Earlier today THQ announced on their Facebook page that Homefront will be coming to Australia on March 10th and the U.S./UK/Europe on March 11, 2011. If you don’t know much about Homefront, it takes place in the year 2027 and the Greater Korean Republic invades the United States. The story is being written by John Milius who is best known for being the screenwriter for the movie Red Dawn. Yes, the original in 1984 and the hopefully not terrible remake coming sometime soon.
The year is 2027. The world as we know it is unraveling after fifteen years of economic meltdown and widespread global conflict over dwindling natural resources.
A once proud America has fallen , her infrastructure shattered and military in disarray. Crippled by a devastating EMP strike the USA is powerless to resist the ever expanding occupation of a savage, nuclear armed Greater Korean Republic.
Abandoned by her former allies, the United States is a bleak landscape of walled towns and abandoned suburbs. This is a police state where high school stadiums have become detention centers, and shopping malls shelter armored attack vehicles. A once-free people are now prisoners… or collaborators… or revolutionaries.

Stand alongside a cast of memorable characters as an emotional plot unfolds in this terrifyingly plausible near-future world.
