Still playing Homefront? Good, because then you'll be happy to hear THQ and Kaos have new content headed your way -- assuming you own the 360 version.
A title update for Homefront is currently available for Xbox LIVE, and in addition to improving overall stability and network connectivity, the update also includes a free "Ability Pack." It should already be up for download and offers the following:
- 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
On top of that, Homefront will be getting its first DLC release on June 7 as a timed exclusive for the 360. For anyone who isn't sure what "timed exclusive" is, it basically means the content will be released to Xbox LIVE Marketplace first, before hitting other platforms at a later date. Titled "Fire Sale," the DLC is a new map pack that introduces two new multiplayer maps ito the mix, and while it'll certainly cost money, there is still no confirmation as to how much.
Okay, back to freebies. On the same day the DLC is released, players will be able to download the 879 Express Shotgun for free, in addition to a free Premium Homefront Theme to decorate your Dashboard with. Not a bad deal, right?
