This game is being made by the original makers of all the socom games except the last one. Which was past off so they could work on this game. Socom has a huge following. You dont hear much about socom but it is crazy how many people play the game worldwide. It definitly has built in player base comparable to Mw2 #s. I personally think that this game will be amazing,a bit cunfusing for a while but amazing nonetheless. Socom kicked ass when it was zipper making them,which is who is making Mag. Slant six did an alright job on the new socom considering is was just a “to hold the fans over till the new socom/Mag comes out” game.
As far as factions go. I havnt even put much thought into that yet lol.
