Homefront is an upcoming first-person shooter video game developed by Kaos Studios and published by THQ. It is scheduled to be released for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Microsoft Windows on March 8, 2011 in North America and March 10, 2011 in Australia and March 11, 2011 in Europe and April 29, 2011 in Japan. It’s tagline is: “Home is where the war is.”
Homefront is speculative fiction, set in a near-future, post peak oil world that features a significantly declined United States, and a united Korea that has built a massive alliance in East Asia. The Gate Corporation (a major private military company) also plays a minor role. The game focuses on the collapse of the United States, subsequent occupation by the Greater Korean Republic – a united Korea under the rule of the North – and the American Resistance that fights said occupation. The player is invited to join the American resistance, “using guerrilla tactics, commandeering military vehicles, and utilizing advanced drone technology.” The game will also feature vehicle based 32 player online warfare using dedicated servers. The game is planned to ship on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, for which system requirements have not yet been released.
