SOCOM: Confrontation DLC Detailed


Slant Six/Sony have detailed the long-awaited downloadable content for SOCOM: Confrontation that will be arriving soon. Called Cold Front, the package will feature five new maps, a new gameplay mode, and several new game features.

Some of our favorite maps from past SOCOMs will be returning, like Blizzard, Night Stalker, and Vigilance. Vigilance, Night Stalker, and the two new maps (Uprising and Entrapment) have been rethemed for a cold, snowy environment, giving us a fresh take on old maps and a break from the deserts of the current maps.

The new game mode is called Arms Race. From the blog, the mode "features dynamicaly [sic] placed missile launchers that must be activated or destroyed, depending on which side you’re fighting for." No more information was provided, but I'm hoping this will be better-calibrated than Control Points, which never made a ton of sense.

The package is also bringing back a few old features, like thermal scopes, gun emplacements, and smoke M203 rounds.

On the list of new stuff, Slant Six is adding some sort of character progression and specialization system. Little information was released, but they did confirm that specialization will award enhanced weapons and new weapon attachments.

The price? $14.99 USD, unless you get it in the first 24 hours, in which case you get five bucks off. A bit steep, as far as DLC goes. I've purchased full games on PSN for less than that.

No word yet on a release date for either this package or patch 1.60.

Check out the full story on the SOCOM Blog.
