In recently released footage of the game “Homefront,” Kaos Studios depicts the United States of America under foreign occupation after the
economic collapse of the U.S dollar. The game, which is rated mature, comes out March 3rd and will surely spark controversy.
Homefront was written with the help of CIA consultants who focus on homeland security. Tae Kim, a former CIA field agent stated, “we went through a
very rigorous, academic research process to make sure to not only look at North Korea’s current state, but to look at historical examples of how
things could parallel and turn events.”
The game is set in America in the year 2027 when a now-nuclear armed Korean People’s Army invades the United States. The game focuses on the
collapse of the U.S. and the subsequent occupation thereafter. The player is invited to join a group called the American resistance, a group which
deploys “guerrilla tactics and drone weapons” to fight the Asian occupation.
According to Kaos Studios, the main storyline of the game is built around not only the growth of the North Korean forces over the years leading to the
invasion, but also the economic downfall of the United States and the unrest that grips the nation before the invasion.

In Homefront, the main character is a pilot named Robert Jacobs, and during the opening moments of the game soldiers knock on Jacobs’ door and throw
him onto a bus. When the bus leaves the town of Montrose Colorado, Jacob sees a brutal public execution take place outside. Two parents are taken from
their child, pushed against a wall and shot in front of the young boy. Their brains spatter all over the bus window, which continues to drive away.
Later, Jacobs witnesses groups of people being herded off to labor camps as he glances out of the bus window. Eventually, the player escapes from the
bus when it is ambushed by American resistance fighters. This is just the beginning of level one, as the game continues combat breaks out in a Home
Depot parking lot and you use guerrilla warfare tactics in a suburban Colorado neighborhood. America is also plagued by a flu epidemic in the game.
