A Look at the PMC's of MAG: Valor , Raven and S.V.E.R.

Hey fellas , the guys over at Zipper have released some info on
the PMC's that player's will align themselves with once MAG hits next year.



Basically we have 3 groups.

Valor is your middle of the road, traditional kind of troops that seem to be heavily influenced stylistically by the US Marine Corps.

Raven are the PMC's that are at the cutting edge of technology and are
deliberate in all their actions, showcasing a high level of training behind their
units


S.V.E.R. are a PMC that make use of more improvised methods and have
a more visually intimidating look to themselves, the collective may be
closer to a gang than a well oiled business


A video showcasing the nuances of each group can be seen here

I'm getting more interested as news seeps out

a PMC is a Private Military Company, like the controversial BLACKWATER group

You mean "Xe", they changed names to disassociate themselves with the problems they have had in Iraq, not like people don't know who they are just because they changed name. Great thing too, it took them a year to come up with that two letter name, just imagine the discussions. I would take the high tech PMV though, take advantage of the latest military technology and surprise the enemy. MAG is definitely shaping up to be a great exclusive for the PlayStation 3, might finally make up for the tarnished reputation of SOCOM.

I meant for the people who didn't buy SOCOM, and for Sony themselves to make up for SOCOM, a game to replace and forget SOCOM with as we might actually have a title that doesn't require 8 months and countless patches to get to the current state of SOCOM, it might even bring back old fans of SOCOM, fine it's not a true third person shooter but it will most likely involve the tactics and strategy SOCOM required which is why people played and at the same time bring in new ones as the game is unrelated to SOCOM so the reputation doesn't come with it.

but if it was third person then i could see the relation to SOCOM better but i mean i coudl see how it could use the same kinda strategy and stuff but you still need tactics in the game and you probably need them more than any other SOCOM.

I picked Raven, they just look so badass. I watched the trailer and my god i almost wet myself it looked so amazing. They were walking down the street and guys were just dropping randomly, then the paratroopers....This game is going to be out of this world! I absolutely cannot wait!

Zipper will need a way to even things out, the general look of things on message boards
seems to lean things a bit to much in the raven direction

A PMC is a collective of soldiers for hire under the umbrella of
a single company that license their services for profit.

As far as PMC's of MAG go, check my original post for a brief
description on each

I don't care how much "better" L4D 2's multi-player is, they can go shove it up Gabe Newell's fat ass, plus it's not coming out for the PlayStation 3 anyway, so it doesn't really count for PlayStation 3 gamers as competition, it competes in the 360 and PC markets. M.A.G will definitely be an achievement if they can pull this off and from the new technology they are putting into this game and the power of the PlayStation 3 behind it, I can definitely see it happening.
