You can visit the voting site to share your thoughts on a number of items. Among the choices are an art book, diecast vehicles, a map of the game’s setting of Medici, a grapple hook replica, an RC helicopter, and a number of different dioramas.

You can voice your choice on the Just Cause website. For more on the game, you can check out our coverage hub from December 2014.

Homefront: The Revolution Dated For 2016, Timesplitters Veteran Leading New Studio

about X hours ago from

Following Crytek's financial woes and the deterioration of its relationship with Deep Silver last year, the Dead Island-publisher acquired the rights to the Homefront franchise. What followed was the formation of a new studio, Dambuster Studios and, as we suspected, the delay of the Homefront: The Revolution.

The studio is now staffed by over 120 individuals, many of whom came over from Crytek UK (which was formerly Timesplitters developer Free Radical Design). The studio and Homefront: The Revolution are led by Hasit Zala, whose LinkedIn profile includes a number of credits dating back to Timesplitters, on which he was a senior programmer.

Zala was the team lead and lead programmer on Timesplitters 2 and Timesplitters: Future Perfect. He was also the director for Homefront: The Revolution when Crytek was developing.
