PostSubject: MAG Information   Fri Apr 10, 2009 12:43 am

This thread will be kept updated about the game Zipper announced at
E3. As of right now its being called "Massive Action Game" although it
is possible that it is a placeholder name until a final name is chosen. Time will tell.

Gameplay Information:
• 256 players
• 8 player squads
- Each squad has separate objectives to complete
- Inspiration from real life military operations• Lead by people who are "proven" to be good leaders
- Squad Leaders vs Even higher Chains of Command
• Character advancement tree to fine-tune your character
- Character development is about customization, personalizing, and specializing
- Not a linear progression benefiting the player (ex. not like COD, Battlefield)
• Medal/Award system will be in place
• Vehicles including ground and air combat
• Set in the near future, 10-20 years
- Many weapons in the game are weapons currently in experimental/testing phases
• Long Term Goals• Action Shooter at its core
• Strictly multiplayer
- Online only

General Information:
• Zipper has been working on the game for about 3 years
- Created a brand new server architecture to make the number of players possible in game at once
• Graphically Impressive (Look at the In-Game Screenshot in the "Images" Section below)
• Will NOT carry the SOCOM franchise name (Confirmed via PlayStation Blog) & (Confirmed via Abigale)
2009 Release -> Sony confirms MAG for '09 (Press Release via Wired)
"Groundbreaking large scale combat, intimacy of 8-player squad combat, and character growth"

• Three warring factions (Hammer, Raven, Sver)
- 3 Confirmed, possibly more?
