SOCOM: Confrontation Patch 1.60 Available Now for Download

Mark Rogers's Avatar + Posted by Mark Rogers on Dec 10, 2009 // Senior Producer, SCEA

We have some great news for SOCOM: Confrontation fans. We’re excited to announce that the 1.60 patch is now available for download. Patch 1.60 contains a massive amount of new content and features entirely free to all players.

New Special Forces – The Dutch KCT and Italian COMSUBIN Special Forces teams are featured in this update. Each Force is provided with two new heads, a new voice and light, medium and heavy variants of their own torsos and legs (each with a unique camouflage pattern).

New Weapons – Two new primary weapons will be immediately accessible to players who select to play as the new Special Forces. The Dutch KCT will have access to the 417 assault rifle, while the Italian COMSUBIN Special Forces will receive the SPAS 15 shotgun. Additionally, four new weapons will be made available to players regardless of assigned Special Force. New weapons include the 9mm Sub Machine Gun, M82A1A, AK-74 and SR-25.

Weapon Updates
– A number of weapon updates and adjustments to existing weapons have been included in the patch. Below is an overview of the updates and adjustments that have been made:

  • M87ELR is given .50 cal rounds to balance it against the Mercenaries’ M82A1A.
  • Shotguns are balanced to do less damage at long range but more damage at close range.
  • Grenade launchers and rocket launchers have less delay in between shots.
  • Front End weapons values are updated to reflect the new Cold Front DLC Pack weapons.

In addition to the new characters and weapons, the team has also added 100% Random Medleys to the patch update.

We also have some big news on the SOCOM Confrontation ‘Cold Front’ DLC Pack. To begin with, we now have an official release date: December 17th on the PlayStation Network. We want to make sure that you’re able to spend the holiday break playing ‘Cold Front’. In addition, the special $9.99 pricing will now be available from launch through Sunday, December 20.

Haha like i would pay 10$ for more dissapointment, this game was Unplayable the first 3 months it was out, granted the game came with a headset, making the retail value of the game about 15-20$. this game was great once 1.4 patch was released, but too little too late. At least give us an offline shooting range to mess around in while all the server issues are being worked out…

I’m still waiting for some female models. Which probably means I’ll never play this lol. Should be standard in third person in my opinion.

I haven’t played this in a while, maybe I’ll play some more over the holidays. Looks good Slant 6, I hope you guys get a second chance at another PS3 game, and hopefully a second chance from all those upset SOCOM fans.

+ ShaperOfForm on December 10th, 2009 at 10:56 am said:

This game needs to be marketed again. After the 1.5 patch, this game is up to par with past socoms.
People need to be playing this instead of supporting Robert Kotick.

Who the hell is gonna buy the DLC

+ Alex_Assassin_08 on December 10th, 2009 at 11:45 am said:

Seriously guys, I LOVE Socom.

This is my first one, and despite everyone whining, after 1.04, it was an epic game, and I finally bought it.

The party system and [DELETED] graphics aside, this is a very very very addictive game, and I love it.

But…paid DLC? Come on guys, you PROMISED us all free DLC,…or am I making that up? I swear we were promised free snow maps months ago…at lease 1.06 is here.

But seriously guys, who the hell is gonna pay for DLC for this game? It’s ridiculous. No-one is gonna buy this.

It better be free eventually…

A TRUE SOCOM FAN!! WILL BUY THIS DLC..WHY? BECAUSE WE CAN DEAL WITH THE BS..AND FORGIVE AND FORGET! ITS SOCOM TYME TONITE! :P

@JEFF RUBENSTIEN & ERIC LEMPEL

WTF GUYS YOU BROKE THE PS2 UPSCALER!!! Everything is a pixelated nightmare even the PS3’s menu and proper smooth isn’t working. I just updated to 3.15 and was not having any issues before 3.10 (didn’t play a PS2 game under 3.10). It looks probably as bad as pre Firmware 1.80 ><

@Mark Rogers
Sorry for placing this here, but this seemed to be the quickest way to get a response.

/six can have my copy back. I never play this garbage game anyways.

To bad it’s a digital download. Learned my lesson on buying a DL game like this too. Never again /6, never again.

ooooo 100% random medley’s nice!! and everything else is sweet too. icing on this cake.. and too @35: you could have purchased the disc based version of the game also? would it be any different? I have the disc and enjoy the game still.. but hey that’s just me.

@34…sounds like a personal problem. mine is fine!


41

+ twooh on December 10th, 2009 at 12:18 pm said:

@37. Figured the DL version would be better so I didn’t have to hassle with loading the disc. Then I realized the game was garbage. If I would’ve bought the disc version, I could’ve traded it in or broke it for spite.


42

+ FredNation on December 10th, 2009 at 12:21 pm said:

But wasn’t this suppose to be free or is it a different map your making that’s for free?


43

+ RuthlessEd on December 10th, 2009 at 12:22 pm said:

$9.99 is the special price?

Then you’re going to jack it up even higher?

A ship of fools…

new menus oooooo

You killed Socom for many people… Too late!

Other great games are here or are coming so no thank you!

Just got a new slim, and it gives me headaches even considering putting my dust-covered copy of SOCOM into the machine…especially knowing that I’ll be downloading patches well into the night.

+ ne4ious on December 10th, 2009 at 12:44 pm said:

for $9.99, meh, it’d be nice if it were $4.99 on launch day in PSN, then $9.99 for 18th and 19th. many people would be happy IMO.


48

+ Nynja on December 10th, 2009 at 12:55 pm said:

It probably has the high price because the user base is so small. It’s the only way they’ll make any money off it.

+ LUGIEZ on December 10th, 2009 at 12:57 pm said:

twoo.. yeah be safe and get a disc copy. I played warhawk from psn version and it was fine though also.

Too late. You guys seriously dropped the ball, soiled a respected franchise, and have no right to be charging for anything.
