I'm so pumped for this game. Socom 2 is my favorite multiplayer game of all time. It was way ahead of its time and in some ways better than today's shooters. H-Hour is being made for the fans of Socom and old school third person shooters. I'll get a ps4 just for this game when it comes out. I made my first pledge ever (50$) on kickstarter for the ps4 version.
Interesting things about early Socoms (2002,2003):
-Was the most popular online shooter on the ps2 (50,000+ players every night)
-It helped make gamebattles popular with clan wars
-Had dedicated servers, and you could make your own custom rooms (for free)
-Had voice commands like the ones touted on kinect
-Had 22 maps!
-Had game mechanics like dive to prone, lean while in prone, jump to climb
