198w ago - Today Jeremy Dunham has announced that MAG PS3 patch update v1.03 arrives tomorrow and includes fixes among other changes.
To quote: We've listened to your feedback and watched you play our game for weeks to create what is, without a doubt, our biggest and most important patch yet.
Our amendments are dramatic and they are many and we're confident that they make the game even better than it already was. Not only have we revamped the effectiveness of every weapon in the arsenal and tuned our ranged firing to be more realistic, but we've also sped up the weapon and gear swapping process, closed off exploits that gave some teams unfair advantages on certain maps, and have made it more obvious when it's too late to stop a charge from blowing up.
But those changes aren't even the half of it, as you'll see by checking our patch notes below. The best news, though, is that you'll be able to download this patch starting tomorrow at 1am Pacific/ 4am Eastern/ 9am GMT, February 25. Simply log-on to MAG when the time is right and the update will be ready for download.
We hope you enjoy the new changes – have fun and see you on the battlefield!
Available February 25, 2010 - 41MB (TPPS), 49MB (DLS)
201w ago - Today Jeremy Dunham has announced that MAG PS3 patch update v1.01a will arrive tomorrow and fix bugs along with some server-side changes.
To quote: We hope you're enjoying your MAG experience so far and welcome your continued feedback regarding what you like, what you love, and what you think could use some improvements.
With that in mind, we'll be implementing a tiny little patch (300KB) early tomorrow morning that will automatically download as soon as you start the game.
This particular patch mends an issue with our skies that should give you slightly better visual fidelity when you're looking upward.
Before the patch is available, however, we will be performing a number of maintenance fixes on the server-side as well - which means there will be downtime sometime during our usual window of 1am Pacific/ 4am Eastern/ 9am GMT and 3am Pacific/ 6am Eastern/ 11pm GMT.

• Resolved issue that caused banding and/or artifacts in the sky.
