Each of Exterminatus Mode’s scenarios, ‘Assault on Hab Center Andreas’ and ‘Escape From Kalkys Facility,’ feature global leader boards challenging players to better their scores by completing dynamic challenges as well as utilizing score modifiers which increase game difficulty in exchange for additional points.

Experience earned while playing this mode counts towards the game’s multiplayer ranks, allowing players to earn progression in both Co-Op and multiplayer.

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

Homefront
  • 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. Additionally, here are a few of the items that are currently in testing for future patches: hardcore mode, more player admin options (votekick/voteban/voterestart/votenextmap), and additional anti-cheat functionality.

Please keep your feedback coming!
