Homefront Goes Gold
Prepare to defend America, Homefront has gone gold and will be hitting store shelves March 15. Coming from Kaos and THQ, Homefront pits players against Korean forces as they fight as members of the American Resistance. The story written by John Milius, co-writer of Apocalypse Now and writer of Red Dawn.
“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.”
“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.”
