MAG Recruitment Videos

Check out three new trailers talking about each of the factions in MAG.

One of the neat things about MAG--aside from, you know, 256 player matches--is the persistent "Shadow War" among the game's three factions. Once you join Raven, Valor, or SVER, you'll basically become part of an ongoing battle among those mercenary corporations. It's a system that keeps track of not only your own progress and stats over the long haul, but also the entire team you're playing for.

So which side is the one for you? Sony is looking to help make that decision a little easier with a new MAG hub on its PlayStation Facebook page that details the different traits of each faction. Before that rolls out, Sony sent over some video showing what each of the three factions has to offer in a series of recruitment videos that will later go up on the Facebook page. Check them out below:

I don't know, the concept of MAG sounds really epic, but from what I've seen from these trailers, the gameplay looks kind of unpolished... I'm gonna wait for some reviews to come out before picking this one up.

"Yet you resist!" Fighting for a cause is always better than for a "48 hour delivery corporation" SVER ALL THE WAY BABY!! JOIN THE BATTLE, JOIN THE CAUSE, JOIN.....SVER!!!!

i've played the beta and its awsome! can't wait no longer to get my hands on this game again! MW2 was a big disapointment to me. Not to speak on his sh**ty server... M.A.G. makes you feel like you're in a battlefield just like Killzone 2 did. S.V.E.R. Kick A**!!

Tried since the start of the free open beta. At the beginning I was not so well impressed from the game, but going on and unlocking abilities and the 128 vs 128 map (it unlock at level 10) I started to like the game. After you choose a role and start to follow it you will get a lot of fun. No lag at all, nice very big maps with multiple objective (so no everyone on the same target ) a lot of upgrades to buy with skill points and a lot more. Probably in the future you will need a good clan to be competitive because with so much players coordination is a must, but if you find good players that play for team and not alone you will get a lot of fun from this game

I've been playing the beta version for about a week now, and I must say I'm disapointed. Graphics are ok, they do not bother me at all. My concern is regarding controls, movement and level design. I'm an avid fps player (Delta Force, Soldier of Fortune 2, Call of Duty, Counter Strike, Battlefield, Rainbow Six, so on...) In this game, aiming feels clunky and weapons pack about the same punch as bb guns. As for movement, it has an Unreal Tournament or Quake feel to it, more arcade like, wich may appeal to some but not to me. Level design is also a concern, as some parts of the maps are blocked by invisible walls, for no aparent reason aside funnelling players into choke points. As for the scale, well, it's hard to say since I've been in 64 players matches. 32 vs 32 with this level design meant countless deaths because everyone is running in what I can best describe as corridors, taking away freedom of movement and strategic progression. I'm going to pass, sounded good on paper, can't say it worked out well in my modest opinion

Valor looks like its the most disciplined and organized more like assasins/ninjas, SVER is not organized and it looks like there all over the place there the type that rushes the enemy. Raven is the type for defence they stay back and attack from a distance and fast traveling.

SVER .. Why there isn't much media covering MAG. MAG is coming out in 1month.

Raven is corporate fighters, bought and paid for. looks like advancement more cover with additional heavy artillery support. Valor are soldiers fighting a war. Highly integrated many weapons, tanks, ... SVER is guerrilla warfare. Guns, Grenades, rocket launchers, fast attack vehicles waiting to see if they pull it off. Could be great OR just too many people yelling at each other telling people what to do. I am sure some groups will click together and know how to work well with each other. It will be hard just finding a good group to work with though.

Oh yeah, SVER appeals to the rebel in me. And Valor just sounds boring;of course that's just one look at the trailer. I could be wrong.

This just sounds more and more epic and makes you wonder how nobody else has thought of this idea before but the success can be risky.

@impoler....I'm sorry to be mean dude but what kind of stupid question is that? It's a huge 256 player game that is based around team work...that alone should convince you that there are clans. And yes the clan system is actually very nice. Again I'm sorry to be a dick.

I was leaning on SVER but now im going for raven. I like accurate weapons, especially when its an assualt rifle hahaha i play too much MW2

raven has all the advanced tech and weapons which gives u the biggest advantage on the battlefield. the 2 other factions will probably be more about assault cuz this is all about tactics

Personally I side with raven. Stealth is always fun!

Was really excited for this game, but after trying out the beta, this game has fallen off my radar, and hard. It's dull. No intensity, dull objectives, maps are humongous so reaching point A is eternal, etc. Maybe by adding vehicles to actually control and few other things would make it more exciting, but so far, I'm no longer excited for it. It's a shame.

all three faction seems awesome, but i think Im going with valor because i just watch We Were Soldiers. my only questions will be if all factions will hve their pre-designated weopons and wont be able to change or will they have a the choice. Raven having an AK for example?

Valor all the way.

All of you who are amazed by this game's feature of putting 256 players on one map must have never even heard of Planetside which is 6 years old...seriously all this game has going for it is better graphics...even the factions fit into the same template as Planetside's. Raven = Vanu, SVER = NC, and Valor = TR. Seeing as how it's being published by SCEA, it really is just Planetside 1.9.

oh man please dont fail like endwar somewhat similar concepts (3 factions, american, european, russian) plus persistent stat tracking across a global conflict online granted endwar was strategy and this is AMMOFPS ("A" standing for awesome) I just hope it doesnt crap out like endwar where after about 2 months there was maybe 300 online players. maybe

@gelly-matos, then you must select Raven:P

I think this will be a fail when it comes to faction ratio. it will be 60% Raven, 10% SVER and 30% valor. Now how is that possibly gonna work in an MMO? Its like World of Warcraft. For the first 3 years hardly anybody played Horde (hardly anybody compared to Alliance).

does the game take your Home character and place it into the game? cuz when I started the demo it was automatically a black guy and i was like woah, how did they know? and he did look similar to the guy I created, I think , its been a while since I looked

I don't own a PS3, but if I were to pick one it would be Valor.
