Over a Dozen Ways to Die in MAG

August 24, 2009 Written by Jonathan Leack


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:
