SOCOM: Confrontation Set To Launch In Europe, New Patch Details
The launch of SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation is just around the corner in Europe, and in preparation for that event, Sony has announced a new update patch that will synchronize all players around the world with the European release.
According to the game's official site, patch 1.41 is available for download now and it holds several new features and upgrades. For instance, the lag issue some players had complained about should be gone, Medley Game information has been abbreviated on the XMB (and it's simply easier to find Friends, too), they addressed a few speed and stability issues, and provided us with a few updates to Quick Match, listed here:
Increased countdown timer in Quick Match Pre Game lobby from 20 to 60 seconds.
Enabled Quick Match team switching.
Ranked, Unranked and Unranked Respawn games, each contains 6 different playlists: 3 8vs8 and 3 16vs16 players.
For more info on update 1.41, go ahead and visit SOCOM.com. This is one of those games that experienced major problems upon launch, but we knew the team would issue fix-it patches in due time, which is why we waited to toss up our review. Really, now that they've worked through the serious problems, it's a solid online multiplayer experience, and you Euro gamers are in for a treat.
