Homefront PC Port Being Handled by Digital Extremes; Dedicated Servers Promised

THQ has announced that PC version of its upcoming shooter Homefront will be ported by Digital Extremes (Dark Sector, BioShock 2 multiplayer), while primary developer Kaos Studios focuses on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game.


For the PC version, THQ is promising "dedicated servers and enjoy additional community features including clan support," which according to THQ executive producer Frank De Lise, "are becoming increasingly rare" and that "the core PC first-person-shooter fan will really appreciate these features."

It remains to be seen if the title will be successful enough to warrant clan support and dedicated servers, but the initial responses out of E3 2010 were positive.

Homefront explores a grim-look at a future where North Korean forces have invaded and occupied America. Players will join the resistance movement and fight back against the occupying forces.
