MAG Golden, Beta Goes Public Soon
It's one of the most ambitious and innovative titles of the generation and pretty soon, you'll be signing up to hit the biggest online battlefield ever.
Announced over at the PlayStation Blog, MAG has gone gold in North America, Japan, Korea, and the rest of Asia, which means it will be on store shelves as scheduled on January 26 in North America, January 28 in Japan and January 29 in Korea. The European version should land gold status within the next few weeks. Furthermore, the ongoing beta test that has remained private thus far will be opened up to all on January 4; it's the "100% open PSN beta." This means you won't need any special voucher code and it'll be worldwide, so there will be no territorial restrictions...and you know what? You can download it tomorrow here in North America! As of December 22, gamers here can download the MAG beta client by following these simple steps:
1. Log on to the PlayStation Store (tomorrow) 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 38 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)
This public beta will run through January 10 so the holidays will be a perfect time to kick back and test out this massive online shooter. Some of you have already been able sample the game; we handed out 100 codes a few months ago and other sites also did code giveaways. But if you haven't been lucky enough to get in just yet, your wait for trying MAG is almost over...
