German studio Crytek extends its future shooter games portfolio and announced two new titles in two days. The all-new IP HUNT: Horrors of the Gilded Age is a Third Person Shooter and Homefront: The Revolution, an open-world FPS, which will be cross-platform release.
Set in the late 1800s, players act as hunters who venture into the deadliest of territories and hunt evil creatures that threaten the world. HUNT is a TPS where up to four players team up to fend off hordes of those bloodthirsty creatures and take down evil bosses, which requires cooperative gameplay. HUNT features a special content generation system that ensures players never encounter the same environment or set of enemies twice, with other words you never know what is around the corner.
The game is Crytek USA Corp.'s debut title and will be "part of their growing Game-as-a-Service range", which probably means it will be free-to-play (and that needs to confirmed later).
The official announcement does not mention if HUNT will also feature PvP modes, next to the coop PvE missions.
HUNT will be showcased at the forthcoming E3 2014 and is scheduled to enter Closed Beta testing later this year. Sign up for the Beta is live

Homefront: The Revolution is an FPS set in a near dystopian future: North Korean forces invade the USA (!). "Trapped in this American nightmare, Philadelphia - Birthplace of Independence - has become a police state, where surveillance drones and armored patrols keep her once-proud citizens at heel, crushing any dissent with savage". Players assume the role of rebels and engage in guerilla warfare.
Homefront will come to Xbox One, PS4, PC, Mac and Linux in 2014 and is a project of Crytek and Deep Silver.
