Homefront: The Revolution
Homefront: The Revolution is a sequel to the 2011 shooter Homefront and is set in 2029, four years after the events of Homefront. Players take on the role of every-man protagonist Ethan Brady, a revolutionary fighting against the invasion of the United States by the Greater Korean Republic. Set in Philadelphia, the game features a vast open world sandbox in which players fight a dedicated guerrilla war against the GKR.
After the events of Homefront, the Greater Korean Republic loses the western states of the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii, and in turn, strengthens its presence in the Eastern United States, making Philadelphia their main base. Citizens live in fear and oppression under the boots of the Korean People’s Army, sparking a rebellion led by Dana, leader of the resistance and Ethan “Birdy” Brady, an untrained, ‘average guy’ protagonist. With open warfare against the technologically superior Korean People’s Army no longer an option, the resistance must now work together, using guerrilla tactics to fight the KPA and take back Philadelphia.
The game’s open world is divided into distinct districts which the player can conquer, each inhabited by citizens who are affected by the player’s actions, including whatever missions or side-missions the player undertakes. Over the course of the game, the player earns Uprising Points for various activities performed to undermine the rule of the KPA, from throwing a brick at a KPA camera to assassinations. The Uprising Points represent the revolutionary fervor of Philadelphia, affecting the influence the resistance has over the city.
The game offers considerable freedom in and out of combat, such as allowing players to traverse the open world using motorbikes. Meanwhile, in combat, the player can use RC cars to cause havoc, which are controlled by the Ethan’s cell phone.
Additionally, the game offers a four-player co-operative multiplayer mode.
