HOMEFRONT: THE REVOLUTION

headerHomefront: The Revolution was released on May 17, 2016 by Deep Silver. The game was developed by Dambuster Studios. Homefront: The Revolution is an open world first person shooter.

The original Homefront was more scripted and not the open world that The Revolution offers. The player can scavenge for supplies to modify weapons and equipment.

The KPA’s weapons are all fingerprint-locked and as such they have a sizeable advantage over the resistance. There are side missions where the player will be called off to carry out tasks like assassinating a high-ranking KPA general or steal a KPA drone.

There is an option to modify weapons even in a firefight. This idea is to emulate a guerilla warfare environment. Philadelphia is the center of the action. There are 3 zones, greed, red and yellow. Each has their own environment and tactics.

The Green Zone is the affluent area where at the center of the city the KPA is at its strongest, they are also where the invaders are at their most comfortable: they have running water, a stable power supply, and their fortifications make green zones one of the safest places in the city.

The Yellow Zone is the ghetto area where most of the population live. Patrols happen frequently and it is very difficult for the rebels to navigate. The cluttered city streets are awash with patrols, scanner drones, and ever-watching cameras.

The Red Zone is the bombed-out suburban area of Philadelphia that is full of ruins and rubble; it is also where the resistance is at its strongest. While the KPA presence is still heavy, players will run into resistance troops, weapon caches, and traps set up to take out enemy patrols.

The game is designed carefully for 4 player cooperative action.

PERFORMANCE

This game requires a faster X4 processor and at least 8GB of memory. Our HD 7870 and GTX 660 Ti both can handle this game at 1920×1080 with good framerates.

This game is 38GB so expect it to take a while to install.
