mXm Monitoring H-Hour Progress

H-Hour is a new game in the works that recently suceeded in raising around a quarter of a million dollars to get its development off the ground. mXm's command leadership will be following its progress and encourages all members to head over and participate in the discussions about game development at the SOF Studios forums as well.

What is H-Hour?
Touted as the "spiritual successor to SOCOM" and led by the Creative Director who oversaw SOCOM 1, 2 & Fireteam Bravo as well as participated in SOCOM 3 and MAG but left before those were complete, it may just be the closest thing we'll get to that old SOCOM/SOCRACK feeling we've been yearning for.

H-Hour will be a third person tactical shooter for the PS4 focusing on teambased gameplay. It will focus on multiplayer at its core, single player won't even be developed until 6 months prior to launch. Free DLC is a planned feature to expect as well for new maps and such with the only paid DLC being vanity style adjustments such as costumes. They plan to release 2 DLC packs per year, and are already considering a sequel to this game in the future.

H-Hour will be delivered via digital download and is slated for a release in Jan 2015. However that date is very much subject to change. [*]A condensed list of features: [*]7.1 Surround sound.
