This is the third or fourth time that many of us have seen an announcement of a MAG beta; however, this one is different, this is the first beta session that is open to all PlayStation 3 owners. Starting today, MAG will be playable in both the 64-player Sabotage mode as well as the 256-player Domination mode.
I would advise to download this before you go to work, because the download file is 1.8GB (2.3GB, depending on region), and unless you have FIOS (like me) this will take a long time.
The beta is open from today until January 10, so if you couldn’t get into any other phase of the beta, take advantage of this.
Here is a few steps on how to get the beta client:
1. Log on to the PlayStation Store, Select “View All By Title -> M Titles -> MAG” and download the MAG Beta file like you would any other freely-available PSN video or demo (298 MB)
2. Launch the MAG Beta program from your XMB to download a special patch that will restart MAG once the update has been received (another 37 MB)
3. After the reboot, the Beta will reconnect and download the actual game data so that you can play (1.8 GB – 2.3 GB depending on your region)
