North Korea Invades U.S. In 'Homefront"

THQ announced today that Homefront, a first-person shooter, is centered on North Korea invading U.S.

The story of Homefront sees an energy-starved United States collapsing into economic ruin, leading to an invasion by North Korea in 2027. Homefront puts players amongst the “American Civilian Resistance” in its battle to repel the North Korean occupiers.

The game’s script is written by John Milius. Milius is best known for writing “Apocalypse Now” and creating the TV series “Rome.”

I look forward to saving my “Homefront.”
