Homefront: Future History Trailer

One of the many games of 2011 I've also had on my radar has been THQ's Homefront, a story-driven FPS (with multiplayer modes, of course) developed here in NYC by Kaos Studios (Hi Irania!). While not a sequel to the excellent Frontlines: Fuel of War, Homefront uses topical and 'alternate history' events along with a John Milius (of Red Dawn fame) script to present a darker, more realistic tone to its North Korean-invaded US game world and how players get to stage a resistance. From what I've seen so far, the game looks to be a visceral experience on a few fronts and I truly hope that those in the FPS fan base "get" what's being done here and NOT simply snap this up because it's just another shooter where you can hop around like bunnies online or camp out with a favorite gun and chuckle away a few hours.

More videos to come shortly...
