Kickstarter Link

 

David Sears, the Creative Director of the original SOCOM games, wants to bring you the spiritual successor to those breakout PlayStation 2 shooters. The Kickstarter campaign goal is $200,000 and they just added a new tier for "PlayStation Warriors" (likely by popular request).

 

=============================
PC or PS4 Digital Copy Of The Game + All DLC For 1 Year + All Previous Rewards
=============================
 
Created specially for fans of the original SOCOM games on PS2, this pledge tier gives you not only all previous tier rewards but our guarantee that when we max out pledges for this tier, H-Hour will ship as both a PC version and on the PS4. You receive your choice of either the PS4 version or the PC version of the game, along with the first year of DLC.
 
NOTE: If this tier is maxed out, backers at all tiers have the option to choose between either a PC version or PS4 version.
NOTE: H-Hour will support all digital in-game perks for both versions of the game.

Because shooters don’t have to be about long cutscenes or pointless “wow” moments. They don’t need to involve sprinting around constrictive maps and magnetic bullets. They shouldn't involve overly scripted AI behaviors that are exactly the same every time you play. Or driving a truck through Manhattan on a rail while the city explodes due to unknown causes. They shouldn’t be ranked by who has the biggest explosions and their greatest appeal shouldn’t be “everybody else is playing it.” No, really they should be about connecting on a human level with other players, honoring the contributions of our military colleagues through respect for authenticity, and bringing like-minded people together online to strategize, execute and win.

 

You know what’s more important than explosions? (Though we do like explosions…) Team play. Esprit de corps. A good attitude. Being part of a healthy, passionate community in which you enjoy spending your precious free time. One of the single most important innovations of H-Hour is our use of modern analytics technology to monitor griefers, cheaters, and generally obnoxious players and utilize that data to deliver an experience free of those elements—a battlefield of other dedicated competitive players who understand honor, respect and the values upon which our great military was founded.

Looking forward to this! I want to pledge for the $400 tier, but the $150 is enticing as well.

It's not looking good for them to reach their $200,000 goal, but you never know. They said this was to help them create a proof-of-concept for potential investors. I would imagine they are already working on the game, but the extra money would help them implement more into the alpha. Regardless, I hope this turns out positively.

I absolutely LOOOOVED Socom 2. Ergo I liked Confrontation as well. However with Zipper's massive screw up of SOCOM 4, I bet you can rule out Sony being an investor. My only hope was for Slant 6 doing another iteration, but with this announcement I am even more excited!

This is actually picking up steam. 901 backers, and $70,000+ with 16 days to go.

11 days to go and they're at $116,000...this is going to be extremely close. Looking like they'll come up about $25k short but we'll see. Maybe they'll get a few big backers towards the end.

Does the rest of the Socom community on CAG know about this?  If so what are some people's opinions?

 

I heard about this game because of a youtuber named Blackwido88 who is known for passionately supporting the original first two Socom games and picking apart the abominations that followed afterwards.

I'll go ahead and pledge $15 for a digital download of the game.  I'm interested to see what other Socom veterans think about this project.

Well as of right now there isn't that much information on it, besides character models and promises. I really would love to see just a peek of some gameplay.

However, I still need to pledge, lol. Maybe this weekend, if the GF doesn't drain my account, lol.

It's going to be close. They gained $12k today/one day.

$55,000 in 10 days? It really doesn't seem that big of a goal now. They only need to make 5,500 a day essentially for the next 10 days to make goal.

We're almost to 9 days left and they currently need roughly $64,000, but I agree, this is actually picking up steam. That's basically $7111/day...totally doable. I actually haven't pledged yet because it didn't seem like it was going to make it about 10 days ago. But I'll be putting down my money for the PlayStation Warrior tier.

If this game makes it, we should make a CAG PS4 clan.

Definitely. And since it won't be out until roughly Jan 2015, I have plenty of time to get a PS4.

Just over 6 days left and the campaign us currently at:

 

1,912 backers ⋅ $176,303 pledged of $200,000 goal ⋅ 6 Days 9 Hours left

 

It's going to be close :)

$200,000 is a pretty big goal in the first place. However, I am glad it is almost there!

They got this. I'm probably going to donate on the last day.

Sweet.  If it is out in 2015 I should have a PS4 by then.

 

Glad it hit its goal.  At the very least this project will be interesting to follow for the next couple of years as the spiritual successor to Socom.

Agreed. Also, technically since the PS4 version is only $50 if you buy through the Kickstarter, it's a DEAL. PLUS there's the 1 year of DLC that will be included as well.

its $50? i thought it would be $15 to buy since you get the digital version with that backing. good to see it made its goal though.

You can get the PS4 for as little as $15. This update post breaks down the reward tiers pretty well http://www.kickstart...-0/posts/521932

i meant, if someone who didnt pledge anything bought it at release, it would be $15, not $50.

Damn, I did not notice that, only PS4 text reference I saw was for the $50 tier. I just pledged, thanks!

 

EDIT: at the time of pledging do I need to specify what version I want (PC vs PS4)? I didn't see anything to decide. I went with the $20 tier...

I think you either need to message the kickstartee or they may send a survey. Not 100% sure.

Haven't backed this yet as I need to figure out what tier I want.

Update: I messaged David and said there will be a survey at the end of the campaign to select which version you would like.

Edit: just backed the $150 tier.

4 hours to go, $9K away from the first stretch goal. I just upped my pledge to $25 so I can get the game digitally + first expansion. Since I'm moving to Canada soon I didn't want to worry about shipping issues with the $20 tier.
