First MAG screenshots!
It looks pretty good.
Holy sweet awesome sauce batman. I think it's cool too =D
FPS instead of Zippers classic choice of Third Person? That really surprises me. Unlike most Socom fan's I'm completely faithful that they'll deliver with M.A.G. Can't wait to see more info. So far the screens and even the art work look good. I think the most underappreciated feature in Zippers past games were map layouts. The level design was perfect, even in the Socom 3/CA maps we hated. Hopefully we get more info before E3
with hardly any comprise in visual quality. MAG FTMFW!
Looking good so far. Don't forget that the game's going to have 256 players online!
I would expect this game to be focusing on gameplay more then GFX, but it seems they are doing a great job on both sides which has impressed me. I am still very curious to how this 256 players will be achieved, I will be picking the game up to see how they have done it. gj Socom team.
The concept of 256 players is great, as someone else pointed out, the level design and objective based gameplay will have to be top-notch to sustain those types of numbers (which I'm sure it will be).
Only possible on the PS3. Left and right, we have PS3 games breaking technical boundaries never before seen on consoles. Can't say the same for the primitive machine also known as the Xbox 360. Owning a 360 is useless at this point.
but I honestly didn't expect the game to look this good. Online games usually take a hit in terms of graphics. MAG looks really polished, especially considering the 256 players that are going to be running around blowing sh*t up all over the place. Verdict = buy!!!
Ugh FPS? Damnit! I am tired of FPS's. Also I wonder if these are early screenshots as they still need some polishing done to it. The smoke and fire screen looks cool. TGSI
Hate to be negative but the maps look too damn crowded. The maps in Battlefield 2 and Battlefield 2142 look much bigger and those games "only" accomodate 64 players. I hope the 256 player maps are much bigger with vehicles. Vehicles are a must. I don't want to walk everwhere. ps- great find. thanks for posting.
This reminds me of warhawk just unscaled in size.
@killax - yeh but the annoying thing about warhawk is that it takes forever to find someone to kill cos the maps are too big. I guess these guys are taking lessons from that
it looks like a source mod. graphics aren't top notch, but still solid looking.
this is the true Soccom sequel, and its looking damn good.
PS3 CAN DO MUCH BETTER THAN THIS!
Is this gonna be an FPS? I was hoping it would be TPS, I was really looking forward to this game, but if it turns out to be an FPS I most probably wont buy it. Seriously, enough with the FPS's.
Looks like Battlefield on sterioids and crack. There a cool futuristic look to some of the soldiers! I am really excited for this game! I hope they change the name though. MAG? I can already hear fanboys snickering.
anyways, whatr does mag stand for? MARINe AIR GROUND ? anyone know? glossy bubble for you if you tell me
Mothers Against Gaming..
Stands for Massive Action Game. Anyway who says this isn't third person? Maybe it's both, like Socom? Only this time you can see the gun in first person.
Do not want. No more FPS's for me. If it was third person i'd be cool with it.
lol 1.20 & 1.21 +bubbles
@1.9 Yeah, it does look a bit crowded. But damn, that looks amazing. I can't wait to parachute into a hot battlefield! Really hope tanks and vehicles will be drivable. I saw them in the pictures, but no one was driving them!
I think the graphics are pretty impressive and with the makers of Socom behind it I am sure it will be awesome.
@Mainman - I'm guessing it's both. @Exclusivegamer - M.A.G. = Massive Action Game
I am personally more excited for this game then any other.
Don't worry about gameplay.. it's Zipper. After MAG releases I hope they take a look at Confrontation and make it less crappy :D
What the hell is up with the laser like bullet trails. That to me ruins how beautiful the rest of the scenery looks. Seriously look at the screens again an tell me the bullet trails don't look like lasers. Other than that, this game looks great and am looking forward to it. Hopefully there is a demo first.
Frag, it seems to be an alpha build. I'll buy this and put my killzone 2 to rest, ONLY if it supports a keyboard and mouse (and of course if the game mechanics are top notch). Until then, we'll have to wait and see. Yesterday I put my Counter-Strike to rest after 9 years of playing it. R.I.P. (reason: my video card got fried, not gonna buy another card til SC2 comes out).
Nice graphics, not amazing, but considering that this game is supposedly LOTS of players on the same map at once that changes everything. I like the character models. I used to play a fps called joint operations on the pc which had 150 person multiplayer, it had its glitches but overall was an amazing game, the scale just felt so epic, I hope mag can do something similar.
For 250 players, it looks good enough. It definitely needs a better name, though.
I'm Panamanian and they're making a level in Panama. That's G
Genial! Espero que sea bueno! Saludos
After careful consideration I've decided that these are just project renderings and not actual screen shots.
oh god... here we go again with "killzone 2 like it's not the real game" arguments
They are in-game.
CGI/ target renders do not have jaggies. In any event, the game looks really good. I imagine it will have dedicated servers and thus play just as well to boot. Troll harder next time.
Take your stupid fanboy comments somewhere else. Go to joystiq, they love a$$-hats like you.
I'm guessing this game will own Battlefield with the online but what u guys think?
Yes i'm sure since these guys have had a franchise since 2002 with such diverse periods like vietnam, WWII, Future 2142, present Battlefield2, consoles games like BF:MC and BF:BC /sarc
I think sak500 should stfu since all that jealousy is making my screen go green.
It'll be hard to trounce a big franchise like Battlefield, but hey, you never know.
How do diverse time periods make better games?
I don't think it'll be a Battlefield killer if that is what you're implying. El Alamein in BF1942 with massive air battles overhead and massive tank battles on the ground is hard to beat. Not to mention the intense urban, jungle, and air fighting in BF Vietnam.
Theoreticly, more players on the battlefiled = More realistic battle scenarios. But this theory can also go out the MF windown concidering that this is a game and some/most people will be playing it like thier the terminator and don't give a rats a** about teamwork. So lets see how zipper can overcome the clusterF**k that 256 players can end up in without proper gameplay mechanics.
Am I the only one who thinks these look aweful? First of all, if MAG is a FPS then that is a no buy for me. I am sick of FPS games. I was hoping for more of a Socom feel. But these screens do not look that great at all.
What you said is the reason all the gamers in here are spewing their forced praise.
I really hope it'll stay first person. And round based like CS. If you die, you die until next round. Would be awesome. Edit: Merceles. True, however, those type of games are always time based, so you'll survive :P.
With it being a 256 player game, I hope it's not like that because we'll have 100 campers lurking around lol edit: that's true too lol...it should be good, it's made by the original devs of SOCOM...you know, the ones that SHOULD'VE made SOCOM Confrontation *shakes head in shame at Slant Six, thumbs up for Zipper*
Heheh yeah, that's why Im so pumped up for this game, since it's made by zipper. I actually never bought any Socom game. Online is really not my cup of tea. However, I have heard lots of good things about Socom so I'm ready to give this a shot.
SOCOM was the poster child for the PS2s online service and my God it was awesome. It was never as big as Halo, but I'm fairly certain the fanbase was just as dedicated, maybe more so.
Didn't expect the game to have thoose kind of graphics, even at this stage :) Although i would like to know why they'd stick to FPS rather than TPS.
We really don't know what stage it's currently in to begin with. Awesome regardless.
No I hate that if I die I don't want to spend my time watching a massive battle I would much rather fight in it just have a style like Project Reality if you guys have played it where if you keep dying the respawn timer gets pushed back.
over 256 players online for sure it will kick battlefields ass, and no lag at all thats very impressive i dont know how they pulled that off But after all it is a Massive Action Game ;)
True, we need to see some gameplay, but im sure the gameplay will be solid...
Looks great, much better than I expected from a game on such a huge scale.
I believe,this game is gonna rock!
in ur face pp this game looks amazing i think its safe to say battlefield and call of duty will be in a bit of trouble when this game comes 256 plays online alone no lag well name a xbox game that can do that ? not a chance huxley where?>
...even if it had Banjo in the game running around with a Gun, he still wouldn't like it!!! ;-D He has been brain washed by Mart/Pog/Jason 360 etc etc and their Worthless internet Stats etc etc...SO SAD...it is...
all I keep hearing is people saying that killzone 2 could be done on 360 and their is nothing on it to prove it. Now if people think this game could be done on 360 all I gotta say is prove it! and BTW i will be so happy if MAG is a FPS like one of the pictures show.
It looks ok. I do like how the barrel is one with the median. http://www.flickr.com/photo... LOL.
No crap, Imagine getting in a game with 256 people you wont have the chance to kill anyone ull be shot in a sec lol.
That's where level design comes into play. Throw in different objectives for different squads located in different parts of the map. It should be fine. Just once though, I want to try getting 256 players together for a knife fight :)
lets see how it turns out.
