system

  • The network is down at the moment cheak here for when it comes back up:

    And i look forward to this game, i dont know who i will chose lol

  • station3fever

    Looks good but i’ll wait for reviews, i’ll give it about 9 months to see what happens. Hell if my buddy buys it i’ll just test his :)
    Seriously, the game does look good. Heck it’s been over to years since i first got a wiff of this.

  • please add v-sync

  • IrishPete333

    FreeWilli82, why don’t you go and cry on another blog.

    Anyway, this game looks very promising. Keep up the good work!

  • GO RAVEN!!!! I want a beta code for this game that’d be awesome

  • Bring BETA to USA. Or is it going to be Europe only like Killzone? or I will be forced to rent before I buy. :)

  • Do anyone know when this game coming out? Am not a real big FPS fan but i will buy this game i just wish it was TPS , on a side note / six was to give us information on the new DLC pack . They said the end of this month , lol i just hope we get it by the middle or end of july because if they wait untill august then it’s all over for this game.

  • lol TPS i ment FPS

  • I would like my Uncharted 2 shwag bag that I won please. It hasn’t come yet and I want an answer as to what happened

  • man S.V.E.R. looks sick! i think im going to pick them

  • makingdamage

    Where´s the driveable tanks and the copters? Please don´t tell me MAG won´t have them! It wouldn´t be a real war without them.

  • SOOPERGOOMAN187

    I’ll probably buy this game simply because I’ve lost faith that Socom will be fixed.MAG looks OKAY AT BEST. Stickin with the dark colours, smooth… How about some Socom News on the blog, how about a q&a with /6? how about some real support from you guys for a change.

    ZIPPER WHY’D YOU DESERT US!

  • Graphics looks EVEN beter than the last time I saw them.
    EPIC!
    Can’t wait!
    RAVEN FOR LIFE!

  • Wow this game looks sick.
    Also ps3 slim coming sooner than expexted, check it out at “www.joystiq.com”

  • So can you change factions at any time or are you stick with the one you picked first? if you can change, do you start at level one or do you carry over your experience?

    Also what happens t the Shadow War if once PMC is much more popular than the other two?

  • They made such an improvement, this is a definite for me.

    MAG looks like tons of fun with everyone working together.

  • Zipper,

    You have an absolute smash hit on your hands, keep up the great work. You made good decisions in making it FPS and having massive 256 player battles. Ignore the butthurt trolls.

  • starBlinky01

    saw this on gametrailers. Cant wait for the next one.

    I am buying this day 1 man, you guys are rockin!! I really really want to parachute in, ever since MOH: Airborn’s failed attempt at parachutes, I always wanted to try it in a REAL game. :)

    I think this is one of those games that is hard to capture what its like to play it with video.. you just have to play it to know.

  • MAG is going be SICK!!!

  • MAG is going be sick

  • @LokeSTL
    Isn’t it just great?
    well actually, ‘MAG Mondays’ is a Dev diary posted on GameTrailers (or something) on Mondays, and then it gets posted on here Tuesdays.

    I just think its terrific, but i guess its personal preference.

  • MAG has finally garnered my attention. I can’t wait to see who the top player will be.

  • this is so cool. but it think i saw only 1 dying animation in the whole video. O.o

    and a question, what would happen if theres a pmc inbalance? such as if theres more people on one pmc than the others combined?
