After recently releasing a video teaser last week, John Romero has officially announced Night Work Games‘ next project: Blackroom. He’s once again teaming up with id Software alumnus Adrian Carmack for “a visceral, varied and violent shooter that harkens back to classic FPS.” As with Doom, there will be an emphasis on speed, dodging fire by circle-strafing and sidestepping, and exploring to find shortcuts and items. Quake’s influence will also be felt, particularly with rocket-jumping. The single-player campaign is estimated to last over 10 hours, with environments ranging from a Victorian mansion to an old west ghost town, and multiplayer support for versus (one-on-one, free-for-all) and co-op over six maps. There will also be Challenge Modes, including some for speedrunners, and support for player-made maps, mods, and dedicated servers. A Kickstarter campaign has gone live to fund the project, with a goal of $700,000.

Homefront: The Revolution’s populace and Merits system is in the limelight today with a new trailer and screenshots. Hearts and Minds 101 demonstrates how and why it’s important for players to get the residents of Philadelphia’s various zones on their side.

To ensure that the people embrace the cause, players will be able to perform actions that sway popular opinion to their side. Screenshots were released demonstrating the differences between when the people are for or against the occupiers. The Merits system was also detailed. This is the mechanic that unlocks new items in the co-op Resistance mode. Players can start earning Merits now at Homefront-Game.com by completing ‘missions’ to gain Red Rebel gear. To see the kit in-game, players must link their Homefront profile to their Live, PSN, or Steam account.
