Summarization of the SOCOM portion

  • No jump to climb. Levels aren't designed this way. However, hurdling over objects has been shown in SP, so obviously there's some animations for getting over/around objects.
  • Multiple qeues for giving orders to your team. You can have them do one task, and immidiately go to the next.
  • The idea of adding MP only to the PSN Store is appealing to them.
  • They discussed showing, what I assume to be, MP in upcoming trade shows.
  • SOCOM4 will be using a similar engine to MAG, but many upgrades and will be much better.
  • Unlockables are a go. Whether they will be online or not has not been confirmed, but it appears this way. Trophies are more than likely NOT going to be tied to these unlockables.
