If you missed the news yesterday, the sequel to Kaos Studios’, Homefront, has been announced for a 2015 release and is in development at Crytek UK for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.

One of mine, and many other’s main gripe with the original Homefront was that the main storyline was just too darn short. Well, as you already know, Homefront: The Revolution is an open world game, but just how long with the main storyline be? Well, according to the game’s official Twitter account, players can expect a story that is a lot longer than the previous entries’ which clocked in at around a 4-5 hour completion time.

In a question related to the game world itself and how people would react, the Twitter account notes that civilians and soldiers will go about their daily business and will respond to the choices you make in the game world. As noted in the Kotaku preview for the game, civilians at this point in time cannot be harmed and are not a major focus of the game right now.

David Stenton, a producer at Crytek told Kotaku, “We’re not focusing too much on the politics, or delving too far into the civilian aspect. In the unfinished game at the minute you actually can’t injure civilians at all. At some point we’ll probably take the bull by the horns and decide which way to go with that, it’s not plausible that we’ll release the game with no civilian damage at all, but it’s not integral to the experience. If we wanted to go down that route, it would be something we’d want to weave tightly into the game systems, cause and effect – that’s not something we’re doing at the moment.”

I’d have to agree with Kotaku that collateral damage should be something that’s explored in Homefront: The Revolution. We’ll have to wait and see if the developers add in such features, but for now, Homefront: The Revolution is sounding like a very interesting project. Luckily, we’ll get our first look at the game at E3 this year so be sure to stay tuned to OnlySP on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest on Homefront: Revolution.
