THQ Homefront FPS Video Game for Xbox 360
THQ's Homefront is a first-person shooter for the Xbox 360 that challenges players to survive and impact a fictional future scenario in which America has been economically devastated and occupied by a foreign power. The year is 2027, and the world as we know it is unraveling after fifteen years of economic meltdown and widespread global conflict over dwindling natural resources. A once proud America has fallen, her infrastructure shattered and military in disarray. To make matters worse, crippled by a devastating EMP strike, the USA is powerless to resist the ever expanding occupation of a savage, nuclear armed Greater Korean Republic. Abandoned by her former allies, the United States is a bleak landscape of walled towns and abandoned suburbs.
