Kaos Studios' first-person shooter Homefront will be released on 11th March 2011 in Europe, THQ has announced.

It'll launch in the US on 8th March and on the 10th in Australia, according to the game's official Twitter.

Homefront is being aligned as THQ's big shooter series - its Call of Duty. Set in America's own back yard, the premise works around the "what if?" scenario of North Korea invading the home of the capitalist world.

THQ has a book co-written by the Apocalypse Now screenwriter ready for early next year, and it's so confident in the game that it's confirmed Homefront 2 is already on the cards.

Christian Donlan went hands-on last month.
