Crytek's CRYENGINE Powered Homefront The Revolution FPS Coming To Linux

Do not adjust your screen that is a real headline. Crytek's CRYENGINE Powered Homefront The Revolution has been announced with full Linux support.

Set as a sequel to the FPS Homefront, but you won't need to have played the first one as they have already explained everything on their website for it. America has been occupied by an enemy force and you are the resistance.

It will have a single-player campaign as well as online Co-op play which sounds just awesome. It's an open-world FPS, so it isn't your standard run and gun CoD-like game. It has a day & night cycle, weather effects and more to be revealed it's sounding better the more I read up on it.

About (from their site)
Homefront: The Revolution brings the streets of Philadelphia to life in spectacular style thanks to the power of CRYENGINE. Crytek's game-creation technology advances into new territory as its real-time lighting heritage is extended to dynamic and procedural weather systems that combine with a full day-night cycle using physically consistent lighting-values. On the ground, players will simply experience a deeper immersion in an environment that feels and looks alive at every turn – an authenticity that extends to the strikingly lifelike expressions, skin and clothing of everyone they encounter; friend or foe. In a city that looks this good, every last block is definitely worth fighting for.

Good news but hopefully the game will be as fully featured as the other platforms. Metro: Last Light didn't quite hit it but hopefully if it comes out at the same time there is no need to worry.

The Linux version of Metro LL was ported from the Mac version. And Macs were still on OpenGL 3.x at that time. This year they finally arrived in 2010 with OpenGL 4.0 and right now I think they are on 4.1 so maybe they will make it into 2014 end of the year or something ^^

Anyways there are reasons why the new and polished Metro Redux versions are only on Windows and Linux.

So I don't think there will be missing effects or anything this time.

The trailer looks really nice and I bet the graphics will be awesome. Homefront was pretty linear and had a lot of scripted events, I hope they will change that a bit. The description sounds good so far.

Edit: btw will it have a day 1 Linux version or will it be like Tropico ? :/

Plese. please make it run just fine and be released at the same day as all the other versions! Two things I'm afraid of right now. Crappy ports( i know new cryengine is "native" but we have yet to see how well it runs) and late ports.
