Pre-Order MAG, GameStop Lists November 24 Launch Date

What will it be like to play with 255 other players at the same time in the same massive, intense environment? Some years ago, when 16-player Deathmatch was considered the absolute cutting edge of online gaming, that question would be laughable.

But not these days. The guys at Zipper Interactive plan to break new ground in the world of Internet multiplayer experiences, as MAG is primed to be both innovative and revolutionary. If you've been following along, you've already seen the big interview that provided us with plenty of new information and details (we're still all amped up from that), and you may be champing at the bit. If so, you are now free to pre-order the game from either GameStop or Amazon.com; simply head over to this site to watch the awesome trailer, view screenshots, and follow the pre-order links. Perhaps most interesting is the fact that GameStop slaps a November 24 release date on MAG and if that's accurate, this MMO is guaranteed to be one of the hottest titles for the 2009 holiday season. The hype is already building at an impressive pace and at this rate, the world could be totally MAG-crazy by the time Thanksgiving rolls around. Oh, and let's not forget that more hype can be generated by the beta that Zipper Interactive confirmed in that interview...

Anyway, thanks to reader David J. for sending us the info, and we'll continue to bring you everything related to MAG from now until its release date.

You might be correct but a 256 player game really makes a loud noise.If Mag turns out how it sounds and If MW2 turns out to be a little upgrade from the other Mag could take some of it's thunder away.

Hmmm i don't think this is a smart move for the game? to many games are released around that time.

TBH, 16 player DM is still laughable today. It's not possible without lag unless you're on PC or Dedicated servers.

I personally can't wait for MAG but I know I'll love MW2 more so there's no hope of me playing it that much.

Mike Gutmann - Vice President @ Zipper: Yes, I'm CONFIDENT MAG will be relesed this year!

From the live chat that went down today. So that release date might be pretty accurate. Who knows, it might come out before it.

Not everyone cares about COD,I know I don't so let them release the game when they want.Though this is not concrete since Sony has not confirmed it and GS just randomly post release dates to get pre-orders.Seriously,you people act like COD is the best thing since chocolate chip cookies.COD did not effect R2's sales which were great and I bought R2 and passed on COD5 personally.
