Crytek turns Homefront series on the head with stealth and sabotage

LONDON (Gamer.no): Not too long ago, the Nazis and the Second World War the main ingredient when would enable a modern shooter set our world. But then, one day something happened very special: Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was, and cursed with the way of ultra-modern warfare also within our own solar system. Since then, the focus has shifted more and more to the fictional firefights where you can explore alien surroundings, playing with springy arms and studying historical sleivspark in full rut. The THQ released Homefront would also be part of the fun shoot, with a progressive setting and an undeniable interesting premise, but it struck unfortunately never entirely.

Despite the lukewarm reception the original game did was Crysis developer Crytek still interested in the franchise when THQ held clearance sale last year, and this month the sequel officially announced that Homefront: The Revolution. Gone are linear bruduljer and again is an open world with guerrilla and artifact collection in focus.

The Saboteur

Homefront: The Revolution is, as its direct predecessor, set in the heart of the United States, where enemies and occupying forces lurking around every corner. It’s the fact that North Korea has seizures of more than ten years, and gets the idea that they should take over the world. With the list of countries to be silenced is of course the United States, and so it has realized that one must fight the power well into the 20th century. The plot of Homefront: The Revolution takes place in 2031, four years after settlement in the original game, and the U.S. population is more or less defeated. Amidst those who have given up, we find the game’s protagonist, one of many rebels who will not settle in with the new rulers. The premise is undeniably interesting, but the story need more than that to impress, and more than anything else is needed is a clear and strong protagonist. Visiting Deep Silver and Crytek in London we got to see the game in action, without necessarily being any the wiser about who they really played that. More than anything else did the developers obvious that it is an ordinary guy who, through stealth and sabotage going to try to overthrow the annoying occupiers. How you do this is supposed to be much up to you, and in conversation with one of the game designers, Fasahat Salim, it became clear that Crytek shuns original game’s highly restrictive structure:
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's a deadly drone that can kill you if you so much as thinking revolutionary thoughts.

– In the original Homefront was one literally hired through the game’s single player campaign, one enspillerdel which turned out to be a long series of corridors. This would we reject as much as possible in the sequel, and the Home Front: The Revolution will we give players direct control over how, where and when to confront the enemy. We also strongly encourage exploration, because it is a big, beautiful and interesting world, says Salim. The game will this time take place in tomorrow’s edition of Philadelphia, a city next to brotherly love can pride itself on being an epicenter of American history, constitution drafting and freedom clocks blundering. The areas you will explore will be dominated by enemies who have done their to cover for this: Here’s surroundings destroyed statues torn down and surveillance cameras mounted everywhere. The North Korean soldiers will also stand in the way of you and your life will be extra miserable for those who do not follow orders. This we see just seconds into a short but interesting demonstration of the game, when three orange-clad prisoners templates of a brick wall graffiti characterized as an armor clad guard careful attention.How wrong could we of course do not find ourselves in, and the main character is sneaking up behind the guard and break his neck with a great-sounding pieces. Prisoners run terrified off while we sneak on through the streets of Philadelphia. We have other hens picking.

Not a new Crysis

The road carries on through a couple of buildings and out into a clearing, where we can clearly see the goal of the mission in the distance a small fortress that is set up in the middle of town. Floodlights and watchtowers covers the edge of the area as the rain continue to torrential down. Like most Crytek game looks quite beautiful through and where the headlights penetrates rain rails also gjenlys up from the soggy ground. The gray concrete fortress looms high above the ruined apartment buildings in the neighborhood, and the city emerges as a gloomy, yet clean place. Alongside the many urban areas should also visit several environments where nature has taken over, much like Crysis 2 and 3 Games Designer Salim did not wish to compare Homefront: The Revolution of Crytek’s Superman trilogy:

– In many ways it is quite unlike Crysis, in the sense that one can no longer rely on super powers to survive. Invisible Truth and super strength Nanosuit offered is not part of the Homefront universe, as an ordinary man and guerrilla fighter must learn to know the city in order to defeat the enemy. You are, in other words no more than what you have around you, and without the many different aids found in Philadelphia may be impossible tackle enemies, because they have much better technology and weapons than you have. It is a very different experience, where one must be careful, vigilant and precise, he explains. Back in Philadelphia, we zoom in on a passing patrol car driving with our handy smartphone,much like Aiden Pearce , marking enemies and vehicles just like the Jason Brody has taught us .Inspirations from recent games shines through clearly, and there really is very little that resembles the original Homefront anymore. This is perhaps for the better.

Car bombs and bomb cars

After a while our trenchcoat-clad protagonist tired of waiting, and he quickly rips up a radio controlled car and a small bomb from the jacket lining. A few seconds of fiddling later and we have a tiny car bomb in hand. This is just one example of how to combine objects you find around Philadelphia, and although we can hardly expect us equally wacky combinations like for example in Dead Rising , there is hope for a more unconventional and playful weapons arsenal than one In the second shooter.

Car bomb connected matter up to our cellphone, after which we navigate the bumpy road to the fortress. We roll gently into one ignorant patrol car previously driven back and forth on the site and included it until we reach the enemy base. A button press later and a huge explosion goes off in the middle of Philadelphia. Done talking. The protagonist, however, is not completely finished yet, and pulls out a machine gun from his jacket pocket. Along with several conspirators, he starts to shoot loose on the disoriented and armor-clad enemies. Compared with the subtle and interesting driving just seconds before the shooting looks terribly boring, and the vocal civilians screaming and running the streets, often in the midst of the firefight, irritates immediately. The lesson rounded off at what eventually has become a customary way to end the game on disclosures, when developers zooms out and reveals more of your partners are actually other players – there must collaborate, and to the great gold medal.

Conclusion

Homefront: The Revolution has taken the premise of the original Homefront, and melted it together with a Watchdogs-like revolution, where technology and artifact gathering is central. Crytek has done well to distance themselves as much as possible from the linear game style that was fostered in the original game, and the open issue of Philadelphia can be exciting in stock. The game has a number of nifty ideas, and there was something undeniably interesting about the presentation of the American Revolution. The city itself looks very good, and everything from radio controlled car bombs to nakkeknekking characterized by a peculiar charm. The shooting that I am far more skeptical, but it remains to be seen how attached you are to machine guns and pistols. If one is to believe the developers are supposedly freedom high on the priority list, and if you can tackle any mission with chemicals, toy car and cell phone, I see myself more than satisfied with the state of affairs in Philadelphia.
