Homefront: The Revolution

Recommended Posts

If I'm going to quibble, the only other thing I'd like to see (and this goes for most games) is that some of the civvies see you sneaking around with a gun out and go 'fuck this, I'm off mate' before you cause a ruckus, with them getting more keen to join in as your efforts take effect.

They did mention that there'd be more general, global effects, but I just saw that one guy shuffling around in his idle animation and thought it'd be a nice touch.

Turns out that Deep Silver have formed a new studio called Dambuster (also in Nottingham) and also have bought the Homefront name and IP off Crytek.

Not sure if they've formed this studio/team, from those that walked out, though that seems pretty likely.

I hope the game doesn't suffer too much from this as it looked pretty cool from the latest demonstration.

I bet the guys and gals from Volition could do a tremendous job with this. Come to think of it, I wonder what they're actually working on?

Good news everyone! This is still in development:

Homefront: The Revolution will be released next year, Deep Silver announced today.

The release window was announced in a press release alongside the news Deep Silver has relaunched Crytek UK as Deep Silver Dambuster Studios.

The studio was purchased by Deep Silver last year.

Originally expected sometime this year, Homefront: The Revolution is now scheduled for a 2016 release on Linux, Mac, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Sorry to bump with nothing to show but I was thinking about this today and wondered what happened to it. Then I read my own post and now I'm hoping we'll see this in some shape or form at E3.

Fingers crossed!

Shame Deep Silver didn't show it at E3 at all. They're at SDCC this week, so there's a chance there might be something new presented. Or maybe they're waiting until this time next month for a proper updated showing of the title.

Also happened across a screenshot, that wasn't flagged up originally:

Had forgotten all about it. I think at this point they're definitely best doing a FO4 and showing some impressive footage before saying 'it's out in x months.'

Nice bit of shotgunning toward the end.

It's basically Far Cry in an urban setting. The end of the video even has the camera zoom out to points of interest and enemy camps.

Doubt it's a day woner but will probably pick it up £20.

I'm looks like its received a visual downgrade and the AI seems to be as dumb as a rock. Still looking forward to it mind you and I can forgive the dial back in visual quality but I really wish FPS games in 2015 and beyond would start to showcase some truly inventive AI. I mean Halo did it and so did FEAR. Can't be that hard?

That looks so generic they might as well have called it Videogame 2: The Videogaming - Videogame Edition.

Did anyone else who signed up using the link above get their codes through for the beta today?

They are doing an initial server stress test this Friday night before the closed beta goes lives on the 11th. If I'm around I'd be up trying this out with some Mukkers.

:lol: 

Well I tried it, I did both missions a couple of times and yea it's not very good. So so generic, gunplay wasn't satisfying at all, the enemy AI wasn't anything special, the graphics look dated, nothing stood out really. I've no inclination to ever play it again.

  • Bad frame rate
  • Muddy graphics
  • Low res everything
  • Stupid AI
  • Clunky gunplay
  • Clunky movement controls
  • Clunky bike controls
  • Boring missions (Go here. Kill him. Hack that. Go there. Kill him. Hack that. Go over there. Kill him. Hack that. Go over there. Kill him. Extract.)

It just has no redeeming features. Feels like it should have been an end of life budget release for the 360.

Damn, that first reveal trailer made it look rather promising. Guess the sudden change of developers didn't do this much good. :(

I remember the reviews for the original Homefront being mixed back then.  There were a handful of >85% reviews that miraculously managed to sneak through THQ's prerelease review embargo, followed by a shitload of <70% reviews from release day onwards.

 

Something tells me that the same thing will occur again (hopefully minus the Metacritic padding selective embargo crap).

Well I'm hyped for this. It looks to me like it borrows from the recent Far Cry games, but places that formula in some fucked up The Division - like city gone to ruin. I've seen a couple of plays on Youtube, and as the wife and kid are off to the in-laws that week, have placed my preorder with CD Keys. Viva la revolution (hopefully).

I hope they at least let the guy who made the decision to release this up against Doom, Uncharted and Overwatch, clear his desk before security escorted him from the building.
