MAG is the new massive action shooter game that Zipper Interactive revealed during E3 at the Sony press conference. It is a game that is set to break boundaries in the shooter genre and pioneer a new type of game altogether. While most games stick around 16-40 players per battle, MAG will shatter that number and have 256 players fighting it out. The game is less hectic as you would first imagine as players are broken down into 8 man squads, each with separate objectives and a chain of command to keep things organized.
When the first trailer was shown at E3, it was a purely CGI trailer that got people interested in the game, but they were left wondering what the game would really look like especially with the huge world that would be involved. Fear not, as the first screenshot has surfaced and it looks nothing less than spectacular. Zipper has pioneered its way on the PS2 with the SOCOM series and they now look to do the same with the MAG series on the PS3. Stay tuned for more information as it arises.
