I won't be getting It but might give It a rent. The gameplay videos don't look that good In my opinion.

I've been looking into it the past few weeks. Dunno if I'll get it, there's a lot of stuff coming soon.

I like the idea of someone's blip showing on the map when they take a big lead, which will be a feature of MP.

I've been following this for a while and and i'm liking the look of it, it looks good and it seems to play well.

I think there's a decent size gameplay video floating around, i'll see if i can dig it up for anyone that hasn't seen it.

Conal, why don't you put some information and some videos in your original post if you're going to make a topic about it? That way people who haven't heard about can answer your question.

I probably wont get it but I suppose the setting makes it slightly different to all the other war FPS's out there.

Definitely buying it. I'm just loving the environment we'll be battling in and the animations looks badass, especially how the enemies get thrown up in the air after an explosion.

This is the best gameplay video i could find so far.

Definitely a buy for me also. Been following it for awhile, you just beat me to making a topic Conal. I love how your actually a small force compared to some massive army and your fighting for survival basically. Love how the MP looks aswell.

Description:

QUOTE
The year is 2027. The world as we know it is unraveling after fifteen years of economic meltdown and widespread global conflict over dwindling natural resources.

A once proud America has fallen, her infrastructure shattered and military in disarray. Crippled by a devastating EMP strike, the USA is powerless to resist the ever expanding occupation of a savage, nuclear armed Greater Korean Republic.

Abandoned by her former allies, the United States is a bleak landscape of walled towns and abandoned suburbs.  This is a police state where high school stadiums have become detention centers, and shopping malls shelter armored attack vehicles. A once-free people are now prisoners… or collaborators… or revolutionaries.

Join the Resistance, stand united and fight for freedom against an overwhelming military force in Homefront’s gripping single player campaign penned by John Milius (Apocalypse Now, Red Dawn). Stand alongside a cast of memorable characters as an emotional plot unfolds in this terrifyingly plausible near-future world. Experience visceral, cinematic first-person shooter action as you fight your way across Occupied USA using guerrilla tactics, and commandeer military vehicles and advanced drone technology to defeat the enemy.

Multiplayer brings epic warfare to the online arena as infantry, tanks, attack helicopters and combat drones battle across huge, open battlefields. A rich feature set offering layers of tactical depth combined with a game-changing innovation in the multiplayer space will set a new benchmark in online warfare.

Marketing Bullets:

• Discover a terrifyingly plausible near-future world  – the familiar has become alien in this nightmare vision of Occupied USA

• Fight for a cause – join a cast of memorable characters as your resistance cell wages a guerrilla war against overwhelming military odds in the name of Freedom

• Witness the human cost of war – a gripping story from the pen of John Milius is told through immersive, interactive 1st person cut scenes

• Experience explosive FPS gameplay – battle through a dynamic mix of infantry and vehicle combat in a gripping single player campaign boasting intense, memorable set pieces

• Take the battle online – experience large scale multiplayer action like never before in epic infantry and vehicle warfare

This will be one of the big sleeper hits from the first half of 2011!!

A lot of people really have no clue that this will be a total different game then COD or Battlefield series.

No run and gun, but sneaky assaults with limited ammunition so that you're always will be looking over your shoulder... cool.gif .

A game that you'll be fully emotional envolved... This will of course be one for the more adult players, none of those cry babies...

It looks like something in between Battlefield and Call of Duty with their own twist... vehicle aspect and 'total warfare' idea that is behind Battlefield and the really quick, fast paced Call of Duty gameplay. And here and there their own twists and features. I don't expect anything mindblowing but just a decent/good shooter as it seems.

It will be the gameplay (certainly in single player) and the atmosphere which will be mindblowing....

How will it be mindblowing? It looks well crafted, mind you... but I don't see anything brilliant behind it. It borrows alot of elements from Half Life 2 to be honest concerning the whole opressed and depressing atmosphere.

But I'll see, haven't played the game myself. Just what I think the game will be like.

If you say it has elements of half life 2, it's bound to be great!! Bearing in mind what a great game half life 2 was/is... smile.gif .

But just wait and see... Like you said before, will have to play it for a few hours to have a opinion...

No, they are the ones that made frontlines. Metro 2033 and this are published by the same company, THQ.
