New SOCOM announced for PS3

7th March 2010 - Sony Computer Entertainment Australia is pleased to confirm that an all new SOCOM is gunning its way exclusively to PlayStation®3.


The team at Zipper Interactive have re-envisioned the military franchise while retaining the pillars of previous SOCOM games (team work, authenticity and innovative online play). This is an all new SOCOM experience created from the ground up for PlayStation®3.

In South East Asia, a revolutionary army has seized control of a county bordering one of the world's most vital waterways, threatening to disrupt the 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 or 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 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.


Stay tuned for more information.
