Homefront Ultimate Edition Invading This Year
Written By
View author's profile

THQ has added Homefront Ultimate Edition to its release schedule for this year, listing the title for launch at the end of this current quarter, which ends on March 31st.

There's no information pertaining to the Homefront Ultimate Edition, but it'd be safe to assume that it'll be a GOTY-style bundle with the game and all of its DLC released to date. That's The Rock and Fire Sale map packs, which add several new environments for multiplayer, including the Alcatraz map.

Homefront was one of 2011's new IPs, and we actually rather liked it, despite an all too brief single-player campaign. A sequel, imaginatively titled Homefront 2 is currently in development at Crytek, following the closure of original developer Kaos Studios, earlier in the year. Homefront 2 is slated for launch during fiscal year 2014.

I'm lost for words. I'd be surprised if they sold 1 copy of this 'ultimate' edition.

Doesn't DLC prolong the experience of the game in hand?.. why would you want to do that for homefront?

Lol i gotta agree with #1. I own the game, and actually took the time to get to level 50, and I was only aware of the one dlc which was FREE! This is so pointless.

I actually thought Homefront was fairly decent ... whilst it lasted. The game is too short to surely merit a limited edition and also its now all a bit too late. There are plenty other shooters to choose from that will all be cut price by the time this arrives. Homefront itself was retailing for £7.99 recently.

#12 The reason its an "ultimate edition" is because it didn't get a single game of the year

Actually it wasn't a bad game, the game reminded me of bf2, also the only problem I had with the game was the campaign but it wasn't too bad.

From what I remember, Homefront was the most blatant example of a Metacritic manipulating tiered review embargo since Tomb Raider Underworld. Funny how Danny Bilson complained about the 71% post-release Metacritic average while not mentioning the 88% average it had pre-release (a very suspicious gap to say the least).

@25 Considering this isn't called a Game of the Year Edition... that makes no sense. What, only Game of the Year is allowed to bundle DLC with the game now or something?

It's funny how some of you tell others to shut up if they don't have to say anything positive to their game, but brag here...

I had fun playing Homefront and it's nice to see that they bring out a bundle edition, should be done for more games.

It's depressing when Homefront gets a re-release with DLC, yet Rayman ends up in bargain bins a month after launch.

Dont think this game will sell alot of copies.
And did anyone really buy the dlc? The multiplayer was decent, but still not good enough to justify more maps.

Anything GOTY related to this game is like awarding Charles Manson the lifetime achievement award. I'll save my money for something that isn't a complete rip off and is actually fun to play.

@ 23

They couldn't pay me enough to play this crap game again.

@31 You can get it for £22 (I think) in Tesco at the moment, which is a pretty quick price drop.
I thought Homefront was pretty good actually so I don't know why people are calling it worst game of the year. I enjoyed the story and just wish it had been a bit longer.

I enjoyed the multiplayer more than CoD and the community was really nice. Only stopped playing because the Master of War (?) achievement was so ridiculously complicated to get. I might get online to play with new people who pick this up.

Why would anyone buy this? I'm a Homefront fan, but the "3" DLCs (which offer NO achievements), a used copy, and the Online Pass can all be bought for (more than likely) less then what they're gonna sell this.

As for now though, the community is pretty dead. Nothing but the "elitist" are left, and NO ONE plays the DLC maps.

I enjoyed the multiplayer a lot. I'll buy Homefront 2 at launch. Like most online games it's better with friends. I'd like to see more team based points awarded in the next version so it's less about the all mighty k/d ratio.

I love reading news posts. Some of you gamers need to learn to read for content. Slow down a bit and digest the words. Game of the year edition? What? Read. It's no wonder you get made fun of, you come off sounding like an idiots.

I might give this a try as I've never played it. But I'll get myself a cheap 2nd hand copy and say bugger it to the "ultimate edition".

I stuck mainly to the single player as I'm not much of a multiplayer fan but I'm so surprised at the negative reviwes this got. Can someone tell me, intelligently please, what was so wrong with this game. From a single player point of view this game didn't perform much differently than Call of Duty or Battlefield. My brother absolutley hated this game but he never really gives a good reason why and I can't seem to find anyone that can say why they hated it so much. I'm just kind of wondering what I'm missing...

The game is alright but it's dead dead dead online. To top it off the company that made the game has been disbanded by THQ anyhow.

Seems like a poor way to make a money grab. I honestly don't expect this to make up for the lackluster sales :(.

Why is everyone saying the online is dead? Every time I play, I can still get into full games. Sure, there's absolutely nobody in the DLC playlist, but that will change when this comes out.

@44 not really talking about SP but MP. When I did have the game and played it I've been reseted back to level 1 like 3 times while working on the Expert Of War achievement.
