The lights are on
Kaos Studios grabbed our attention with Frontlines: Fuel of War, but with Homefront they’re hoping to knock us off our feet.Homefront takes place in a future where the US has been invaded by a united Korean government. Like Kaos’s previous game, Frontlines: Fuel of War, Homefront is filled with cool, high-tech military toys. We got to see the Goliath in action -- a small tank drone that accompanied us through the battlefield. Using a pair of special goggles the player can mark targets for the Goliath, which will in turn fire heat seeking missiles at its targets.The story is told through first-person, interactive sequences in the vein of the Half-Life series, and filled to the brim with dramatic prescripted sequences that had us jumping back with a thrill. At one point, a friendly missile miss-fired and hit our encampment. As the main character ran through the battlefield, we saw friends and enemies lit up like the Human Torch and running around screaming in pain. If the game is filled with more scenes like this, then the game is sure to deliver one hell of a rollercoaster ride.What would happen if, in the future, the U.S. got invaded by a foreign power? How would the American population live? How would an army made up mostly of civilians fight back? Kaos is exploring these issues in Homefront, and we’re excited to see its answers when the game comes out in 2011.

Looks like a pretty promising game, also looks like it could be pretty disturbing too. I can't wait for more news.
looks cool not disturbing. how could it be disturbing?
based on what we did to Afghanistan i think if we got invaded we'd catapult their county into the sun
After seeing the game in action, it looks like Kaos would have to go out of their way to make this a bad game. It looks like a land-based Bioshock, which means it's one of the best games of it's console generation. Of course, it's really too early to tell if it's anything like that, but what I saw was definitely impressive enough for the finished product to achieve that title.
impossible we have to big of a radar net we would hit there armada before they got out of the yellow sea! if they got farther than that we could use are military bases in the pacific to attack there forward advances and attack soeul!
I'm interested to see more on this game.
Sounds like a good game, just hope it's better then Frontlines:Fuel of War was.
Looks great. I wonder if they'll stick to the 50 player multiplayer. Hope they make it more addicting if they do.
USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! USA!
Being a big fan of Battlefield, Fuel of War was a let down. I hope Homefront gets a multiplayer demo like Fuel of War did so I can try before I buy.
i saw a video interview as this a few days ago. like you said, it's like Half-Life with their lack of cut scenes in favor of a more interactive experience. i am very excited about this game and hope it does really good. can't wait to here more and see more trailers of this one.
What a great artical, now I can't wait to get my hands on this game.. I'm also stoked about fighting an different country not Russia, not saying their not fun.. When that first trailer hit a few day's ago it had no game play it just good to hear you guyS at GI got some hands on...
I still don't know about the game.
I'd like to see this game in action
Looks pretty deep. COuld be a great game if they pull it off.
kind of excited to see what this game will bring :D
While the story in Frontlines wasn't very well told, the action delivered. It was a fun game to play. So I'm looking forward to seeing what Kaos Studios does with Homefront.
As someone who has thought of joining this military, this game seems pretty *** scary.
