SOCOM 4 Open Beta Today!



The SOCOM 4 beta becomes open today for those who did not win one of our many giveaways for it, weren’t PS+ members, etc. You will be treated to a week and a half of scheduled events. Here is what to expect:

  • Beginning today, Tuesday (4/5) – Last Defense, Classic Last Defense, Uplink, Classic Uplink
  • Wednesday (4/6) – Bomb Squad, Classic Bomb Squad, Last Defense, Classic Last Defense
  • Thursday (4/7) – Sniper Alley (Custom), Last Defense Run ‘n Gun (Custom), Bomb Squad, Classic Bomb Squad
  • Friday (4/8) through Wednesday (4/13) – All Gametypes Open

So get those Move controllers and Sharpshooters ready! Game nights are not possible, sadly, as Zipper has chosen to not include the party system in the Beta. I look forward to hearing your impressions on the game once it is live.

    Well I have been playing the beta quite a lot, and I have been enjoying. Though I have problems with it as well. I haven’t played any Socom Games in the past, but I can tell that this isn’t like past socom games. Idk why I just don’t get the feel of it. To me it seems like MAG with better graphics but not great graphics, but also just in 3rd person. The cover system isn’t as smooth as you would want. And the lag is annoying. Sometimes, its hard to tell where the objective is located as well. Certain weapons are over powered, as well as the head shot system. 90% of the time I get a head shot kill. And well it shouldn’t be one.
    eh this was a small saying as to what i got from the beta so far. I am a PS+ member.

    Thanks for sharing. I don’t think we will ever get that socom feel. It is much more mainstreamed it seems. If you use iron sights its an automatic head shot 90% of the time. The cross hairs or something need tweaking, I agree.
