Homefront: The Revolution is an open world first-person shooter video game under development by Deep Silver Dambuster, taking over for the now defunct Kaos Studios. It will be a reboot of the Homefront franchise and will be using the next-gen CryEngine. After THQ, the game's original publisher, filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy on January 23, 2013, Crytek acquired the Homefront franchise during a sale of the company's assets for $500,000. However, they sold the game to Deep Silver after financial problems. The game's current developer is the newly formed Dambuster Studios.

The game was released on May 17, 2016 in North America and May 20, 2016 in Europe for Linux, Microsoft Windows, OS X,PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

PlotEdit

Homefront: The Revolution is set in an alternate timeline in the year 2029, four years into the North Korean occupation of the United States. The city of Philadelphia, once the birthplace of independence is now a heavily policed and oppressed environment, with civilians living in fear as the Korean People's Army patrol multiple districts in the city. In the city, a rebellion is brewing and the resistance grows stronger, being led by Jack Parrish, the leader of the Philadelphia cell, Dana Moore, resistance veteran, and newest member of the resistance, Ethan Brady.

GameplayEdit

Compared to the original game, Homefront: The Revolution will be an open-world type game with many districts to explore. The player will have to scavenge parts from buildings and stashes to create/modify weapons and equipment. The KPA's weapons are all fingerprint-locked and as such they will have a sizeable advantage over the resistance. There will also be side missions where the player will be called off to carry out tasks like assassinating a high-ranking KPA general or steal a KPA drone. Another new feature introduced is the enhanced ability to modify weapons such as adding a foregrip or a sight in the middle of a firefight or to convert a rifle to a LMG and vice-versa [1][2].
