It's always good to get things reconfirmed near the main release. Dambuster has confirmed Linux gamers haven't been forgotten about for Homefront: The Revolution.

If you read GOL often, you would have already known that Homefront: The Revolution was coming to Linux. It was originally planned to be a day-1 release, but then it wasn't so clear and now it seems for sure it's not until after the initial release.

@keyboardN1nja @gamingonlinux @HomefrontGame Windows first with native Mac & Linux to follow afterwards - we haven't forgotten you! :)

I'm quite sad it's now for sure not a day-1 release, but also very glad the developer directly seems committed to a Linux version.

I still think day-1 releases are one of the keys to Linux/SteamOS success, but I will take a wait over no port of course. I just hope it doesn't turn into "one of those" where we end up waiting, seeing a delay, more delays and so on which happens often for us.

I'm looking forward to it a lot, are you?

About the game (From Steam)

Homefront: The Revolution is an open-world first person shooter where you must lead the Resistance movement in guerrilla warfare against a superior military force.

A living, breathing, open world responds to your actions - you and your Resistance Cell can inspire a rebellion on the streets and turn Occupation into Revolution, as oppressed civilians take up the fight.

But your enemy has the advantage - superior technology, firepower, heavy armour and air support. You must learn the art of guerrilla warfare – ambush, sabotage, infiltration, deception – and fight a running battle through the war-ravaged suburbs of Philadelphia.

And the single player campaign is just the start – in Co-Op you and your friends can form your own Resistance Cell and become renowned as Heroes of the Revolution.

Generic looking shooter. I'll only pick it up if friends wants to play it co-op, the delayed release is going to make that less likely to correlate. The high price will surely have many waiting for a sale though.

^^ As much as I personally dislike the genre, generic military dudebro shooters are severely lacking on Linux. This is a welcome addition.

Sucks it won't be day-1, but it's nice to see communication and a confirmation that they are still bringing this to the penguin. The optimist in me hopes the delay will allow for Vulkan support. The pessimist in me remembers that CryEngine only got DX12 support about a month ago and DX12 has almost a year headstart on Vulkan.

Anyway, once this comes out for the penguin I'll likely scoop it up, given it reviews well.

This looks like it could draw me in, the graphics look great, if the gameplay and story are captivating I would love to have freshly baked 2016 AAA games, my wallet on the other hand advises I keep my senses ha :P, we'll see which one of us wins out.

Really I don't mind these games coming to Linux, be nice if COD and other such games came to Linux also (officially) because the more people we get using Linux the more effort will go into porting games over and making it a more enjoyable platform.

Linux still gets hugely trashed today for not having enough users to be viable, being way too hard to use etc etc....

Yeah, that looks like a FPS game I'll love.
