So there will be a cover system in Multiplayer? :/

yes, but there is still a classic socom mode without a cover system, regenerating health etc.

I like how it says "actual footage" as if it was so impressive you wouldn't think it was. Looks weak to me...

Regenerating health...woo...

as far as MOVE enabled shooter go, this is the one i'm looking forward to most.

i like the changes they've made too. since i wasnt a huge fan of the past games.

I've never played a single Socom game. I didn't have a modem (or really desire) to play it on the PS2, and since then I've pretty much just repeatedly heard that it's been a bit naff without Zipper.

So this is a perfect opportunity to jump on board for me. Move support is further enticement aswell, if implemented with care. KZ3 has that stuff locked down it seems, so one can hope internal studios share those tricks amongst themselves.

that should be a given, zipper and GG both contributed into the design of that gun paripheral thing that's coming out. so i'd assume their motion control options will be similar too.

Hopefully the single player still has an open ended mission structure.

1st pic looks good.

About the game


What's up?

    Tiz @Moonwalker: Finished in time for what? The game will be a Destiny-type affair, launch something serviceable and then pile content on later. (0 minute ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I just read IGN's Sea of Thieves article and it's clear that Rare has a lot planned for this game. I just wonder if they can have all of that finished in time. (2 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz This is their plan for most of their games, if not all of their 1st party IP going forward. (8 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz People say Gears & Halo aren't as big as they used to be, while that is true, they've traded unit sales for microtransactions which is proving very profitable for them. (9 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Cultivating new studios takes time. MS have only demonstrated interest in established brands. If they can drop 2.5billion on Mohjang, then it is a very deliberate decision to not open/buy new studios. (11 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I could be wrong on this but didn't Phil Spencer say he wanted SoT to be a long term thing? A returning franchise like Halo, Gears and Forza? (20 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Back in October the Rare team didn't even confirm it for this year but going by what MS said, it seems to be a 2017 title now, (21 minutes ago)
