The first person shooter genre is a very popular type of video game that some might argue might be somewhat over-saturated as of late. Indeed some of the most successful titles have been first person shooters and THQ is looking to get on the action with Homefront – a story driven set in a near future America in 2027 when a now-nuclear armed and united Korean People’s Army invades the good ole US of A. The game is written by John Milius, a veteran writer of war related material as he co-wrote the successful films Apocalypse Now and wrote Red Dawn.
Info about the Game
Homefront is speculative fiction, set in a near-future, post peak oil world that features a significantly declined United States, and a united Korea that has built a massive alliance in East Asia.
