272w ago - Over at the Official Playstation Blog, the team has confirmed that the May issue of EGM will have a flood of information regarding SOCOM's next outing for the PS3.
They also confirm a brand new map which has a 16 player core area as well as an expanded footprint for 32 player matches.
To quote: In anticipation of the Confrontation cover story in the May issue of EGM, 1UP has posted two new screenshots.
The initial reaction has been positive, and the dev team is really excited that the world can finally see some of their hard work. This has also been a huge relief to SealTeam-6, who has the unenviable job of telling SOCOM's huge, hungry fan base every week that:
a) yes we are still working on the game, and b) no, there is no new information we can share at this time No more! The flood of information is coming in the May issue of EGM. As to the hundreds of private messages and emails that we get every week, we read and appreciate all of them. Whether it's a quick note to inquire
"What the [heck] is taking you [fine fellows] sooooo long??"
or an encouraging
"Please don't [mess] up the new SOCOM!!"
we feel the love. The overwhelming message is that you want Confrontation to be great, and you want it soon. So to address those points, the game is looking, playing and feeling better than ever and we are working hard to get it in your hands as soon as possible.
Hang in there, Confrontation is coming!
