E3 2014 – Homefront: The Revolution Announced

June 3, 2014

Crytek has announced that is is working on Homefront: The Revolution, a sequel to THQ’s 2011 shooter Homefront. The game will follow on from its predecessor, pitching players in a near future Philadelphia occupied by North Korean troops. It is being developed by Crytek Nottingham, formerly known as Free Radical Design and previously responsible for the Timesplitters series, and will utilise the Cryengine.

It is expected to be released on Xbox One, Playstation 4, PC, Mac and Linux in 2015.

The game promises to provide a relatively unscripted open-world experience, with an emphasis on guerrilla warfare. “…Within the open world structure,” said David Stenton, Game Producer at Crytek Nottingham, “you will have to master the art of guerrilla warfare and use sabotage, assassination, deception, infiltration and hit-and-run tactics to erode your enemy‚Äôs iron grip on the city.”

Crytek Game Director Hasit Zala 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.”

Crytek obtained the rights to the Homefront name for $500,000 as part of THQ’s bankruptcy auction in early 2013.

More details will be revealed at next week’s E3 convention.
