Like buses you wait a while for Home news and then it all comes at once.
Following on from news about the forthcoming Resident Evil Space and Street Fighter IV content, and the rather large v1.10 patch, Home Manager Locust_Star (no relation) has announced a bucket load of content soon to be coming to Home.
“A proverbial boatload of game spaces – including spaces for Warhawk, SOCOM, Resistance, and many, many more (we’ll announce more spaces in the coming weeks)…
Of course, you’re all aware of the EA Sports Complex. But let’s just say that is coming sooner rather than later. And it’s cooler than you imagined.
These spaces will usher in the next phase of Home. They will begin to utilize this uber-powerful platform’s true capabilities. We’re talking unlocking items in the games you play from Home (and vice versa), mini-games that take full advantage of the Sixaxis controller, game launching integration. The whole shebang!
We also have leaderboards. Huzzah!
You can also count on tons of apartments and clubhouses that boast increasingly interactive environments. These spaces are freakin’ awesome. You’re going to love ‘em.
Picture frames are coming back. We’re not giving a solid date at this time, but suffice to say you will have them very, very soon.
You’ll have more music, more regularly. And, yes, there will be all different styles (this means that all of you rockers can rejoice!)
You’ll have a bigger Theater, and it will be full of videos (and not just trailers either).
You’ll be able to customize your avatar with more gear – and this stuff is hot. Oh, and there are tons of options for the girls as well. We’re not forgetting about you.
And, to top it all off, we’re gonna be throwing tons of parties, contests, and other events in Home (including a special event to coincide with Valentine’s Day. It’s going to be a killer event). The prizes will be bigger and better than ever before. If you haven’t participated in anything we’ve done before, we’re sure you will now.
See, we weren’t lying when we said we were going to make good on our word to you all.
We appreciate your patience while we make the final tweaks to ensure that all of this is smooth as can be. And we appreciate you diehards keeping the faith while the naysayers pretended like the Beta launch was the be-all, end-all of Home. No way, no how.”
Wow! even the cynic in me can see that this is great news, so all I’m going to say is see you in the Warhawk space!
