Homefront 2 The Revolution Trailer

A new E3 trailer for Homefront 2 The Revolution shows off gameplay from Crytek's upcoming open world shooter sequel. The clip is a little fuzzy and juddery, which is probably because it was captured from a Twitch stream.

Wow, that kinda sucks. Hopefully Crytek can release a non-streamed video, because this one really makes it seem like the platform is a little...stressed.

Holy moly, you guys aren't kidding. Can that frame rate be chalked up to weird encoding, or was smoke coming from that console while playing?

Or, possibly, it's for the reason Blue described.

If you ignored the shortness and absurd hand holding of the first game* it was actually quite a bit of fun with some fairly punchy moments. Hiding in the corpse pits to evade capture was one of the high (high low?) notes.

*Literally... One mission where if you stand between the guy in front of you and the guy behind, you'll never get busted sneaking around a survivalist compound. But move out of line by more than a few feet and you insta fail that part of the mission.

I could see a Red Faction Guerilla style game built around the theme.

Looks like it's running at 10fps

It's probably failbox footage.

7.5 minutes of crawling through torn up and abandoned shit and looking through a cellphone (for whatever reason), followed by 30 seconds of fairly bog-standard shooting.

Be still my beating heart.

i mean the game looks less of a travesty than the first one, i'll give it that

i'm probably one of the rare players that do care about plot in an FPS, at least these days. I mean Doom back in the day was one thing, Demon Shoot Em up, but for a game that is billed as SP and trying for some sort of "revolution freedom vibe," I expect a story I can identify with. Getting invaded by NK feels like a game written by the Pentagonô propaganda. It would make more sense to me if it was citizens vs. oppressive police state/government gone full-retard-crazy. Its why I identified with the original Deus Ex, it just really struck a lot of chords.

anyways rant over, its just a game i guess

I think this is looking pretty good, ridiculous premise aside. Those dirty environments look like they took a lot of work, and really add to the atmosphere, as do the kind of cobbled-together weapons and devices.

I personally donít understand how it went from the west coast to now the east coast. Especially when the Army was pushing the KPA back and winning. But I did like that the guy said this game is going to support 4 players Coop.

I'm not going to lie, plot is one of the last things I care about in an FPS. Few even manage to deliver it well. It's probably the genre it matters least to me.
That said, I was enthralled by Bioshock Infinite, and it wasn't due to the combat.
