THQ has unveiled Homefront, a first-person shooter for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 from Kaos Studios, which will be shown at E3. There's currently no release date.

Set 20 years in the future, Homefront puts you at the spearhead of the resistance against North Korean occupation of the USA.

Developer Kaos promises a mixture of first-person storytelling and oppressive action sequences with the near-future realism of games like its own Frontlines: Fuel of War and (we reckon) Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter.

That means prototype drone weaponry and other innovations in amongst the more familiar assault rifles, RPGs, tanks, planes and 4x4s.

In addition to a story-driven single-player campaign, Homefront promises a massive multiplayer component, most likely class-based, which aims to match the faster pace of games like Call of Duty to the scale of things like Frontlines.

Look out for an exclusive preview of Homefront on Eurogamer in the early hours of tomorrow morning.
