After our huge showing at PAX, we are happy to follow it up today with our announcement of the pre-order items for MAG. From exclusive in-game characters to a one-of-a-kind Home Space to the long-awaited Public Beta access, we’ve got something for every new MAG operative. Are you ready to be one of us come January 26, 2010? Then get pre-ordering soldier!

SVER preorder

Exclusive S.V.E.R In-Game Character

This exclusive S.V.E.R. (Seryi Volk Executive Response) Hazard Trooper comes with the unique Hazard Camo Pattern, Hazard Improved Ballistic Vest, and the Hazard Improved Helmet. S.V.E.R. operatives live for the chance to achieve the honor they believe they deserve. The Hazard design is ideal for instilling the fear they are so used to administering on the battlefield. “The fire within fuels the true warrior.”

Raven preorder

Exclusive RAVEN In-Game Character

This exclusive Raven Industries operative comes with a unique Spyder Camo Pattern, Spyder Reinforced 2nd Gen Composite, and Spyder Reinforced 2nd Gen Helmet.

Valor preorder

Exclusive VALOR In-Game Character

This exclusive Valor in-game operative comes with a unique Bulldog Camo Pattern, the Bulldog Mk 2 Reinforced Fiber, and the Bulldog Mk 2 Helmet. For a Valor Company operative, donning the battle tested Bulldog uniform communicates a level of preparedness, induces intimidation in the enemy, and perfectly matches their motto – “Improvise, adapt, and overcome”.

Pre-order info TBD.

Exclusive S.V.E.R. PlayStation Home Personal Space

This S.V.E.R. PlayStation Home Space comes custom-made with the unconventional look of this unique PMC, focusing on beige and earth-toned gear, perfect for the guerrilla-style fighter within. If you live by the creed, and feel fear and intimidation are the cornerstones of any good fighting force, then show-off your true colors with a one-of-a-kind space.

Nice Pre-Order Bonus But It Would Be A Lot Better For The Fans If The Code Let You Choose What Character You Wanted By Choosing Your Faction, Not Making Loyal Fans Have To Jump Through Hoops And Buy From Certain Places Certain Places To Be Able To Have A Special Character For A Faction They Really Want!

September 9th, 6:47 am

Looking forward to this game but still unsure about it, maybe the beta will help me decide. The PMC I’m interested in is Valor but the pre-order info is TBD.

I have question if I have pre-ordered Mag on Amazon can I still get Exclusive S.V.E.R In-Game Character? Thank you in advance

zombie9 said:

September 9th, 9:23 am

I’m still up in the air on buying this game. Still WAITING to play the beta before I decide and I think the pre order deal is a little weak. Where is my night vision googles? LOL :)

calibus2000 said:

September 9th, 9:57 am

Well i was going to buy this game, but i will pass on it for now. I hate GameStop and the bonus pre-order i want is through them. Thanks Zipper and Sony. Way to go….

robstadamobsta said:

September 9th, 11:58 am

hmmm the home space is uite enticing but probabl going to preoder from gamestop to get that beta and the exxclusive in-game soldier :)

SlashStriker said:

September 9th, 1:41 pm

Your pissing me off with this Pre-order crap sony, I always shop at gamestop, and as much as I love beta’s and think the S.V.E.R. skin is nice, I plan on being raven, and I want the home space too, please keep the same bonus’s for every store, this is the 3rd time in a month you’ve let me down like this… (Uncharted 2, and Ratchet are the other two)

mattroks101 said:

September 9th, 2:48 pm

ya know an open beta is called an open beta cause it’s open. paying 24 dollers to become a quore subscriber is not open :(

Krynnost said:

September 9th, 2:48 pm

Wonderful…when MAG releases I’ll have unlocked a custom character for one of the PMCs I don’t intend to play as. I can understand making different exlcusive pre-order deal with several retailers to increase profits for developer and publisher. But making different character exclusives combined with the lose XP? unlocks? perks? for switching factions, not very kind of you Zipper. I only hope the exclusives are only visual upgrades and no special perks/skills.

Sekoku said:

Exclusive pre-order stuff sucks. Either do pre-order bonuses or not at all. :|

Also $5 and then cancel > $22 mystery-box magazine that isn’t subtitled for my deaf ass. Sorry, Veronica but I’ll swing by Gamestop to get my beta.

TGolem said:

September 9th, 4:37 pm

I really don’t like that you chose Private Military Companies as the forces in the game because they are the scum of the earth.

Lowe0 said:

September 9th, 4:38 pm

Lose the exclusive betas, Sony. An exclusive costume is fine, but a chance to see if we want to play the game before plunking down $60 is not something you want to hold back from your customers.

To bad i’ll be playing Modern Warfare 2 :(

Hey when will Qore subscribers receive the beta key? I bought my Qore annual subscription last Friday and i haven’t receive not key yet, why SCEA?
I don’t know why I bother leaving this comment or ask a question if SCEA 98% of times never responds to our question.

Hello SCEA

Hi all,
Chris Munson here. Thanks for all the great support thus far. I’ve been reading your questions and will try to answer as many here as possible.

• Exclusive Beta – yes, this is the big Beta that you all have been waiting for. Access will start Oct. 12. We need you, your friends, your clans, your neighbors, and your neighbor’s cat/dog/pet parakeet to participate in this Beta because this is how we can test our system in order to deliver the biggest and best possible shooter experience to you. What are you waiting for?????

• S.V.E.R. in-game character and MAG Beta – both of these items are at the same retailer and yes, you will get them both if you order from them.

• When will the Valor in-game character be available for pre-order? Short answer, very soon. Stay tuned.

For you guys (and gals) in Canada, don’t worry…you too will have a pre-order item(s) soon.

Look for more FAQs here and at

I was unaware Playstation allowed racial comments in the MAG forums. Can someone please do something about this? Otherwise im sure CNN, Fox or some other news would like to hear about this.

NfLfaN88 said:

September 14th, 5:18 pm

So I have a big question on my mind fellow ps3 fans. Which faction will you choose? I know I’m going Valor.

dbgUSMC said:

September 15th, 9:40 am

Got my beta code today for being a Qore subscriber. Starts the 17th… Valor is what team I am picking.

bouncingsoul said:

September 24th, 10:58 am

Could someone please clarify 4 me: On 1up .com it says if you preorder through gamestop you get access to the public beta as well as the exsclusive beta, is this true? Or do you just get access to the gamestop exsclusive beta? PLEASE PLEASE someone help me answer this….

ReservoirDogs18 said:

September 25th, 1:11 am

great options….surely i will buy this game when it comes out.

x1BrYcE1x said:

October 3rd, 1:10 pm

Yeah we could use some clarification on the dates we will actually be able to play(starting and Ending).

It sounds like:
Pre-order Beta starts on Oct12 through Nov20
Qore beta ends on Nov8(pre-order to continue)
So do all the public betas end Nov20?

Info from:

Nintendo451 said:

October 5th, 2:37 pm

Along those lines, I have a question as well.

I got the MAG Beta through the email program that they did around the time of PAX.

Is my beta no longer valid? Will it be valid with the later beta with the Qore subscribers and the Gamestop pre-orders?

Just wondering if I should keep the game or delete it. Thank you very much!

Is the GameStop pre-order bonus also available in Canada? When I pre-ordered MAG at EB Games and asked an employee about the bonus, they didn’t know what I was talking about.
