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 .
