Four years into the brutal military occupation, America is on its knees. Philadelphia – once the birthplace of Independence – has become a ghetto, where surveillance drones and armoured patrols keep the population at heel, crushing any dissent with savage force. Her once-proud citizens live in a police state, forced to collaborate just to survive, their dreams of freedom long since extinguished.

    But in the badlands of the Red Zone, in the bombed out streets and abandoned subways, a Resistance is forming. A guerrilla force, determined to fight for their freedoms despite overwhelming odds and ignite the second American Revolution. But Freedom always has a price…

    Homefront: The Revolution is a free-roam first person shooter where you must lead the Resistance movement in guerrilla warfare against a superior military force. A sprawling city responds to your actions – you and your Resistance Cell can inspire a rebellion on the streets and turn Occupation into Revolution, as oppressed civilians take up the fight.

    But your enemy has the advantage – superior technology, firepower, heavy armour and air support. You must learn the art of guerrilla warfare – ambush, sabotage, infiltration, deception – and fight a running battle through the war-ravaged suburbs of Philadelphia.

    And the single player campaign is just the start – in Co-Op you and your friends can form your own Resistance Cell and become renowned as Heroes of the Revolution.

    Homefront: The Revolution brings the streets of Philadelphia to life in spectacular style thanks to the power of CRYENGINE. Crytek’s game-creation technology advances into new territory as its real-time lighting heritage is extended to dynamic and procedural weather systems that combine with a full day-night cycle using physically consistent lighting-values. On the ground, players will simply experience a deeper immersion in an environment that feels and looks alive at every turn – an authenticity that extends to the strikingly lifelike expressions, skin and clothing of everyone they encounter; friend or foe. In a city that looks this good, every last block is definitely worth fighting for.
