Homefront: The Revolution is game that has lots of great ideas, that end up in not quite reaching their potential. The performance issues need desperately sorting out. Its well worth playing through the Co-Op missions but apart from that I’d wait for this to drop in price before thinking about picking this up.
So hopefully the path will improve my opinion of the game!
Titled the Story Trailer, we’re given a first look into the gripping story behind the game. As the raw recruit Ethan Brady, you are plunged into the desperate struggle for freedom as the Resistance try to save the one man who can inspire the people to rise up. That man is Benjamin Walker, the ‘Voice of Freedom’ himself. Just what lengths will the Resistance go to meet their goals and will the end truly justify the means?
Homefront: The Revolution brings you state of the art performance capture weaved into over 30 hours of open world single-player campaign that slowly reveals its dark and brutal self.
Homefront: The Revolution is set for release for Xbox One on May 17th 2016.
Deep Silver Dambuster Studios have unveiled the opening cinematic for Homefront The Revolution. America has Fallen takes a morbid look at how a country so reliant on foreign technology could have its liberty taken away by a backdoor in that technology, placing it into an archaic state and below the America has Fallen trailer is the story of APEX – I’ll let you work out the similarities of companies and timelines…
The core premise of Homefront – an occupation on American soil – remains unchanged,
said Hasit Zala, Game Director at Dambuster Studios.
But we have created a brand new fiction that offers a very different interpretation of how we got there.
In this latest trailer you learn about the different zones of Philadelphia and what the KPA has in store for you. Retake the ruined outskirts of the city in open guerrilla warfare, liberate heavily populated areas where striking unseen is the way to survive, and hit the KPA at their bases of control to win your beloved city back.
“The battle to free Occupied Philadelphia doesn’t just happen in the bombed out streets of the Red Zone, or the high security Yellow Zone – it happens in the hearts and minds of the people!”
“You have to inspire our countrymen – lead by example, and they’ll rise up as one. Together, we can change this world…”
For more information check out the official site. Homefront: The Revolution will be released for Xbox One and PC on May 17th.
This time the video focuses on the ultimate goal in Homefront which is to inspire the people to rise up against the brutal military occupation and ignite the revolution. As you play as freedom fighter Ethan Brady and perform acts of resistance, such as destroying KPA in-frastructure you alter the ‘Hearts and Minds’ state of the uprising.
As this state increases the open world will dynamically change around you. Where once civilians cowered and hid, they now join you in acts of defiance and resistance, taking the zones from a state of lockdown to an open revolution in a single spark.
Homefront: The Revolution will be released on Xbox One and PC on May 20th 2016
