Is SOCOM 4 MP still alive?

174 replies 1113 views Edited Sep 8, 2012
Hi everyone,
I liked this game from the videos i've seen on youtube and planning to buy it but...is the MP still alive?
I'm asking this because i don't want to stay in lobby for hours finding matches!
Thanks forthe answers
Bye

well theres no longer a lobby system that socom once had, only queues. some are active while others like the pro maps have almost 0 activity. respawn suppression will get you into a game the fastest.

Yeah there's still people playing it.  My advice would be to stick with the classic rooms and don't expect alot of success early but if you stick it out it can be a fun game.  Also classic bombsquad is the best gamemode but it is also very competitive so you will most likely suck until you learn the maps.

^^^^ lolz read: youll be dead a lot, stuck spectating, sometimes getting voted out and not learning the maps, the shooting and not leveling up your weapons.


if youre new, stick with respawn, when u start getting kills then try classic.

Well i'm not that noob at third person shooters (i'm very good at uncharted 3 even if i know they are completely different they both are FPS)and im planning to play the campaing first so...

^^^^well youll be a noob to this game, and playing respawn suppression will get you into games quickly and youll be able to play more, not spectate. playing the campaign will learn you some, but the weapon mod unlocks do not carry over to multiplayer.

and the two games are both tps, third person shooters.

Yes sorry i meant TPS, i dont know why i pressed F.
Well i'll learn just like i did with uncharted 2 where the very first matches i kept going 0-10 1-11 etc..
Is the learning curve for multiplayer steep?

im sure its no steeper than uncharted, the game objectives are shown on your screen and flash when being activated. also in classic mode its preferable if u hav a mic. and I forgot, respawn is called standard.

Don't worry, the ps3 socoms are VERY noob friendly. If s4 is too hard just get constipation and you will own.
