MAG Goes Open Beta, 256-Player Online Madness To Ensue

Not convinced Sony and Zipper Interactive can pull off MAG, their online shooter that supports 256 players simultaneously? Find out for yourself in the newly launched MAG open beta.

MAG's open beta kicked off today and runs until midnight on Jan. 10. The beta supports two game types -- 64-player sabotage and 256-player domination -- and is available worldwide.

If you're not sure how to download the, PlayStation Blog has released the specific steps:

  1. Log on to the PlayStation Store, Select "View All By Title -> M Titles -> MAG" and download the MAG Beta file like you would any other freely-available PSN video or demo (298 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 37 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)
