Homefront: The Revolution Announced

Deep Silver and Crytek announce Homefront: The Revolution, an open-world first-person shooter sequel to Homefront coming to Windows, OS X, Linux, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The game continues the Korean invasion of the U.S. of the original with a guerrilla war set in the streets of Philadelphia. We have some screenshots and logos and the launch trailer, and the game's official website is online. Here's the announcement with all the details:

Homefront: The Revolution throws players into a near future dystopia. Catastrophic events have brought the United States to its knees and enabled the Korean People's Army forces to impose a brutal military occupation. Trapped in this American nightmare, Philadelphia has become a police state, where surveillance drones and armored patrols keep her once-proud citizens at heel, crushing any dissent with totalitarian 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 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 Resistance flourishes far beyond the single player. Homefront: The Revolution supports up to four players in online Co-Op gameplay 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, with 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 by Crytek's Nottingham studio, Homefront: The Revolution harnesses the latest features of Crytek's CRYENGINE technology. 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.

I got the first one for free, but I haven't played it yet. It's on my long and ever-growing to-do list.

I could never get past the idea of Korea taking over all of Asia and China being perfectly fine with it.

Hope they do something more interesting with the story this time around than trot out every single military occupation cliche.

Homefront, a video game also written by John Milius, is about a North Korean invasion of America.[20] One notable "easter egg" relating to the film is a large billboard at a school sport stadium which reads "Go Wolverines!!!".

Loved watching Red Dawn (1984) back in the day. I think a remake was made but I haven't seen it.

oh shi... Same director of Red Dawn wrote Homefront.

Wow, nice graphics! If it's anything like the first one, I bet it'll be a great $10 bargain-bin find too.

Okay, how are they even in Phili? What happned to the West coast where they had the koreans contained? I guess San Fran was to much to ask that they finish what they started there.

Though admittedly flawed, I enjoyed the first one too. I'll be interested in seeing how the new one pans out.

If it did not succeed the first time, just try it again.

I am one of the few people that actually liked the first one. Even in multiplayer. I will give this a go. Not a pre-order or a launch day purchase though. I liked the original but at the end of the day it was at best a competent shooter.

Than again, I liked Bulletstorm too. My taste in shooters doesn't seem to be line with many others if sales are any indication.

Why not the Chinese? Or Aliens? Or Iraq? Or the British?

Any of these are more plausible than North Korea. Bah, what the hell am I getting riled up about, the original Homefront was a piece of shit anyway and this will be no different.
