The games will be playing in the Expo’s Hollywood Zone, set aside for AAA console and high profile titles.
Taking place after the events of the multi-million seller Dead Island, GES 2014 attendees will go hands-on with Dead Island 2, experiencing the visceral joy of next-generation zombie defence as they fight for their lives to survive an ever-increasing horde of the undead in California.
Homefront: The Revolution, is the story of Ethan Brady, a resistance fighter in occupied Philadelphia, fighting back against invasion from a fictional, futuristic Korean Republic, which invaded a weakened United States in the original Homefront game. Developer Crytek will also be speaking at Game Expo Scotland’s conference programme.
