    SOCOM Successor from Creator of Socom 1 and 2

    David Sears, the creative director of Socom 1 and 2, is looking to make a new socom successor for PS4 and PC. Here is a link to the kickstarter:

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...worlds-elite-0

    My apologies if this has been posted already but didn't see it in the forum search. To quickly brief you on gameplay here is a list of confirmed gameplay features which encapsulate the old socom we used to love and play for days on end.

    New Video explaining more about the game. (Thanks REV)



    • PS4 Confirmed
    • Being made by Creative Director of S1 and S2 (David Sears)
    • Victory Dancing
    • Custom Taunting
    • Lobby System (Voice and Text Chat Included)
    • Classic Server list view
    • Custom Lobby Rooms
    • NO Health Regeneration
    • Opening doors, triggering explosives, shooting out lights (intended)
    • Select Fire
    • Backblast (AT4s - just like SOCOM)
    • Private Rooms
    • Guns Hot
    • Strafing Gunfights (community decides, David Sears enjoyed them)
    • Prone Dive (David Sears likes the idea, could be added)
    • Grenade Arc
    • Clan System (clan management and support)
    • Clan Page, clan emails
    • U.S Special Forces VS. Terrorist
    • Female voice HQ (like in original SOCOMs)
    • NO VEHICLES
    • Leaning (D-pad lean like old SOCOMs)
    • Third person view default (first person view option)
    • No OTS, view will be like old school SOCOM
    • No Sprint (Analog stick will determine speed like old SOCOMs)
    • Maps designed around one game mode
    • Round based is primary focus (respawns can be made like old SOCOMs)
    • Jump to climb (will be put in if community wants it)
    • Game speed will be like SOCOM 1 and SOCOM 2 (action is more important than animation)
    • Online 8v8 with Spectator mode
    • urban maps, rural maps, desert maps, arctic maps, jungle maps
    • NOT a simulator (which means it will play more like SOCOM)
    • Push to talk will be a decision based on community feedback
    • Ranking system similar to SOCOM 2
    • Confirmed modes so far will be demolition, suppression, escort, and breach under different names

    Thanks guys and seriously, Green Up!

    Right now its trending not to be funded but it has 12 days left to make $90,000 and i have seen worse situations get funded at the last 2-3 days.

    I miss the Socoms but I'm not sure commercially they will do well anymore.

    Doubt it happens. While I'd love a true successor to Socom, it won't ever happen in today's gaming. You can't have true hardcore experiences anymore. Not anyone could pick-up Socom and play it. But I hope it make its goal. Question though... if you donate and it doesn't meet the goal are you SOL?

    When you donate the money it will not leave your account until the goal is met. So you lose nothing if it doesn't get funded

    Oh it's pledges not donates

    That is true. If anyone really wants this to happen they should pledge something.

    The PlayStation tier is complete! So if the game does get the funding it needs, it'll be out on the ps4

    so basically i don't know how to $#@!ing read. how much does he need in order to get this going? and does it seem doable?

    only thing im bummed about the game is the lack of vehicles (on purpose I guess)...I sort of liked them on the later SOCOMs. but if he can focus MORE on gameplay that way then I'm all for it.

    I just pledged $50.00 to the cause. I hope this gets funded, or at least Sony sees the support for a new SOCOM true to the roots of the PS2 versions from all the hardcore fans backing this project.

    Maybe Sony can donate anonymously??

    Everyone email Sony saying we want it!

    For little money it could be a string in the bow for them, something Xbone hasn't got..

    If this comes out launch (which it won't), or whenever it comes out. A PS4 has to be on my TV stand.

    Can't wait for this game! Hopefully it's gets funded. I loved Socom! And with David Sears involved, it's going to be amazing!

    The estimate arrival date is Q4 2014 to 2015. But it could come earlier.

    SOF studios need $200,000 to reach it's goal. Once they've reached it, they can fully develop it. Right now the project is close to it's goal. Around $114,000.
