Homefront: London planned by THQ

Future combat in the UK? Yes please...

THQ is planning to release a version of Homefront that takes place in London following the arrival of the main game early year, CVG can reveal.

Homefront is being billed as "violence with consequence" by the publisher - and takes place in 2027, where a Resistance movement led by North Korea has invaded the US.

We had a quick glimpse at the title at E3, and it's looking stunning. If you're into FPS but getting a little jaded by Modern Warfare et al, it's very likely to be up your street.

The story of the title has been created by John Milius, who co-wrote war movie classic Apocalypse Now.


"What we're telling the story of is civilians fighting for their homes," THQ core games boss Danny Bilson told CVG.

"We've created this massive world of 2027. And it's global. We haven't got there yet but you're going to see Homefront: London later on in the franchise. This is not just a game in the US."

The title is set to be released on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in 2011. It has been developed by THQ-owned developer Kaos Studios.
