  • H-Hour News & Patch Release 3.1.4 - We are now in Beta!

    With this patch release all content originally planned for the initial PC game release is in game. This moves H-Hour to the “Beta” stage. Our immediate focus going forward will be on polish, bugs and optimization as the team does the finishing touches for a full Steam release and starts the PS4 work. <br><br>As a community, we should all be very proud of how far we have come with H-Hour. In early 2015 funding ran out, the original developers left and this spiritual successor to SOCOM was on the chopping block. It was the commitment and talent within this community taking the risk and investing their time and money in continuing the development and support of H-Hour that brought us to this point. This is a true passion project. It required the willingness of developers from the community to work without any guarantee of compensation. It also depended on the commitment of our playing community who kept the servers seeded, reported bugs and provided constructive feedback so the team could continue to improve the game. <br><br>Now is the time for us all to get the word out, promote the game and keep the dream of a SOCOM successor on PC and PS4 alive. Let’s continue to work together to make H-Hour a success so we have a bright future with more content and improvements to come.<br><br>_____________________________________ <br> <br><div class="bb_h1">Patch Release 3.1.4</div><br><div class="bb_h1">Official Maps: </div><br><b><u>Map 6, Scorch</u></b>, first pass release for feedback (DMO mode). <br><br>This is a WIP and should not be considered final.
