Scott McCarthy's Avatar + Posted by Scott McCarthy on Oct 16, 2009 // Director, Product Planning & Software Innovation, SCEA

Today, we are very happy to announce the COLD FRONT downloadable pack for SOCOM: U.S. Navy SEALs Confrontation. Loaded with new features and content, this pack 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. The classic maps are drawn from some of the most popular SOCOM maps of all time, each built from the ground up for the PS3!

Kit yourself out in snow gear and fight your way through blizzard conditions, joining a team of mercenaries or a squad from one of the world’s top Special Forces regiments including the Russian Spetsnaz.

Try your hand at Arms Run, a new game mode that features dynamically placed missile launchers that must be activated or destroyed, depending on which side you’re fighting for.

Employ the new thermal vision scope weapon attachment to track your enemies’ heat signatures – vital in the dark and useful in daylight for picking out white camouflaged adversaries. In addition, we have new primary weapons to make use of and new attachments.

I have been a socom fan since the original socom on the ps2 and i must say i have been very disapointed with the game issues that we’ve had overall i think slant 6 has made a lot of improvements from zippers designe however i paid 65.99$ for half a game it was almost a year before the tournaments were added and that is why most people purchased this game for all that we have put up with i think that any players who have logged 150 hours or more should recieve the map pack for free as a courtesy the issue is not about paying 14.99$ its about making up for what was promised to us which was a full game at least for the first 48 hours of the map pack launch it should be free for the true socom confrontation players

I agree, 15$ isn’t a bad price. The damn company needs money in order to continue the game – otherwise we wouldn’t get [DELETED].

If you don’t like Socom, then why the hell are you even here posting on this blog. If any of you played Socom 2, then you should so some respect for this company because at least they’re trying to continue Socom; unlike Zipper who sold it and ran to make M(F)AG. (aka: bootleg battlefield)

I’m looking forward to this. It has gotten boring at times playing the same maps for this long. Who cares if it is $15, I’ll take it. I respect loyalty to a game even if prior versions have been a better.

Some of you guys on here are real whiners. First, this game was TRASH at launch. I came back a few patches in, and I was quite pleased with the amount of work they did to get it right. Now that 98% of all the horrible stuff is fixed, This game is what it should have been. Second, if you haven’t played SOCOM since its launch, then shut the hell up til you do. The team at Slant 6 have done a hell of a job getting this game right. It is well worth the money now, and in case you weren’t paying attention, as I am sure ALOT of you weren’t, they said the new DLC will be only $9.99 for the first 24 hours after launch. I will be buying this add-on day one. Thanks for the new maps Slant 6! The game just keeps getting better and better. Keep up the good work.

Everyone write down the names of these people who say there not going to buy the map pack and i bet 75% of these crybabys youll see playing it the first week. Ya the price is high, but they can charge that much because socom is like crack once your hooked you cant stop!

$15 is really no big deal, I don’t mind funding progress into this game.
You can drink $15 worth of beer just playing for a few hrs.
Get a job.
You’re just lying to yourself if you think there’s a better game out there.
