On behalf of everyone here at Zipper Interactive, I’m pleased to announce that beginning March 25, our first official MAG downloadable add-on will be made available to players worldwide absolutely free of charge!

Dubbed the “Trooper Gear Pack,” our first DLC addition to the MAG universe will offer a number of cool goodies for veterans and first timers alike. Out of everything in the pack, the most popular will likely be the oft-requested “Flashbang Grenade” that can be used to confuse, disorient or distract your enemies in a single throw.

Of course, there’s more to the Trooper Gear Pack than Flashbangs. We’ll also be including new special edition Light Machine Guns for each PMC. Raven’s APEX 100SE, SVER’s RTK-74 Vla, and Valor’s Mk 46 Mod 1 weapons will provide both a new look for your favorite LMGs and a number of performance adjustments as well.

The last element of the pack will be two additional uniforms – “Trooper Dark” and “Trooper Light.” Available to all three PMCs, these uniforms are specifically designed for urban and interior combat situations and give you two more aesthetic options to diversify your character with.

The best part of the Trooper Gear Pack? It’s just the beginning of our ongoing commitment to MAG. In the coming months, you can expect to see plenty of other add-ons and goodies that we can’t quite tell you about yet (but know you’ll enjoy).

But that’s not all. To commemorate the release of our DLC, we want to throw in a little extra. And so, as a thank you to all of our fans, we’re offering Double XP to any and all MAG players starting March 25. Simply log in at 12am Pacific/ 3am Eastern/ 8am GMT and play MAG as you normally would. Every time you complete a game your experience doubles, and yes, this bonus stacks for Veterans who already have an XP bonus to begin with! Just make sure you actually complete the games you play – if you quit early, your bonus won’t apply.

Expect the Double XP promotion to run until 11:59pm Pacific time on Sunday, March 28. Be sure to take advantage of it as much as you possibly can until then.

  • THANKS THIS IS GREEEEEEEEEEEEEEAT

  • KING_0F_NY_BX

    Thank you Zipper

  • flashbangs gonna be real usefull thanks zipper!

  • mywhitenoise

    I don’t get why developers make “free DLC”. Don’t get me wrong, I love free add-ons…but shouldn’t this be in a patch that way EVERYONE has access to it? Rather than random people finding it in the store. Either way, it’s a nice gesture, but it seems more efficient to have it as a patch.

  • Thank you for supporting this awesome title :)

  • awesome, good call Zipper

  • hoorray for flashbang grenades!

  • cool_trainer

    =]]] thanks zipper, loving this game.

  • I don’t own the game, but patching it seems way better.

  • DA_SHREDDER

    Okay, I didnt expect all of this DLC from you guys at Zipper cause of Socom4, but thank you so much. The game is second to none this gen so far, cannot wait to play your next game. To Zipper! Hip hip hooray!!!

  • AAAHHHHH!!!! I LOVE YOU!!! haha this is awesome

  • MAGnificent!

  • AWESOME!!! MAG rulez!!!!

  • This is nice, very nice.

  • That’s great!

  • yosoylindo445

    yo those are look really good but why not some mag costume for our character at home, same as picture.

  • Haha okay so my plan for the weekend: GoW III, MAG, GoW III, MAG, Uncharted 2, GoW III, MAG…Oh and sleep and eat should be in there somewhere. :)

    This is great news, can’t wait to try out those new weapons.

  • I love you guys.

  • Thank you, Zipper! I’ll buy SOCOM when you’re done making it, but I plan to keep playing MAG as my multiplayer game, so the support is nice!

  • TopBanana0769

    Awesome! Free DLC & double XP is very much appreciated.

  • Thank you guys!

    Question though, will you be releasing the SVER Home Space for Home anytime soon? I’ll gladly pay 5 bucks for it. It’s a win win for both of us!

  • Wow, such enthusiasm, I’ve heard such great things about Zipper, might even buy MAG seeing that Zipper is one of those few developers that care about their customers.

  • ty so much

  • Love Mag. Keep the DLC Love coming!

  • sweetness !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Nice Zipper!

  • Man this is amazing flash bangs will add a whole new strategic element to the game. Of course there are going to be people abusing them sitting next to ammo boxes simply spamming them all over which will get really annoying but nothing they can do about that. Anyways awsome and its free = )

  • Right on! Flash bang grenades are bound to push the envelope for tactics better than the smoke grenades. I hope you’ll keep offering small free bits of DLC like this for awhile, I look forward to more weapons and gadgets especially.

  • There are going to be a lot of dazed and confused people with all the grenade spamming that occurs, but it’s still a great addition. Kudos to Zipper.

  • Ehahneli-13

    Awesome! This is a nice start for MAG DLC, but I really hope we get some new maps in the future. Also, looks like I’ll be playing even more MAG during the double XP promotion. I’ll probably reach level 60 again and move to another PMC.

  • KiLLaNoiZ_P

    great dlv but how about a new game mode

  • Awesome just bought mag Tuesday :D

  • I dig it… lots of small updates that the whole MAG community can participate in. I really hope things like this keep people interested.

  • BAWAL_TULO_LAWAY

    hope there is a add-on for MAPS!!! that would be really appreciated!

    and some changes in the weight limits you can use in customizing the character.. I HOPE YOU CAN ADD MORE WIGHT FOR PLAYERS TO CARRY MORE ITEMS TOO!

  • Haven’t even played Final Fantasy XIII, barely started God of War III, and I just brought Resonance of Fate and won’t be playing it any time soon. Why you ask? Because of you MAG…

    I thought at the very least I’d be sharing my playing time with another game by next weekend, but oh no, that’s changed entirely.

    MAG, I just can’t quit you!

  • Now what the heck is IDub’s reasoning for 15 bucks? Between BFBC2 and MAG, I’m finding it less exciting to ninja around in MW2.

  • *crosses fingers for the return of balaclavas and facewraps*

  • inuyasha5400

    how much will this dlc be?

  • I_OU_a-Beatn

    You guys have been doing an outstanding job supporting an already awesome game. The free DLC just tops it off. Hopefully you guys aren’t working too hard, what with SOCOM 4 and the DLC/patch support for MAG – seems like your hands are full! Keep up the great work, guys!

  • Zipper i love you! And welcome back to Socom we needed you.

  • Just in Time!!!!!! THANK YOU. i am quite pleased.
    Being able to participate in the beta got me hooked.
    I love seing the playing styles change & free dlc+double xp=WOW

  • mice you rock zipper i love mag and is the double expeirence on now or only on the 28th

  • “*nice” i mean

  • awesome this will make things interesting

  • projectx126

    WOOWWW a new APEX Nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Ghost_Shrimp

    Cool I guess but I would like actual new weapons and attachments instead of just “remixed” weapons. The flashbang is great though.

    Honestly I haven’t touched MAG since BFBC2 came out, you guys are going to have to give more than this to make me come back anytime soon. Like new maps for free, for some reason I really hate the maps in MAG they are so generic and uninteresting except for the ones set in Alaska.

  • TheGuardianFID

    Awesome stuff guys, as always, thanks!!! 8)

  • ProjectInfiniti

    And now for our store update…

  • atruedeltan

    Cool

    But Ziper, we need gas masks. Fighting with gas mask on in a toxic enviro would be surreal

  • Speaking of DLC coming, what about the store update?
