Meet The "Legendary" Operations Commander For SOCOM 4
Those of you who love the long-running SOCOM franchise were likely excited to hear about SOCOM 4, in development at Zipper Interactive (MAG) and scheduled to launch later this year.
But in order to become better acquainted with the new title, you should probably meet the game's new lead character. Cullen Gray, known as the Operations Commander (Ops Com), has been unveiled over at the PlayStation Blog, and this accomplished soldier has quite the history. The son of a naval analyst and a civilian geologist, Gray traveled a great deal and saw a lot of military life as a child. He then graduated from a military university "with an outstanding record" and went on to serve his country in the special forces before being recruited into NATO's Limited Resources Deployment (LRD) program. As part of the New Warfare paradigm, guys like Cullen were employed as "troubleshooters able to leverage only the resources at hand to resolve high-risk or remote field missions with a high rate of success." Needless to say, Cullen gained a lot of experience in this role and after three years and a review period, Gray was promoted to Operations Commander and began to oversee the operations of small-unit operations around the world. As for a more personal bio:
"His physical condition is matched by a deep intelligence and natural leadership abilities. While renowned for quickly and quietly resolving some of NATOís most tenuous situations, psychologically his profile is something of a mystery. Generally exemplary before his rescue, routine profiling since shows that he became withdrawn and cynical, choosing to socialize little with colleagues and showing a distinct lack of empathy for those unwilling or unable to comply with his directives. Gray is driven by the mission at hand and will pursue success at all costs."
In short, Gray's service record "is the stuff of legend." ...sounds like just the right guy to have as a lead character, huh?
