Escalation Joins MAG's Ranks On November 2
Attention MAG players: you know how far the game has come since its launch earlier this year. But believe it or not, it'll just keep getting better.
When Zipper Interactive was testing various new aspects of the game back in August, participants in the beta got a chance to play a new mode called Escalation. It's not part of the standard game experience but for $9.99, it can become part of your MAG entertainment next week. Escalation will be made available on November 2 to all players who wish to pony up the ten bucks; if you're unfamiliar, this new mode supports up to 96 players, where 32 players from each faction (Valor, SVER and Raven) go against one another. Each battle has two separate phases: during the first phase, all three factions try to hold 2 of 3 control points for a certain amount of time. Once done, the second phase starts where a fourth point opens up, and the team that created the changes must defend the final point until time runs out, or the goal score is reached. As a bonus, Escalation will include three new environments - Isla de Magma, Silverback Ridge, and Radiant Barrens - and three new weapons for each faction.
MAG is a very different game these days. If you haven't tried it in a while, you should hop on and check out all the huge improvements.
