SOCOM 4 stealth gameplay, limited edition bundle revealed
Sony has a pretty good slate of exclusives for the PS3 coming up. Among them is SOCOM 4, the game that marks developer Zipper Interactive's return to the series they made popular. For SOCOM 4, Zipper has a secret weapon: a stealthy badass who can kill you twice over before you can even catch a glimpse of her. Her name's Park Yoon-Hee, also known as the South Korean 707th Special Missions Battalion's covert operations expert called "45".
In certain parts of SOCOM 4, players will get to take direct control of 45 in order to complete missions that require stealth and the use of a silenced weapon. These missions, all of which are fully playable with the PlayStation Move motion controller, will also have a handy little stealth meter. Below is a video of 45 sneaking into a Naga-controlled shipyard. In case you're wondering about the title, SOCOM 4 is being released as SOCOM: Special Forces outside the US.
Since SOCOM 4 plays a pretty big role in Sony's PS3 2011 releases, they putting a lot of weight behind its marketing. To that end, they're going all out with the special limited run SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs Full Deployment Edition. This bad boy, which will be available starting April 19th for US$ 149.99, comes with a copy of the game, a PlayStation Move motion controller, a PlayStation Move navigation controller, a PlayStation Eye camera and the PlayStation Move sharp shooter attachment.
"Given the high level of anticipation for SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs, we wanted to provide the most immersive offering to fans of the franchise, who seek to experience the next evolution of motion gaming," says SCEA's John Koller in the press release. "With the precision of the motion controller and the intuitive design of the sharp shooter, PlayStation Move delivers on that promise. When used in tandem with the stereoscopic 3D support for games like SOCOM 4 and Killzone 3, it results in an experience only possible on the PlayStation 3 system."
And that's not all. Pre-ordering any version of SOCOM 4 at participating retailers will get you access to two unique slug-powered shotguns. Those who pre-order the game at GameStop get those two shotguns along with an exclusive Suppression map called "Abandoned".
SOCOM 4 will be released exclusively on PS3 come April 19, 2011.
