What Unit will you be in?

Zipper Interactive is well-known for SOCOM and MAG, but when Vita launches, the studio will be deploying its newest series: Unit 13. While we brought you a snippet of info on the new IP yesterday, we’ve grabbed a cache of new details that just recently emerged, as well as a trailer for you to check out the game in action, which we’ll start you out with below:

Today on the PlayStation Blog, Zipper Interactive’s Brian Soderberg stressed the team's goal is "fast action, on-the-go gameplay", before going on to say:

The game is designed for players to move quickly into the action, choosing from one of six Operatives with unique abilities to tackle 36 action-packed missions across nine unique locales. Missions come in a variety of sizes and difficulty. Some are smaller bite-sized battles; others are longer, more challenging, multi-objective missions that are a good test for any skilled shooter fan. As you make your way through the variety of missions, you unlock the right to take on the tougher High Value Target (HVT) enemy battles. After completing an HVT mission, you can share them with friends and nearby players through PlayStation Vita’s “NEAR” feature.

While Zipper Interactive’s previous titles have offered robust competitive online multiplayer modes, Unit 13 will instead offer online co-op missions, daily challenges and online leaderboards.

An official release date hasn’t been set, but Zipper claims that the game will be available during Vita’s launch window.
