First MAG Gameplay Trailer Shows 256 Player Action

.html Zipper Interactive's ambitious Massive Action Game may not be as visually impressive as, say Killzone 2 or Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, but give 'em a break. They're dealing with 256 players at a time.

While the PlayStation 3 game's first gameplay trailer may not show all 256 combatants on-screen at once, cumulatively we'd wager they make that number, if not exceed it. If you're a fan of the SOCOM series or want a big, big Battlefield-style experience, I'm guessing MAG will already be in your sights.

If not, see if the PS3 exclusive's first real-time game footage and its promises of "unrivaled action" floats your boat.

Wow. I can't wait for this. Generic? I'm not really sure how anyone would say that. What other game has 256 players? Forced squads that reward you for staying in the squad? A leadership ladder that culminates in an overall leader setting goals on the fly while having a birds eye view? In other words a true strategic FPS built to be played that way that encompasses a huge battlefield from macro to micro that involves real people not AI bots? It's a RTS mixed with a FPS with real players.

All the hands ons on other sites were glowing. They had 100 players, zero lag and a solid 30 fps. And zipper said they have been playing 256 players with no problem since last year.

I, for one, am stoked.
