Homefront 'Battle Commander' Multiplayer Mode Hands-on Preview

The last time I stepped up to a system spinning a fresh pre-release copy of Homefront, I tackled the game's single-player mode. There I faced a gritty--sometimes gruesome--tale of rebels trying to break free from the shackles of a foreign oppressor.

This preview is far more light-hearted, albeit still riddled with bullets from a waging war. During the THQ "Gamer's Day" event in New York, I was given a hands-on first look at one of the game's newest modes: Battle Commander. Read more »

Homefront is the upcoming first-person shooter from Kaos Studios, published by THQ.

In Homefront, players are thrown in the middle of a near-future "What If?" scenario. What if America were invaded by a brutal army and put under military control? What if the familiar turns alien? As a civilian would you comply or resist? Read more »
