M.A.G. (Massive Action Game) Open Beta Starts Today! (Playstation 3: PSN)

16
Found 4th Jan 2010
More of a reminder since this was announced quite a while ago - I totally forgot about it and thought perhaps others have as well. For those not aware this is an online only game which advertises up to 256 players in one game (depending on the game mode).

M.A.G. (Massive Action Game) open beta has started today (ends on the 11th) in the EU region.
Link takes you to the beta announcement on the Playstation blog.

"With the release of MAG not far off now, Im pleased to announce that following our successful series of Beta programs, Zipper and Sony Computer Entertainment will team up in January to bring you the final and 100% open PSN Beta!

This will be a global Beta allowing you to compete with players from all over the world, with access to the games 64-player Sabotage and 256-player Domination game modes. New Beta users will have access to the download on the PlayStation Store from January 4th onwards, with the Beta ending on January 11th at 07:59 GMT.

Now that you know when to get the MAG Beta, your path to playing it is a simple three-step process:

1. Log on to the PlayStation Store and download the MAG Beta file like you would any other freely-available PSN video or demo (37 MB)
2. Launch the MAG Beta program from your XMB to download a special patch that will restart MAG once the update has been received (another 38 MB)
3. After the reboot, the beta will reconnect and download the actual game data so that you can play (1.8 GB 2.3 GB depending on your region)"

not really sure if this is a deal, thanks for posting anyway, for those who missed out

been free for months via

submitting for it or getting a code from pre orders,

i seen it on the usa store, last week,


tbh i didnt really like it too much,

sorry im new to beta demos etc, I applied for a code a few months back and got nothing, does this mean I can just go to PSN without a code and get the beta demo anyways?

Yes

I played M.A.G a couple of times a few months ago and i actually liked it, it's pretty easy to get the hang of and i got massive kill streaks.
I got distracted by Uncharted 2 though so didn't touch it thereafter.
Also the extreme size of the beta forced me to delete it (Took me about 24 to download in the first place as it was about 6Gb and on a slow server)

True this isn't exactly new and has been available to those who were applicable - don't know how it is now but wasn't the beta before only available for certain periods of time within the day?

A further plus is it also acts as a demo for those who are not willing to pre-order until trying it out (like myself).

Yup, go to "Latest" and it should be there on the PSN store.

Yeah it's quite annoying seeing as in other regions they were able to download all the data before the beta started (servers were open to actually play).

i've been downloading it since about 12 o clock and the servers have only just gone online

Just spotted this myself. Will be waiting until tonight to get the 2gb file though...!

has anyone played it yet? I just finished downloading and now I'm stuck at a screen that says character management but theres nothing to click to advance, its like the servers arent up yet but they were meant to go up at 1pm GMT, is anyone else getting this? or are the servers overloaded maybe?

This happened to me once, think it may of been a server error on their side seeing as the beta had a rocky start.

Keep trying and the option to make a new character should be available.
