Sony has released figures complied by the MAG Beta tests along with the box art for the multiplayer online shooter.
Apparently, more than 42,000 matches were played during the first public Beta between August 17 and December 5 while in October’s Beta, over 534,000miles were traveled in-game by players each week.
During its final month, more than 65,000 players logged into the Beta, 17,000 of them qualified for Squad Leader, 3500 people qualified for Platoon Leader, 1100 made it all the way to OIC, and 206 made the level 60 cap, nearly 18 million kills were made, 700 million shots were fired, and the top three most played maps belonged to the Sabotage mode.
Sounds like it was very popular, indeed.
Head on over to the US PS Blog for more, and to check out the box art.

I’ve handed out 700 MAG beta keys by hand on Twitter in the past week. That’s enough for any man.

Zipper Interactive’s community manager, Jeremy Dunham, has announced over on the US PS Blog that MAG has entered its fourth Beta phase.
He also announced that over 6000 changes have been made since the previous Beta.
One change involves Shadow War Bonuses, which according to Dunham: “Depending on which Private Military Contractors (PMC’s) are leading in the number of contracts owned, the entire PMC team will earn different bonuses based on gametype. Leading in Sabotage adds experience points, leading in Acquisition increases leadership aura distance, and leading in Domination decreases tactical strike cooldown time.”
The devs also improved the ranking system, character hit detection, leadership abilities, and experience points.
