The story of the new FPS, Homefront, is one of invasion, occupation and resistance. In the not too distant future, after the death the North Korean President, Kim Jon Il, his son takes his place. Over the next few years, he unifies North and South Korea and starts to invade nearby countries.
Throughout this period, America is weakening with a decreasing military force, further financial difficulties and a flu epidemic. This is when the KPA (Korean People’s Army) strike. Using satellite EMP blasts to wipe out the American electronics, including their defence measures, the Koreans begin their unflinching invasion. The game begins two years into the occupation of the US in 2027.
This dark vision of the future has recently been a little too close to comfort in real life. Kim Jong Il’s son has been recently promoted to a high ranking position in his father’s administration and just a few months ago we were chilled by the news that North Korea had bombed a South Korean island in what seemed like a test of how the world would react.
Thankfully things have been quiet on that front in recent weeks. It would have been quite an issue for Kaos Studios though if things had escalated. Hopefully nobody shows the game to Mr. Kim, we imagine he’s stilled pretty pissed about Team America.
