Are you ready to fight for your home on American soil again? You’ll get to do just that in Crytek’s Homefront: The Revolution which is set to release sometime in 2015.

This follow up to the 2011 Homefront from Kaos Studios and THQ will throw a few changes into the loop as this new title goes open-word.

Homefront: The Revolution takes place four years after the events of Homefront and sees the United States under the occupation of the Korean People’s Army. Philadelphia is now the headquarters for the KPA and the setting for this new game. You take control of Evan Brady, who is just your average American. As you join the resistance, you’ll be tasked with recruiting more soldiers to your cause, building bases and hideouts, and taking the fight to the KPA by any means necessary.

This game will have a very survival-esque feel to it as you’ll have to use your surroundings in finding a crafting weapons and using guerilla warfare to fight your enemy. You will be able to customize your weapons with things like scopes, underbarrel, barrel and conversion (changing the type of weapon it is).

Philadelphia will be a nearly unrecognizable place. Think of it as a modern take on a Nazi-controlled area during WW2 with displaced citizens, propaganda and security petrols. The city will have a day/night cycle as well as weather patterns using the CryEngine. Crytek UK also says that the city will evolve as you go on, which leads us to believe your actions during the game will have effects on the city.

Homefront: The Revolution will also see a separate co-op mode set in the same world. It will not be connected to the single-player at all.

Homefront: The Revolution is set to release sometime in 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac and Linux.
