SPRING UPDATE HAS ARRIVED

SPRING UPDATE HAS ARRIVED
March 6, 2017 tags

Get ready to breathe in the fresh rural air as our Spring Update has arrived!

Available now, here is what to expect:

Free Trial
Players who are yet to dive into city of Philadelphia will be able to download the game for free. This includes:

Resistance Mode
Unlimited access to Resistance Mode, Homefront’s online co-operative mode. This includes access to all additional missions and character customisation content releases since launch. With no in-game micro-transactions, players can enjoy all content with up to 4 players absolutely free of charge!

Campaign
Players will get to trial the first Red Zone area of the game which totals up to 4 hours of gameplay.

The trial will be free to download from the Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Network. Players who download the trial will, in fact, be downloading the entire game and its content meaning that at any point, they can pay to unlock the full version to continue The Revolution.

PS4 Pro Support / HDR Support
Alongside our other announced content, PlayStation Pro owners will see some extra additions to their game.
• The game is rendered in 1440p, and all HUD / UI elements are rendered in 4K, providing superior image quality on 4K TV’s and a crisper, super-sampled image on HD TV’s.
• The well-loved Easter egg content is now rendered in native 4K.
• Frame rate performance is further improved.

“Beyond the Walls”
Our third and final DLC, Beyond the Walls will be our largest piece of single player content, set in a new rural environment beyond the walls of Philadelphia that feels much more similar to the original Homefront’s setting.

Beyond the Walls is free to all holders of the Expansion Pass, and will be available to buy separately for $12.99 or local equivalent (expected £10.99, €12.99).

Official Description:
The second American Revolution has been crushed by the KPA occupation forces, and Philadelphia – last stronghold of the Resistance – is about to fall.

In America’s darkest hour, a glimmer of hope appears when a NATO agent makes contact from beyond the city walls with a desperate call for help. They claim to have information that could finally end the occupation – but can the Resistance reach them before the KPA close in…?

• Play as Ethan Brady, on a last-chance mission to free America from her nightmarish, totalitarian occupation
• Travel beyond the walls of Philadelphia to the rural heartlands of Pennsylvania, the cradle of Independence
• Make contact with NATO and discover their daring plan to defeat the KPA once and for all

THE REBELLION HANGS IN THE BALANCE

THE REBELLION HANGS IN THE BALANCE
November 9, 2016 tags

Aftermath is set in the days after the Battle for Philadelphia, when the fledgling rebellion hangs in the balance. The inspirational Resistance figurehead Benjamin Walker has been broken by the KPA, and is now broadcasting counter-revolutionary propaganda for the enemy. Support for the embattled Resistance is ebbing away…

As Ethan Brady, you have been tasked to assassinate the man once known as the ‘Voice of Freedom’ for the sake of the Revolution. But instead, you will defy orders and embark on a daring rescue mission.

Aftermath is free to all holders of the Homefront Expansion Pass, and available to purchase separately. It is ready to download now for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC via Steam.

A new FREE Resistance Mode Mission – Uncle S.A.M. – has also been added as part of this week’s patch, and is available to all players. Your Squad must counter the KPA’s aerial superiority by deploying S.A.M. launchers, then take out their Air Force’s high command in a deadly strike… Any players returning to Homefront: The Revolution will also find that the recent ‘Performance Patch’ has massively improved the overall experience.

INFILTRATE OCCUPIED PHILADELPHIA

INFILTRATE OCCUPIED PHILADELPHIA
September 27, 2016 tags

The Voice of Freedom casts the player as Benjamin Walker, legendary figurehead for the rebellion and the KPA’s most wanted man, as he tries to infiltrate Occupied Philadelphia and meet up with Jack Parish’s Resistance Cell. This tense, story-driven prologue will test your stealth and combat skills as you encounter a sinister and hostile faction in the subways of Philadelphia – the ‘90’.

The Voice of Freedom is free to all holders of the Homefront Expansion Pass, and available to purchase separately. It is ready to download now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC via Steam.

Players returning to Homefront: The Revolution will also find that the recent ‘Performance Patch’ has massively improved the overall experience.

PERFORMANCE PATCH

August 23, 2016 tags

Performance Patch
We are pleased to announce that our ‘Performance Patch’ will be releasing today! The team have worked incredibly hard on features and improvements contained in this patch. From stabilisation to bug fixes, we can’t wait to get it into your hands!

With hundreds of improvements and fixes, we cannot list them all but we would like to focus on some of the bigger ones.

Frame rate Improvements
The biggest problem players experienced at the launch of Homefront: The Revolution was inconsistent frame rate. We have been working hard to improve this incrementally throughout previous patches, and have now boosted frame rate a further 15% on top of the 25% improvement already achieved in 1.06. This will ensure a much smoother experience for everyone playing across all platforms.

Save Game Stalls
The team have also been working on another of the bigger issues since we launched, ‘stalls’ that were present when the game is saving. We reduced the number of stalls occurring in previous patches, but the team have spent further work to reduce this event entirely. We are happy to report that this has been greatly reduced from the 5 to 10 seconds originally reported to becoming unnoticeable as you play through the game.

Bug fixes
As mentioned above, we have been regularly reviewing Community reported issues and have spent time fixing up the most commonly reported bugs that players have unfortunately encountered whilst playing Campaign and Resistance Mode. Further details of the main issues fixed will be present in the Patch Notes.

HUD Customizer
Some players have been requesting the ability to hide certain UI elements from the HUD. We are pleased to announce this is now possible. Players will see a new menu item under Options called “HUD”. Here you will be able to toggle elements on or off to change your experience.

Resistance Mode – 2 New Maps
Boom Patrol

“The KPA seem to be massing their drone forces, we believe they’re planning a huge mechanised attack, but if we can destroy their fuel supplies we can stop the drones in their tracks. Find the KPA fuel dump and eliminate it.”

textimg1

Indy Forever
“The KPA have retaken parts of Lombard and are probing our defences at Independence Hall. We think they might be planning a major assault. We need the Resistance Goliath to repel their attack but its offline. Repair the Goliath and defend Independence Hall at all costs.”

textimg2

Resistance Mode – Guerrilla Score
The ‘Guerrilla Score’ system has been introduced to indicate a player’s overall experience with the game. Players can earn Guerrilla Score by ranking up characters, completing missions on increasing difficulties, earning new citations and increasing a character’s ‘Renown’.

Resistance Mode – Renown
Players who have reached top rank on characters will be pleased to hear that our new ‘Renown’ system will allow continued play. All XP gained at max rank contributes towards a character’s renown, increase their Renown to earn more Guerrilla Score and Armory crates.

The full patch notes can be viewed on our forums: http://bit.ly/2bTwHd3

PATCH 1.06

PATCH 1.06
July 11, 2016 tags

We are excited to announce that the first two new missions will be joining Resistance Mode today!

“Three Birds” and “Triage” will be added to the game with the next update on all platforms, expected to be live today, which will also see other fixes and improvements as part of our continuous post-launch support. And as promised, these and all future Resistance Mode missions will be available to everyone for free.

With the future in mind, we would also like to reassure all our players that the team is still working on further updates and performance optimisations. The feedback received so far has been incredible and since launch, we have fixed hundreds of issues.

See the full patch notes for Patch 1.06 on our forums.

Three Birds
The KPA are using their Duster drones as weapons of terror against the civilian population. We have to show people the Resistance can protect them. We believe the Dusters are operating out of Elmtree, we need to find them and destroy them.

Triage
Resistance hospitals are in desperate need of medical supplies. Your team is being sent to rendezvous with the Eagles in enemy territory and recover supplies, just don’t expect the KPA to stand by while you do it.

THE REVOLUTION STARTS NOW

THE REVOLUTION STARTS NOW

Homefront: The Revolution is an open-world first person shooter where you must lead the Resistance movement in guerrilla warfare against a superior military force.

A living, breathing, open world responds to your actions – you and your Resistance Cell can inspire a rebellion on the streets and turn Occupation into Revolution, as oppressed civilians take up the fight.

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

And the single player campaign is just the start – in Resistance Mode, our online Co-Op experience, you and your friends can form your own Resistance Cell and become renowned as Heroes of the Revolution

Homefront: The Revolution is out on May 20th on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC!

Expansion Pass:

The Expansion Pass includes access to the three currently planned single player campaign expansions, and unlocks some exclusive bonuses for use in Homefront’s online co-operative experience known as Resistance Mode!

Coming in 2016, The Voice of Freedom and Aftermath will both add new districts and several hours of original single-player content that complement Homefront’s huge 30-hour campaign.

A much larger expansion – Beyond the Walls – will follow in 2017, with more details to follow.

Expansion Pass holders also benefit from these Resistance Mode perks:

  • ‘Supply Line’ entitles players to a FREE Resistance Crate each week, just for logging into Resistance Mode
  • ‘The Right Kind of School’ unlocks three new starting backgrounds for your Resistance Mode character : ‘ATF Agent’, ‘G-Man’ and ‘U.S. Marshall’

EXPLORE OUR HISTORY
April 26, 2016 tags

As our newest member of the resistance you have a lot of questions, that’s normal. To understand who we’re up against and how the norks could occupy the United States of America you should have a look at our Interactive Timeline. You’ll find a series of historical events spanning from 1953 to 2029, our involvement in the Korean war and the rise of APEX in North America.

We’ve also prepared videos on why things became so messed up, here is the latest one:

LIBERATE A CITY

LIBERATE A CITY
April 11, 2016 tags

Life under the oppression of the KPA is hard for all of us. That’s why we need you to help us to take back the occupied zones of Philadelphia. Watch the video below to learn more about the different zones of the city.

In the bombed-out ruins and abandoned streets of the Red Zones, we’re at war with the KPA. We set traps and lay ambushes for their patrols to take back control block by block, and establish safe houses where we can restock on supplies and equipment. But be aware: the KPA monitors the streets continuously with airships and snipers.

The Yellow Zones are the parts of the city where most of the population lives. Here you’ll have to provide hope to the people and mobilise them for our cause. Win their hearts and minds by aiding them against the oppressors, destroying the KPA’s infrastructure, and countering their propaganda to ignite the spark of Revolution. The environment dynamically changes as you gain more popular support. When we’ve established enough control of the city, we can strike at the heart of the KPA’s control, the Green Zones. This is from where they control Philadelphia and organize their occupation, so expect heavy resistance. It will be no easy feat to take on the KPA’s most secure zones, but with your help and the help of the people, we will have a chance.

HEARTS AND MINDS

HEARTS AND MINDS
March 30, 2016 tags

Playing as freedom fighter Ethan Brady, your ultimate goal in Homefront is to inspire the people to rise up against the brutal military occupation and ignite the revolution.

‘Hearts and Minds’ represents the state of uprising across the oppressed Yellow Zones of occupied Philadelphia, and will increase as you performs acts of resistance, such as destroying KPA infrastructure.

The open world dynamically transforms around you as Hearts and Minds increases – a once cowed civilian population will join the resistance in acts of defiance, and the entire Zone will evolve from a state of lockdown to open revolution on the streets.
