HOMEFRONT: THE REVOLUTION
Publisher Deep Silver Developer Dambuster Studios Format PC, PS4, Xbox One Origin UK Release 2016
Now, we’re not saying the Homefront series is responsible for the ends of two studios and a publisher, but it was metaphorically standing around and looking shifty when the bailiffs came to Kaos Studios, THQ and Crytek UK. Undeterred, Dambuster is continuing this sequel’s development, a game stretched across an open-world Philadelphia under North Korean occupation. A Gamescom CG trailer plays up the potential of such a setting; a subsequent demo squanders it by ripping a page out of Ubisoft’s open-world playbook, our heroes clearing out a base and establishing a comms link to fill out the map in the vicinity.
