MAG free to PS Plus subs from tomorrow

Play the entire game without paying a penny

Zipper will kick off an interesting demo model tomorrow, by letting PlayStation Plus subscribers download and play its 256-player online shooter, MAG, for free.

As of tomorrow MAG will be available as a digital download for $29.99 directly through the PS Store. This version comes with all the content added via patches right up to version 2.10 (and there's plenty of it).


But what's more interesting is that PS Plus subs will be able to sample its chaotic delights by downloading and playing the entire game, for free, for as long as they have a PS Plus account.

The catch is the level cap will top out at level 8 until you choose to hand over the cash. You will, however, continue to earn experience points during your trial, which come into effect once you purchase the game.

We like this idea.
