North Korea invading the United States? Are you insane? Well, a lot can happen between now and 2027, which is when THQ's FPS Homefront takes place. Harold Goldberg heard the pitch at a recent preview event, and this is how everything's going to go down:
"Using a classic Trojan Horse ploy, massive cargo ships supposedly bearing tens of thousands of U.S. nationals -- long imprisoned throughout Southeast Asia -- arrive on the West Coast. As the ships are embraced with open arms on these shores, out march the Koreans to take over San Francisco. To make matters worse, the U.S. is felled by a massive flu epidemic which kills millions, so much so that the population in 2027 is less than it is today."
