We are happy to announce the first Homefront DLC offering will be available on June 7th – the “Fire Sale” Map Pack will carry you further into the heart of a war torn and twisted America. “Fire Sale” will launch first on Xbox LIVE and features two all-new multiplayer maps. This is just the first small taste of anticipated robust updates that will be coming to Homefront.
Also on that same day, the 870 Express Shotgun will be available for download and as a way of saying thank you for your continued support, we are offering a free Premium Homefront Theme that will be provided on the Xbox 360 Marketplace.
