Over at the EU PlayStation Blog SCEE have just announced a new wave of SOCOM: Confrontation DLC coming to the PS3 very soon. The Cold Front pack brings a snowy Eastern European area of operations into play with two new maps and three classic SOCOM maps for 16 to 32 players. The classic maps are drawn from the most popular SOCOM maps of all time and built from the ground up for the PlayStation 3.
More details of the DLC are to be found after the jump.
The DLC will allow you to 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.
A new game mode called Arms Run will be added that features randomly placed missile launchers that must be activated or destroyed, depending on which side you’re fighting for.
Thermal vision will be used to track your enemies’ heat signatures – vital in the dark and useful in daylight for picking out white camouflaged adversaries. In addition, there’ll be seven new primary weapons to make use of and eight new attachments.
