@XG247: We recently got hands on with a Pre-Alpha build of Homefront's multiplayer modes. We truly believe that this is something special and could even become the next step in online FPS gameplay. This is a game to look out forward to!
Homefront is starting to sound very promising indeed, lets hope they can deliver on this BattlePoints system you mention
32 players and dedicated server on consoles deserve my money need to support more devs using dedicated servers.
I need buckleys or something...
Games like COD with millions of fans run on those crappy pear to pear networks where you lag most of the time yet people shower the publisher Activison with money on every installment of a 1.5 version of re skinned game aka CoD franchise.. PS.Dedicated servers on PC and Consoles all ready sold on Homefront lets hope for a Beta soon. Edit: At HeavenlySnipes yes KZ2 is a great example of dedicated servers
people act as if this iss the first game to have 32 people on dedicated servers. Well probably if you only play the 360.
Sounds like I'll pass. Being able to spawn to your squad kills tactical play (((IMO))) and the ability to use points to get ammo, drones, and even vehicles also sounds silly to me. I like games that are more tactical than arcade-like.
I can't wait. I love this developer. Front Lines Fuel of War was a great game. It was buried by bigger games and missed out by alot of gamers.
First of all the embedded video is unwatchable, it's loads every 3 seconds. Secondly, this video is weeks old and it's on You Tube Third, the animation is janky and weird. Watch (if you can) how the soldiers run and how choppy the tank turret looks when it turns.
Front lines was garbage. I hope this game is exactly opposite of it. This game looks good graphically though.
The games description sounds exactly like frontlines. 'drones' and all. I want a game that has a dynamic community element something like MAG meets Planetside meets COD. That will be the game of the century. Don't know why anyone won't make it though.
but im betting it will have a very short(CoD short) single player element, since they obviously have alot of the focus on the multiplayer. Lately alot of the FPS out there that have heavy focus on multiplayer and to me only use the single player as basically a tutorial to get you started. So if they are focusing on the multiplayer then i will have to pass. dont get me wrong it does bring replay value to a game but sometimes it feel like all the developers are jumping on the multiplayer focus bandwagon.. and yes i do play multiplayer online
Holy shit at this video! I live in Fort Collins CO!
Crazy! Did you see your house in the video?
Ha, no, didn't see my house. In fact, none of that really looked familiar. Wonder if its even remotely close to a real location.
brink is going to be the next step in online fps gameplay. homefront looks like it has been done before in all fps PC games - ever.
Looks good but Frontlines was garbage so i'll remain skeptical for now. I don't know why people rave on about dedicated servers all the time. Yes they're better in theory but it depends where the servers are, and where the people you're playing against are. Left 4 Dead uses dedicated servers and it's always laggy because you're often playing with people in distant countries.
LOL you need to read a help guide. you can stick in servers that are in your area. You should have a community website that lists some good servers then stick in the IP address. People rave about dedicated servers because it lets you choose who you want to play, where you want to play, for the best online experience possible. Once you get it working you'll see why. Later on you can get mods and choose servers that have those mods. It is really giving choice to the player.
