SCEA's Director of Development Seth Luisi has revealed that the MAG (Massive Action Game) PS3 pre-order Public Beta is now open, and has detailed the hours below.
To quote: Today a whole new group of operatives joined the Shadow War. October 12 marks the start of the GameStop and EB Games pre-order MAG Public Beta period.
At 10:00 AM this morning, all those who pre-ordered MAG from GameStop or EB Games in Canada received access to the MAG Public Beta and joined existing Public Beta users. Be prepared to choose your side - Raven, Valor, and S.V.E.R. are once again locked in battle.
The hours for this phase of the MAG Public Beta are:
Monday - Friday:
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT
8:00 PM - 12:00 AM EDT
12:00 PM - 3:00 PM CDT
7:00 PM - 11:00 PM CDT
11:00 AM - 2:00 PM MDT
6:00 PM - 10:00 PM MDT
10:00 AM - 1:00 PM PDT
5:00 PM - 9:00 PM PDT
Later this week or early next, we will be releasing a new version of the MAG Public Beta client. This will be a major update to the MAG Public Beta client and server set.
Remember, in North America the MAG Public Beta access from November 9 to November 20 will be available exclusively to people who pre-order MAG from GameStop or EB Games (in Canada).
If you live in North America and you want to continue playing MAG you will need to get your pre-order in to GameStop or EB Games and get your MAG Public Beta voucher code. This will also be the first time the MAG Public Beta will be available 24/7 with unlimited server hours (with the exception of server maintenance).
In conjunction with the next phase of the MAG Public Beta, we are also introducing a ton of new features for our Web site, MAG.com. The updated site will include a community section with access to the MAG forums, RSS feeds, and new media and downloads for fans, including wallpapers, AIM icons, and XMB themes for each of the PMCs.
You can also read more background on each of the PMCs and enlist in your favorite private army. Check it out now at MAG.com. The Shadow War is coming 1.26.10.
