E3 2008: Sony announces MAG for PS3 – a 256 player online squad based battle fest

No i’m not that *special* I didn’t mistype the amount of players, it is actually 256 players online on the same battleground. Developed by Zipper Interactive, MAG (Massive Action Game – please change the title, please!) is a first as it allows 256 players to be involved in a single conflict, sub-divided into squads of eight.

In each squad you have a captain and below that you have various classes (medic, demolition, commandos) that you can be and gain experience with in order to increase your rank and your standing. While only a pre-rendered trailer was shown (getting sick of these), one with a level head could safely assume that gameplay wise the title won’t be a world away from the SOCOM series that the developers originally cut their teeth on.

And that’s all pretty much anyone knows at this stage, more as and when.
