MAG to unload in January

Giant multiplayer PS3 game draws nearer.

Sony America plans to unload MAG on North Americans from 26th January. Europe, however, has "no confirmed date as of yet", a spokesperson for SCEE told Eurogamer this morning.

PS3 exclusive MAG - Massive Action Game - allows a whopping 256 people to fight online at the same time. The game does this by breaking the action into squads of eight, which communicate and co-ordinate with a larger force. This helps promote team work and a more intimate dynamic.

As you become more experienced your rank will rise, and you'll be promoted to a position of command either over one squad, multiple squads or the entire force.

The full MAG E3 trailer can be seen over on the US PlayStation blog.
