PostSubject: Finally real BETA news.    Fri Mar 04, 2011 11:16 am

Competitive multiplayer has always been the core of the SOCOM franchise, and SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs takes it further than ever before with modes and options that both new recruits and veterans alike will enjoy. We've previously covered three of our four competitive modes -- Suppression, Last Defense and Uplink -- and today we're excited to unveil our fourth mode, Bomb Squad.
In Bomb Squad, Insurgents have planted a number of bombs around the map and the Spec Ops team must defuse them all before time runs out. What makes Bomb Squad special is that it features the unique Bomb Technician character, played by one member of the Spec Ops team, who is charged with defusing the explosives. He carries both an automatic shotgun and a mobile grenade launcher and is very heavily armored, making him a deadly force on his own; that said, the technician is still an open target any time he turns his back to defuse Insurgent bombs. Succeeding in Bomb Squad requires tactics, teamwork, patience and confidence to get the job done, all pillars of the overall SOCOM experience.




When can you get your hands on Bomb Squad, you ask? Well, you'll be able to try out all four of our modes on two maps in our upcoming beta! The SOCOM 4 Multiplayer Beta will include each of the game's competitive multiplayer modes -- Suppression, Last Defense, Uplink and Bomb Squad -- all playable on the maps "Port Authority" and "Assault & Battery". And of course, you'll be able to play each of our modes in either of their Standard or Classic variants.
The SOCOM 4 Multiplayer Beta will roll out in four separate phases. It'll begin with a small, private group and then expand weekly from there until it's freely available to everyone! Here's the schedule for each of the beta's rollout phases:

  • On March 15th, a private beta goes live. We’ll be contacting eligible players soon.
  • Beginning March 22nd, PlayStation Plus members will gain access to the beta.
  • On March 29th, anyone with a beta code included with Killzone 3 gains entry.
  • Starting April 5th, the beta will be freely downloadable to anyone via PlayStation Network.

The beta is scheduled to run until April 13th, at which point the servers will be taken down in preparation of SOCOM 4's retail release on April 19th! Click here to discuss Bomb Squad and the beta on the official SOCOM forums.

That kind of fucks the guys who went out and bought KZ3 thinking they would get in early, LMAO. All you have to do is buy Playstation Plus and there you go. It's another ploy to get more money.

I just bought the MAG DLC too......Had I known this then there is no way I would have donated my money to scum like that. Thats dirty.

Remember that thing about PS+ not getting the beta a while back? Fucking lying pricks. I can't wait for the Battlefield 3 beta :l.

Well at least you get to play on the 15th. Have fun. So that's what they meant about giving you the beta.

I thought they were above cheap ploys like that. I guess that's what I get for trusting a business, a SONY owned business.

That is exactly why I won't give Zipper any money NAME-LESS, they lied to my face at E3 about some basic classic SOCOM features. They will say/do anything
to make a buck including lying about the beta and when it will release. Pretty shady shit if you ask me but on par for the way Zipper has been as of late.

Hey don't beat yourself up, alot of us "trusted" Zipper. Of course if you recall we did it before they were purchased by Sony. Alot has changed since they became a Sony owned company.

I think it's Sony myself, Zipper is the puppet being pulled around by the strings. It's all about money, this will build up Playstation plus sales.

Ive been having a ton of fun on MAG lately. What faction are you? I've never played Red Dead but heard good things about it. Is it any good? And yea I feel kinda boned about playing a beta literally 2 weeks before the game come out. Meh, Sony's can be a biotch sometimes but I can't complain since they gave me a ton of free stuff over the times. Im just hoping for a private invite.

Hey Paul im pretty sure your gonna get a private invite, if you get some to share can I get one?

I have Red Dead, I love that game. Especially the Undead Horde online mode. Free play can be super fun too. The best is if you and some buddies can go to the Mexican Federale's fortress and set up camp on their roof tops and just kill kill kill hahahaha it's hilarious.

I will try my best to determine who gets what, I have alot of Clan Members who really don't visit this pace and I may give the invites to my loyal Forum posters. Due it like SOCOM.com is doing with me and others. I think it is only fair to do it this way. Thanking those who visit and contribute to the forums is the way to go and to thank all of you. So yes if I get extra codes I will choose those who I feel contribute to the Socom Fans forum. Fair enough, everyone agree. But remember it depends if I get extra codes. If I don't sorry and I hope all of you are on the Playstation Plus.

yeah it was a scam to get more sales for KZ3 and now this is a scam to get people to sigh up for PS+. Like Paul said, Sony is pulling the strings and all they care about is money not customer loyalty or support. I am thinking my support of the sony brand ends with the PS3. No PS4 for me, strictly pc gaming.

Raven, the best faction. The only faction that has mature players who speak English and have mics, IMO. Although, I do have an alt on each of the other 2 factions.

Red Dead is 100% GOTY last year. GameInformer agrees with me. It is also one of my favorite games of all time, and a must have for gamers who are also western lovers(or just gamers in general).

I know it is all Sony, I was just so mad I was blaming Zipper just as much as Sony. In reality it is all Sony, as they are responsible for the marketing(damn you KB!).

I'm a little mad at Roper and Dunham for some of the bs they have said about MAG and S4.

MAG: We can't add balaclavas for memory reasons. Really? Well then, how did you add 9 new guns, 3 new armors, 2 new modes and 6 more guns after making those comments then? For gods sake, at least take the Raven guy wearing one off the case for the newer copies of the game.

S4: The stuff about PS+ and the beta a long time ago.

It would be nice to get a private invite, but my chances are pretty poor considering. Maybe they will repay me for being in the MAG beta.

I can't get PS+ because I just spent that $20 on MAG. I love so no big woop. I really shouldn't be too mad about KZ3 either, as I do like the game, and it's the only game I can play with my brother(he has CON, but no CF pack, and those are the only maps I care for other than Fallen).

I just realized I forgot the word lose in the post up there.
