Kaos Studios' Homefront envisions a hypothetical future in 2027, when the US is in the grips of an invasion by a unified Korea. The multiplayer component takes place during the first days of the conflict, two years earlier, in 2025. Unlike the single-player campaign's guerrilla-based combat, the multiplayer represents large-scale war. There are helicopters, tanks, drones and plenty of other expensive futuristic technology to play with.

Been there, done that. But Kaos has something extra up its sleeve: Battle Points. It's in-game currency that allows players to call in vehicles, resupply themselves with ammunition and deploy special attack and reconnaissance drones -- and it's entirely score-based, so you don't have to be The Terminator to actually affect what's going on in a given match.

SOURCE

shame on you kaos. 32 players............................

I am cautiously excited about this game. Fuels of war was a good first attempt, but the lack of iron sights killed that game for me.

Battle points sound interesting. Better than kill/point streaks of mw2/moh, and better than commander assets in bf2, and better than unlimited callins of bc2.

is it just me or do you feel this game could be dominated by people quick scoping with a m95?

I really enjoyed Fuels of War. Sadly it had some really bad jerkiness going on when flying....I still loved it though.

I feel like the game should have been much successful than it was. I mean using those RC cars and choppers was a blast in the urban map with skyscrapers....can't remember it's name.

I always felt like FFOW took off where Desert Combat left off (makes sense, considering they were the guys involved). I just may go ahead and reinstall it if there are any players on servers....

Looks like there is one server with 16 people playing on Solar Farm. That map was great.

Also LOL @ unified Korea invading us. That would be rich.

yep, stuff you see in upcoming FPSs Fuels of War already done it. A lot of people missed out on great game because EA/Activision name wasn't on the cover.

Korea invading the USA? I don't see it happening... Almost as silly as the Russians invading the USA in MW2...

We have been pretty much holding SK's hand for the last 50 years.

Anyways, that settles it, I'm FFOW tomorrow. Too tired to play tonight.

Actually if you read up on it, the US was in the midst of a major depression and major internal unrest. That is how the Koreans were able to invade. We had slashed are forces to nothing and were unable to defend ourselves due to internal unrest. So it is plausible, just not likely.
Oh forgot about the EMP blast. Yea that could smart.

Interesting looking game.

Oh coming out February 22, 2011. Hmmm.

Steam has a great video on their page.
