Five Big Takeaways From First Homefront: The Revolution Hands-On

Deep Silver showed off a new trailer for Homefront: The Revolution at Microsoft's Gamescom presentation, showing a glimpse of what life is like for Americans living under occupation of the Korean People's Army. Today, I got to experience it myself, in the first hands-on demo for the game. Deep Silver Dambuster Studios is reimagining the world the first game set up, keeping the sense of oppression and unease but blowing everything else wide open. Here are five big things you need to know about Homefront: The Revolution.

Philly's Seen Better DaysHomefront: The Revolution is set in Philadelphia, well after the KPA occupation has taken hold. The sequel basically scrapped everything but the premise from the first game, even going back and creating an alternate timeline that reaches back 50 years in the past. That fictional history is designed to better explain how exactly the Koreans were able to take control of the United States and lend more plausibility to the scenario. The demo took place in the city's red zone, the blasted-out suburban ring surrounding the city. It's a shoot-on-sight area, and it's essentially open warfare.

Excitement Rises In Tomb Raider's Crypts And Caverns

When Lara Croft wants something, she doesn't hold back, doing everything in her power to achieve it. In my recent hands-on session for Rise of the Tomb Raider, she's just as resourceful and daring as she's always been, and I couldn't be happier about that. The original Tomb Raider reboot was fantastic, and my hands-on proved that Crystal Dynamics is still at the top of its game, providing thrills at every turn. While previous demos and trailers have shown Lara sneaking around enemies and chatting with a therapist, this Gamescom  demo catered to her actual tomb-raiding skills.

In my demo, I played Lara's first tomb-raiding expedition in Syria. The eerie tomb is full of skeletons, insects, and spider webs. From the moment you step in, the tomb has this ongoing tension – making you wonder what the next discovery will be. This doesn't just extend to the main narrative, but also to items you find in the environment that explain more of what's going on. In this tomb, we're tracking down the casket of a prophet who performed healing miracles. Throughout the tomb, we find ancient documents that debate his death. People said they saw him killed, but others indicate they saw the prophet still alive after that.
