Welcome to Philadelphia
After a rather long break Homefront: The Revolution is back with a new video and a release date. This time we are shown the intricacies of life in the KPA occupied Philadelphia with its lovely dose poverty, kidnappings and beatings. This is how life goes on in the Yellow Zone with Red Zone offering action packed war-like environment and Green Zone, a boring posh lifestyle.
The year is 2029. Four years into the military occupation, America is on its knees.
Like all her great cities, Philadelphia - once the birthplace of Independence - has been carved into three distinct Zones:
The Red Zones are war-ravaged wastelands, where the first armed uprising against the KPA Occupation was brutally crushed. In these uninhabited and desolate ruins, the Resistance wages constant guerrilla warfare against the KPA...
The Green Zones are the highly militarised command centres from where the KPA exercise their power and control. Iconic landmarks of Philadelphia such as Independence Hall have been repurposed to house the KPA Elites and high ranking American collaborators. Breaching these Green Zones would mean suicide for all but the boldest of Resistance fighters...
And lastly, the Yellow Zones. These 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.
Citizens can choose between a bleak existence of forced labour, squalid living conditions and meagre rations, or sell their souls for the relative but seductive comforts of collaboration.
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 torchbearers 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...
The game is set to come out 17th May 2016 in America and 20th May 2016 the rest if the world.
There is also an announcement about an upcoming Xbone beta but until we see a word “PC” in there we don’t really care, do we.
