Yes, the rumours were correct.
Deep Silver has announced that Homefront: The Revolution will be released on PS4, Xbox One and PC in the UK on May 20th. It will arrive in the US on May 17th.
A couple of retail ‘leaks’ had already appeared to have pointed to a May release date.
An open beta for Xbox One owners will kick off next month.
You’ve seen the Resistance wage open guerrilla warfare in the war-ravaged outskirts of the Red Zone, while the KPA and American collaborators hide and control the city from the fortified Green Zone. But this, this is Yellow Zone,” the blurb reads.
The Yellow Zones are the densely populated areas of Philadelphia, where civilians live in constant fear. A mix of Orwellian police state and ghetto slum, the People are kept under the heel of oppression through permanent surveillance, 24-hour propaganda, and an ever-constant military presence.
But even here in the Yellow Zone, the Resistance is at work. Hiding in plain sight, blending in with the crowd, and weapons concealed until the last possible moment, the last torch bearers of freedom have vowed to dismantle the KPA infrastructure here piece by bloody piece.
As a Freedom Fighter in the Resistance, you’ll uncover safe houses and other tactical locations from which to mount an attack; you’ll disrupt KPA propaganda, disable their security, and infiltrate and destroy high value targets; you’ll intervene to save civilian lives, or assassinate high ranking officials… each action a step forwards to your ultimate goal – Revolution…”
Homefront: The Revoltuion was at one stage due out in 2015, although it was delayed after Deep Silver acquired the IP from Crytek and handed development duties to Deep Silver Dambuster.
Here’s a new trailer:
