E3 2009 – MAG Live Demo With 256 Players


By Chris Scott Barr

MAG is one of those titles that many people have been waiting to see more of. Imagine playing a FPS with 255 other people at the same time. I’ll admit to being a bit skeptical on the gameplay when it was announced, but check out the gameplay footage from the show. Each and every person you see, every single shot fired is from a real live person playing against the 8 guys that were demoing it at the conference.

    I used to play Planetside back in the day, and they ran 500 players(up to 200 per faction) battles over a huge landmass and multiple installations. What they are talking about here isn't that impressive.

    That said I don't play it anymore because SOE runs thier games like they are putting them in a juicer (no bug fixes, no hack fixes, shoddy server maintenance) . This even at its smaller scale looks like it might be a resonable replacement.
