Declassified: SOCOM 4’s Online Co-Op

Chris Roper's Avatar Posted by Community Manager, Zipper Interactive

As the April 19th release date for SOCOM 4: U.S. Navy SEALs quickly approaches we’re happy to go into detail about everything the game has to offer, which is quite a lot! In addition to its cinematic single-player campaign and highly addictive online competitive multiplayer,  SOCOM 4 also features a cooperative multiplayer mode where up to five people can play through a number of dynamic missions set up specifically for co-op play.

SOCOM 4’s cooperative mode features two main game types: “Takedown” and “Espionage.” Takedown charges your team with scouring an enemy-filled location in search of opposing VIPs that you must neutralize however you can. Espionage turns the focus to intelligence gathering, where you must use teamwork to track down enemy data and sabotage their local operations.

Before each co-op mission begins, you’re able to adjust both the overall difficulty and the density of the enemy soldiers positioned on the map. But even at its easiest, SOCOM 4’s cooperative mode has been designed to be challenging – as you progress, you’ll need to use teamwork by calling out enemies and objectives to your squadmates.

SOCOM 4: Co-op

Today’s co-op unveil isn’t the last you’ll hear of SOCOM 4 this week. Tune in to GameTrailers TV tonight and learn how stealth plays a big part in the game’s campaign in addition to another special announcement fans won’t want to miss!

This looks awesome!Is it possible that MAG’s secret sauce will be used in SOCOM 4? Will there be tons of players in MP? Thank you Zipper for your great games!

    32-player maximum in competitive MP
    5-player maximum in cooperative MP

    SOCOM 4 has its own original sauce; I liken it to a smokey BBQ

I never got into to co op not even with socom combine assulat, I alwasy seem to find players who just goof around. It does look intersting and hopefully you can heal your teammates just like in combine assualt

OTS view is garbage. Why is there no option for a the normal classic view?

We are gun shy of you zipper.Next time please explain why a game you made will not be able to have maps.Not meaning like RDR…meaning its 5 o clock in mag all the time.Everything looks the same time of day.

Inofensivo said:

February 24th, 9:31 am

erick it has Campaing, This is not Slant Six Games, This is Zipper, experts in Third Person Shooters , this is going to be Epic, Im waiting a KB comercial of SOCOM xD

Berae said:

February 24th, 9:33 am


yes sir.. both.

On topic, online coop objective is always very fun.

befear said:

February 24th, 9:33 am

yes it coop and single player, hey zipper it would be great when socom comes out that you did dev night, where you guys show us how you would do the coop mission and do it with us!!!!

hammersmutt said:

February 24th, 9:34 am

I wasn’t sure if I wanted the new socom, but i’ve made up my mind. Looks smoother than other first person shooters, and i’m eager to see how it looks in 3D. I really hope all playing features, campaign, coop, etx are all 3D capable.

REDSOX1383 said:

February 24th, 9:39 am

I don’t get how people can watch the video and still ask if it has campaign mode??? It has campaign, multiplayer and co-op, pay attention.

Sub-Zero said:

February 24th, 9:50 am

Looking pretty good…warming my sharp shooter up on Kill Zone right now…Headshot coming your way April 19th!

erick_34 said:

February 24th, 9:53 am

@REDSOX1383 because not all see the video and others do not know how to speak very good the English and if asked was because I had not seen the video or read the post

Partnur said:

February 24th, 9:55 am

I was hoping Co-Op would be for the campaign, too. I’ll mostly stick to MP rather than A.I. opponents. I’m so glad another SOCOM game is coming though! No other game has the fixed TP camera, hip fire/scope accuracy system, and movement speed that SOCOM has.

Glacier928 said:

Trixzter7 said:

Looks like I have some saving up to do.

Geddy2003 said:

Is there going to be a demo on PSN?

Dragun619 said:

February 24th, 10:06 am

How’s campaign? When do we get to see details on that? I haven’t played any other Socom games so yea, very interested if this game has a good story.

Prolo said:

February 24th, 10:07 am

My prayers, and those of my 4 closest friends, have been answered. This really is what we have been waiting for.

Does the sharpshooter come with stickers for killzone 3 or socom 4? Ive seen pics that have different stickers. Regardless, me want NOW! Will the sharpshooter be usable in the beta?

    Jeremy Dunham said:

    February 24th, 10:22 am

    The sharp shooter comes with stickers for both Killzone 3 and SOCOM 4 actually.

    Unfortunately, we’re not talking about the beta and what it does/ doesn’t do until next week.

NO_FEAR said:

February 24th, 10:14 am

Looks Pretty, but I still don’t get that SOCOM feeling from anything I have seen…

…waiting to try it out for myself.

Globox_82 said:

February 24th, 10:17 am

I will get it, if SP gets positive reviews.

Phatp said:

February 24th, 10:17 am

Any hints on how when the beta will start or how long it will last?

Yoinazek said:

February 24th, 10:19 am

I think it looks too much like MAG. And MAG wasn’t like SOCOM.

SPOOKULA209 said:

February 24th, 10:25 am

It looks a lot more like MAG visually than I expected. We all know that MAG was actually Socom first but I thought there would be a bigger distinction graphically between the two. I’m still hype though just not as much

@ Jeremy Dunham
i think you guys should try and allow us to be able to have the option of custom camo. Also what about the controller presets for the sharpshooter? i have KZ# and i dislike using the sharpshooter on there because the controller presets and setting never can equal to a balanced settings for the move.

hope this one redeems the series from the joke slant 6 turned it into

Hooligantuan said:

February 24th, 10:49 am

Anything smaller than 32 vs 32 feels super small these days.

But it’s great to see Valor made it into another game. :D

Virgo21Child said:

Please make resistance have move control, I am loving killzone 3 & I cannot wait for this to come out aswell.

Well done sony you have the last laugh

oXBISHOPXo said:

February 24th, 11:08 am

PS this game just went to the top of the list again :)

February 24th, 11:16 am

Hi Jeremy, I picked up KZ3 ( yes,i know Imagine Me buying a GG’s game) yesterday just to get a Socom 4 Beta Code and there’s only 6 number/letters for the code. I just got the Sharpshooter today as well. How’s about Hooking up this Die Hard Canadian Socom Player. I’ve played em all and been in betas since the psp versions….. Have been waiting for this game since the first announcement 5 years ago….


February 24th, 11:18 am

I meant to say, MY Beta code doesn’t work…..I have Socom4 prepaid for, I just gotta wait….

I3rand0 said:

February 24th, 11:18 am

This game looks awful. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a series go from acclaimed to ruined faster than Socom has. Keep copying COD boys. Its not like you guys have a fan base for this game anymore anyways.

Mosh_Pit said:

February 24th, 11:19 am

Add hot gun, grenade arc, leaning, lobbies, jump to climb, classic view and real classic mode. Also remove (Uncharted) cover system, radar and E-Tags, then it will be a Socom game. Until then this game is not Socom.

scorpio182 said:

February 24th, 11:25 am

Lets hope SOCOM returns to its roots.

I would love to try the beta.


cman199 said:

February 24th, 11:50 am

    Co-op has three available levels of difficulty (Easy, Normal, Hard), while the single-player campaign has four (Easy, Normal, Hard, Elite).

Airwalkinman17 said:

February 24th, 12:14 pm

So awesome! Already paid off my order at Gamestop. This game is going to be so sick. Thanks for the awesome addition of co-op multiplayer. I love it already.
I’m in gaming heaven right now btw, Killzone 3 is the SHIZNITZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
