MAG to offer “deeper” multiplayer than CoD
"Call of Duty is a great franchise, and we expect them to continue to make great shooters," Zipper Interactive's Tony Iuppa told us. "What really sets MAG apart from COD and other shooters on the market, however, is our multiplayer focus."
"MAG is 100% multiplayer and has been since day one," he added. "This has let us spend all of our development resources on creating a deeper MP experience, which supports tight shooter gameplay seen in games like COD, but that’s just the foundation of our offering."
Iuppa went on to say that MAG's variety and multiplayer focus will offer an experience that is unique across all consoles.
"The amount of gameplay variety in MAG, the depth of our skills and gear, the Shadow War (the ongoing tournaments between factions), and strong community tools all create an extremely rich MP environment, one we believe is truly unique on the consoles," he said.
