Entitled Homefront: The Revolution the game is currently in the works at Crytek’s Nottingham studio and brings back the dystopian future setting of Homefront with some free-roaming FPS gameplay. Set in Philadelphia you take part in urban guerilla warfare as you fight with resistance forces against a despotic police state.
According to an announcement from co-publishers Deep Silver, 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 open-world city, in which recruiting fellow revolutionaries and building improvised homebrew weapons are just two of the keys to creating a powerful resistance force.”
The game is set to feature 4 player online co-op gameplay where teams will be able to build their own resistance cells and gain a name for themselves amongst other revolutionaries.
According to Hasit Zala, Game Director at Crytek,"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,"
Homefront: The Revolution is being built using Crytek's famous CryEngine which has previously been used in the hit FPS game Far Cry.
Below is an announcement trailer. The release date is currently set for 2015 for PS4, Xbox One PC, Mac and Linux. More is expected at E3 which we'll keep you updated with.
