SOCOM Fireteam Bravo 3 Competitive Multiplayer Features Unveiled

Mark Rogers's Avatar + Posted by Mark Rogers on Nov 12, 2009 // Senior Producer, SCEA

Today, we’re very excited to unveil the competitive multiplayer features for SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Fireteam Bravo 3 for PSP. Continuing in the franchise’s tradition of unparalleled multiplayer gaming, SOCOM Fireteam Bravo 3 raises the bar on mobile multiplayer gaming.

Compete in 16-player competitive multiplayer across eight custom maps and through seven new game modes, each with different objectives. A brand new ‘Leader Mode’ lets players designate a squad leader and spawn beside them to help progress to the objective points. Additionally, a new ‘Tug-of-War’ mode, allows players to drain points from their enemies to collect tickets.

Play locally in Ad Hoc mode, or with friends from around the world in infrastructure mode. When played in infrastructure mode, competitive multiplayer supports a number of expanded online community features including tournaments, clan challenges and ladders, voice chat and character customization.

oh and just because i like to put my two cents…SOCOM WOULD’VE BIN JUST AS SUCSESSFULL AS CoDMW2, IF WE TOO HAD A CO-OP CAMPAIGN AND VIECHLES!..SERIOUSLY..THIS GAME DID NOT NEED TO REWIND THE GAMEPLAY ALL OVER AGAIN WITH THE SOCOM 2 STYLE….IT SHOULD BE MOVING FORWARD!!

@8 nYcFrEeWiLL82

Yeah f’ing right! CODMW2 sold 5 million copies in the UK and US, that beats GTAIV…you honestly believe SOCOM could pull in those numbers? Get real.
Confrontation is one of the worst games out on PS3, to think that could be as successful as Call of Duty is a joke.

WHY SONY!!!
WHY GIVE IT TO SLANT SIX, THEY KILLED the game.
SOCOM
Fireteam Bravo 2 had better graphics, it still had 16 players online.
Give Socom back to Zipper Interactive,
FIRE SLANT SIX!

I lol’d when I saw the screenshots how the kills in the upper left are both color coded and show a picture of the weapon for easy reading. Whats funny about this is Socom for PS3 can’t even do this.

If only Zipper made Socom for PS3. Would have been one of the best shooters ever…

Is there going to be ad-hoc coop for the campaign mode?

Listen up Sony…Tell Slant Six to go back and play Socom Combined Assault to see what Socom is really all about. I remember there used to be 30,000 people online for ps2 and now that we are playing an “upgraded version” the servers barely are at 10,000 on weekends. Also for an online only game no dlc at all has to be considered a failure. Even though Confrontation looks good the ps2 versions own this game. I’ve been a Socom Fanatic since 2003. Sorry for the rant but people are are fed up with the broken promises.

Edit: Just bought MW2 no need to wait for stuff that will never come.

niiice. is this infrastructure or ad hoc? cause the last one had ad hoc not infrastructure so quit complaining ppl!

To all my Confrontation players: We have to boycott any further releases from Slant 6. If they cant support their previous game don’t be stupid and support FTB3. If they have to go out of business so be it. Once we speak with our wallets these developers will have to start putting out quality titles and not broken titles and then try to push some more crap down our throats. Power to the players.
