SOCOM Confrontation

By now most of you have probably heard that the Playstation 3 will be graced with the next iteration of SOCOM, this one being SOCOM: Confrontation. However now the list of Special Forces which will be available in game, on launch, has been announced officially and they are the following:

* Navy Sea, Air, and Land (SEALs, United States)
* Special Air Service (SAS, United Kingdom)
* Kommando Spezialkräfte (KSK, Germany)
* Unidad de Operaciones Especiales (UOE, Spain)
* 1er RĂ©giment de Parachutistes d'Infanterie de Marine (1er RPIMa, France)

IGN says this about the special forces usefulness "Joining a special force is now a perk associated with joining a clan; solo players will still be able to play as either commandos or mercenaries, but special forces (and their associated uniforms, gear, and weapons) will only be available to clan members."

Seeing how we've never covered SOCOM: Confrontation before, there will be more info about the game after the jump.

First of all, SOCOM: Confrontation is not being handled by the obvious Zipper developers, but it's been picked up by Slant Six, the guys doing the SOCOM game for the PSP.

Sorry single player preference people, this one's being targeted for an online-only experience; so if you were hoping for a story-mode, you're out of luck. Since it's going to be online only there's a lot of focus on leader boards, clans, and all of the delicious little bits that come with an online game.
