Walkthrough Preview of the Covert Missions from Vita’s Unit 13

Posted on January 12, 2012 AT 05:14pm

THE BUZZ: Zipper Interactive—the team behind Sony’s popular SOCOM franchise—are bringing their love for tactics shooting action to the Vita in the upcoming Unit 13.

While various aspects of the game’s high-pressure action missions have been shown off, today the developer gave a gameplay preview of one of the game’s more stealth- and strategy-based covert missions.

EGM’s TAKE: I’m curious to see how SOCOM fans will take to Unit 13. Will those fans be disappointed that the game isn’t a new chapter of the SOCOM franchise? Or will those players enjoy the chance to play a game that has some of the same elements, but which at the same time brings in new ideas and gameplay options?

If you’re a SOCOM fan—or simply looking forward to Unit 13—post your thoughts in the comments below!
