Ships Ahoy - Homefront

THQ announces that Homefront has invaded stores worldwide, offering Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 gamers the chance to play Kaos Studios' first-person shooter based on a near-future invasion of the U.S.A. by the Greater Korean Republic. The release is accompanied by this new trailer combining live action and gameplay footage showing the (hopefully) fictional future history that leads to a unified Korea, the invasion and occupation of the U.S., and the resistance that is the central theme of the game. "Homefront combines a unique, emotive single player campaign with an incredible online multiplayer experience," said Danny Bilson, EVP Core Games, THQ. "Kaos Studios has created the definitive large scale warfare experience on console and PC, and innovations like Battle Points and Battle Commander offer a completely new twist on the genre, and make the game accessible and rewarding for newcomers and FPS veterans alike."

Bad Company 2: Peak Today - 7,664 not a Steam game but it's how old now and it beat Homefront player numbers.

I'm not really sure why publishers bother trying to compete in the multiplayer military shooter space. It's very clearly dominated by CoD and BF. It would make more sense to cater to a less competitive market, like sci-fi shooters and whatnot. Offer something genuinely unique and compelling, rather than derivative.

Speaking of military online shooters, it's amazing how CS still dominates that market on the PC. Over 149k players today, after being released 10 years ago. How many people will still be playing CoD:BO or BF:BC2 in 10 years? Food for thought.
