Although there’s just under a month to go now until Zipper Interactive’s much-awaited SOCOM: Special Forces (AKA SOCOM 4) game finally makes its way into stores and then into the hands of gamers, it hasn’t stopped the developer from teasing us a little more with a sneak peek at 2 of the multiplayer maps.
According to a recent post by Jeremy Dunham (Zipper Interactive’s senior community manager) over on the blog.eu.playstation.com website, the two multiplayer maps in question – Cesspool and Von Heine Express – have not really been seen outside of the developer’s up until now.
The Von Heine Express map, which according to Jeremy was one of the very last multiplayer maps they finished, is set in a makeshift military base on the coast of Southeast Asia. The map is said to be ideal for great sniping scenarios, and comes complete with abandoned train cars.
Meanwhile, the Cesspool map, which was one of the earlier multiplayer maps that were developed for the SOCOM: Special Forces game, came about due to how much the developer loved the thematic from the single player mission ‘Means to an End.’ This map is ideal for close-quarters combat.
You can view the trailers for the Cesspool and Von Hein Express maps below this post. What do you think of the two multiplayer maps that are being previewed?
