Crytek just announced a sequel to the first Homefront title, known as Homefront: The Revolution, a free-roaming FPS.
Coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac and Linux in 2015, Homefront: The Revolution throws players into a ridiculous near future dystopia, where the United States is brought to its knees by North Korea, who imposed a military occupation. Set in Philadelphia, which has become a police state, with surveillance drones and armored patrols.
To overcome their oppressors, players will have to engage in guerrilla warfare and use ambush, infiltration and hit and run tactics in thrilling un-scripted firefights, just like the original Homefront. At every turn they'll find a sprawling city, in which recruiting fellow revolutionaries and building improvised homebrew weapons are just two of the keys to creating a powerful resistance force.
Hasit Zala, Game Director at Crytek, said: "Homefront: The Revolution stands out from the crowd by immersing players in a world where they'll feel emotionally compelled to fight for their freedom. We're very excited to work with Deep Silver and deliver an experience that underlines Crytek's commitment to quality whilst tapping into the huge potential we saw when we first acquired the Homefront IP."
Homefront: The Revolution represents the first time Crytek and Deep Silver have worked together, with the two partners collaborating to release the game as part of a co-publishing arrangement.
"Crytek has an outstanding track record of creating AAA action games. Homefront is a fascinating IP with huge global potential. With Crytek’s technical pedigree and Deep Silver’s publishing expertise we will take the IP to new heights." says Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Deep Silver’s mother company Koch Media.
Developed by Crytek's Nottingham studio, Homefront: The Revolution harnesses the latest features of CRYENGINE technology. On the ground, players will encounter a brown and grey terrain that is still impressive because of Crytek’s proficiency when it comes to graphics. Lighting is absolutely impressive, cloth is blowing in the wind, and draw distance and general fidelity follows the studio is known for.
