It’s awesome to see developers show the love by providing free downloadable content that expands the replay value of a game. Zipper Interactive is taking that initiative next week on March 25th and delivering just that — DLC to extend the enjoyment of its online shooter, MAG.
While we’d normally be head-over-heels for an opportunity at free DLC like Burnout Paradise always provided, this DLC being free is something we actually expected. Considering Sony charged $59.99 for an online only title upon release, it only makes sense that they provide a little extra content to help justify that purchase; and so they have.
On March 25th, the “Trooper Gear Pack” will release free of charge alongside a Double XP gaming marathon within the Shadow War. We’ve included details of the DLC below.
Dubbed the “Trooper Gear Pack,” our first DLC addition to the MAG universe will offer a number of cool goodies for veterans and first timers alike. Out of everything in the pack, the most popular will likely be the oft-requested “Flashbang Grenade” that can be used to confuse, disorient or distract your enemies in a single throw.
Of course, there’s more to the Trooper Gear Pack than Flashbangs. We’ll also be including new special edition Light Machine Guns for each PMC. Raven’s APEX 100SE, SVER’s RTK-74 Vla, and Valor’s Mk 46 Mod 1 weapons will provide both a new look for your favorite LMGs and a number of performance adjustments as well.
The last element of the pack will be two additional uniforms – “Trooper Dark” and “Trooper Light.” Available to all three PMCs, these uniforms are specifically designed for urban and interior combat situations and give you two more aesthetic options to diversify your character with.
So, for you MAG gamers out there. Get ready to promote your faction and go to war because with a Double XP opportunity, even the bad players have a chance to level up pretty quickly.
