SOCOM 4 Beta Pre-Release Update

Jeremy Dunham, Senior Community Manager at Zipper Interactive, writes:

"Killzone 3 hit stores today (congratulations Guerrilla Games!) and included along with it were vouchers for the upcoming SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs Multiplayer Beta. Though the beta isn’t available yet, we’ve put together this handy little FAQ to answer some of the questions you may have.

Q: When does the SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs beta period begin?
A: We haven't announced the start date yet. Look for more information next week (week of February 28)."

The story is too old to be commented.

Me either, it's gonna be sick!

I wish I felt the same.... use to, but not anymore. I'm cautiously optimistic at this point... It all depends on how well Zipper listens to the community, and I don't really know if they will or not, seeing how all these changes are detached/disconnected as it is.

That's my opinion though, people can be excited or worried, i'm not going to make a big deal about it if they feel differently than me.

I was feeling the same way as an old school Socom fan, but ever since I watched some actual gameplay, I've been pretty excited about it. The one thing I noticed is that it doesn't look like Zipper bogged down on the players movement like Slant six did, it looks alot more fluid like the older Socoms.

Thats why I cant wait, to see if its going to disappoint or completely hook me

MastaMold2728d ago

Cant wait, Killzone 3 is a beast dont know what all the hate for this game about. SOCOM 4 is going to be sick.

Blaze9292728d ago

well, that was a pointless FAQ article

SSKILLZ2728d ago

It's better than nothing

JAM_GAM2728d ago

but it was nothing, lol.

nevin12728d ago

an open beta did wonders for Uncharted 2 and I think it would the same for Killzone3.

JAM_GAM2728d ago

haha,you mean Socom 4, right? It's okay, I got KZ3 on the mind as well.

i wish this Q&A had a little more A's than Q's. but either way im excited to play some SOCOM.

dougr2728d ago

question, I don't really care a lot for Killzone, but should all copies that are on shelves now come with a Socom code? Because I'll buy Killzone just for a Socom beta code.

zgoldenlionz2728d ago

the copies with the beta code are labeled right on the front of the case. my code is numbered 837,000 something so im pretty sure all copies out now will work.

DaCajun2728d ago (Edited 2728d ago )

Now I have to say if you are going to buy KZ3 just for the Socom 4 beta if you wouldn't have bought KZ3 otherwise sounds pretty pathetic. Pay full price so you can get into a open beta early seems a bit drastic. Because the card does say early open beta access. Keyword being EARLY meaning they will probably open it up to everyone eventually like the open KZ3 beta. I could be wrong about the EARLY understanding but that's what it says and that's how I interpreted it.

I remember when betas were free and some even compensated people for their help it making the release game better. Now they use it to get people to subscribe to certain things or use them to sell other products. So essentially you are paying for a beta by buying or subscribing to something you might not otherwise. We human animals are truly pathetic and gullible.

Don't get me wrong KZ3 is a good game and I'm enjoying it minus the annoying COD players that have infected the game. Just saying that should not be the only reason you buy the game to get a beta but because the game is good.
