MAG Getting Free 'Trooper Gear Pack' DLC

MAG, the PS3-exclusive online shooter boasting up to 256 players at a time, plans to drop some free gear on its players starting Thursday, March 25. On their blog developer Zipper Interactive announced the "Trooper Gear Pack" which will be the first downloadable add-on for the game.


So, what's in this field resupply? For starters, new special edition light machine guns for each of the game's three private military contractors (PMC's). Raven gets the APEX 100SE; for SVER it's the RTK-74 VLa; and Valor takes the Mk46 Mod 1. Besides offering a new look, these new guns also have their own performance specs. Trooper Gear also includes the addition of flash bang grenades, a staple of tactical shooters useful for stunning an entrenched enemy before making a rush. And, as has become the norm for DLC packs, there's two new uniforms.

To get the party started with the new stuff Zipper also plans to double experience points earned in the game starting that Thursday and running through the weekend until 11:59pm Pacific time Sunday March 28. They offered a friendly reminder to stick with any games you're in to get the bonus, quit early and you won't get the 2x multiplier.
