I didn't expect Deep Silver to reply to me so quickly, but it seems the Linux & SteamOS release of Homefront: The Revolution will come out alongside Windows on May 20th!

@gamingonlinux Linux / SteamOS is still planned for release alongside Windows PC and console on May 20th.

I am now much more interested in the title now that I know they are aiming for a same-day release. I haven't played the first one, but you don't really need to play it to get what's going on luckily.

About the game
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. Article taken from

Awesome. The first Homefront wasn't groundbreaking by any means but was a solid shooter.

And COOP too? My GOTY for 2016 :D

I played the first part years ago in Window$, and isn't great but is a good & fun shooter.

I played this at EGX. Apart from my total inability to do shooting games with a controller it seemed a lot of fun: multiple ways to achieve objectives and a mix of shooting and stealth.

Looks amazing. Insta-buy for me. Putting this on my calendar right now.

Very nice! This will be a Day 1 purchase for me.

I also agree with the above comments, the first game was not that great and it could certainly have been a few hours longer but all the same it was not a bad shooter. The game-mechanics worked well, can't recall any bugs, the story was reasonably entertaining and the environments were atmospheric.

The story as presented doesn't seem to have much personality, but the gameplay looks like it has potential. At any rate it's also good to get higher profile games on the platform :)

So will this be the first CryEngine game released on Linux? I'm a bit lost how Deep Silver ended up publishing this - looks like I missed something there.

And co-op too?
Every game gets better with coop (if you add a good buddy to the mix). So now it only needs to be a mediocre single player game and still be worth it :)
