[BREAKING] Deep Silver and Crytek Announce ‘Homefront: The Revolution’

Looks like the Homefront franchise may yet be revitalized. Coming from Deep Silver and Crytek in 2015 is the sequel no one expected, ‘Homefront: The Revolution.’ See the full press release and trailer below.

Wage guerrilla warfare and reclaim the streets of Philadelphia in Homefront: The Revolution, a captivating new free-roaming FPS to be co-published in 2015 by Crytek and Deep Silver.

Coming to Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®4, PC, Mac and Linux in 2015, Homefront: The Revolution throws players into a near future dystopia. Catastrophic events have brought the United States to its knees and enabled the Korean People’s Army forces to impose a brutal military occupation. Trapped in this American nightmare, Philadelphia has become a police state, where surveillance drones and armored patrols keep her once-proud citizens at heel, crushing any dissent with totalitarian force.

To overcome their oppressors, players will have to engage in guerrilla warfare and use ambush, infiltration and hit and run tactics in thrilling un-scripted firefights. At every turn they’ll find a sprawling open-world city, in which recruiting fellow revolutionaries and building improvised homebrew weapons are just two of the keys to creating a powerful resistance force.

The Resistance flourishes far beyond the single player. Homefront: The Revolution supports up to four players in online Co-Op gameplay where you form your own resistance cell and become renowned as Heroes of the Revolution.

“Homefront: The Revolution stands out from the crowd by immersing players in a world where they’ll feel emotionally compelled to fight for their freedom,” said Hasit Zala, Game Director at Crytek. “We’re very excited to work with Deep Silver and deliver an experience that underlines Crytek’s commitment to quality whilst tapping into the huge potential we saw when we first acquired the Homefront IP.”

Homefront: The Revolution represents the first time Crytek and Deep Silver have worked together, with the two partners collaborating to release the game as part of a co-publishing agreement.

“Crytek has an outstanding track record of creating AAA action games. Homefront is a fascinating IP with huge global potential. With Crytek`s technical pedigree and Deep Silver´s publishing expertise, we will take the IP to new heights,” said Dr. Klemens Kundratitz, CEO of Deep Silver / Koch Media.

Developed by Crytek’s Nottingham studio, Homefront: The Revolution harnesses the latest features of Crytek’s CRYENGINE technology. On the ground, players will encounter a dynamic environment that looks and feels truly alive as day turns to night and storm clouds come and go – an authenticity that extends to the strikingly lifelike expressions, skin and clothing of everyone they encounter.

No Hitman At E3 This Year, But The New Game Will Have A Building Larger Than Any Location In Hitman Absolution

Never played much into the Hitman series, but this sounds like it might be great.

Wolf's Gaming Blog

ProductionConcept

In an open letter to to their fans IO Interactive have stated that they will not be showing off their new Hitman game at E3 this year, choosing instead to wait until they feel its ready to be unveiled, which I commend them for in an age where titles are often announced long before they’re ready to be.

“We know the worst thing is to hope for something that doesn’t turn up; so we wanted to let you know that our next Hitman is going to be under wraps for a bit longer. We’re focusing all of our time and efforts into creating the best possible Hitman game. That’s our number one priority and we don’t want to divert valuable resources to show something before it’s ready.”

However, while IO are not ready to head to E3 with the new Hitman just yet, they did want to give fans a…

Time To Get Serious

I am determined to make this blog into something that matters. It may not ever be an IGN or a Gamespot, but I want it to be something that I am proud of. I no longer want to regurgitate news that has already been posted by a dozen websites. I want to create original content that I enjoy making. My previously mentioned idea of starting a podcast is a part of that initiative. Eventually, I will have a fully functioning website, without “wordpress” in the middle of the URL. I am going to start doing full reviews of games. They won’t be epic thesis’ or anything like that, but just a few paragraphs describing different experiences with the games from my own point of view. The main goal of this blog/website is for me to have fun with it. If it turns into something, that’s great. If it doesn’t, and just stays this small thing, that’s okay, too. I just like to talk and write about things that I enjoy. And I intend to do so, with gusto. Look for my inaugural review in the next week or so. Watch Dogs is the first on my list!

Advice Needed: Starting A Podcast

While I enjoy writing up articles, opinion pieces, reviews and reposting big news, there is one thing I enjoy more: talking. I communicate much better via speech than text, which has inspired me to want to start up a podcast. I have a few friends that I think could form us into a fun and informative group, but I just need to figure out where to start. I need equipment, software and a name. I have no idea what kind of equipment would be suitable, especially on my very low budget, and I am lost when it comes to what software would be suitable for recording/editing. As for a name, that seems to be the most difficult part. I am open to suggestions from everyone. If you’re not a WordPress user, please comment on Facebook or Twitter. I need ideas! Thanks!

Pat Sajak: He Lived Long Enough To See Himself Become the Villain

tyleristhefuckingman

Would someone like to tell me why the shit this is news? Big Stack Sajak (which is how he will be referred to from this point onward) says that global warming alarmists are “Unpatriotic racists”. Lets break this down. How can someone be patriotic about a global issue? Secondly, how are they racists? More importantly, why are people taking advice from a guy who stares at a wheel all day and looks like he has a track record of sexually decimating choir boys? But maybe its a good thing. Scientists look like liars and those lines in the sky must mean something. I’m glad Dr. Big Stack Sajak is on the case to save us all. Hell, let the bastard host Cosmos and tell us that Saturn is actually a big wheel ripe for his spinoff, Cosmic Wheel of Fortune. In defense of his Mensa level comments, Big Stack Sajak said “Sometimes…

Oscar buzz for the breakout hit of 2014?

Everybody keep an eye out. This is the big one to watch for this year.

tyleristhefuckingman

While its no surprise that the film Million Dollar Arm has already grossed a staggering two billion dollars, word of Oscar buzz for the Craig Gillespie directed sports film is surprising but not unwarranted. With the movie sitting at 130% on Rotten Tomatoes and a 200 on Metacritic, we all should have seen it coming. For those who don’t know, Million Dollar Arm is the true story of Jon Hamm being fucking awesome and teaching some poverty kids to be more rad like him through banging bitches and high-fiving the president on a water slide. Jon Hamm is rumored to be up for both best lead actor and best supporting actor and the film itself up for literally every feasible category that applies. This also shouldn’t be a surprise because Million Dollar Arm is a Disney movie and when you’re the Disney-Illuminati, the sky is the limit. – TImage

Stuck In My Dome – Disgustipated

tool undertow

This song is the very definition of a “deep cut.” Nestled inside the final track on Tool’s debut studio album. Buried deep inside of the nearly 16 minute final track, “Disgustipated” features a creepy, death march-type feel. With Maynard yelling over and over “THIS. IS. NECESSARY. LIFE. FEEDS ON LIFE. FEEDS ON LIFE. FEEDS ON LIFE.” etc, etc. A fun anecdote about how they made the sound effect for this song:

[Chris Haskett, then with the Rollins Band, is credited in the liner notes with “sledge hammer”, probably relating to the “three pianos and shotguns smashed with sledgehammers” on “Disgustipated”. Adam Jones recalls a story in which the band purchased two second-hand pianos with the intention of blasting them with shotguns in the indoor parking lot of Grand Master Studio and putting the resulting sounds to tape. Apparently the man running the studio was happy as long as they cleaned up the mess afterwards. Since the incident, Tool has been approached by other bands claiming to have seen the shotgun holes left by them in the carpark wall].

Now, give it a listen.
