MAG open beta goes live

Monday, 4th January 2010 16:41 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Sony just confirmed that MAG’s open beta is now live.

The game servers are online now, so if you’ve already downloaded the new patch and data set you start playing straight away.

If you haven’t, get details on how to get involved below.

All you do to get shooting in Zipper’s semi-massively multiplayer PS3 FPS is this:

  1. Log on to the PlayStation Store and download the MAG Beta file like you would any other freely-available PSN video or demo (37 MB)
  2. Launch the MAG Beta program from your XMB to download a special patch that will restart MAG once the update has been received (another 38 MB)
  3. After the reboot, the beta will reconnect and download the actual game data so that you can play (1.8 GB – 2.3 GB depending on your region)

SCEE’s just warned that the game’s experiencing some connection issues, so don’t snap your DualShock if you can’t get on immediately.

The game’s out January 29.

    I’ll give this another go tonight. Wasn’t impressed with the closed beta though.

    Other than the very large team sizes, the game isn’t ground breaking within it’s genre by any means, although great fun to play (No lag whatsoever btw) and is easy to pick up. Weapons and kit improve the more you unlock etc.

    I didn’t find much to like on the first phase of closed beta, but I’ll give it a second chance.
