Multiplayer Homefront demo re-confirmed by THQ, “multiple drops” of DLC inbound

Wednesday, 4th May 2011 08:24 GMT By Johnny Cullen

THQ re-confirmed last night it’ll launch a multiplayer demo of Homefront, as well as announcing that “multiple” DLC packs would be released within the next six months.

Speaking in the company’s full-year financial results, CEO Brian Farrell said that a MP taster would help “stimulate” new players as well as those who had purchased the game.

It follows previous confirmation of a multiplay demo from core games VP Danny Bilson, telling VG247 back in October of last year that one would follow, although didn’t confirm if it would launch before or after the Kaos shooter released.

Farrell also said that that “multiple drops” of “robust downloadable content” are on the way, but didn’t confirm when exactly we could expect it. Both the demo and DLC will drop within “about the next six months.”

When the DLC does release, it’ll arrive first on Xbox 360.

THQ confirmed last night Homefront has now shipped 2.6 million units since its March release.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    Homefront SHIPPED 2.6 million copies, but only sold a million. Good luck with your DLC THQ :)

    You’d probably find it closer to 2 mil than 1 mil by now, I assume that it’s a little above the 1.5mil mark.

    I’m just giving Homefront a miss at this point. I probably won’t even get it dirt cheap. Brink is out soon and BF3 out later in the year, no room for Homefront.

    they can suck my sweaty, hairy balls. They want that we buy some DLCs? They should better fix some of the big bugs instead of brining new features or dlcs…

    I have still the same bugs I got on day 1.
