195w ago - Zipper Interactive's Sr. Community Manager Jeremy Dunham has announced that the first MAG PS3 DLC dubbed 'Trooper Gear Pack' will be free and is coming next week!
To quote: On behalf of everyone here at Zipper Interactive, I'm pleased to announce that beginning March 25, our first official MAG downloadable add-on will be made available to players worldwide absolutely free of charge!
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.
The best part of the Trooper Gear Pack? It's just the beginning of our ongoing commitment to MAG. In the coming months, you can expect to see plenty of other add-ons and goodies that we can't quite tell you about yet (but know you'll enjoy).
But that's not all. To commemorate the release of our DLC, we want to throw in a little extra. And so, as a thank you to all of our fans, we're offering Double XP to any and all MAG players starting March 25. Simply log in at 12am Pacific/ 3am Eastern/ 8am GMT and play MAG as you normally would.
Every time you complete a game your experience doubles, and yes, this bonus stacks for Veterans who already have an XP bonus to begin with! Just make sure you actually complete the games you play - if you quit early, your bonus won't apply.
Expect the Double XP promotion to run until 11:59pm Pacific time on Sunday, March 28. Be sure to take advantage of it as much as you possibly can until then.
