Homefront Novel On The Way!

by on October 25, 2010

In a slowly growing trend, the upcoming title “Homefront” is going to have a novel released based on it’s universe!

Co-written by John Milius (Red Dawn and Oscar Award-winning Apocalypse Now) and Raymond Benson (author of two Metal Gear Solid books and multiple James Bond novels) the novel will be released in “early” 2011.

“We’re delighted to confirm the first element of what will become a vast transmedia strategy for Homefront,” said Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President – Core Games, THQ. “John Milius has already worked with us extensively on the Homefront game, and we’re thrilled to have him and Raymond on board as we develop our near-future world into other types of media. Random House is a great partner to help us reach an even broader audience.”

“Homefront represents a fascinating vision of the near-future,” added John Milius. “After completing my work on the game, it became clear that there were many more stories to tell, and this book will offer a chilling look at this near-future world.”

We recently posted some impressions of the Homefront multiplayer component, which you can read by clicking here.

Homefront is due out for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in March 2011.
