Great news, first-person shooter Homefront: The Revolution is coming to the Mac.
The news is coming straight from Dambuster Studio, the game’s developer.
Both Dambuster and publisher Deep Silver kept mentioning Windows and Linux support, but nothing about the Mac. It was starting to feel like we would be left behind, just as we were with Dying Light or Saints Row IV.
Well, things have changed, and now we can expect a Mac version shortly after the game is released on Windows, on March 17:

This was also confirmed in an official press release from Deep Silver:
Homefront: The Revolution is scheduled for release on May 17th in North America, and May 20th in all other territories on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC. Native Mac and Linux versions are also in development.
I don’t know if you actually played the first Homefront game, but I heard it was meh. That said, The Revolution is looking great and after seeing lots of previews, I can’t wait (probably because I love first-person shooters too).
Another reason to get excited? Homefront: The Revolution will be the first game on Mac that will use the CryEngine. Hopefully, it will pave the way for other games that use the engine.
While we wait for a definite Mac release date, I leave you with their latest trailer:
But for now, hold on to your wallet
You can already pre-order Homefront: The Revolution on Steam for $59.99. But as always, I recommend you to wait. Mac versions sometimes are delayed, cancelled, or simply forgotten, so you better wait until the game gets an official Mac version.
But don’t worry, I’ll keep you posted.
