MAG : Le gros patch 2.0

MAG est l'un de seuls FPS console aussi bien soutenu
Aussi surprenant que cela puisse paraitre pour un jeu console, Zipper Interactive continue de supporter MAG plus de sept mois après sa sortie et le jeu passe aujourd'hui en version 2.0. Cette nouvelle version pèse 532 Mo et peut se télécharger dès à présent sur le PSN. La liste des changements est conséquente et touche a à peu près tous les éléments du gameplay avec l'augmentation à 70 du niveau atteignable par les joueurs (contre 60 précédemment), l'augmentation de 15% des dommages de nombreuses armes automatiques, l'augmentation des dommages des mines anti-tank etc. Cette version 2.0 apporte également de nombreux nouveaux Skills qui peuvent être échangés contre des points gagnés en jeu.

Plus anecdotique, ce patch apporte le support du PlayStation Move. On se demande bien qui pourrait s'infliger un malus dans un FPS uniquement multijoueurs.

La liste complète des changements se trouve dans la suite de la nouvelle.
