Zipper Reveals PMC Groups For MAG

MAG is all about massive scope and scale, so it shouldn't surprise you that there are three PMCs (Private Military Contractors) to choose from before venturing out into those hellish battlefields.

The three PMCs are Raven, S.V.E.R. and Valor. They call the latter your "traditional, grizzled, hardened, in-country" military guy, who isn't afraid to rush into battle with guns blazing. Raven is a little more reserved but more tactical; more slick in nature, the "super-polished, up-to-the-minute technology" guys. S.V.E.R. - pronounced like "sever" - are like the bad boys of the military; they probably grew up looking for fights, and although they may not have the latest gear and training like Raven, they have that inherent battle instinct. Zipper doesn't want to say S.V.E.R. are the "punks" of the field but we understand their meaning. You can hear all about it in a recent video over at the PlayStation Blog, which features the PMC explanations and a look at how they perform in combat. The best part about these separate factions is that they are so distinct from one another that the player will want to stay loyal to one group. Furthermore, how they're portrayed in the game will be different as well; they talk about the altering styles in terms of HQ setups for the contrasting Raven and S.V.E.R. PMCs, for example.

So of course, the question is, which PMC are you going to join? Valor is "perfect" for those who are familiar with and love military shooters, but the other two feature a few fresh elements. Well, either way, MAG is going to be one hell of an experience.

PMC's? That is an interesting twist no doubt? That is very realistic when you think of todays theaters of war. Don't know about the tech issues though... I suspect today if any "military contract group" were hired they would be armed to the teeth and equipped with the best tech available at the time.

Q!

I suppose is depends on the weaponry and I would need a bit more info on the other groups to decide. I hope I have enough money left from this years laundry list of smashing games coming out.

S.V.E.R seems to be my choice aswell, but it all comes down to what guns/other weapons, and even helecopters, tanks, apc's, ect... are exclusive to each faction..

if they have pilotable airplanes, then thats gonna put a smile on my face

Is Sony aiming to steal the crow of best Online FPS with this crazy game?
They might just give MW2 a run for its money at least on the online section.

After reading the comments on the PS blog I'm worried this game will be a little two-sided.

Is this game going to work like an MMO?

Sorta, there's a Shadow War type deal that over time the more wins each faction gets it racks up over a world-wide scale thing...i think.. o.o

But yes, Raven ftw. Gotta have that new tech

No one seems interested in Valor... I guess i'm leaning that way because my dad's serving his 3rd tour in Iraq(well, now he's coming home).... But Raven is definitely got some of my attention. I've never been much for the reckless side, so looks like S.V.E.R is out of the picture.

Either Valor or Raven. Likely Raven though, I want to see more of what Valor has in store until I go that way though.
