Just a few days since the MAG BETA invites went out, SCEA's Director of Development Seth Luisi has announced that MAG will be hitting the PlayStation 3 console on January 26, 2010... and has shared a launch date trailer today.
To quote: We know you have been eagerly awaiting news to find out when you can finally become one of the 256 operatives in a MAG battle...you're in luck. The team at Zipper and SCEA are happy to announce that MAG will hit North American retailers on January 26th, 2010.
Shadow War continues at PAX; Join Zipper, SCEA, Jeff, Chris and fellow PlayStation.Blog readers for a MAG-centric community event in downtown Seattle. The event is scheduled for Friday, September 4th from 6:00 - 9:00 PM PDT.
200 lucky PS.Blog readers are invited to attend the 256-person function and get hands-on with a new MAG map.
Members from the MAG team at Zipper will be on hand to take your feedback and answer your questions. SCEA will also be showing off the new PSPgo and a few upcoming PSP titles.
All you need to do is be one of the first to RSVP and choose which private army you plan to join. By now, you've read and heard some of the information on the three PMCs in MAG-Raven, Valor, and S.V.E.R.-and it's time for you to start choosing your allegiance. Be prepared to stand up for your private army.
And if you can't make it to PAX, we'll be doing something special for a select group of PS.Blog readers, so stay tuned for more details. We'll also be releasing more information on the MAG Public Beta very soon.
Battle lines are being drawn in the Shadow War and no mercy will be shown after January 26th, 2010. For those of you who were unable to attend E3, here's the first Web release of the MAG E3 trailer. We'll have new assets coming very soon.
