The first batch of downloadable goodies for owners of the PlayStation 3 massively multiplayer shooter MAG will arrive next week, according to Zipper Interactive, bringing fresh outfits, disorienting grenades and all-new guns guns guns! That new stuff is all free.

The "Trooper Gear Pack," coming to players worldwide gratis on March 25, brings with it the aforementioned flashbang grenade, three special edition light machine guns—Raven's APEX 100SE, SVER's RTK-74 Vla, and Valor's Mk 46 Mod 1—as well as two new uniforms "Trooper Dark" and "Trooper Light." The DLC release coincides with a double XP promotion, should you crave twice the experience.

Zipper calls this DLC release "the beginning of our ongoing commitment to MAG," which may be comforting to those of you who feel a little concerned about future support with SOCOM 4 on the horizon.
