‘Homefront: The Revolution’ moves guerilla warfare into open-world play

You are in Philadelphia in the year 2029, and it has been four years since the invasion and occupation of the U.S. by a foreign army. In “Homefront: The Revolution,” the sequel to “Homefront,” Crytek pushes its Crytek Engine hard into open-world play.

“We’re taking that guerrilla warfare scenario, pushing it into an open-world, and making that world a realistic and evolving place, where things are happening whether the player is there or not,” Crytek UK Associate Producer Fashat Shalim says in a Q-and-A on Xbox Wire. “Basically, whatever the player does in the world affects the environment and everyone that inhabits it.”

“Homefront: The Revolution” will launch next year. To read the full Q-and-A with Shalim, head over to Xbox Wire.
