E3 2009 / Homefront kind of like Frontlines, but kind of not

The screenshots and video below offer our first look into Kaos Studios’ second game under THQ, Homefront, and as someone who liked their previous game, Frontlines: Fuel of War, I have to say it’s hard to really say anything much about them at this point. Homefront looks and feels a lot like Frontlines, and is even reusing some assets (a whole vehicle even), but has a distinct lack of those little man-controlled drones we love so much here at TVGB (ok, that may just be me). We do see a six-wheeler called Goliath that can bash through buildings, which is of course always handy, and a big drone that brings destruction from above. But while these are cool and all, they’re no substitute for flying your little choppa up a sniper’s butt and detonating it.

Homefront is being developed for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. A release date is yet to be specified.
