Rise Up and Strike Back as Crytek and Deep Silver Introduce Homefront®: The Revolution
Frankfurt am Main (Germany), Munich (Germany), June 2, 2014 – Wage guerrilla warfare and reclaim the streets of Philadelphia in "Homefront: The Revolution" – a captivating new free roam FPS to be co-published by Crytek and Deep Silver.
Coming to Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®4, PC, Mac and Linux in 2015, Homefront: The Revolution throws players into a near future dystopia where catastrophic events have brought the USA to its knees and enabled North Korean forces to impose a brutal military occupation. Trapped in this American nightmare, Philadelphia – Birthplace of Independence – has become a police state, where surveillance drones and armored patrols keep her once-proud citizens at heel, crushing any dissent with savage force.
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. 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 Crytek's CRYENGINE technology. On the ground, players will encounter an environment that looks and feels truly alive as day turns to night and storm clouds come and go – an authenticity that extends to the strikingly lifelike expressions, skin and clothing of everyone they encounter.

the arcade shadow dancer is also nice, built on the same gameplay foundations as arcade shinobi, but a bit weaker level design. i also love rolling thunder 1&2, which are also very similar (6 Hours ago)
i played a bit of shinobi and kunoichi on ps2, but they are really just shinobi in name. (6 Hours ago)
game gear shinobi is more like the arcade version than the mega drive ones. (6 Hours ago)
I'd love some kind of real Sega revival. (6 Hours ago)
I like a bunch of Shinobi games. Even the Game Gear had great Shinobi games. Also the PS2 Shinobi was too quickly forgotten. (6 Hours ago)
my fav Sega game is Shinobi (original arcade). I still play it now and then. I think they have other, more recognizable and iconic characters/brands, but for me those games don't hold up as well today (6 Hours ago)
Wasn't really bashing it anyway. I love a lot of Sega stuff, and I think Shenmue is okay. Maybe a bit overrated is all. (6 Hours ago)
