Speaking on the Official EU blog, Sony have just announced that Zipper Interactive (the guys responsible for bringing you MAG) are working on a brand new Socom game, and one that you won’t recognise. Now while the fundementialities of the Socom game remain -team work, authenticity and innovative online play – this new Socom game is being created from the ground up for PlayStation 3.
Here’s the story of the game;:
In South East Asia, a revolutionary army has seized control of a country bordering one of the world’s most vital waterways; threatening to disrupt he global economy.
Your mission is to step into the well-worn boots of the Ops Com, a NATO Operations Commander of an elite, five-man squad. You must venture deep into inhospitable jungles, city streets and crumbling urban ruins to engage an army of rebel fighters and discover their plans. Although you’re vastly outnumbered, you’re armed with the latest weaponry and your men are second to none – but do you possess the stealth, speed and tactical thinking to lead them to victory? Time is not on your side: you have just six days to complete your mission. To emerge victorious, you must lead from the front, maintain control of the situation and fight with sheer intensity.
In addition to the gripping new single-player story mode, you’ll find all of the different ways to play that you’d expect from a SOCOM title. Online, you’ll be able to do battle with other teams in matches for up to 32 players – and you can choose to play in the guise of more world-famous Special Forces units than ever before. And – as it’s SOCOM – the realism of the experience will be second to none. As always, teamwork will carry the day.
Is this new Socom game something you’d be interested in? There will also be the first ever trailer for the game released today so stay tuned for more later…
