If you didn't win one of our 100 MAG beta codes we handed out back in September and didn't get a shot at testing the most anticipated online shooter of the generation, you'll soon get another chance.
As announced over at the PlayStation Blog , Zipper Interactive has announced that the ongoing MAG beta has pushed forward into its fourth phase. Senior Community Manager Jeremy Dunham says they've made "more than 6,000 changes from our last phase," and that includes "an increased level cap" (from 40 to 60) and "an improved ranking system." The two new major features include something players have been asking for: a "proximity chat" feature that allows you to hear the opposing team communicating with one another as you get nearer on the battlefield. The second new feature are the Shadow War bonuses; "depending on which PMCs are leading in the number of contracts owned, the entire PMC will earn different bonuses based on game type." So how do you get in? Well, "Beta 4 is exclusive to GameStop pre-orders" so if you have the urge to test it out, head on down to your local game store and drop that deposit. Oh, and no more of this pre-scheduled play time; the servers are now open 24 hours per day, every day of the week.
Trust me, the more you get involved with this MMOFPS, the more you'll start to realize that all other online shooters tend to pale in comparison. And remember, MAG is still slated to arrive on January 25.
