Homefront: The Revolution throws players into a near future dystopia where a catastrophic events have brought the United States to its knees and enabled the Korean People's Army forces to impose a brutal military occupation.

Homefront: The Revolution throws players into an alternate near-future dystopia, where a humanitarian crisis has brought the U.S. to its knees under the brutal military control of a globally dominant Korean corporation. Surveillance drones, armored patrols and police violence have become everyday life in Philadelphia, the once proud birthplace of American independence. However, in the ruined outskirts of the city, a resistance is getting stronger...

On their path to freedom, players have to fight a seemingly unwinnable guerrilla war against a superior military force. Using hit and run tactics, ambushes and infiltration, the resistance relies on surprise attacks and an arsenal of improvised weapons to throw back the oppressors and spread the flame of revolution.

Homefront: The Revolution is an open-world first person shooter where the player must lead a Resistance movement in guerrilla warfare against a superior military force. A living, breathing, open world responds to your every action – the Resistance Cell can inspire a rebellion on the streets and turn Occupation into Revolution, as oppressed civilians take up the fight.

Guerrilla Warfare showcases the type of gameplay and combat variety players can expect in the game’s single-player campaign as well as in the online co-op Resistance Mode.

Faced with the technologically superior forces of the KPA who are occupying Philadelphia in 2029, the Resistance needs to fight their war for liberation on their own terms. Urban guerrillas use their knowledge of the environment, their custom homebrew weapons, and their Guerrilla Toolkit to their advantage to even the odds.

As a guerrilla fighter in the Resistance you:

  • MODIFY WEAPONS TO SUIT ANY SITUATION: Use the in-game and on-the-fly weapon customization system to tailor your weapons to your style of play. Add a silencer to infiltrate under the cover of darkness in a dynamic day and night cycle, or equip a muzzle break to forego stealth in favor of loud firepower. Equip different sights and scopes or different grips to go from short range mobile stability to long range accuracy.
  • CONVERT WEAPONS FOR ON THE FLY UTILITY: Convert your pistol to a submachine gun, your assault rifle to a mine launcher, your crossbow to a flamethrower and more!
  • USE THE GUERRILLA TOOLKIT TO TURN OPEN WORLD COMBAT INTO A TACTICAL PLAYGROUND: Use explosive and incendiary devices to ambush the KPA, distract patrols, or hack enemy cameras and drones to turn enemy tech against them. Modify any of your Guerrilla Toolkit items with a bit of good old American ingenuity; throw it, trigger it, lay a trap, or put it on an R/C Car to take direct control.
  • USE THE TERRAIN: This city is your city. Learn your environment to know where to strike from, and where to escape to. In the urban population centers of the Yellow Zones, strike unseen and melt away in the city’s alleyways. In the war-torn Red Zones of Philadelphia, hit hard and unexpected, then jump on your motorbike to evade the inevitable KPA reinforcements.

But the enemy has the advantage - superior technology, firepower, heavy armor and air support. Players must learn the art of guerrilla warfare – ambush, sabotage, infiltration, deception – and fight a running battle through the war-ravaged suburbs of Philadelphia.

The Resistance flourishes far beyond the single player. Homefront: The Revolution supports up to four players in online Co-Op gameplay where you form your own Resistance Cell and become renowned as Heroes of the Revolution.

On the ground, players will encounter a dynamic environment that looks and feels truly alive as day turns to night and storm clouds come and go - an authenticity that extends to the strikingly lifelike expressions, skin and clothing of everyone they encounter.
