Homefront PC Details

The Homefront Website has a load of new details on the PC edition of Homefront, the upcoming military shooter in the works at KAOS Studios with assistance from Digital Extremes (thanks Dennis and SpectralMeat). They announce the game will use Steamworks, that it is available for pre-purchase on Steam. They also discuss PC-specific features such as NVIDIA 3D Vision support, the choice of first- or third-person perspective when operating vehicles, three different realism levels for piloting helicopters, extra vehicle abilities for co-pilots, support for flight controllers, multiplayer match recording, a dedicated server browser executable, LAN support, SLI/Crossfire support, and more. There's also a FAQ that talks about support for 32-player multiplayer games, lack of Linux support, spectator support, a repeat of the previously released system requirements, and more. Also noteworthy is a confirmation of plans to release the dedicated server software. Update: This story originally had an inaccurate comment about DRM which has been removed. Apologies for causing any confusion.

The prequel novel for this game will be terrifying to you, then. It goes into a lot of detail as to how it happened, and while the actual journey of the main character is a bit off and the writing isn't of the highest quality, the actual concept leading up to the invasion is really well thought-out. They tick all the boxes, in my mind, that would lead to a feasible land invasion of the US.

ROFLMAO! This game is a wet dream for all the right-wing conspiracy kooks. A land invasion and occupying force is something that would never ever happen...ever. I love "what if" scenarios as much as the next guy, but this stretches the imagination beyond anything even remotely possible, so I can't suspend my disbelief and get into it.

3billion chinese, 300million americans. Conceivable, at least, if the chinese found a reason to go to war with us. I'm sure the japanese said the same thing prior to ww2
