The terrifying future according to Homefront

Three years from today, North and South Korea will unite. Five years later, the new country will conquer Japan. And finally, in 2024 - after taking control of most of the world - Korea will declare war on the United States. That is our future... at least according to THQ's apocalytpic war shooter, Homefront.

After not hearing anything about the game for nearly a year, today brings a new trailer and one of the scariest pieces of swag we've ever received. If the story - written by John Milius, who did the screenplays for Red Dawn and Apocalypse Now - can live up to these promotional materials, this is a game we definitely want to see more of at E3. First, the trailer:

And here is a propaganda brochure we received in the mail this week. Are you ready for Your Glorious Occupation and the Fruits of Happiness? Better brush up on your Korean!

    @MitsuharuSan Would you prefer they change the skin color slightly like Capcom did in RE5? Don't play the game if you don't like it, and stop complaining.

    Great Trailer. Very Red-Dawn-ish indeed.

    Anybody else notice how unusually bright Mid-West is on that space shot of the US?
  • JohnnyMaverik - June 14, 2010 12:36 a.m.

    @ AustinParker Just a game, fuck off, with that attitude this medium will never be accepted for the brilliant platform for expression and story telling that it is. Also fuck Homefront, I'm sick of this shit.

    I was sorta disappointed with the US invasion in MW2. I was expecting more.
  • AustinParker - June 13, 2010 11 p.m.

    Lol guys it's just a game. And to me it looks pretty cool. They are using a good marketing strategy. Sure a lot of games go for the America invaded thing, but that's cause it gives a lot of room for creativity because it's something that hasn't happened. And unlike most, you aren't a soldier in this one. Your just a band of rebels defending your country. Sounds like Red Dawn. Could be good.

    Who cares?! I met my hot young girlfriend at fakestupidwebsite_noonewillgoto.com/trojanvirus It's a c00l place where young cool hipsters can just talk, or more if you're looking for some fun ;) lol.

    That was one of the best trailers for a videogame I've ever seen. Sorry, but I'm a massive fan of any concept that involves an invasion of a country that is thought to be uninvadable (to coin a phrase). America is one of those countries and that's why Red Dawn had an awesome story (but was poorly executed imo) and why the Russians invading the US in MW2 was one of my fav sequences in a game.

    So many of you people are getting way too worked up about this. It's not racist, it's not pushing stereotypes, and it's not pro or anti American or Korean. It's simply a fictionalized future. A fictionalized future is no more/less likely than a fictionalized history,a secret underwater city called Rapture for example. There is no way for anyone to know if either is true as it is simply a concept created by writers in a room somewhere. Were you offended by Bioshock? No? Then shut up and enjoy the ride. And before you go saying that we already know that Rapture never happened cause it's in the past stop and think. It's a secret city...if it happened, we wouldn't know. I'm not saying it did, I'm just making a point about how stupidly over sensitive your being.
