The first Homefront featured plenty of cruel and brutal scenes, which weren’t easy to digest for many. Parents were murdered in front of their children, mass graves etc, were among the scenes we witnessed in Homefront.
However, Narrative Designer CJ Kershner has revealed that similar scenes won’t be a part of the upcoming Homefront: The Revolution. According to him, the narrative won’t be as brutal and cruel as the first one.
“In the first Homefront, there were mass graves, families were separated and there were even parents killed in front of their children. Scenes of this type won’t be in Homefront: The Revolution.”
He explained that the aim behind the narrative this time is to make players feel a permanent sense of threat and oppression.
Brutality and cruelty in video games is nothing new but there has to be a limit to what developers do and don’t show on-screen. I believe developers are taking the right approach with the next Homefront.
Homefront: The Revolution will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. We are yet to hear a release date, but expect the title to arrive sometime in Spring 2016.
