SOCOM spiritual successor launches on Steam Greenlight

H-Hour: World's Elite, developer SOF Studios' spiritual successor to Sony's SOCOM online tactical shooter series, is now up for voting on Steam Greenlight.

Last summer, SOF took to Kickstarter to fund the project. H-Hour pulled in $252,662, exceeding its initial $200,000 goal. At the time, lead David Sears told Polygon that the skill-based shooter's maps and mechanics are inspired by real-world tactics — an element Sears said worked well for the original SOCOM games.

SOF is planning to share beta keys with Greenlight users as certain milestones in the campaign are met. The studio will post three keys in the game's forum with each milestone, though what those are SOF has not made clear. Greenlight users can keep an eye out here for keys.

H-Hour: World's Elite is currently in development for Windows PC; the Steam Greenlight page also mentions the game is coming to PlayStation 4.
