SOCOM: Confrontation Beta Patch 1.10 Released Today

Yesterday, we told you about the multiple issues the freshly launched SOCOM: Confrontation was experiencing, and that Sony had vowed to fix the problem ASAP. Well, it seems they've done just that, thanks to the 1.10 patch released earlier this morning.

According to a post made by Seth Luisi over at the official Confrontation website, the team has announced they provided annoyed beta testers with this patch during server maintenance that started at 5 a.m. PDT. The patch was designed to address a variety of things, and that includes: added support for European EULAs, added support for dedicated servers located in Europe and Australia, fixes a number of stability and late joining issues, and reduces the volume of the proximity chat by 50%. As Luisi says, this patch won't repair "all issues" but more updates are on the way. At the very least, this should allow users to get back onto the battlefield and test out one of this year's most promising titles, and that's good news. Of course, we'll have to keep an eye on any future patches, which may be just around the corner.

If there are any testers out there who has some feedback concerning the state of the beta, feel free to let us know. Hopefully, the 1.10 update has made the game playable and enjoyable, but there may be other major issues that are putting a crimp in your entertainment. Speak up; Sony listens to feedback.

i got the patch and once installed i found that it had deleted my saved custom characters :( and my stats (lol.. erm, they were amazing stats.. im THAT good).. anyway, as you can tell, i wasnt that bothered.

BUT.. since the patch the game has frozen on my three times in three different games, twice in Lobby and once in-game.. im just off to report that on the forum now.... im sure it will be fixed!

I really enjoy playing Socom besides the freezing issues.Also the game audio will go out at times.I also dread how many Call of Duty and Resistance people are complaining on how slow the charactes are and how long it takes to throw a grenade..Its Socom lol

i like that, thats awsome lol. my only slight complaint was how long it takes to throw a nade but once i realized that the r1 is pressure sensitive and makes the nade go farther when you look up to throw it cut my throwing time drastically.

yeh, Socom is better in that way because its more real, thus hurts twice as much when you come from Battlefield or Cod4.. lol

I am starting to warm to Socom, but the pain is just getting in to a game, other than that.. (and the freezing) ..im happy.

I think that comments from RFOM and COD players is unjustified because those games had to of gone through a Beta process, but the difference is that some games (like Socom) will offer the Beta earlier in the production, and will work at the feed back.

I just hope that the end result will be as smooth and as plaable as the aforementioned games.

Ok it's hard to comment on this beta, but playing it's much easier =) the gameplay and everything about this game is simply amazing, the mechanics, the customization is unbelievable. the game makes you want to play over and over again, the only problem is one simple one, connectivity. and honestly (i havn't updated yet) most of the people i've talked to have said that everything is worse then before the patch, there's less servers making everything more clogged, and there's a the frequent lag, but honestly if you get into that one game and you play it and you're like omg this is amazing, then you know how it feels to play this game on a good lag-free game =) and once you get that feeling, you keep going on for more and more, haha

I played the beta a few times since Friday. I found that using a server outside of my timezone is not a good idea - had lots of lag issues (moving, shooting, radar/compass status updating, ...). The limited # of US West channels are a problem too - lots of players bunched up on the 1st server but many less on the other 2-3 servers so finding a game to join with enough players was sometimes a challenge. The 1st server performed okay but the short-range enemy proximity warning system didn't always work for me as I've lost count of the number of times that guys would walk up and shoot me from behind. As others have mentioned, it can take a while to join a game that is in progress but I thought that the delay was due to the game waiting for a break in the action and loading info on the state of the playing field on top of the map (destroyed trucks, walls, doors, ...). Another thing that bugged me with the demo is that there's no way to exit a game without quitting the entire game (quitting early or after completing all of the game sessions). I've only had the game freeze once so far but that happened between game sessions. Otherwise, the mechanics and gameplay are very smooth and the action can get intense.
