"We're using the power of the CryEngine to create a living, breathing ecosystem," said Salim. "We've got procedural day-night cycles, dynamic rain and weather effects, we've got a rich, emergent AI system."
This isn't meant to be a static world either, but one that reacts to the player, according to Salim. "This is dynamic, evolving open world where everything that the player does affects the environment around them and the people that inhabit this world."
The major promise is "guerilla warfare in an open and evolving world", although we got the impression as the presentation came to a close that this environment wasn't quite ready for a full unveiling.
But Homefront The Revolution is off to a strong start nevertheless. What we saw looked technically impressive, as you'd expect, the story has potential, and the promise of hard-hitting guerrilla warfare in an open, living environment is indeed exciting. Whether there's enough here to separate it from the Modern Warfares and Battlefields will be the key question.

The first one was great but way to short of a campaign, they made up for it in multiplayer. It's very cheap now (under 10 bucks) so you can't go wrong with buying it. It is not open world so this looks awesome!
Crytek has issued a statement which suggests its UK staff and studio have been wholesale transferred to Koch. It did not specifically state that its Nottingham business will be shut down, nor did it mention the UK when listing its active development hubs. The company was unavailable for comment at the time of going to press.
In a prepared statement, Crytek said: "On completion of the proposed acquisition, the Homefront team from Crytek's Nottingham studio would transfer their talents to Koch Media in compliance with English law and continue their hard work on upcoming shooter, Homefront: The Revolution. Both parties hope to finalise and implement a deal soon."
“We are excited that Deep Silver’s acquisition of the Homefront IP and assets from Crytek has allowed development of Homefront: The Revolution to continue with minimum disruption. The team here believes we are working on something truly special.”
