"There's mayhem on the battlefield. Zipper Interactive has just thrown another batch of green recruits into a 128-player session of their upcoming supersized first-person shooter, MAG, and all hell has broken loose. We pour in from the edge of a huge map, coming out of lightly forested hills into a dense military-industrial complex peppered with bunkers, antiaircraft guns, and 64 enemy combatants.
Our goal is ostensibly to infiltrate the enemy base, steal a pair of heavy-duty vehicle prototypes, and get the hell out of Dodge. But most of us are too busy trying to get a sense of the sheer size of the environment we're fighting in to pay much attention to mission objectives right now."
