    Homefront PC Update Available

    We are happy to announce that a small patch is available for PC players with the below optimizations & fixes:

    • Improved quickmatch logic, players will now join populated servers.
    • Improved ping queries on servers, player count, gametag info and general server info.
    • Limited number of concurrent ping and rules queries, this prevents issues associated with query spam (disconnects on certain ISP's and network hardware).
    • The friends list will now display all friends that are in dedicated server games.
    • The player list will populate when using the server info option.

    The patch is now available on Steam and will be downloaded the next time you start Homefront. Please keep your feedback coming!

    Xbox 360 Title Update Progress

    The Homefront team submitted an Xbox 360 title update to Microsoft earlier today. While we do not have an exact date for this update to be approved, we will be working very closely with Microsoft to fully test and deliver this update as quickly as possible.

    This title update should address many of the issues our community has identified with the game over the past few weeks. Once Microsoft approves it, we will reveal more specific information about what this update contains. The entire team at both KAOS and THQ would like to thank you for playing Homefront and being a member of our community. We appreciate your dedication and patience as we continue to improve and enhance the game with each update.

    Sincerely,

    The Homefront Team

    Homefront PC Patch 1.0.3 Now Available!

    The latest patch is now available on Steam and will be downloaded the next time you start Homefront.


    • We now store two separate ban lists on servers; a local ban list, and a global ban list. The local ban list is for bans that originate on the server (via kickbans, etc). The global ban list is for bans that are initiated by a trusted ban list authority. The ban lists store the date of ban, the name of the admin who initiated the ban, the reason for the ban, and a URL field for any relevant ban evidence (demos etc).

    • A DemoURL can now be specified in the server playlist, this is used to indicate the location of stored demo files to user’s in-game (see the multiplayer options screen). A good practice for server admins would be to share the demo folder via FTP, this would allow users to grab demos of games they starred in, and also (very importantly!) allow users and anti-cheat a…

    I've gone ahead and added user hilite for our wiki, so if you see somebody's name in blue or green, you should know they're a b'crat or sysop, respectively.

    I was considering adding hilite for rollback users as well.

    Joystiq has posted a preview of Homefront's multiplayer. It discusses the game's Battle Points system, as well as a newly announced feature named "Battle Commander."

    Battle Commander "makes large scale warfare personal [and] rewards players for having vendettas," senior designer Brian Holinka told us. It's Homefront's take on the killstreak: perks that empower players that rake in consecutive kills. But there's an important twist: with each "perk" that you receive, you become an increasingly vulnerable target, with the AI assigning personal assassination missions to the opposing team in order to bring you down.

    Senior designer Brian Holinka spoke about the importance of dedicated servers at a recent press event.

    "You have to think about your constraints when you're making a game. If we host a server on a console, all of a sudden, that console is both server and it's playing the game. That really lowers everything: player count, the number of vehicles, everything. Dedicated servers allow us to offload all that work and basically all the client has to worry about is running the game."

    Homefront will make use of THQ's Online Pass. The Online Pass is THQ’s response to used game sales. New copies of the game will contain a single-use code that unlocks the majority of Homefront's online multiplayer. Players who buy a used copy will be able to play all the multiplayer maps, but their progress will be capped at level 5, unless they buy an Online Pass for $10.
