Homefront's Offers First DLC
THQ announced their first DLC for the Xbox 360 title Homefront. The "Fire Sale" map pack will be available on June 7 and includes two new multiplayer maps.
In addition to the DLC, THQ's Homefront is also getting a 360 update, which features the "Ability Pack." Included in the "Ability Pack" are the following changes:
- Ice Cold: Invisible on thermal views and airstrike sensors - Situational Awareness: Enemy gamertag appears when shot - EMP Tactician: Deal more damage vs EMP’d vehicles - Short Fuse: Reduced cook time on frag grenades - Bomb Suit: Take less damage from explosives
There will also be the following improvements to:
- Assist points for vehicle kills - Rank Resets - Game returns to MP menu instead of Main Menu after leaving a match - Max ping limits for server connections (prevent connections to distant servers) - Game freeze & hitching - Joining Friends feature - Beacon errors - Party Connectivity; and - Various other fixes
This will be the first of many planned updates by THQ. In a setting that provides a sense of what a war-ravaged United States would look like, Homefront should show more recognizable locations. Hopefully the content and changes included in the update and DLC are enough to keep gamers playing when Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 looms on the horizon.
