Homefront appeals to 'CoD, Battlefield and Half-Life fans'

Kaos tell us why you should buy it

Kaos has made its case for why you should head out to the shops this afternoon and pick up its first-person shooter Homefront.

Speaking to CVG, studio GM David Votypka said his game has "the potential to connect with audiences in a way that most contemporary shooters don't".

He said: "I would say that Homefront is going to appeal to Call of Duty fans, Battlefield fans and Half-Life fans - it has elements in the game that would appeal to those audiences.

"It also brings some really fresh, innovative ideas and gameplay mechanics, particularly in multiplayer with the Battle Points and Battle Commander system - we feel like we're really bringing something fresh and new with the modern military online experience.

"Then on the single-player side the way we've done this common man's perspective of the story of the resistance... being out-gunned and chased and focusing on the experience of occupied America.

"I think it has the potential to connect with audiences in a way that most contemporary shooters don't," he said. "It's going to be an experience that feels different to what you're used to playing - in a good way."

Mixed reviews hit THQ shares when the game released in the US on Tuesday, but that didn't stop it shifting 375k in a day.

We gave Homefront 8.6 in our Homefront review and it's out in Europe today.
