- Sony Senior Media Specialist Sid Shuman
has shared an interview and video tour of Unit 13 today, which takes shooters social on PlayStation Vita!
To quote: There's no sense mincing words: The next game from SOCOM creator Zipper Interactive represents a fairly radical rethinking of the competitive shooter genre.
The game doesn't include a traditional single-player story or a conventional multiplayer battleground, instead focusing squarely on bite-sized, highly replayable scenarios that can be played alone or with a friend.
In dropping the well-worn ways of the past, Unit 13 is positioning itself to be on the forefront of an entirely new way to think about multiplayer. The game will track and report your virtual exploits and broadcast them to friends both far (via PSN) and near (via...Near).
To get a handle on this brazen new approach to shooter design, we asked Creative Director Seth Luisi to outline Unit 13's feature set and functionality in a video tour.
Afterwards, we looped in with SCEA Producer Ara Demirjian to get answers to our burning questions. If you have any burning questions of your own, be sure to leave them in the comments!
