SOCOM 1.60 Update Incoming, Includes Free DLC

June 24, 2009 Written by Dan Massi

The latest SOCOM: Confrontation update, 1.60, is set to be one of the best updates the title has gotten yet.

The update will feature a slew of new content, including free downloadable content. Players will now be able to play as the The Dutch KCT and the Italian COMSUBIN Special Forces. Also, new weapons will be available with the two new forces, and other new weapons will be available regardless what faction you’re in.

FREE Downloadable Content:

We are happy to announce that the 1.60 Update will also contain additional features and content. We’ve heard your requests for new content and we are happy to provide free downloadable content with the 1.60 update. The following free Downloadable Content will be available to all players:

New Special Forces: The Dutch KCT and the Italian COMSUBIN Special Forces. Each Force includes new heads and voice + a light, medium and heavy variant of their own torso and legs (each with a unique camouflage pattern).

Two new primary weapons will be immediately accessible to players who select to play as the new Special Forces; the 417 assault rifle for the Dutch KCT and the SPAS 15 shotgun for the Italian COMSUBIN Special Forces.

Four new weapons will be available to all players regardless of assigned Special Force. These are the 9mm Sub Machine Gun, M82A1A, Ak-74 and SR-25. The 1.60 will also include a number of weapon updates and adjustments to existing weapons.

In addition to the free DLC included with the 1.60 update we are also working to add 100% Random Medleys in the 1.60 update. We know this is a highly requested feature and we really want to get it out to you.

Slant Six Games has also revealed that a major content release/pack is in the works. You can expect an announcement on that later in the month.
