There’s a video interview with MAG’s Seth Luisi over on Giant Bomb, where the director of development chats about play progression, development, and many other things.
It’s around eight minutes long and loads of stuff is mentioned, ranging from character specialization, to how the game world affects the map – but something that may be of interest to you is the role squad leaders play in the game.
As a treat of sorts for following commander’s orders, the more you do as you’re told and complete the objectives given to you, you’ll gain an experience bonus along with your squad leader leader getting points to improve his/her character.
We have embedded the video through the break there, but you can also view it through the link.

Sony’s arriving in Seattle this weekend for PAX and tomorrow night it’s holding a MAG-themed Meet-up, where it’ll be the first time beta participants will be able to engage in a 256-player battle.
For people who can’t make it to PAX, Sony is holding a Labor Day weekend contest giving away Beta codes through the US PS Blog Twitter account.
What in on that? Head on over through the link to see how you can participate and hopefully get picked.

Lucky folks who open their emails today may see a MAG Beta invite crammed in with all the jokes, spam, and Russian mail-order bride requests.
The e-mail contains a code used to access a closed application form and Sony “will be adding people in waves.”
Don’t worry if you don’t have one, you may get one later for the second wave of testing.
Loads more info over on Joystiq.

Sony wants you to write an inspirational battlefield speech and the best one will be featured in the new trailer for MAG.
Ten will be picked, professionally recorded for use in the trailer and the authors will win a MAG prize that will be announced soon.
Things to consider when writing, according to Sony:
- MAG is all about multiplayer combat on an unprecedented scale, so think big.
- The game revolves around three private military corporations – Raven, Valor and S.V.E.R – so you could incorporate them and their personalities into your writing.
- Be original – we Google too so don’t borrow lines from Winston Churchill, Saving Private Ryan or anywhere else!
- Words are slippery things and just because they look good on the screen, they might not sound so epic when spoken. Try reading your entries aloud to make sure they roll off the tongue with ease.
- Keep it clean – sure soldiers swear all the time but this is a family blog, so all the normal commenting rules apply.
Sony will also post some of the best speeches on the blog.

Sony has confirmed rumors posted earlier in the week regarding a MAG: Massive Action Game Beta.
Only thing is, it’s internal only so players that have seen statuses regarding the Beta popping up on PSN should know that theses are Sony employee profiles.
This was confirmed to CVG earlier today.
Hopefully this means that a public Beta will go live soon.
