Homefront, the flawed 2011 shooter from Kaos Studios, is getting a sequel from Crytek. Homefront: The Revolution moves the action to the streets of Philadelphia. Four years after the Korean People’s Army has invaded and taken over large portions of the United States, the player character will be called upon to lead a rebellion, and fight for truth, justice, and the American way in open-world guerrilla missions. Players will be able to take on campaign missions in 4-player co-op and use a variety of methods to accomplish their tasks. In Polygon’s preview, designer Fasahat Salim demonstrated how players will need to remember that they are the underdogs.
If you’re gonna go in all guns blazing, you’re going to get hit with a lot of firepower in return,” Salim said. “They’ve got a lot of guns, they’ve got a lot of drones, they’ve got a lot of superior tech that you don’t have. All of these things may come together based on how you approach the situation. If you can get in and get out before they have a chance to respond with all of their firepower, you’ve done well.”
Homefront: The Revolution will launch in 2015 on PC, PlayStation4, and Xbox One.
