SOCOM: Confrontation To Receive Cold Front Add-On Pack

It has turned out to be one of the best online experiences on the PlayStation 3 and if you're a long-time veteran, you'll definitely want to download the new Cold Front downloadable pack.

Freshly detailed at the PlayStation Blog, this add-on pack features plenty of new features and content; it also "brings a brand new snowy Eastern European area of operations into play with two all new maps and three classic SOCOM maps for 16 to 32 players." You'll face blizzard conditions and either choose to side with the mercenaries or the Russian Spetsnaz, and you can also give Arms Run a try; it's a new game mode where you have to either activate or destroy "dynamically placed missile launchers." As for new content, we'll get a new thermal vision scope attachment so you can track your foes, gun turrets emplacements, an all new character specialization/progression system, new music, 3 new weapons and 6 "enhanced versions of weapons," and not surprisingly, a new batch of Trophies to earn. If you want it all, it'll cost you the fairly standard price of $14.99 on the PlayStation Network, although we don't have an official release date just yet. We expect it to arrive relatively soon, though.

If you haven't played Confrontation yet, just be wary that it is designed to be quite realistic; in other words, if you get shot twice, you're probably dead. If this doesn't appeal to you, stick with Warhawk.

After the 1.50 update, it's finally pretty good.

"...a new batch of Trophies to earn." Or, in my experience, a bunch of trophies NOT to earn.

Fane is right. I've been playing this game since launch and 1.50 was the update that got the game fully functioning properly for me as well. No more lag (still minor lag sometimes, but nothing worse than what you'd see in a COD game from my experience after 1.50) or booting issues. The only time I really see any lag is when I'm dead and watching someone else's screen, which doesn't bother me. Trophies were a great addition (I also have been troblem earning any haha, I've got one "The Purple Heart" for 50 kill assists, but that is it, and I've played about 123 games since 1.50) but the functionality issues that were adressed were what brought me back to playing Socom as much as I used to with Socom II (played SII by the way today, a whoping 300 people were on, but it was still awesome, although much harder to control than I remember...Best maps ever created!!! I wish Sony would remake SII the way they are remaking GOW and literally make it exactly the same except make the aiming sensitivity what Confrontation is today).

On topic, glad to see the new map pack finally coming soon. Hopefully the two new maps are good, but I wish they would have just remade Sandstorm and Fish Hook instead, maybe even Sujo (would love to see it in HD because I think it would have a lot of potential to shine). I will say though that Night Stalker along with the other two I mentioned were all in my top 3 most wanted remakes of maps, but Blizzard and Vigilance are pretty good too.

This game is great, but this pack is gonna get trashed on. The developers were promising some kind of free DLC, but the first thing that comes out is a pricey pack. Ouch. Kinda interested in following the fallout that occurs after this announcement.

Sounds very nice and all but i think it should come free, The game was brought out a broken game, it was buggy, laggy, you all know what i'm talking about. Apart from that i had great fun playing the game and when the new update came out to fit it up a little it was getting there. This may come across blunt but for the problems the DLC should come free, i paid £49.99 i think it was for a broken game... yeah the headset was probberbly the best part about it but you know what i mean. I look forword to downloading this.

for one zipper didnt develop this slant six did, cus zipper is busy with MAG.




Socom is the largest onliny multiplayer game as far as players on the ps3, so you ur pretty much telling a majority this game is crappy! I will agree though that $15 bucks is a little steep, if it were $10 might be worth it!

It was terrible and an insult to released this game with so many problems. I still have it collecting dust bunnies. Unreal Tournament3and Socom are my worst buy this generation.

I enjoyed this game for a little while but the load times killed it for me and I haven't played it in months. I don't know if the load times were a byproduct of the many bugs, but does anyone know if the 1.5 update decreased the load time? If so, I might go back to it and get this DLC.

know what i would like to see.
a cross between MAG and killzone 2.
mag is good but it needs some changes and tweaks and additions.
first of all you die so god dam easily, i stopped playing it 2 weeks ago because it was driving me nuts.
every bloody corner i turned i died, just got so frustrating.
take MAGs layout weapons level system all that, and through in changing games like KZ2 has, add in spawn grenades and portable turrets and you have the perfect game.

id like to see zipper go back to the socom series once finished with MAG.
i loved socom 1 and 2,the single player campaign is one of the best available on ps2.
dont ignore your fans zipper, dont forget what made you famous in the first place.
its time socom took back the crown.

After u get use to MAG u can feel the Socom roots buried deep inside. I was frustrated at first also until u get the hand of it and then you'll be murdering noobs left and right. Almost went back to Socom but with CoD MW2 about to hit and MAG in Jan there's really no point for me to re-buy it again. If it was as good as it was now when it launched the user base would be alot bigger, even if it does hold the most active user crown still doesn't mean it wasn't sh** the first 6 months. I also felt hosed for payin $49.99 for a headset and a game that was hardly playable, and I am a hardcore oldschool Socom fan. I did the original beta and also was in the original PSX clan, ah the good days.
