"Escalation," the three-way battle among all the factions of MAG, is available now on the PlayStation Network and comes at a discount for those who bought the previous DLC installment, "Interdiction" before Oct. 28.

Escalation is $9.99 to all, but $7.99 if you picked up Interdiction - again, before Oct. 28. The pack delivers three new maps pitting Raven, SVER and Valor all against each other. It also packs in nine new weapons. If you're a PlayStation Plus member, it's $7.99 no matter what until Dec. 14.

Sony's incentivizing early adoption by laying a 200 percent XP bonus on every finished match played in either DLC extension between now and Nov. 14 (a Sunday). Any MAG mode played in the same span gets a 100 percent XP bonus.

Interdiction, by the way, permanently drops to $4.99 from its original $9.99 price. There's also a MAG Starter kit for those with heartier appetites; it includes both DLC packs, 30 day trials for the B and C character slots, plus six avatars and three dynamic PS3 themes.
