With the plethora of shooters releasing this year, we might as well call 2011 the year of the fps. But that might not be a good thing, at least not for the developers. Because when there are so many choices, someone’s bound to stand in the cold. Kaos and THQ are hoping their latest game, Homefront, isn’t the victim.
In the vid below the break, the dev does an excellent job at relaying a message of standing out.

According to Kaos Studios, there are too many shooters out there affording the same experience. Homefront is another standard.
“One thing we knew we didn’t want to do, is get into the model of making a modern combat/modern military shooter because that space is really crowed,” Rex Dixon, lead level designer at THQ said.
“If we were going to do something unique and something innovative that really matter, we had to do something different.”
That something different, friends, is Homefront.
