    A thread for a game ... no one saw coming. (And, actually gets more exciting the more we learn about it).

    -Zipper Developed (Confrontation was by the dev of the PSP games).
    -32 player 3rd Person shooter, heavy focus on MP with previous installments involving various forms of vehicular combat.
    -Think: Hardcore 3rd person take on the battlefield franchise.
    -Making the series more n00b friendly ... hello autoaim (speculative).
    -4 player co-op campaign mode teased (tbc).

    MAG unaffected, Socom 4 has been in production for several years, Zipper is big enough to support both games.

    /At least Jagger will be pleased by this announcement.

    The lowdown, screens, info, developer comments: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2010/03/socom-4-its-official/
    IGN Preview: http://uk.ps3.ign.com/articles/107/1074103p2.html

    -14 Campaign missions, 12 hour length.
    -New Command mode (hand out orders).
    -Destructible environments.
    -Online info incoming ...

    Fall 2010.

    I've never played a SOCOM game before. Are they generally considered to be good/bad?

    Meh.

    They were ok when the PS2 didn't have anything else, but whether the series can hold its own now the PS3 catalogue has PC/360 games, is another matter entirely, though I'm sure Confrontation fans will claim otherwise.

    I liked the Tactical Ops one for PSP, rough around the edges and with quirky controls and presentation flaws, but hey it was a portable Spectrum Warrior. I personally would much rather see a new one made in HD for PSN.

    Hey look, a post from me from another thread!

    Well it's Zipper again, so I'm quite excited about it. Hopefully it'll have a full single player campaign this time, I really don't get on with third person tactical shooters online.

    I'd also quite like to see the Mercs vs Terrorist Hunters ditched, so I can just make my own character and use him all the time. Like Ghost Recon.

    Don't do that! I want a single player SOCOM game that doesn't suck, especially after the PSP one disappointed me with the worst controls in anything ever.

    Well, apparently they're making it "more friendly"... so expect CoD, in third person.

    (On topic, I've not really got anything against SOCOM. I just think it's average, and I'm disappointed to see another shooter announced.)

    I've only ever played the beta of Confrontation, which was utter shite. More friendly, or 3rd person COD sounds like a very good idea tbh (as long as that doesn't mean n00b tubes and cheap spawn deaths).

    Maybe they're saving the non-shooty announcements for E3.

    Confrontation didn't seem too bad the couple of times the beta actually worked, I couldn't see myself going back for more no matter how much of an improvement it was though. Just those two games was more load mouthed, obnoxious American than I'd ever want or need.

    I'm genuinely surprised by your reaction. Never saw that post coming. Never in a million forums.

    OMG OMG OMG OMG!!!

    Ever since I started playing SOCOM I never really fully enjoyed any other multiplayer shooter, I NEED this.

    SOCOM series is by far the best playstation shooter ever made IMO. If you die then that's it for you, no hiding and healing bullcrap.

    It also promotes teamworkwork like no other console shooter, on SC:confrontation I really enjoy calling people out, oraganising a successful rush, flank etc.

    They are just going to re-skin Mag aren't they.
  • Deleted user 4 March 2010 21:12:25
    MAG won't be affected by this ... apparently they have seperate teams at the studio for each project.
  • Deleted user 4 March 2010 21:24:19
    Just read the IGN preview, maybe I was a bit harsh on this games announcement. Seems actually quite exciting, they're taking the DICE approach: Make that Single player solid and package it along with what they do best, MP.
  • Deleted user 4 March 2010 21:28:38
    I think you're awesome.

    Hopefully it won't be just Mag 1.5. This could be special.

    Given it's release date I'd say it's certainly going to have a hell of a lot in common with MAG.

    I was thinking more along the lines of the technology.
  • Deleted user 4 March 2010 21:52:46
    I've never played a Socom game, but if it's the guys who made MAG then I'll give it a look.

    Those screens actually look really good. I'll interested if there's a decent single player game in there.

    I am stunned at the amount of people (not here) assuming this now means MAG is dead, since when could a development team only handle one game at a time? I had no idea all past Valve games collapsed when L4D2 came out.

    Well it certainly looks to be running on the same engine, but there was nothing wrong with the way MAG handled so that shouldn't really be an issue. The smaller scale of the environments and player count should also allow for increased detail.
