MAG, or Massive Action Game, was announced in 2008 during Sony’s E3 Press Conference. Due to the game achieving what was considered to be unachievable by providing a 256-player online competitive FPS environment, many have speculated that the game would be quantity over quality. And what better way to dispute that accusation than to host a public beta.



So far the beta has received a lot of positive feedback, so hopefully the quality has spoken for itself. However, the 256-player environment isn’t the only high-quantity element of the game. MAG will also be home to dozens of different weapons to choose from. Check out the list of weapons below:
