Homefront Brings Mass Hysteria To PC and Consoles
THQ announced that the Windows PC version of the first-person shooter, Homefront, from Kaos Studios is being developed by a team at Canadian-based studio, Digital Extremes.
In Homefront, the year is 2027. With her infrastructure shattered and military in disarray, America has fallen to a savage occupation by the 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.

The General Manager at Kaos Studios, David Votypka has this to say:
“Digital Extremes has a superb track record in PC development. While the team here at Kaos is completely focused on the core Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Homefront, our partnership with Digital Extremes means that PC gamers can look forward to a version of the game tailored to the demands of the discerning PC gamer.”
Frank De Lise, the Executive Producer added:
“We’re building on the great game that Kaos Studios is making and enhancing it with specific PC relevant features. PC players will be able to set up and host Homefront dedicated servers and enjoy additional community features including clan support. We believe the core PC first-person shooter fan will really appreciate these features, which are becoming increasingly rare.”
This week during GamesCom in Cologne, Germany, Homefront will be demonstrated on the show floor. Homefront is scheduled for release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC during the early part of 2011.
