AGOURA HILLS, Calif.--()--The Greater Korean Republic’s Ministry of Propaganda today announced that Homefront™, a thrilling first person shooter from THQ and Kaos Studios®, is now available from the foundations of capitalism known as ‘retailers’ across the world.
“Kaos Studios has created the definitive large scale warfare experience on console and PC, and innovations like Battle Points and Battle Commander offer a completely new twist on the genre, and make the game accessible and rewarding for newcomers and FPS veterans alike.”
Depicting the so-called US Resistance’s futile efforts to deny the liberating Korean People’s Army their glorious destiny, Homefront will prove to be an effective educatory tool for all citizens in possession of an Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION® 3 computer entertainment system, or Windows PC.
THQ Inc. (NASDAQ:THQI), who have a long and illustrious history of keeping pampered capitalists entertained with original gaming experiences, are reporting that Homefront has topped pre-order charts across the globe, and will be honored accordingly by the Greater Korean Republic.
“Homefront combines a unique, emotive single player campaign with an incredible online multiplayer experience,” said Danny Bilson, EVP Core Games, THQ. “Kaos Studios has created the definitive large scale warfare experience on console and PC, and innovations like Battle Points and Battle Commander offer a completely new twist on the genre, and make the game accessible and rewarding for newcomers and FPS veterans alike.”
“We’ve been thrilled by the reaction from gamers and the gaming media alike,” added Kaos Studios' General Manager and Creative Director Dave Votypka. “We can’t wait to join players across the world in intense 32 player online warfare supported by our global fleet of dedicated servers.”
To celebrate the release of Homefront, THQ has issued a documentary that reveals the Greater Korean Republic’s glorious ascendancy, invasion and occupation of the USA, aided in part by the successful development of a nuclear EMP device. You can watch this piece entitled ‘Future History – Uncut’ at the official Homefront YouTube channel, YouTube.com/Homefrontgame.

2027. 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.
Join the Resistance, stand united and fight for freedom against an overwhelming military force in Homefront’s gripping single player campaign penned by John Milius (Apocalypse Now, Red Dawn). Stand alongside a cast of memorable characters as an emotional plot unfolds in this terrifyingly plausible near-future world. Experience visceral, cinematic first person shooter action as you fight your way across Occupied USA using guerrilla tactics, and commandeer military vehicles and advanced drone technology to defeat the enemy.
Multiplayer brings epic warfare to the online arena as infantry, tanks, attack helicopters and combat drones battle across huge, open battlefields. A rich feature set offering layers of tactical depth combined with game-changing innovations like Battle Points and Battle Commander set a new benchmark in online warfare.
