'Homefront' (ALL) OnLive Pre-Order Incentives

Homefront is set 10 years after the economic collapse of the United States and follows the American Civilian Resistance as they fight to reclaim their homeland from an oppressive North Korean occupation, featuring a personal, story-driven single player campaign and a full suite of multiplayer options.

Homefront is set ten years after the economic collapse of the United States and follows the American Civilian Resistance as they fight to reclaim their homeland from an oppressive North Korean occupation. Featuring a personal, story-driven single player campaign and a full suite of multiplayer options.

The year is 2027. The world has suffered a decade-long energy crisis, and economies have crumbled. Reduced to a mere shadow of the super power it once was, the United States became the target of a North Korean takeover. American malls, suburbs and city streets are now battlegrounds as the civilian resistance fights for freedom. Featuring a compelling single player story crafted by John Milius (Apocalypse Now, Red Dawn), Homefront immerses gamers in an interactive and cinematic FPS experience where they will assume an infantry role or take command of a wide variety of aerial and ground vehicles. In addition to the single-player experience, Homefront will deliver a robust multiplayer experience. In a land stripped of freedom, the brave will fight for their home.

OnLive members who pre-order Homefront between Feb. 25 and March 14 will receive a free OnLive Game System ($99 value; while supplies last), and free immediate access to another THQ futuristic thrill ride, Metro 2033.

After signing up for the free OnLive Game Service, players can pre-order Homefront, which will be available through OnLive the same day it is released on all other platforms. Upon completion of a pre-order, the member will receive an email containing a promotional code enabling the purchase of a Full PlayPass to Metro 2033 immediately free of charge. When Homefront launches, the member will receive a promotional code for a full $99 discount on the OnLive Game System and will need only to pay applicable taxes and shipping fees.

“This is a watershed event: It’s the first time a game system has ever been given away with the purchase of a game,” said OnLive Founder and CEO Steve Perlman. “Homefront is one of the biggest games coming out this quarter, and we wanted gamers to see just how incredible is to have the hottest title playable with the instant-play, massive spectating experience on their HDTV that is only possible through OnLive. So, for the same money you’d spend pre-ordering Homefront on any platform, gamers get the platform with the game (and Metro 2033 to keep you busy till launch date). Quantities are limited. Get ‘em while their hot!”
