226w ago - Zipper Interactive Sr. Community Manager Jeremy Dunham has revealed that a free MAG PS3 DLC Fast Attack Pack will arrive on April 29, 2010.

To quote: Mark April 29 on your calendars now, because it's the day you're going to see our next 100% Free MAG DLC add-on! Known as the "Fast Attack" Gear Pack, our latest downloadable extra will likely cause marksmen to swoon.

Why? Two big reasons. First, we're adding three brand new Special Edition Sniper Rifles (Raven's HM 90 SE, SVER's SASR M, and Valor's MK 14 Mod 1 EBR) that include a number of performance adjustments and visual variations to our already-popular long-range weapons.

Second, you can expect to get your hands on a collection of new armor types! All three factions can now choose to equip Improved Light Armor in their loadouts for the bargain price of just 400 in-game credits.

Oh, and did we mention that the "Fast Attack" Gear Pack is free? Yes, we did, but we're saying it again anyway. Look for it to appear in the PlayStation Store the afternoon of April 29, alongside all other scheduled PSN updates.
