MAG Update Adds "Happy Hour," Better Lighting, More
If you're still playing MAG, or you haven't touched it in a while, you should be aware of the latest update (perhaps for incentive purposes).
Zipper Interactive has updated their 256-player online shooter to v1.07, which will be downloaded the next time you attempt to log in. First up is the addition of a "Happy Hour" Double XP bonus; you will receive double the experience for the first hour of a new 24-hour play period. Suppression will join Sabotage as a "Faction Neutral" mode, which allows any PMC to battle each other on any Suppression map, and updated versions of the Flores Basin (Raven) and Alyeska Terminus (Valor) Domination maps are now ready to go. Zipper has also gone the extra mile by tweaking the lighting effects for slightly more appealing and realistic environments, and they've addressed a few problems with bugs and glitches. Lastly, the update allows for faster download and patching code that will let the developers update the game with more content at a faster rate. As more and more people dive into MAG, the designers really need to keep up with the increased activity.
Much like PlayStation Home, MAG is very different from when it first launched. With a myriad of updates, expansions and new game versions, it has gotten much better over the course of the year.
