Homefront 'competes with the very best' - THQ

FPS set to be one of THQ's 'most successful original IP launches'

THQ's talked up promising FPS Homefront, claiming the shooter can compete "with the very best" in the genre.

Speaking alongside news that the game's gone gold at NYC dev Kaos Studios, THQ core games boss Danny Bilson said Homefront's set to be one of the publisher's most successful releases.


"Homefront is set to become one of THQ's most successful original IP launches. The team at Kaos have spent three years building an FPS that competes with the very best, offering a thrilling and original single player experience and hundreds of hours of multiplayer," he said.

On the FPS's "hundreds" of dedicated servers across the globe, THQ's director of infrastructure, Drew Como said he knows how important the feature is to players.

"We're providing dedicated servers for both console and PC versions of the game," said Drew Como, Director of Infrastructure, THQ. "Dedicated servers allow us to support 32-players on large maps with infantry, vehicles and drones, and level the playing field compared to titles that rely on user-hosted games.

"We know how important this is to the FPS community, and we're looking forward to seeing their reaction on March 18th."

More details on Homefront's dedicated servers emerged this morning.

The first Homefront review also turned up last night. It's good news.
