THQ's upcoming alternate history FPS that was previously only slated for a console landing has been expanded to release on the PC as well. Shown at GamesCom in Cologne, Germany for the first time this week, Homefront will be co-developed for the PC with Bioshock 2 developer Digital Extremes.
“Digital Extremes has a superb track record in PC development,” said David Votypka, General Manager at Kaos Studios, THQ. “While the team here at Kaos is completely focused on the core Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Homefront, our partnership with Digital Extremes means that PC gamers can look forward to a version of the game tailored to the demands of the discerning PC gamer.”
“We’re building on the great game that Kaos Studios is making and enhancing it with specific PC relevant features,” added Frank De Lise, Executive Producer, Digital Extremes. “PC players will be able to set up and host Homefront dedicated servers and enjoy additional community features including clan support. We believe the core PC first-person-shooter fan will really appreciate these features, which are becoming increasingly rare.”
Look out for Homefront in Early 2011 on PC now as well as consoles.
