Also known as Massive Action Game, Zipper Interactive, developers of MAG have promised an online battle arena for 256 players. With each map in current games usually supporting 32 to 64 players, MAG will most definitely be the multiplayer game of the year. The idea of having 128 players on each side of the battlefield brings much hype and excitement and with a release date as early as 26th January 2010, everyone should clamor for the game upon its release and have a full year of multiplayer goodness ahead.
A survival horror FPS video game based in an underwater city, BioShock 2 will build upon its predecessor and include a multiplayer mode in the sequel of the game, set to release in the first quarter of 2010.
