SOCOM 4 Bomb Squad and Beta Details

Competitive multiplayer has always been the core of the SOCOM franchise, and SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs takes it further than ever before with modes and options that both new recruits and veterans alike will enjoy. We've previously covered three of our four competitive modes -- Suppression, Last Defense and Uplink -- and today we're excited to unveil our fourth mode, Bomb Squad.

* On March 15th, a private beta goes live. We’ll be contacting eligible players soon.

Sounds like fun. Can't wait to try it out in the beta.

BiggCMan2843d ago

Yea should be awesome I think. But March 29 for Killzone 3 reserves is dumb and a kick to the teeth.

dougr2843d ago

ahhh I feel like an idiot buying Killzone for the beta code now. I should have just purchased playstation plus...gdi.

crazyclown2843d ago

PS+ all the way...they screwed the people who got KZ3 just for socom LOL...unfortunately I bought KZ3 for KZ3 and not socom beta cuz its a very good game

Nicaragua2843d ago

Anyone who buys a game purely for beta access deserves to get screwed.

dougr2843d ago

Why? We supported the Killzone developers just like you did. Just because we prefer Socom over Killzone doesn't mean we deserve anything. Is it funny how it has worked out? Absolutely. Do those people who support a developer deserve any screwing? Nope.

iamironman2843d ago

does anyone even care about socom anymore?

nycredude2843d ago

I remember an article that asked that about GT5. How did that turn out?

You might as well ask "does anyone care about good games anymore"?

If the game is good people will care.

kerrak2843d ago

iamironman, as far as i can tell, at least 2 people care here: one is me, the other is you.

SynysteR2843d ago

Don't underestimate the SOCOM fanbase!

This mode sounds like a lot of fun, Can't wait to see what else Zipper have in store for us.

HOSe2843d ago

this beta is offering A LOT.

Toenado2843d ago

Socom is one of the only games that still gets me on the edge of my seat. When Im the last one alive on my team and there are still two or three people alive on the other team the blood really gets pumping. Very intense.

xc7x2843d ago

well people don't seem to care for you iamironman so who knows lol. i still believe in the franchise despite the changes and Sony having an outsider dev make the first Socom title on PS3 [stupid decision ever] but that's me.

Tripl3seis2843d ago
