Crytek: It made sense to go open world with Homefront: The Revolution, hopefully playable at Gamescom
Crytek has been showwing off their new Homefront game for the first time at this year's E3 and it looks more and more impressive the more we see of it.
Speaking during the Twitch E3 livestream Crytek explained that it just made sense to build an open world experience for Homefront: The Revolution. There was lots of talk of going back to the developer's roots offering many ways to apporach the game's challenges with Crytek focusing on discouraging players from taking the run-and-gun option.
There's plenty of crafting and exploring in Crytek's Korean occupied version of Philadelphia and the resistance will be able to fashion all kinds of useful devices from what they find. In the gameplay footage the player fashioned a mobile IED from a RC car.
They also revealed that they're hoping to have a playable demo of the game ready for Gamescom later on this summer.
