If anyone cares
Remember Homefront: The Revolution? The grey and brown semi-open world shooter launched near the end of May, but it already feels like the title's long been swept away into the forgotten annals of video game history. Still, it's kind of nice to know that developer Dambuster Studios hasn't abandoned the release just yet, as a new...
'Tis truly the age of nostalgic Easter eggs. Already this month has seen the entirety of Shadow of the Beast stuffed inside, er, Shadow of the Beast and… Well, we probably shouldn't mention the other one by name just yet. But now a couple of levels from TimeSplitters 2 have been included in Homefront: The Revolution. Yes, it's...
Scores of scores
Do you remember Homefront: The Revolution? A bit of inside baseball here: your humble host was too busy animating cacodemons to chase up our review which should have been live today. In other words, even though it's written on the Push Square Towers white board in block capitals, we still forgot about it. Surely the game's better...
As you'd expect
Surprise, surprise: Homefront: The Revolution has a day one patch that comes "strongly recommended" by developer Dambuster Studios. Apparently, the update offers a "range of performance and frame rate improvements". In other words, if you want the game to run as well as you'd expect, you'll probably want to nab this file before you...
This game has a past that is not one of secrecy but of an incredibly rocky and public road to completion. Homefront: The Revolution has been tossed between developers like an expensive game of hot potato but it's somehow found light at the end of the tunnel with a release window finally locked in. In fact, it's so close that we...
Follow the way point! Liberate the stronghold! Win the war!
The series which, alongside uDraw tablets, crippled THQ is back for another bite of the Paranoid America cherry. Homefront: The Revolution, which was originally going to be developed by Crytek, will finally be completed by Deep Silver's new Dambuster Studios – a long journey for a...
Gun to know
"They should really make a new Homefront game," said absolutely no one ever – but it's bloody happening anyway. After a bit of a corporate cock-up involving THQ having no money and latterly Crytek having no money, Far Cry: Brown & Grey Edition is finally due out next year under the name Homefront: The Revolution. Deep Silver, who...
Deep Silver gives Dambuster Studios more time
It may feel like it's gone delay crazy over the past few days, but it's no surprise to see Homefront: The Revolution pushed into 2016. Regular readers will recall the game being announced by THQ many moons ago, before it was picked up by Deep Silver. However,
Deep Silver digs deep to acquire cursed brand
We’re not entirely sure why anyone would want to own the Homefront franchise at this point, as in addition to being a property with very little to differentiate itself from the wealth of other modern military brands on the market, it also appears to carry a curse. After killing off THQ a couple of...
Title potentially in tatters
Homefront: The Revolution, the first-person franchise revival by Crytek UK, only got announced a few weeks ago – but the project already appears to be in tatters. Widespread reports suggest that the firm formerly known as Free Radical has been working without pay chequ
More tales of woe for the studio
Yesterday, we reported on rumours that Crytek is in financial trouble, with staff going unpaid and hints that bankruptcy could be on the cards. Today, there are fresh reports which relate to the company's British studio Crytek UK, which was formed form the ashes of TimeSplitters and Haze developer Free Radical...
Pittsburgh is the pits
Homefront: The Revolution isn’t an elaborate rumour, as publisher Deep Silver has just confirmed the title moments after its box art leaked. As originally speculated, the sequel to Kaos Studios’ divisive first-person shooter is in production at Ti
Back from the brink, baby
THQ’s ill-fated first-person franchise Homefront looks set to be making a comeback after all, as box art for a release named Homefront: The Revolution has been spotted on a Swedish retailer’s website. While the listing has since been pulled, the title is purportedly due out in 2015, and is being published by Deep...
We're not sure anyone was clamouring for a repackaged version of Homefront, but that's exactly what THQ's release schedule has revealed
Due out before March 31st, the Homefront: Ultimate Edition will likely bundle the original game alongside its two DLC packs, "Fire Sale" and "The Rock". THQ has yet to make an official statement regarding the title, but expect a press release..

No, that's not a mistake in the headline
THQ really has been busy this afternoon, both closing Homefront developer Kaos Studios and, errr, announcing the franchise's sequel. THQ also closed down its Digital Warrington studio, in a "strategic" move designed to "realign its internal studio structure". THQ confirmed today that it has made a strategic realignment within its..
We love THQ, but we wish they'd shut up trying to remind us how relevent they are
You earn relevence through good content, something THQ has in abundance. You don't earn it by telling people to take notice every five minutes. That's exactly what CEO Brian Farrell has done in an interview with IndustryGamers though. We certainly think of ourselves as one of the big ones, he said. We had the..
With the NPD ceasing to provide hardware numbers, this month's report is restricted to software we're afraid
And it's a pretty uneventful month for PlayStation to be honest, with the interest surrounding the Nintendo 3DS. Interestingly, it was a Nintendo DS game that topped the charts for March, with Pokemon White taking the top-spot and Pokemon Black following it up in second. Homefront finished..
We feel like we're one of the few publications that actually liked portions of Homefront
We scored the game a solid 3/4, citing clever use of the game's perspective and a great multiplayer component. Other publications were less impressed. But while THQ's Danny Bilson was clearly disappointed with Homefront's mixed review scores, he did tell IGN that they matter less to him now than "a month..
Crytek's semi-sandbox shooter, Crysis 2, has jumped to the top of the UK sales charts, scooping the accolade away from last week's winner, Homefront
LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars finished up second, while the afore-mentioned Homefront settled for third. Last week saw the release of the Nintendo 3Ds, and naturally there was an abundance of titles for the new handheld in the top ten. No Ridge..
We imagine there are some smug faces around THQ headquarters right now
Despite Homefront not getting the best critical reception (though we liked it!), THQ's announced that their alternate future shooter has been a big success at retail. The game's sold one million copies across North America, Europe and Asia. That's in just seven days. Additionally, THQ has confirmed that 2.4 million units have..
As expected, THQ's heavily marketed first-person shooter has shot straight to the top of the UK sales charts this week
The game is THQ's first number one since UFC Undisputed 2009 released a couple of years ago. According to Eurogamer, it's also the biggest new release of the year so far. Staggering stuff. We quite liked it. You can find out more through here. The rest of the UK sales chart is..
If you've just got back from GAME with a brand new copy of Homefront in hand, well, set some time aside to download a new patch
Kaos has responded promptly to bugs found in the PS3 version of the game, fixing up freezing issues in addition to other problems. We've included the full patch notes after the jump. Check out our review through here. Fixes for intermittent problems accepting friend..
If Homefront's server demand is anything to go by, THQ's first-person shooter is a huge success
Apparently demand for the game's multiplayer has "outstripped expectations", leaving developers Kaos scrambling to put more servers online to cope. "Demand for dedicated servers outstripped expectations. Though we're thrilled by the popularity, please bear with us as we bring more..
We're quite looking forward to playing THQ's Homefront next week, but we're a little bit concerned about one aspect of the game: the treatment of the ol' U-S-of-A
Being Brits looking in at American media, we're more than aware of the jaw-clenchingly patriotic tone that can consume products like Homefront. We're praying that the game — which is about US forces being overthrown by a united Korean..
Let's get this out of the way: THQ's upcoming FPS, Homefront, is about the same length as every other first-person shooter you've played over the last three years
Its campaign is about five hours long. Are you surprised? You shouldn't be. As is always the case when a shooter's campaign length is brought into question, there's a furore erupting around the Internet. "If I'm paying £40 then I..
We're not familiar with the process of multiplatform game development, but reading the comments of Homefront's senior level designer Rex Dickson, it seems like developers want the platform holders to bend over backwards for every game coming to their system
Earlier in the week, Kaos announced that all future Homefront DLC would be a timed exclusive on the XBOX 360. It struck us a little weird;..
Dear Microsoft, We know that you don't bother spending any of your resources developing an identity for your platform and we're cool with that
Honestly, doesn't bother us in the slightest. We just wanted to an extend a word of advice. While timed DLC might be a big deal for Call Of Duty and Grand Theft Auto IV, it's really a total waste of money on most other titles. Take THQ's promising looking..
You'll need to make sure you pick up a new copy of Homefront if you want to take full advantage of the game's online multiplayer
Either that, or shell out an extra $10 to buy a new "Online Pass" code. THQ's upcoming shooter will be the second game to take advantage of the publishers "Online Pass" model, the first being UFC Undisputed 2010 last year. Most interesting about THQ's..
Perhaps the biggest selling point for Kaos' upcoming first-person shooter, Homefront, is its "why we fight" dynamic
The game aims to put the player in awkward situations, and draws on its North American setting to really conjure an antagonistic setting. While watching mothers shot point-blank in front of their children is certain to have an effect on everybody, moving through the ruined streets of..
THQ's bringing out the big-guns these days
The publisher, flowing with confidence after a series of great signings in recent months, reckons its coming first-person shooter Homefront is good enough to compete with the genre's best. Given the number of impressive signings THQ's made recently, it's hard to dispute their claims. Speaking on the back of today's Montreal studio announcement, Bilson said..
