New Homefront Map Pack Announced

By Michelle Balsan, 5 years ago
THQ has revealed that a brand new map pack will be headed to http://www.trueachievements.com/Homefront-xbox-360.htm in the near future.

Titled "The Rock" (and sadly devoid of professional wrestlers or Sean Connery), the map pack will include two new maps as well as two new areas for the Team Deathmatch mode.

Here are a couple details on those new maps:
o Alcatraz - America’s most infamous prison becomes the site of fierce close-quarters fighting.
o Bridge – A combined arms effort to secure the North Tower of the Golden Gate Bridge and surrounding area, large-scale warfare at its best!
Details about the new Team Deathmatch areas were also revealed:
o Waterway – Wage war atop storefronts and in the streets of the Spillway, where every inch feels like a mile.
o Overpass – Battle in a fan-favorite Ground Control space for the first time in Team Deathmatch!
"The Rock" was given no specific release date, but we know it will set you back 400 MSP. There's no word on if the pack will contain achievements, but if the "Fire Sale Map Pack", which you can download here for 240 MSP, is any indication, no achievements will be added.

Not a bad price for 2 maps. At least they're still supporting the game after launch

To be fair, Homefront is doing DLC the way it should be done - with no achievements, and at a reasonable price.

Half of the time you can't even find a full match in most game modes facepalm
My forum posts are probably not worth paying attention to.

Great game, shame most of the community are too skint to spare 240msp for the maps.. it's just annoying when the map rotation goes to a DLC map and the lobby goes from 32 players to 7... cry
ZUS ROCKS! That is all.

Not bad, but the I haven't really played on the original DLC maps yet, I hope they make a DLC only playlist.
If they say "Ha! I killed you, you suck" they really said "Ha! You suck because even I can kill you"

If a shitty game drops DLC in the woods, does it make a sound?

Would have prefered Dlc like they should be since not every person wants to buy dlc for stuff that could be good or bad for no gamerscore. Don't know about most but I would have been fine with the basic maps.

Oh, Alcatraz would be a fun map to play if they make it accurate enough.
Still need to pick this up.

The price is not bad. A little variety to break up the grind towards Expert of War. Still, the game is underwhelming.

maybe they should fix all of the bugs and problems with the game first before doing DLC.

my challenges all got reset twice now,and then it tried again last night.

In the previous map pack, i've only played the hydrolic station, and never seen the second map like if it wasn't integrated. Someone have played it or can confirm it was in ^^

I wouldn't consider these except that the price is reasonable. As previously mentioned by others, maybe it will make acquiring Expert of War a bit less tedious.

I'll agree at the map concept being interesting, but if it's just called Alcatraz and is a random set up I will be upset.

200 points per map really isn't that bad...If I didn't totally hate the game from that online beta that is.
You seem a little furious...
