Didn't everyone hate the first Homefront?
This trailer says PS4 and Xbox One only, but GameSpot's interview with CryTek's UK game designer Fasahat Salim ends stating "Homefront: The Revolution is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC sometime in 2015."
So needless to say, I'm a bit confused here. Game sounds interesting though. It will be open world guerrilla style combat, as open conflicts become impossible after the KPA captures Philadelphia. There will also be a morality system via "uprising points", sounding similar to what Freedom Fighters had. There will be crafting as well, including make shift Molotov cocktails and RC car bombs.
It sounds like it will be a more fleshed out full length campaign too, vs the short campaign the first had. The only thing GameSpot thought a bit odd was the dichotomy of the protagonist being an every man, ordinary hero with no training, yet you can breeze through combat as if he's a veteran.
At any rate, I hope this comes to PC, even if on a staggered schedule like we often see in multi platform titles. I enjoyed the first, even though it was very short and had one annoying continuous enemy respawn segment. I guess that answers your somewhat smug and assuming question Rhino.
I miss chaos studios.
This was an awesome game.
I never finished homefront, after a while got bored or something.
It had a spirit of frontlines but, idk was lackluster.
Oh look, a brown/grey military shooter where the enemies are one of 3 typical popular enemies for brown/grey military shooters.
Maybe you'll only be able to equip a single primary gun and secondary gun, and spend your entire game chest slamming cover.
So now the game is being bashed for it's color scheme and number of weapons you can carry? And you're calling the GAME "typical". Sounds like the typical meta rant to me. Speaking of which, there are actually mixed reviews of Homefront 1 on meta ranging from unrealistically low, to very positive, and the low ones are chock full of just this kind of exaggerated nonsense.
I wouldn't expect a game with a premise like this to feature scrapping resistance fighters carrying an armory on their backs, or a posh colored world for that matter. Though there was really nothing wrong with the color palette of the last one. They're only showing specific scenes here as well, not the whole game world.
Regardless what anyone thinks, this is being developed by quite a different team. Let's not judge it till we see it.
Frontlines wasn't bad, but I didn't really care for the forced mp style power struggles that were often back and forth high maintenance affairs. It's UE3 graphics also demonstrated pretty bad texture flickering and hitching in places, even on recommended spec. However I loved their use of mechs for combat. It's another game that didn't receive very favorable reviews though.
In alternate reality type games, I have to say Freedom Fighters and Wolfenstein: The New Order are hard to top. Freedom Fighters had a simple but effective squad command system too, and it's one game of this type that got pretty high ratings and deserved them.
I actually enjoyed playing it lol, But yes there was a lot of hate\dislike of sorts for it.
Looking forward to a 2nd one.. 1st one had some thing different and story was to close to comfort for some.
I really enjoyed the first one. It was short and the maps small but I really dug it.
Best thing they made was the 1942 DC Mod. Sadly that was the first thing they made...
Excited for this one. Always meant to play the first one but since it was so short I wanted to wait for the price to justify the cost. But now its not on Steam anymore.
Looks like this will be available for Linux and will be the first title using cryengine ! I will get the game even though I am sure I will hate it.
