Massive online multiplayer shooter MAG is but a few days away, so insane 256-player Domination battles are getting very close indeed.

To celebrate the impending release of Zipper Interactive's quite literally titled Massive Action Game, we've got the launch trailer for you to check out.

Before you do that though, Zipper are keen to stress how much an improvement the full game is over the Beta version, beyond the obvious extra modes and maps.

The frame rate and graphics have been optimised with lovely new lighting effects and so on. You can also knife an enemy while you're reloading and the overall effectiveness of weapons and armour has been increased.

You can take a look at the complete list of tweaks and improvements on the MAG blog.

Right back to the trailer bit. No night vision goggles are required to watch, but don't let that stop you from wearing them anyway. In fact, why not muddy up your face a bit and bark random orders to your closest relative or friend? Get yourself in the mood.

I think I'm gonna miss this as when I played the open beta I couldn't play the actually game as it kept suffering from connection problems, an entire game online when the connection isn't good dosen't sound like a good idea to me.

I didn't really enjoy the beta, so I'm going to pass on this one.

I played the open beta and wasn't too impressed. For all their gloating about 256 players online, you really only follow the same group of eight and fight against the same group of 8. It's like having any other shooter really only in this one no matter how good you/your squad did you could still lose miserably. I don't know about all of you but I'll keep my expectations low, maybe then it'll surprise me and be worth a rent.

too much updating. Beta felt like a fps of socom. Pretty much everyone has abused SVER faction and game isn't all that spectacular they didn't bother to add any new weapons to the full version. Game will probably get the Socom treatment sooner or later. Plus it had those socom-esque trophies long and challenging. Saving to get Aliens vs. Predator!
