MAG Arrives on January 26, 2010 – Jump into the Shadow War at PAX Seattle Blog Meet-Up

Seth Luisi's Avatar Posted by Director of Development, SCEA

We know you have been eagerly awaiting news to find out when you can finally become one of the 256 operatives in a MAG battle…you’re in luck. The team at Zipper and SCEA are happy to announce that MAG will hit North American retailers on January 26th, 2010.

We also know that many of you have an itchy trigger finger, so we’re making sure that you have plenty of opportunities to experience the battle before launch. Many of you were fortunate to have some time with MAG at E3. Now the Shadow War continues at PAX; Join Zipper, SCEA, Jeff, Chris and fellow PlayStation.Blog readers for a MAG-centric community event in downtown Seattle. The event is scheduled for Friday, September 4th from 6:00 – 9:00 PM PDT. 200 lucky PS.Blog readers are invited to attend the 256-person function and get hands-on with a new MAG map. Members from the MAG team at Zipper will be on hand to take your feedback and answer your questions. SCEA will also be showing off the new PSPgo and a few upcoming PSP titles.

All you need to do is be one of the first to RSVP below and choose which private army you plan to join. By now, you’ve read and heard some of the information on the three PMCs in MAG—Raven, Valor, and S.V.E.R.—and it’s time for you to start choosing your allegiance. Be prepared to stand up for your private army.

And if you can’t make it to PAX, we’ll be doing something special for a select group of PS.Blog readers, so stay tuned for more details. We’ll also be releasing more information on the MAG Public Beta very soon.

Battle lines are being drawn in the Shadow War and no mercy will be shown after January 26th, 2010. For those of you who were unable to attend E3, here’s the first Web release of the MAG E3 trailer. We’ll have new assets coming very soon.

Add Your Own

Jeff, your reply to the guy that said “I hate SCEA” is one fantastic reason NOT to hate you guys. XD

Seriously, you rock. Don’t listen to people like that, we all know you’re awesome. XD

Estimation of Australian release date?

before anyone bashes me im in full support of MAG and Sony and their products.

ok soo i don’t know if this is a good move by Sony and Zipper to push the game into the first quarter of 2010, because most people will still be playing MW2 and somwere around the same time another big title in BFBC2 is hitting the stores along with ALL the other titles that were pushed into this very same timeframe.

I guess time will tell if this was a bold move.

“We’ll also be releasing more information on the MAG Public Beta very soon.”

So it’s a *public* beta?
Everyone with a PS3 and a PSN acount will be able to download it for free?
Would that be for people in Europe too, or just in the US?

i cant wait for MAG. it looks good an it may be challenging at first. anyone know what faction they’re going with?

stargiss said:

August 17th, 2:54 am

I have been SO excited about MAG since the first time I heard of it. My wife is completely sick of hearing about it, I have read and watched everything I can find about it and am very excited to finally have a release date. Too bad it’s not until late January, I will have driven everyone nuts by then. I have never been in on any beta but am holding out that this will be my first one. I can not think of any other game I would have ever wanted to get in on the beta more so than this. I will be keeping my fingers crossed and hoping my family doesn’t pack up and leave me because they can’t stand hearing anymore about it before January 26. Good luck to all of us praying for a sneak peak at what is sure to be the most amazing console video game in history.

I want the beta or I will cry like a small child who just got punched in the face and had his candy taken from him! This game just blows my mind in FPS. It’s gonna be a turning point in gaming… kinda like Half-Life was for FPS.
