News: Even though this will be the tenth SOCOM game.



Today, Zipper Interactive announced (via the PlayStation.Blog) that they plan to follow up the recently released MAG with a return to the SOCOM franchise. The incredibly misnumbered SOCOM 4 (this will actually be the tenth SOCOM game) will be released exclusively on the PlayStation 3 this Fall.

Zipper isn't ready to reveal too many details yet, but they did confirm the game will include a single-player operation as well as a 32-player multiplayer mode (which seems absolutely tiny next to MAG's 256-player mode). They've also dropped a few hints about the game's story:

Of course, as with any new announcement, what you really want to know are the details: Who's in your squad? Where have they been deployed? What kind of threat are they up against? Though we'll be revealing the answers to all these questions and plenty more throughout 2010, we don't want to leave you completely in the dark, so what we will tell you is that a militant revolutionary has unexpectedly seized control in an important South Asian country. As the Ops Com, your mission is to command an elite five-man squad charged with stopping his aggressive agenda before it's too late. In only six days, you must lead your team through a hostile jungle and urban environments against an army of well-armed rebel insurgents that completely outnumber you.


If you want to see SOCOM 4 in action, be sure to tune into GameTrailers TV tonight at 12:30 AM (Eastern Time) on Spike TV for a peek at the world premiere trailer. If that's past your bedtime, it'll be available at the Game Trailers website tomorrow.

We'll have more on all things SOCOM soon.
