Check out some new gameplay footage of SOCOM 4 for PlayStation 3.
Looks exactly like MAG, just in 3rd person. Hope it's not like that when the game releases.
I think you mean it plays similar to MAG because the graphics look a lot better. I'm really excited for this game can't wait.
If its anything like mag im not getting it. I will wait for the beta to judge the gameplay though.
I have no problem with it looking, and to a certain extent playing, like MAG. It's the only shooter this generation that's held my attention. Classic Mode all the way though.
Good ole Socom days are returning! I played Socom 2 and 3 till my controller broke lol
Nice!!! Looks like ALOT of fun. I can't wait to play the beta.
Can't wait for the BETA next week.......
yeah the game really looks promising. let's hope the beta rocks!
The second video shows a lot of the gameplay I didn't know about. You can dive, and go into a first person aiming mode, or zoomed over the shoulder aiming mode, knifing, etc. Kind of weird that everyone is playing it COD-style by nade spamming (and its hilarious that the guy almost gets killed by his own grenade like 4 times because of it). Can't wait for this game.
Nade spamming = COD??? I think you havent played socom. First thing 80% of players do in socom, run to a choke point and start chuckin grenades. Now the smart player will save one for the end of the round.

dude in the second video needs to learn how to play... chucking grenades might get you a kill and some assists... but your ass will get shot real quick in the open like that... game looks good.. I liked the diving into the prone position.
they had that since socom 2
but he's cool, he has his Xcopied_nameX online name on his shirt. Not even an original name, needs the X's
@DirtyLary If it means anything to you, I own every single prediction name on the psn, I just thought I would clear that up. The x's just signify cross hairs, thats all. Yes though, I have all possible prediction combinations I just think this 1 fits me better because im a shooter fan. Thanks for the bash though, it gives me a chance to speak me mind.
idk, i've played plenty of clans who start every match by tossing all their grenades into well known areas where people most likely run to start...but yes, grenade spam does suck. If I even carry grenades, I'm saving them for the end game when we gotta get that last guy out of hiding
I understand chucking grenades into well known hiding areas and stuff. and if I have a grenade equipped and a dude comes around the corner i'll drop it in front of me... I'd rather kill myself than give him the kill... but this dude is supposed to be good or something (hence the custom shirt/chance to play Socom 4)... he started off like 0-6 just tossing grenades around... I dunno the gameplay was cool and the footage was awesome... i just wish we could have watched a player that had some skill. because that was sad. I'm just saying I wouldn't want a not-so talented player to play the game for a video promoting the gameplay.
oh yea definitely...i got bored watching that guy for 10min just throw a grenade, walk a bit, then die
that guy sucks
Wow MAG2 that's all I can say. Love MAG so I'm happy for this but damn it just looks like a mod of the orginal game in Third person. I hope they at least use high res textures this time. MAG had low textures due to 256 players and online lag issues.
It is using the same game engine MAG is so it will look very similar. MAG was SOCOM but it drifted to far fromthe SOCOM series so they re-named it. SOCOM 4 will be a very different game from MAG because of the gameplay and the better graphics. MAG has almost no lag issues and they even said how fast your internet needs to be for the game.
Yes everything you said we already know. Just proved my point.. MAG2
I was bangin 7 gram rocks, that's how I roll - winning I have one gear: GO - epic winning Are you bipolar? I'm bi-winning Win here, win there, win win everywhere socom = win
I love the SOCOM franchise and I'm definitely gettin this one. That said I know Zipper wants to maximize sales and maybe get new people to buy SOCOM. But by adding the "Call of Duty" spawning trend, itreally eliminates the charm of the SOCOM series. By adding spawning, it eliminates communication and tactics that was so important in the earlier games. In my opinion, it leveled the playing field also. For instance, an expert in shooting games may think twice about going gung ho against a team that uses flanking tactics, two-by-two formation to win. Further that by the fact that he has to wait ten minutes for the next game. Spawning eliminates all that and adds run-and-gun play, realizing if he or she dies, they just got to wait a few seconds to respawn. I say keep spawning to the Call of Duty just crowd.
Its got a classic no respawn mode as well for the hardcore players so you can play the game however you want.
i'm trying to reserve my criticism until I see the implementation of the classic mode. Edit: @nicaragua, thank you for rendering my comment redundant. I need to stop opening up articles and sitting on them for a half hour
How well they implement classic mode will determine whether or not I buy this game. I'm going back to playing Counterstrike(source this time) because this respawn nonsense disgusts me. I think Zipper will do a good job with classic mode and hopefully they will implement it in such a way that it will be a primary rather than secondary component of the game.
As per the video, graphics are much similar to MAG. Gameplay is pretty awesome though.
looks very nice indeed
CAN'T F'ING WAIT!!!
Can't wait, to play with the sharpshooter.
respawn is for training get into a clan and play respawn its priceless. ps, busco reclutas para mi clan de SOCOM 4 pm here o en psn '' arakouftaian ''
Im not trying to say the game is bad or anything but I'm kind of worried about the classic mode..don't you think they would have showed classic mode by now to please its REAL fans of the game? i haven't seen any footage of it =/ I have a beta code and I'm most likely buying this game..but i have a feeling the socom gameplay will be missing..
Looks like shit. Not socom.
@GunofthePatriots All I can say is play the beta, you will be impressed. As amatter of fact, if anyone is skeptical, you are the most vulnerable and the most to emerge a fan after playing.
with my low expectations i will be easily pleased. i will play the beta and it will decide everything. i had low expectations for ff13 but i ended up loving it....we will see!
This is the first good overview of Socom 4 that Ive seen. Read many articles saying this will suck... I need more videos of the gameplay... I really want to pre-order.
If it plays anything like SOCOM 2 then I am definitely in!
