Zipper Interactive has announced a massive multiplayer open beta for the PlayStation 3's massive multiplayer shooter MAG.
MAG has gone gold, and all is on course for its January 26 North American release. Now all Zipper Interactive and Sony have to do is make sure the game doesn't explode on launch day, so they're holding an open beta for the game between January 4 and January 10. When they say open, they mean extremely open. If you are in a territory with the PlayStation Network, then you're in. Simply log into the PlayStation Network tomorrow, download the MAG open beta demo, start it up, and wait for it to download upwards of 2.3GB of data. You'll want to do this as early as possible, to make sure you aren't stuck waiting when the 4th rolls around.
Consider it Zipper Interactive's way of saying Merry Christmas, please buy our game next month.
