Met 256 man online gamen, dat was de ‘sales-pitch’ van Zipper Interactive toen ze MAG aankondigen op de E3 van bijna twee jaar geleden, echter deed de game het niet zo goed in de verkopen. M.A.G. was op zichzelf een leuke titel maar bood te weinig vernieuwing en deed al snel aan als weer zo’n standaard shooter. Zipper Interactive laat alleen wel zien dat ze hun producten graag, alweer een jaar na de launch, blijven ondersteunen. Vandaag hebben ze namelijk een patch online gezet voor hun shooter, de changelog hiervan vind je hieronder.

Gameplay (General)
• Permanently added faction-neutrality to “Domination” and “Acquisition” game modes
• Improved ratio of launched game-types when using Multiqueue
• Fixed “Escalation” game-type exploit that allowed unintended amounts of additional game points to be earned under certain conditions
• The original three training missions unique to Raven, SVER and Valor have been reinstated (Blu-ray version only)
• Lessened the likelihood of players moving their aim while performing the “knifing” action with the PlayStation Move Motion Controller

Gameplay (Economy)
• Earned CP now takes “Bonus” XP into account as part of its equation
• Adjusted CP/ XP conversation rate so that lower-level players have the highest yield of CP-earned to XP-gained, with a lessening effect as they gain levels
•CP is now refunded when a player has gear they are no longer entitled to removed from their loadout

• Repaired “stuck grenade” bug that would sometimes prevent players from throwing grenades
• Slightly increased grenade-throwing speed following weapon-switch (all grenade types)

• Repaired icon display issue in “Escalation” game-type that would occasionally misrepresent which team was interacting with an objective
• Post-game Squad scoreboard no longer includes bonus XP in its display or rankings
• All three factions are now properly displayed for the “Escalation” game-type when using the Multiqueue

Audio/ Visual
• Grenade-throwing animations are now properly blended and no longer skip
• Various camera clipping issues have been addressed

• Subscription character slots B and C are now fully compatible with the downloadable version of MAG
• Eliminated glitch that prevented players from earning the “Duteous Maximus” trophy after the 2.10 update
• Fixed bug that prevented some players from being vote-kicked out of games
• Faction-specific videos have been restored (Blu-ray version only)
• Numerous crash fixes and performance improvements
• Multiple localization updates
