SOCOM: Source
« on: August 11, 2015, 06:55:41 PM »
SOCOM was one of the best games ever made for the PS2. Infact I would call it one of the best games ever made.
SOCOM is a series of third-person tactical shooter/real-time tactics video games that mainly existed for the PS2, PS3 and PSP.
After Zipper Interactive got disbanded the series' online services went down as well. Now there's a mod for Insurgency and CS:GO that's aiming to bring the original feel, gameplay, mechanics and maps back from the original series.

Quote from: Steam
Bringing SOCOM to the Source Engine
http://www.socomsource.com

The goal of this project is to bring SOCOM to the Source Engine, one map at a time. When the Source 2 SDK is released, I'll port the existing SOCOM:GO/INS maps and begin development on SOCOM: Source, a free standalone game that will include leaning, proning, climbing, and many other mechanics that cannot be implemented in CS:GO or Insurgency. It will also have native VR support for devices such as the Oculus Rift on separate FPS-only servers.

This mod is an amazing recreation of the original series and I highly recommend people who have played and loved the series to try this out on Insurgency (Insurgency's version is way better than CS).
