Homefront The Revolution (PC, PS4, Xbox One) gamescom Announcement - Screenshot 1

A new trailer has gone live for Homefront: The Revolution. The upcoming open-world shooter from Deep Silver Dambuster Studios switches things up from the original Homefront by eschewing a linear storyline in favor of greater freedom. Players will be able to tackle missions in any order as they lead a band of resistance fighters against an oppressive Korean corporation in Philadelphia. The group must rely on guerrilla tactics to further the cause, such as ambushes, improvised weaponry, and hit-and-run attacks. After inspiring others to join the cause in the single-player campaign, players can take the war online by linking up with others to form Resistance Cells.

Paradise Never (PC) PAX East Announcement - Screenshot 1

Devolver Digital is set to debut a new action RPG from Kitty Lambda Games at PAX East, Paradise Never. The game will take place on a French island colony in 2027, during the outset of a revolution. Players must relive the same three days in order to free the island while keeping as many of their friends and fellow rebels alive. Said to utilize a “sophisticated NPC behavioral system,” players will be able to learn more from characters by talking to them at different times of the day and on different days. Characters left alone will continue on their regular routine. The ultimate goal is to stop the days from restarting, but that will only happen when enough people survive the revolution.
