Homefront series returns with revolution in Philadelphia

The video game Homefront got off to a rough start. It was published by THQ a dying company at the time it was released and well if didn’t do too well on sales.

Fast forwarding from 2011 to today and we have a new game in the series: Homefront: The Revolution. Gone is publisher THQ and developer Kaos Studios. They’ve been replaced by Crytek Nottingham (many people here worked on Timesplitters) and publisher Deep Silver.

This time around the game will be an open world first person shooter that takes place in Philadelphia. As players have to lead the resistance movement against the oppressive government. The game will feature unscripted gun fights, so any fight you get into can change and you’ll have to change your fighting style as well. Ambushing will play a part in how you fight.

The game will even allow you to recruit new revolutionaries. Who will help you establish safehouses and build homebrew weapons to fight back. Homefront: The Revolution will also feature a two player co-op mode, where you and a friend form a resistance cell.

The sad news is that Homefront: The Revolution won’t be coming out until 2015. The good news is that it’s powered by the CryEngine, which is capable of producing some beautiful graphics. The game will be coming out on Xbox One, PS4, PC, Linux, and Mac.
