New copies include the code needed for Homefront multiplayer, while second-hand users can only reach level 5 but all maps. The code costs $10.
In total there are 75 levels to rank up with online in Homefront so sticking with your second-tier status will be severely limiting, although every online map will be available to play on. This is only the second title that is being issued the THQ Pass scheme.
The singleplayer section of the game remains completely unaffected. Homefront is releasing for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in early March. Kaos Studios is developing the console versions whereas Digital Extremes is overseeing the PC launch.
