UPDATE: Gamespot preview and trailer posted! http://e3.gamespot.com/story/6210629/homefront-exclusive-impressions-e3-first-look
THQ today announced Homefront, a new First Person Shooter from Kaos Studios. Penned by John Milius (Apocalypse Now, Red Dawn), Homefront is set ten years into a global energy crisis, and follows the American Civilian Resistance as they fight to reclaim their homeland from an oppressive North Korean occupation. With the fourth largest standing army in the world, the now nuclear North Korea has overtaken not only South Korea, but has become a major internal threat to a struggling United States. Details of the occupation will be revealed in future updates, as well as having mysteries unraveled in the single player campaign.
Featuring a personal, story-driven single player campaign and a full suite of multiplayer options, Homefront is scheduled for release on the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC. Homefront will be unveiled at E3 2009 in THQ’s booth – number 5300 in the West Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center.
"Homefront isn't about going to war on the other side of the world or battling aliens from another planet; it's about fighting foreign occupiers in your own backyard and defending your right to live," said David Votypka, design director, Kaos Studios. "Homefront combines the unsettling notion of an occupied America with interactive, player-driven narratives to create a deeply engaging single and multiplayer experience."
"Kaos Studios is using powerful narrative and environmental storytelling to create a plausible, near-futuristic setting where the people of a once mighty nation must fight to maintain their existence," said Kevin Kraff, vice president of global brand management, THQ. "This harsh backdrop will be the foundation for an emotionally-charged single-player campaign and an intense multiplayer experience."
