This is one game that I want for sure. Sure we have all of these war themed games out there, but none are based on U.S. soil. Homefront really puts war in a different light. Kind of reminds me of Red Dawn, I liked that movie and I hear they’re making a remake sadly…
THQ Inc. today announced that Homefront™, the latest FPS from Kaos Studios®, has passed the gold master stage of development and entered manufacturing. A multiple award winner at E3 2010, Homefront has captured the imagination of the gaming public, and has proved to be one of the most anticipated releases of 2011 as the scheduled March 15th release date nears.
“Homefront is set to become one of THQ’s most successful original IP launches”
"Homefront is set to become one of THQ’s most successful original IP launches," said Danny Bilson, EVP Core Games, THQ. "The team at Kaos have spent three years building an FPS that competes with the very best, offering a thrilling and original single player experience and hundreds of hours of multiplayer.”
In advance of release, THQ is preparing hundreds of dedicated servers in multiple locations across the globe to support Homefront’s epic multiplayer mode.
“We’re providing dedicated servers for both console and PC versions of the game,” said Drew Como, Director of Infrastructure, THQ. “Dedicated servers allow us to support 32-players on large maps with infantry, vehicles and drones, and level the playing field compared to titles that rely on user-hosted games. We know how important this is to the FPS community, and we’re looking forward to seeing their reaction on March 15th.”
Homefront is scheduled for release on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION® 3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC on March 15 2011 in North America and Continental Europe, March 17 in Australia, and March 18 in the UK.
