MAG v2.10

Post by Sabby on Tue Dec 07, 2010 12:05 pm

It’s the season of giving and we’ve decided to get into the holiday spirit by releasing our latest downloadable MAG patch starting tomorrow, December 7! What’s great about this particular update, though, is that in addition to fixing a number of existing issues and bugs, it also adds a number of cool new features.

The most exciting addition, of course, is our new “Multiqueue” feature. A replacement for our “Directives” deploy option, Multiqueue gives players the opportunity to queue up for any or all game modes simultaneously. This allows users to jump into the action quickly without forcing them into gametypes they don’t want to play. All you have to do is uncheck the modes you’re not interested in playing and the Multiqueue will take care of the rest. As an added bonus, we’ve also equipped the Multiqueue with a stackable XP reward that grows in its payout depending on how many modes you’re willing to play! In short, we think you’re going to like Multiqueue quite a bit.

Another feature we’re happy to introduce is one that our fans have been asking about for quite some time — the ability to take your own 720p in-game screenshots! To do it, simply bring up the PlayStation 3 XMB, move to the “Photo” section, and find the command to capture screenshots within. Once a screenshot has been taken, you can then find them just as easily in the same photo section. Good stuff!

For our complete list of changes in MAG v2.10, check out the notes highlighted below. As always, the patch will be available tomorrow morning during our regularly-scheduled maintenance period, which begins at 1am Pacific Time. Log into MAG directly for additional information, including maintenance times specific to your region. Enjoy the patch!
