Deep Silver will release Homefront: The Revolution on May 17 in North America, the publisher announced today. The open-world futuristic shooter, which is bound for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms, will arrive May 20 in other territories.
Xbox One owners can get their hands on Homefront: The Revolution in February, thanks to a console-exclusive beta. Deep Silver says it and Microsoft will be running promotions to give players access to the closed, limited beta. Xbox One owners hoping to get in can sign up at the game’s official website.
Homefront: The Revolution takes place in 2029, two years after the events of 2011’s Homefront. Protagonist Ethan Brady returns to lead a resistance movement against the army of a Korean invasion in the city of Philadelphia. It will feature a single-player campaign and a four-player online co-op mode. Despite being attached to the first Homefront game, developer Dambuster Studios alleges that “everything is new” for the game, and thatthere is a reason why it was not titled Homefront 2.
A new gameplay trailer was also released, called ‘This is Philadelphia’ and shows off the game’s Yellow Zones.
