An update to fix a bug that causes the Xbox 360 version of THQ's Homefront to freeze is a day or two away from Microsoft certification, according to a Eurogamer report. The title update to the game addresses the Profile Corruption error, or "freeze bug" that some Xbox 360 users have experienced while playing Homefront. THQ says that this issue is its highest priority.
"We are also including a fix for multiplayer connectivity and ping time issues, where players are being sent to distant server locations at the expense of performance. We expect this update to be submitted to Microsoft really soon and we will be working with them very closely to get this approved and deployed as quickly as possible," said THQ on its Homefront blog.
After this title update, a second update containing a number of minor fixes will be issued. A PS3 version will go to Sony "as soon as the issues are resolved".
The multiplayer bug seems to affect the PS3 and Xbox 360 version of the game, so THQ will no doubt want to get this problem resolved as soon as possible.
We will have more on this update as it becomes available.
