Homefront: The Revolution (PS4/Xbox One/PC)

Postby [Prey] » Wed May 27, 2009 10:53 am

THQ has unveiled Homefront, a first-person shooter for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 from Kaos Studios, which will be shown at E3. There's currently no release date.

Set 20 years in the future, Homefront puts you at the spearhead of the resistance against North Korean occupation of the USA.

Developer Kaos promises a mixture of first-person storytelling and oppressive action sequences with the near-future realism of games like its own Frontlines: Fuel of War and (we reckon) Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter.

That means prototype drone weaponry and other innovations in amongst the more familiar assault rifles, RPGs, tanks, planes and 4x4s.

In addition to a story-driven single-player campaign, Homefront promises a massive multiplayer component, most likely class-based, which aims to match the faster pace of games like Call of Duty to the scale of things like Frontlines.

Look out for an exclusive preview of Homefront on Eurogamer in the early hours of tomorrow morning.

Really enjoyed Frontlines so looking forward to seeing more on this.

North Korean occupations of the USA? :lol:

But yeah, I liked the Frontlines demo, reminded me of my glorious BF42 days. *sniff*

Didn't buy it though.

You should have, it actually turned out as a rather worthy online alternate. You can pick the PC version up for almost nuffkink now also Jim lad...

I really wouldn't play it, my thirst for BF style gameplay is currently quenched by Project Reality, Forgotten Hope 2 and even ArmA (on warfare mode).

War with Koreans? Do they announce these games to coincide with the news or something?

I think it seemed quite good, the action could do with feeling a bit more weighty but it seems like something I'd enjoy.

KAOS Studios do the unthinkable with Homefront, PC only specific features announced...

PC SPECIFIC FEATURES

We thought long and hard about the additional features the PC community would appreciate and expect.

From a gameplay standpoint, we’ve done some additional work on the vehicles. On PC, you’ll be able to control all vehicles from the 1st person cockpit viewpoint as well as 3rd person. We also added additional control options for helicopters, to give those players looking for more sim-like controls something to get their teeth round.

There are three settings:

o Ace: Allows for the best maneuverability, but takes the most practice to master.
o Veteran: Balanced difficulty and maneuverability.
o Rookie: Pick-up-and-play level of difficulty, least maneuverable.

We’ve included a Practice Mode so you can get to grips with vehicle controls outside the pressures of a live match. No need in wasting your hard earned Battle Points!

Lastly, we added some extra vehicle abilities for co-pilots, such as a Recon function to the Scout heli, and we obviously support joystick control for all vehicles.

In terms of other gameplay changes - we introduced a Squad Management system for PC, with Squad based VOIP. We also offer Clan Support on PC, and we’ll be tracking more post-match statistics on the PC platform. As stated above, we’re a Steamworks title and we use Valve Anti-Cheat to counter cheaters.

We also feature Multiplayer Match Recording (check out the podcast for more info), and we’ll be releasing a Dedicated Server Browser Executable to allow you set your own private Homefront servers within 2 weeks of launch. LAN support in there as well!

Finally, a few tweaks you’d expect as standard - we optimized the UI to make it more PC / Mouse friendly. We support SLI / Crossfire configurations for extra performance, and we support 3D through NVidia’s 3D Vision if you have the appropriate hardware.


Makes a nice change. Cheers Kaos.

Unless the demo puts me off I will be buying this, purely because a cross-platform developer that actually gives a shit about the PC version deserves support.
