The original “Homefront,” which launched for the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 in 2011, was developed by Kaos Studios and published by THQ. Two years later, the Agoura Hills, California-based publisher went bankrupt.
“Homefront: The Revolution” will be developed by Crytek UK and published by German publisher Deep Silver.
“Homefront: The Revolution” takes place four years after the Korean People’s Army has invaded and occupied the U.S. The rebel group has made Philadelphia its headquarters, and the player’s objective is to take it back. The army is extremely technologically adept, so players must use advanced guerilla tactics to overpower their enemies.
"Our version of Philadelphia is an oppressed, heavily policed environment," said Fasahat Salim, game designer at Crytek UK. "As the player goes through each of the different districts -- the game is an open world, so you can bounce around between districts -- everything you do, each mission or side mission or whatever else, influences the game world and influences all of the civilians who inhabit it. Everything is being influenced by how you approach the game."
