Unit 13 – new shooter from SOCOM dev announced for PS Vita. Looks a bit Metal Gear
The new shooter from Zipper Interactive looks very much like SOCOM, only without the other three squad members getting stuck on walls and shouting ‘I CAN’T DO THAT!’ whenever you ask them to shoot someone. There is two player co-op, though, so at least you will have someone to scream at when they open fire at a crucial stealth moment.
Weirdly the enemy design, colours and environments make it look a little like a more action packed Metal Gear. The traditional looking cover-based shooting is getting an online shake up with talk of competing with friends, hunting high value targets and daily chalenges. PS Vita’s Near is featured prominently which is the console’s online service that checks your friends’ trophies and other stats so you can compare your progress.
