Homefront: The Revolution – 20 May
We’ve only got one release this week folks and it’s none other than the first person open world shooter Homefront: The Revolution, developed by Dambuster Studios and published by Deep Silver.
Homefront: The Revolution is set two years after the original Homefront and follows the games protagonist, Ethan “Birdy” Brady, the youngest member of the resistance, and their attempts to retake the city of Philadelphia from the Korean People’s Army.
The Revolution differs from its predecessor, Homefront, in that it is an open world game with various districts to explore. Each area is vastly different, from the Green Zone, where the presence of the KPA is heaviest which also means the Resistance has more difficulty moving around, to the Red Zone where most of the fighting has taken place. You can expect to find rundown buildings and a stronger Resistance presence, meaning you will come across weapon caches and other items to help out in the fight against the KPA.
Another change from Homefront is the inclusion of a four-player cooperative multiplayer mode, known as the “Resistance” mode. It is separate from the main campaign and has its own characters, progression, classes and perks. Dambuster studios have also said that you can expect a difficulty level similar to that in the Dark Souls games. So if you’ve ever wanted a Dark Souls experience with guns and set in the City of Brotherly Love then “Resistance” mode is likely for you.
Feel free to check out the trailer below to see if this is your kind of thing.
