Homefront: The Revolution Announcement & Trailer
Coming in 2015 is a game that is sure to be popular. Take back the streets of Philadelphia with sneaky urban guerilla warfare tactics in Homefront: The Revolution. The new free-roaming FPS will be co-published by Crytek and Deep Silver.
Releasing on Xbox One, PS4, Windows PC, Mac and Linux in 2015, Homefront: The Revolution projects players into a near future dystopia. A series of catastrophic events have brought the United States to its knees. The Korean People’s Army imposes a brutal military occupation. Trapped in this nightmare, Philadelphia has become a police state. Surveillance drones and armoured patrols keep a close watch on citizens, crushing any dissent with brutal and final force.
To overcome their oppressors, players will have to utilise guerilla warfare tactics; ambushing and infiltrating in thrilling un-scripted fire fights. In Homefront: The Revolution, you’ll find a sprawling open-world city, in which recruiting fellow revolutionaries and building improvised weapons are just two of the key ingredients to nurturing a powerful resistance.
Homefront: The Revolution is more than just a single player game. Homefront: The Revolution supports up to four player online Co-Op where you form your own resistance cell and become renowned as Heroes of the Revolution.
“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,” said Hasit Zala, Game Director at Crytek. “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, the two partners collaborating to release the game as part of a co-publishing agreement.
“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,” said Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Deep Silver / Koch Media.
Developed in Crytek’s Nottingham studio, Homefront: The Revolution harnesses the latest features of the CRYENGINE. On the ground, players will encounter a dynamic 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.
