Gamescom Virtual Booth Tour: MAG

Chris Morell's Avatar Posted by Senior Social Media Specialist

On day one of Gamescom Cologne, even the jet lag of a 40-hour day couldn’t keep me from stumbling my way over to MAG in the PlayStation booth. There, I found Seth Luisi, Director of Development at SCEA, who walked us through a 128-player “Acquisition” mode Valor map that’s playable on the show floor.

Check out the video, and don’t forget that Qore subscribers will have the chance to get in on the MAG Official Public Beta on September 17!

Add Your Own

All you people are idiots. Of COURSE WE KNOW ZIPPER DID NOT MAKE SOCOM CONFRONTATION!!! The problem is, Seth Luisi (The dude in the video) was in charge of Confrontations development. Needless to say, Seth REPEATEDLY lied to us about features and post launch content.

Anything that Seth Luisi has involvement in you can be sure I will not waste my money on. The dude is a joke and so is Sony for keeping him around after deliberately lying to his fanbase

I’m starting to worry about this game, Seth!?! Seriously? But looking past that retard doing the presentation, did he even find someone to shoot through that entire match?!?

@12 C-DaBurna-B for one Zipper had nothing to do with Socom go Cry to Slant Six. Zipper made Socom 1 and 2 and then Slant Six took over. This is not slant six so why you rambling on something that was not their fault.

@ SmogItUp Seth Luisi had nothing to do with Confrontation. He only works for sony to show games off, he is the lead developer for sony not Slant Six who is the one you should be crying to because Slant Six is the one to lie to you.

well I am in the beta and it looks like Zipper and anyone that works for Sony was invulnerable to getting shot so they could show the game off. This is the best Beta I have ever been and this game is Awesome.

K1LLerBreW said:

I am in the beta now, will I have to get Qore to stay in the beta or is it were just going to mix us with people who have Qore?

You know what’s more pathetic than socom..SLANT 6 developers are actually beta testing this (DAT GUY)and others…GET BACK TO WORK ON A REAL SOCOM YOU FOOL’S.

looks like it plays like frontline fuels of war with more players that repair tool from the video looks like the one from frontlines and it has the same push forward push back gameplay. just a thought

oh man !! beta? i wan’t in… how do i get the chance if i don’t subscribe to Qore? cause that is not the only way right?

Don’t wanna sound negative feel like I’m on a negative roll but I’m just being honest.

I do like the concept but I can’t see me playing such a massive game and I know a lot of players are going to be jerks because they could already have the medal or reward that you’re trying to get.

@103: Mansour449

Hey Mansour, I was just looking at this post and saw that you said you had 3 beta codes. If you do have any extras left, do you think that maybe you can send one my way. I’d be really grateful!

Email address is:

Anyways, this game looks really great (as everyone else has said). I was disappointed with Socom and haven’t really been into a tactical shooter since then- but the appeal and potential of this game is great and I really hope that it succeeds expectations. This and all the other great exclusives to come out later- this is a great start!!

Hope I can get into the beta. Hope its good like zippers old games(AKA Socom).

Well I’ve played in the private beta before and it was action-packed! The ranking system works well with the entire game. I think MAG has a lot of potiental to be a one of the best games out there on PS3, if the tweak some minor things.

jacopo1993 said:

I’ve MAG Beta and it’s gonna be cool! Every,every time i play i say that anyone in the world may make MAG better than Socom,Zipper do!

How do I get the beta? some of my friends did

J-A-Clark said:

August 22nd, 7:01 am

All I could think after watching the video is why aren’t you working with your squad ? What’s your squads objective ? Why are you running around by yourself ? And the guy with the highest rank is the squad leader ? I hope he has a mic and is not a dope . I guess the highest ranking person in theory should have a good grip on the game and know some maps well . We’ll see.

JayD-1K said:

August 22nd, 8:53 am

this game is great! and trust me, you’re not just running looking for a battle!

i just wish you could re-spawn closer to your team. but with a good squad leader and talkative team mates, this will a great game to have!

exup1002 said:

August 22nd, 1:06 pm

Hope is as good as looks didn’t order socom so glad modern warfare 2 is going to take some beeting

Ranner84 said:

August 22nd, 1:48 pm

Its looks very good,but how are ‘toon,squad,and army leaders going to be set up?
If you have a very bad leader who says to go right in the middle of a firefight,your not going to live very long…

ace91479 said:

August 22nd, 2:18 pm

remember its in beta so the rooms don’t get full of people an at the time of the video maybe people were not in the right squad or online

ace91479 said:

footballrule said:

August 22nd, 3:59 pm

I love this Beta, it is the best Beta i have been in so far, in the public beta, will the servers still be down at times?

footballrule said:

August 22nd, 4:02 pm

DR3KDJ said:

August 23rd, 10:42 am

some people are bashing this game cause they think it’s gonna take the same path as socom, but the fact is that this game is amazing, objective based gameplay ala Enemy Territory,whoever played Wolfenstein ET and liked it, they’ll love this one, im in the private beta so this is FACT =)

@144 To quote the late Ed McMahon: “You are correct, sir.” I bought myself a subscription for my birthday, and on 9/17, there will be a MAG beta code in my inbox. :)

im about to subscribe today but i dont know if the beta will be fair with such an awesome gamer like me playing ha!

Socom 1.50 came out and the game finally works properly (after 10 months) and still no DLC. The game is boring anyway as there is no respawn in ranked servers (thus no trophies as it takes forever to do anything). Not to mention the graphics are pretty poor. The shadows, for example, are just terrible on some maps where you almost need night vision when your in shadows in broad daylight.
