Eurogamer has release one gameplay video from SOCOM 4.
Not bad, just add lean and take off the last 2 minutes e-tag pop up in a round on the Classic Mode (I understand that it's to stop campers from just sitting and waiting it out to win or draw the round once time runs out) in the upcoming months and I'm good.
the sound is amazing
it sounds like they have really bad aim and are just hitting metal the whole time, it got annoying after awhile. lol should be a good game !
the sound is real. If you was in a war in the street it's the same thing guns hitting metal and people shouting then an explosion here n there. Reminds me of the news when I see footage of US and British soldiers fighting in Iraq.
WOOOOW STOP POSTING THE SAME DAMN GAMEPLAY OVER AND OVER!!! Anyways, I love Socom. This game could get low scores and I'm still buying it day one. Socom = best gaming community.
Agreed: Play right, or get out of the game lol. It sounds elitist but it makes the games play better
Socom will never be what it was on PS2. Personally for me its too little too late. I expected this franchise to be top priority when the PS3 originally came out, but now we're getting a game that looks just like MAG, which is a let down. The community in Confrontation was full of mouthy idiots who would try to tell you how to play the game when they were always the first ones to die, so I'd probably kill a guy like you at the begining of every round KozmoOchez. Aside from what the game looks like, the maps all look really open just like MAG. I'm just not convinced about this game yet.
It's the absolute worst f*cking community in existence. @KozmoOchez You mean play perfectly, without one single tiny mistake, without having the slightest bit of fun. It's not even about playing for the objective with these guys, it's about pretty much not getting killed more than once or else you get kicked. No thanks. The Socom community are the absolute worst scumbags on the planet. I'd rather play a game with Charlie Manson over those elitist douchebags.
Sold on the first 1:03
MAG all over Again with annoying Sounds. and yah TPS
lol thats how i feel. It looks exactly like when you die in MAG, that small window you get to observe in TPS. But the gameplay is totally diff.
buddy enough with the hate and buy a PS3 already
If you watch the video carefully you can see people leaning out of cover. Not many were though.
Yup, around the begin of the video (1st map) I can see people leaning, chouching and crawling... To the point I don't get what people mean by "lacking stealth gameplay". Can someone please further explain? I'm not saying I'm not worried (health regen, tactical strikes and respawn ranked rooms are my concern so far) but gameplay/shooting mechanics wise it looks ok for the most part (would have to test cover system before saying for sure), the only stealth element I don't see there is suppressed guns (haven't noticed any in video) but I'm quite sure weapon customization will be there... It just looks like guys on this video play like crazy kids running around and shooting all the time (listen to the continuous metal hitting noise LOL). Worth mentioning I started playing SOCOM online on PS3's Confrontation (on PS2 I played single player only) so it's quite possible I'm missing something that is also missing in last SOCOM.
i think they will add the features little by little. ps. off topic estoy buscando para my clan de socom 4 solo hablamos espanhol en el si buscas clan para socom 4 agregame en psn. arakouftaian
@ killcycle LMAO! The 1st Socom game I played was the last one on the PS3. I remember it because I had these really good Sony Headphones on I was looking at my controller (Noob) to see where the buttons were, and someone from my team shot an AT4 off right next to me and it hit the wall. I flashed back to Iraq for a second. My heart was racing like crazy. I'm sure this game is going to have realistic sounds as well.
This game is going to be boss as far as multiplayer goes. I have a feeling this could be the best multiplayer game of the year. Zipper knows what they're doing. This may be too hardcore though for some but the Socom community is LOYAL and this is their game.
I am certain the multiplayer will be great....the single player campaign looks very impressive. The video here just shows a few different maps with fire-fights basically....will be nice to see some player-view vids of multiplayer with actual objectives. Zipper knows their stuff and this game will be excellent. So tired of CoD and the like. It's time for Socom to get back into the game.
Keep in mind that i prefer my PS3 over my xbox but I think Socom 4 could look a lot better considering it’s a PS3 exclusive. I know I’m going to get blasted for saying that, but it’s the truth so let the disagrees come I don’t give a f*ck
looks okay,not really alot of hype for this game
Not alot of hype and its going to turn out to be the most supported MP out of all the games coming out.
Damn this looks awesome
This one could be a huge sleeper hit this year.
must be new to socom to say something stupid like that.
Sorry, I'm not. Honestly, compared to other games coming out this year, SOCOM 4 isn't even on the radar. I played SOCOM 2 and loved it, skipped 3 and Confrontation, and now I'm excited for SOCOM 4.
Socom is never a sleeper, only the diehard, hardcore, elite gamers play Socom. Those that always die early stop playing and go on Call of Duty or Medal of Honor. Socom=For the best out there.
you guys should know that the gameplay is really fun and hardcore . a must buy game, plus 5 players co op will make this game fun from any angle
Zipper know how to make a game. MAG was great (even though hated on by people who never played it) and Socom 4 looks to be outstanding.
agreed! dat one purchase for me :) Although i can't help but think how much better confrontation would have been from the start if zipper made it, ahwells heres zippers time to shine xD
Looks like MAG actually with smoother graphics. Then again Zipper did say MAG was initially a Socom game. The video looks like Sver vs Valor. I didnt see any stealth mechanics though which is what i enjoyed greatly in Socom. It looks heavily influenced by MAG.
What about people who did play it but didnt like it?
You figure it out. I'm playing MAG.
i loled at the death animation at 4:01
With this being the first "true" next gen Socom, I have no doubt this will deliver. The fact Zipper can pull off lag free 256 player multiplayer should transition really well into the much smaller Socom player count. Gameplay looks ace as well. I'm looking forward to the beta coming with Killzone 3 ^.^
I'm getting the game is looking great so far u guys are down for some 5 player co op add my psn account is elflako25
Heres some HD video (youtube link from a couple days ago) with night gameplay, etc. in there as well. http://www.youtube.com/watc... If I buy any non-scifi miliarty shooter in 2011 it will be SOCOM 4. MAYBE Battlefield 3 too when that comes out. Anyone know approximately what time the Killzone 3 Beta will start here in the US? I can't wait to play.
Post from the Playstation Blog Killzone 3 Beta The open beta was originally set to begin on Wednesday, February 2nd, but will now be available on Thursday, February 3rd at 10:00 AM Pacific Standard Time.
Dang, hopefully I will be able to download the client early. Thanks for the info, bubble+.
Nothing special, just a third person call of duty sort of like game. Lame
there are so many things that are wrong in that little sentence of yours... i dont know where to start............
start off with the call of duty part
I don't usually like to insult people. But you must be a complete noob(casual/mainstream COD-type gamer) and/or very young. From what you said, I could tell you know nothing about SOCOM.
Do some research before postingBlack102WingS btw, i accidentally gave the_science guy a negative bubble...i dont think there is a way to reverse it, sorry
@ShinoGino you must be the person who is new to SOCOM some guy made a thread on the SOCOM forums that explains why hardcore SOCOM fans are pissed.. http://forums.socom.com/t5/... seriously read it...
I gotta say I agree fully with Black102 Just look at the vid, it's a full on Action game. Where's the stealth? I was also a Socom player before confrontation. Honestly it looks like watching a cod match in 3rd person except it's even more chaotic...and that is saying quite a bit.
i can't tell if trolling or if an actual honest thought. @Xilus867 i have heard many people complain about SOCOM,but i would like people would wait for the game to be released before complaining too much. i also think some of the changes seem weired. wait for the release, and if the fanbase still have problems complain then. Zipper did a lot of work for the MAG community, and i am sure they will support SOCOM as much if not more.
@nnotdead Yea I know where you're getting at. 1 half of me says to just wait until the game is released. The other half says complain a lot so they can fix the game before release. I am definitely sure that SOCOM 4 has things that would be to my liking that I don't know about. I just can't help but open my mouth. I want to get my hands on the beta so I can experience it first hand.
Here ya go...
I think he meant the opposite. lol
This game is going to be a serious system seller but a slow one. I can't wait to get my hands on it, I hope I get in the beta.
Supposedly you will be able to get into the beta with any specially marked copy of Killzone 3. Just make sure yours is specially marked. I could be wrong though, might want to do some research.
Yeah I looked it up your right, I just hope the limited edition from amazon has it cause that where I'm getting it from.
do u get the beta with the game or before? b/c i got mine reserved and i know for confortation they handed out beta keys before the game came out
Idk about that. I think games like GT5, God of War, Killzone, and Uncharted are the system sellers. I don't know many people that want to buy a PS3 just to play Socom. I think its more of a game that if you own PS3, you will buy but if you don't own a PS3, you aren't gonna go buy one to play.
by the way it looks Xbox can keep the overrated CoD
I second that... this will be the reason I can stop playing BFBC 2. Plus this is built from the ground up for the PS3.... so you know that means online epicness.
Casual gaming/gamers have once again fucked over another awesome franchise. Re-spawns? Really? SOCOM NEVER was about hectic fire-fights and spawning 12x in a match. Old SOCOM was about tactics, stealth and calculating team work to take down enemies ya know LIKE REAL SEALS not run and gun like shitty Call Of Duty. And Classic mode is a goddamn joke and insulting to us hardcore fans.
I 100% agree. Pisses me off when people say "C'mon two primary guns!!" God Zipper took out the things that defined SOCOM, and added the exact opposite. They took out lobbies, classic view (from what I heard), game modes that EVERY SOCOM game had, and add two primary guns, the horrible e-tag, and last and least KILLSTREAKS. This deson't even sound like SOCOM anymore. Just sounds like 3rd person MAG to me. This is NOT a REAL SOCOM game no matter what anyone says! SOCOM: Confrontation was bad but at least it had SOCOM roots. SOCOM 4 is just...just...*sigh*....one of my favorite franchises turned on me...and because of all the stupid casual players. Even the cover of SOCOM 4 doesn't look like its from the SOCOM franchise.... This is how true SOCOM gameplay would looks like... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Yes, you are right. Its not even a third person MAG its a third person CoD clone. I remember playing OLD SOCOM games from the 1st on. It was rooted in squad stealth wrapped in a sense of tension from not wanting to blow your cover and create a fire-fight because you'd die AND NOT RESPAWN! it forced you to think and check your corners and watch your squad-mate's back and do leap frogging to move up. However, what these shit-heads at Zipper did was wipe the Call Of Duty DNA of their faggot asses and sold out to this giant retard of a casual multi-player game craze. When in fact SOCOM would have sold fine as a hardcore game like the way is supposed to be. It seems like games from when I was younger were meant to entertain and be unique not compete and all be uniform pieces of shit that every developer create so they can get rock-star rich.
Yeah, i just read there's also killstreaks and uavs... wtf?! So we cant hide anymore? Also, looks like stealth is taking a back seat on this one... ridiculous.
You guys are overreacting. The game has a classic mode in all game types, without all these new things. Nothin' stopping you from playing just classic mode, if that's what you want. You should be happy -- the new modes will attract more SOCOM players. They'll give classic mode a try eventually.. and then they probably won't look back -- to CoD, either. SOCOM one-life / round FTW.
The SOCOM franchise always had LOBBIES, and the game modes demolition, breach, escort, and extraction, but not anymore since it not in SOCOM 4. Its the fact that hardcore fans that supported SOCOM for years are now getting pushed aside for people who play CoD/MAG.
You cant call the mode "classic" if almost everything from the original is taken out regardless. It has the classic round for round matches and no heath regeneration but taking out leaning, grenade arcs, extraction, demolition and the other modes that define the series is just sad. It would even be worse if we have to pay for the modes later in the year. If this continues, the farthest most veteran player footsteps will go to Socom 4 is the beta and that's it.
Looks great, though I'm sure many people will complain that it looks too much like MAG.
Yup, its looks just like MAG. I'll wait until I get to play the beta and see if its a must buy.
