We've been trying to locate more MAG beta information, and we've stumbled upon a few more details that will keep you up to speed.
According to TheGamerAccess , the private beta phase is currently under way (which we already knew) and it holds about 10,000 participants. This started this past week on August 17 and will run until September 7; it only features members of the "GAP & SCEE Beta Community," so if you don't qualify, you ain't gettin' in. The public beta is the one you should be interested in: this one starts on September 17 and while we already told you an annual Qore subscription should get you a spot, it's also open to "SCEE lottery winners, active forum members, and select media." Now, they'll expand this beta yet again in "mid-October," so you should have ample opportunity to land a position in the testing. After all, with a game that supports up to 256 players on one map (we still can't get over that), we figure Zipper Interactive is gonna need a lot of testers. There may be a few bugs that need to be worked out, ya know… Well, the more the merrier!
Like we said before, we'll try to see if we can nab a bunch of beta codes for our readers; if we do, we'll give 'em away post-haste, so stay tuned.
