Homefront: The Revolution Looks A Far Cry From The First

Also, a fair bit like Far Cry

"Hullo!" hollered Homefront: The Revolution [official site] yesterday, poking its head in the door and waving a cinematic trailer in its hand. "Just thought I'd remind you after I exist! After all those troubles... you do remember I was bounced from company to company, don't you? Didn't think you'd check in on me? Make sure I hadn't slipped in the shower? No, no. Anyway, hi, bye."

Today it batters down your door riding a sweet hog, looking a dapper from its knapper to its feet, with a gameplay trailer to show how the open-world FPS is looking now:

Fun enough, is how it looks. Also, quite grey. And, an awful lot like a modern Far Cry game.

The video's showing off a mission named Guerrilla Training, so I suspect later ones will hold your hand and nag you less. Still, within a fairly linear mission it shows a fair amount of dicking about your way, being sneaky, driving RC cars, riding a motorbike around, hacking computers, gathering crafting materials (including swiping $5 from a drone's hoverpockets), murdering the heck out a load of folks, and ultimately taking over an outpost.

The game's due in spring 2016. If Far Cry is content to lark about in big wild landscapes, I'm happy to give Homefront a go for open-city action.
