[UPDATE]Homefront: The Revolution Reemerges at Gamescom 2015

Homefront: The Revolution returns at Gamescom 2015 Banner
There was a bit of trouble, but it appears that development on Homefront: The Revolution is going well as Deep Silver released this new CGI trailer for the game, now being developed by Dambuster Studios. Not only that, attendees of this years Gamescom in Germany will actually be able to get hands-on with the game at Deep Silver’s booth.

Homefront: The Revolution will be an open world first person shooter set in the dystopian alternate near future of Korean occupied Philadelphia. With unscripted firefights and non linear gameplay, players will have to learn to fight against a much better equipped opposition using guerrilla tactics, scrounging up improvised armaments, and by recruiting others to the cause.

Plus, there’s an online co-op mode.

Not sure if the story continues where the previous game left off, but we’ll update when we learn more. More importantly, how closely will the game align to what Josh saw at E3 in 2014.

[UPDATE]Homefront: The Revolution is a complete narrative reboot and not a sequel. Too bad about that cliff hanger ending from the first game. In the new game, rather than a united Korean state taking over the US, “a humanitarian crisis has brought the U.S. to its knees under the brutal military control of a globally dominant Korean corporation.” More details about the story should be coming soon.

Dambuster Studios is led by Hasit Zala who is also Game Director on Homefront: The Revolution. The studio in Nottingham, UK is currently 126 staff, and the vast majority are veterans of Crytek UK.

Homefront: The Revolution is powered by CryEngine and is coming out Spring 2016 on PS4, XBOX One, and PC, Mac, and Linux.

A student of games, I play a bit of everything because I like to see what’s out there. Nothing better than first hand experience when it comes to knowing about games. Current game obsession: Anything MOBA (Paragon, Battleborn, Heroes of the Storm), except, ironically, the most popular ones, LoL and DOTA2.
