At last week's THQ Gamer's Day event, we had the chance to go hands-on once again with Homefront, a game we've played before in the past. This time, however, we were able to play around with a handful of brand new features, including the Battle Commander, that got us as excited as ever.
"Of course, we’ve seen all this before in our in-depth Homefront multiplayer coverage, but new to this particular go-around with the title was the innovative Battle Commander system. Members of each team will receive orders from their unit’s A.I.-controlled Battle Commander to complete specific challenges for additional bonuses. For example, you may be given orders to take out a specific target, or hold a particular portion of the field for a given amount of time. As you execute these mini-missions throughout the overall deathmatch, consequently rising through the ranks to become an incredibly effective five-star soldier, the opponent’s Commander may order them to find and kill you."
Suit up, give us your best cry of "Wolverines!" and check out our Homefront Multiplayer Preview.
