SOCOM: Confrontation is now available to purchase but for you "trophy whores" out there, you will be disappointed. The game does not feature trophies as originally suggested, rather according to Jeff Rubenstein, trophies will be added to the game "via a patch, within the next couple of weeks." The SOCOM team have confirmed that trophies will be coming soon, but no release date has been given.
There was also no mention if the trophy system will be retroactive. Any criteria you may have already achieved to unlock a trophy will need to be done again once the trophy update goes live. The official comment from Rubenstein follows:
"We’ve noticed a couple of comments today on the blog from gamers who purchased SOCOM Confrontation; you’ve been asking ‘Where are the trophies?’
Well, I just wrapped up a conversation with the SOCOM team, where they’ve confirmed the fact that trophies *will* be coming, via a patch, within the next couple of weeks."
