It seems Homefront: The Revolution [Steam] is seeing some fresh Linux-related activity on SteamDB, with it being giving a launch configuration.

If I may direct your attention to this and this it seems that someone has started focusing on the Linux version some more. The latest update being today and only a few hours ago too.

We already knew it was confirmed for Linux, and back in June the publisher did state it was still in the works.

While it doesn't have the best reviews, a lot of people are still enjoying it. It is also a game that is still updated and supported with patches and DLC so it's certainly not a dead on arrival game.

As usual, when it releases I will give it a look and a report without bias as I have not played it. We still don't have a big choice when it comes to good-looking FPS games, so I am still hoping it's at least reasonably fun somehow. Article taken from

Aww yiss, I'm excited to get this, despite the lackluster reviews it got. I'll buy it as soon as it hits penguin shelves.

A developer also confirmed the port here in the official forums of the game at end of August.

is this the first cryengine game that could hit linux?

I remember being very excited about this game, I just don't recall why..

The Linux release lag might suck for us, but I imagine it sucks worse for the developer to loose sales because the hype train left long ago.

It looks like a solid game. I've seen some let's play and I love the idea of modular weapons. I never played it but sure will do as soon as it lands on Linux and you will have posted your port report :)

Didn't CryTek say they are going to release CryEngine 5.3 with Vulkan support in mid october?
Just saying that it would be more reasonable to get the port going with a Vulkan renderer instead of trying to somehow get the broken OpenGL renderer to work properly...

It's difficult what to make of the reviews. This game has a pretty low rating, but most of the reviews on the front page are positive. Which contrasts quite a lot with "Valley", which has a very high rating but quite a few bad reviews on the front page.

If I single out the bad reviews for Homefront, they seem to have bad AI and repetitive gameplay in common. As well as it not being the best shooter for the money. It'll be interesting to hear opinions on here.
