Homefront: The Revolution announced

Crytek and Depp Silver have revealed Homefront: The Revolution, the sequel to THQ's FPS. The title is set to release in 2015 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The North Korean military occupation has made Philadelphia a police state. Players will find "un-scripted firefights" and will be able to recruit revolutionaries, build homebrew weapons. First screens and trailer inside.



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.

I thought the trailer was nice, amazing graphics, good setting (i like resistance type of stuff).

What interests me more is the whole open world aspect of it for single player. I hope its more like Crysis/Warhead and Far Cry 3 type of thing going on but in a screwed up city, that would be cool.

I hope we see some gameplay at E3.

Seems Cryengine is becoming the UE3 of this Gen, which is a good thing. Can't Wait. A few of the games I'm most looking forward to are using the Cryengine, like Evolve, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture http://www.giantbomb.com/videos/everybody-s-gone-t... , etc

Nice trailer, still have a lot to prove but any game with a freedom fighters vibe is good in my book. I'd kill for a true sequel to that glorious game.

I think it looks quite good, but the odds are heavily stacked against it. First one was dire. Crytek UK (free redical) made HAZE, and crytek in general can't make a fun game if a gun was pointed at their head. But it'll look nice at least.

Why do i get the feeling every FPS from now on is going to be set in the future?

Free Radical are brilliant developers, their history has not been so good with publishers (EA, LucasArts) which is what lead to HAZE turning out not so good (there's more to the story than just that game):

Free Radical vs the Monsters is an essential article about how they went from Goldeneye, Timesplitters, HAZE, and Battlefront 3 (cancelled, but looked fantastic in the leaked footage with seamless ground-to-space next gen feeling).

They won't. It'll be near future first, where ballistic weapons are still at the forefront but the game still plays identically to the modern military stuff. Then once we've ran that theme into the ground like we did modern warfare and WW2, THEN we'll move onto genuine future warfare with more original imaginative weaponry and tech.

screens look like generic crap, trailer is way better. probably was taken before they switched to the new consoles. Anyways, my PC is ready for anything you can throw at it.

cool trailer, sounds like BF

I've never played the Homefront games, but the premise seems kind of gross. I mean one of the poorest countries in the world annexes a section of the US & turns it into a police state?

pfft.

Meh. Crysis and original Far Cry are one of the best FPS. Other Crysis games are also pretty good. Scripted games are hit or miss depending on the player. But more open games is the way to go.

Homefront (and FFOW) were original developed by members of the Desert Combat team.. so there's some heritage there.

Crysis 1 and Warhead where the best ones, 2 was boring and 3 tried to give us the semi-open but it still was a boring game.

Wonder what the actual game will look like since this entire sequence takes place in a tiny closed off street, just like the original Watch Dogs E3 2012 footage was a tiny portion of the city only.

What a stupid story. Why would North Korea choose to take over Philly? HOW would North Korea take over anything? Plain daft.

to be fair they wouldnt invade anywhere. they care little for their people or their country, i'd imagine they'd just use a nuke since they have nothing to lose, assuming their missiles could even reach the US.

I just recently (so no release hype involved) completed Crysis, Warhead and Crysis 2 for the first time and enjoyed them alot, especially replaying some missions on higher difficulty.

It's certainly silly & unrealistic, but so is lots of fiction. What really gets me is that the US is the oppressed victim here.
