Video: EARLY Level Reveal

1 like

We're taking another chance today by releasing some footage of an H-Hour map in production. When you see it you may say "Wow. That looks unfinished." This is because it really isn't finished. This map is at the block-in stage and any objects are textures are strictly placeholder. The camera is not representative of the final game cameras nor is the rendering quality indicative of the final visual quality. Still, because it's Kickstarter, we thought we'd go ahead and give our backers a glimpse on what we're working on.

Thanks to Russ who put this map together inspired by the early SOCOM maps we collaborated on a while back.

      love it! moving along!

      @david sears I hope to see real bullet damage according to the environment . For example being able to shoot through concrete and not through wood is NOT acceptable as seen on other shooters. Destructible environment would be a much welcome idea and I'm not talking about just wooden crates or drums . Thnx

      Great! I really like the lighting on this night map. A lot of games tend to fall off with that, but I can see you guys are headed in an awesome direction. Thanks for sharing.

    9. MineTrap on July 2, 2013

      very cool, I must say. It has some vague similarities to frostfire. I like it.

      For a very early map with placeholder textures and lighting it already looks playable!

      Excellent update. The pace of development seems strong. I can already hear myself yelling "He's by the BABY!!" into the head set.

      Congrats on getting to 200k. I agree with some of the others.... Please remove the baby. Kind of weird/creepy..

      Congratulations on surpassing your goal!

      Much is to be said of that. Mr. Sears and Socom fan a loyal following. All we need is that So com feel again. Battlefield and Call Of Duty will feel the heat. Just stay true to the classic Socom, and the support will continue to push this title forward...we'd buy DLC all day and night!

      Nothing like the sound of Socom 2's main theme to get the blood pumping. :)…

    17. Edward on July 2, 2013

      First of all, CONGRATULATIONS TO SOF AND THE COMMUNITY for all the support and hard work!!! Next, I'd like to say, "WOW" that map, although it is rough around the edges looks great. Russ is definitely the guy you want designing these maps. Keep up the good work and I can't wait to see what else is to be revealed. THIS IS HOW YOU RUN A COMPANY!!!

    18. Ara Kouftaian on July 2, 2013

      200k mark has been reach! this is amazing :)
      keep the good work and congrats to me! all backers and sof studios members and future members :)

      I hope it reach 250k in this last 4 days that will be great, keep running the voice! there are thousands of fans that can still pledge and need to, it will be sweet if fans finance the 2 millions for sof studios to make the full game.

      david sears I will have a donation option at your website so people can still pledge money and see if you guys can reach the 2 millions, I bet you guys can do it!!

    19. moblunt on July 2, 2013

      Since the baby is inflatable, will we be able to shoot and pop it every round?

      Looks like Frost Fire! Very good update, but I don't like babies being used in a war game!

      No guys, the baby will definitely be in the final map so stop telling them to take it out.

      Finally about time someone smart enough to dig up the CLASSIC SOCOM style gameplay. We have needed this for years and I'm glad you got David working on this. Not to mention Turban will be providing feedback blows my mind.

    25. Eric O on July 2, 2013

      Thx David and Russ. I can't wait to play it.

    26. Derrick Reisdorf on July 2, 2013

      Too little to really tell anything. I would say lose the baby.

    27. Jason Silva on July 2, 2013

      the simplicity look of the map makes it feel like socom.... too many textures and items everywhere will ruin it... socom was awesome for the simplicity of the maps.

    28. J Staxx on July 2, 2013

      Would love to have updated (HD) versions of old SOCOM Maps (i.e. Foxhunt, Frostfire, Rat's Nest, etc.). This added feature could be a bonus for those of us that backed on kickstarter...

    29. Matthew Richter (Firestorm_20) on July 2, 2013

      Thanks David and Russ. It looks great!

      Nekkid inflatable baby butt!
      It definitely needs to be popable.

      the baby thing looks kinda stupid but otherwise looking good!

    34. Adam (GENERAL GRADE) on July 2, 2013

      looks awesome so far! cant wait to play!

    35. MoPar496 on July 2, 2013

      I wonder if the baby is going to be popable? It would be neat if the deflated baby blocked a path, tunnel exit, or a detonator or something else with purpose.

    36. Tajackamo on July 2, 2013

      I love them asymmetrical maps. :)

      This game cannot be made fast enough!

      Is David sitting on a throne? Lol

      Got a bit of "The Mixer" feel. Not the same, but with the winding corridors and different buildings, with a wide open center, that seems the best guess I have!

      I cannot wait! God I miss the Socom 1&2 days, S2 never left my PS2. Please create lobbies similar to S2, they made for some great chatter before any match. :)

      Keep up the great work!

    44. Mike Legacy on July 2, 2013

      I could honestly care less if the FINISHED map looks like that. If it plays like SOCOM, i could care less about the graphics.

    45. Clayton Borges on July 2, 2013

      one thing i dont like in current games since i was born on socom for online.. is that i hate when level creators make building with so many floors and so many rooms.. thru out the Map and you have to check every damn room for a camper..

      that being said looks great

      i did get a Socom map feel from this. not sure why.

    47. Lee O'Connor on July 2, 2013

      unbelievable! I seriously can't wait for this game! Thanks David & the team! from the UK
