Homefront PS3 patch on the way, PC gets dedicated server tool

Kaos details latest updates to THQ's shooter

A new PS3 Homefront update has been submitted to Sony for approval, while a dedicated server tool has been launched for the PC version.

While no release date for the PS3 patch has been announced, developer Kaos said it's working with Sony "to fully test and deliver this update as quickly as possible".


"This PS3 update should address many of the issues our community has identified with the game over the past few weeks."

On the PC side, the company announced the release of Homefront's dedicated server tool, which is currently available via Steam Tools.

"With its easy to use graphical interface, players can now manage and maintain their very own server," it said. "We are happy to help experienced tool developers who are looking to create their own remote control (RCON) tools."
