Sony have announced that their tactical combat simulator SOCOM: Confrontation will see the expansion pack, “Cold Front”, released in Europe on January 7th. The expansion had already been released in the US earlier in the week.
Cold Front consists of a new area in Eastern Europe populated that has five new maps, new Trophies, new weapons, and a new specialisation system. What will of course be evident from the title is that these will also include combat in the snow. Players will have snow effects on their screen and will be able to buy special snow gear as well.
The official Playstation blog made the announcement to a mixed reception but the expansion doesn’t contain any significant alterations to the game mechanics.
As of yet no pricing has been agreed for the expansion pack, but in the US it was priced at $14.99.
