Sony Announces SOCOM 4

If you missed it last week, Sony's surprise sequel announcement turned out in fact to be SOCOM 4. The game is in development by the series' existing studio, Zipper Interactive who have just finished work on the online battlefest, MAG, (Massive Action Game). The latest instalment of the franchise will see action shift to South East Asia. Here's the official storyline:
Your mission is to step into the well-worn boots of the Ops Com, a NATO Operations Commander of an elite, five-man squad. You must venture deep into inhospitable jungles, city streets and crumbling urban ruins to engage an army of rebel fighters and discover their plans. Although you’re vastly outnumbered, you’re armed with the latest weaponry and your men are second to none – but do you possess the stealth, speed and tactical thinking to lead them to victory? Time is not on your side: you have just six days to complete your mission. To emerge victorious, you must lead from the front, maintain control of the situation and fight with sheer intensity.
In addition to the gripping new single-player story mode, you’ll find all of the different ways to play that you’d expect from a SOCOM title. Online, you’ll be able to do battle with other teams in matches for up to 32 players – and you can choose to play in the guise of more world-famous Special Forces units than ever before. And – as it’s SOCOM – the realism of the experience will be second to none. As always, teamwork will carry the day.

First teaser trailer will be up posted shortly.
