The game is being billed by the developers as a “captivating free-roam FPS” and is set to be published by Crytek and Deep Silver.
“Homefront: The Revolution throws players into a near future dystopia where catastrophic events have brought the USA to its knees and enabled North Korean forces to impose a brutal military occupation. Trapped in this American nightmare, Philadelphia – the birthplace of independence – has become a police state, where surveillance drones and armoured patrols keep her once-proud citizens at heel, crushing any dissent with savage force.”
Based on Crytek’s press release and the game’s teaser trailer below, players will take up the role of a citizen guerilla soldier and attempt to overthrow the powers that be by engaging in scrappy urban combat.
Hasit Zala, Game Director at Crytek, 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.” He added that the game will utilise the latest features of the CryEngine.
