New Zealand gamers can get their hands on Sony’s upcoming massively multiplayer FPS exclusive Massive Action Game (MAG) from February 11th.
The game supports online multiplayer for up to 256 players simultaneously in one game session – a first for a console game.
“This challenges all elements of the online environment to deliver a responsive and quality experience for players. With 256 players all accessing a game server at the same time every component of the infrastructure from the server to the database and particularly the network must perform optimally to ensure there are no bottlenecks,” said Alon Isaacs, Director of Online Services, SCE Australia & New Zealand.
“Like Killzone 2, the global server set will include MAG servers based in Australia demonstrating Sony Computer Entertainments commitment to do everything it can to ensure that consumers will get an optimal experience when playing this ground breaking title online.”
