Scott McCarthy's Avatar + Posted by Scott McCarthy on Sep 16, 2009 // Director, Product Planning & Software Innovation, SCEA

We’ve got a lot of exciting news for all you SOCOM fans! Today we’re happy to announce that SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 3 will be hitting the shelves on Tuesday, November 24 2009. So mark your calendars and plan to spend some quality time with your SEAL team over the holidays.

We also like to present you with the very first look at the final packfront for SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 3. Check it out below:

To further whet your appetite as we gear up for launch, we’re happy to announce the pre-order program which kicks off today. Gain the upper hand in multiplayer gameplay with two powerful new multiplayer units outfitted with new lethal weapons when you pre-order your copy of SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 3. See details below:

New Special Forces

Kommando Speizialkrafte (KSK): Play as the deadly KSK. Formed at the end of the Cold War, the KSK operates under the Special Operations Division. KSK operators go through an intense training program, taking up to three years to complete over 20 counter-terrorism specialist courses.

SOCOM Fireteam Bravo 3 GERM

Special Air Service (SAS): Compete as the elite British SAS. Often considered the template by which other Special Forces are organized, the SAS has its origin in the North African Theatre of World War II. The motto of the SAS is “Who Dare Wins,” a solid description of their skill and mindset.

New Weapons

F2000: The German KSK are outfitted with the powerful F2000 assault rifle. The F2000 offers the most popular features of the modern assault rifle including a compact bullpup layout, completely ambidextrous handling and a modular design with plenty of options and add-ons which allow the rifle to be tailored for any mission or tactical situation.

SOCOM Fireteam Bravo 3 F2000

AS-50: The British SAS come armed with the deadly accurate AS-50 BMG sniper/anti-material rifle. The AS-50 .50 BMG sniper/anti-material rifle enables operators to engage targets from long range with high accuracy. Lightweight and transportable, the AS-50 can be disassembled in less than three minutes and serviced without tools.

SOCOM Fireteam Bravo 3 AS50

You can find these pre-order programs at retailers like Best Buy, GameCrazy, GameStop, Amazon.com and other participating retailers. Fans who purchase their copy of SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 3 from the PlayStation Network within the first 30 days of launch will receive the pre-order Special Forces.

Game, after game, after game. Good stuff. Keep making sure you guys differentiate the titles from PS3, make it a different feel, which I’m sure you have.

I’m extremely disappointed about the GT PSP reviews though.

+ Ninja-KiLLR on September 16th, 2009 at 11:30 am said:

so is this special forces thing like the clans from confrontation where you have to be in the certain clan to get the special wepoen or is it just a pre order and get 2 extra guns for online no catch???

+ TonicBH on September 16th, 2009 at 11:31 am said:

Wow, 90% of the comments in here thus far are boycotts/complaints. Seriously, stop bringing up Confrontation in a goddamn FTB3 post.

The sound of /6 missing the boat. I won’t buy another of your products.

People will continue to boycott or complain about anything /6 touches because of what happened with Confrontation and they have a right to do so. IF anything you should be thankful people are keeping the issue in the light because they are educating consumers on past issues with this company.

Is it me, or is the PSP getting much more attention on the blogs the last few days? I love the PSP, but I want to know about the PS3, and games like Critter Crunch, and the Beta contest for Uncharted 2.

+ NelsonXVCT on September 16th, 2009 at 3:33 pm said:

Confrontation was total crap.
Slant 6 promised, yes, PROMISED for good things for the game. Annnd we wait one year, and nothing? … but a new crappy game to release? Get Modern Warfare 2, since it comes out in November.


25

+ Roverxk9 on September 16th, 2009 at 3:38 pm said:

Slant 6 destroyed their own reputation and its going to take a miracle to fix it.

Its unfortunate that the marketing side of a company can hurt everyone in it through false promises and unrealistic deadlines.

I’m support the boycott on their products.

Well it’s official.. Sony has no shame. Confrontation is still in shambles. We’re lied to with every new post they make in regards to Confrontation.

Almost one year post release with no promised DLC. And on top of that it’s rumored that will only get one DLC at that.

I will not purchase this title. You have have some nerve to post this up with Confrontation is incomplete and lacking DLC.

Shameful!

+ Agent_Clutch on September 16th, 2009 at 3:43 pm said:

Sorry DON’T BUY THIS GAME. Actually this might be could as the coding is a a lot simpler then coding for the PS3


29

+ PAs_MAKO-30 on September 16th, 2009 at 3:50 pm said:

@28
I agree. Buying this game sends the message that they can lie to us even 12 months later and we’ll still buy their products.

Pass on this game to let them know that it is not okay.

No one cares about FTB3 when Confrontation is still messed up. Its great to see that NO ONE in the entire company cares about the BIGGEST community.

I dont know that I’m going to get this because I have alot of games that I might be buying on November like LittleBigPlanet,Jak and Daxter:The Lost Frontier,but dont worry about it,I make a plan to get this.Guys,I didnt play SOCOM:Confrontation on the PS3 and I dont have a PS3. Does this game have game sharing?

+ KSPRAYDAD on September 16th, 2009 at 5:12 pm said:

For the anti-Confrontation crowd…you DO know that it is the most played online PS3 game right? Bigger than KZ…bigger than Resistance. I’m not saying I disagree with you just that you’ll have little affect.

Biggest PS3 disappointments:

Noby Noby Boy, Confrontation

@38

I know they said that but lots of people and companies say things. I refuse to believe that a game so riddled with problems and faults has more people playing it then a quality game such as KZ2, Resistance or even CoD4. Seriously?

IF I was Sony or /6 I’d also say that Socom had the biggest and most active community to push more people to buy it and be a part of it.

Don’t believe everything you see, read, or here without an independent source that has no benefit from getting the facts.

Right now your best independent source is fellow gamers. I’ve got 7 RL friends who I play PS3 with regularly and only 2 of us have socom. All of them have CoD4. Thats just a small sample of Socom representing how large its community is ;/
