Here’s Homefront: The Revolution’s story trailer

I’ve been keeping a watchful eye over Homefront: The Revolution. The first game was appalling, but the idea that the continental Unites States could succumb to an invading force is an interesting one. This new game, by Dambuster and publisher Deep Silver is intriguing, showing how a harmless Korean technology corporation used its consumer savvy to gain a slow foothold in the country. Using technology as a Trojan horse, the Korean People’s Army invaded the US – and now it’s time to fight back.

In The Revolution, you’ll play as seemingly boring white dude Ethan Brady as he tries to rescue The resistance’s Benjamin Walker; a “man who can inspire the people to rise up.” There’s 30 hours of Far Cry-ish gameplay for you to engage in as you try to win over the hearts and minds of Philadelphia’s populace.

“The battle to free Occupied Philadelphia doesn’t just happen in the bombed out streets of the Red Zone, or the high security Yellow Zone – it happens in the hearts and minds of the people!
You have to inspire our countrymen – lead by example, and they’ll rise up as one. Together, we can change this world…”

It’s out next week – which is very possible a bad, bad time to release a game that people aren’t quite as excited about as they are other games, like this week’s DOOM and Uncharted 4 – and the week after’s release of Overwatch.

Here though, is a proper first look at the story. There are some things I find odd; the generals within the KPA, a Korean invading force, are…white dudes? But hey, at least it’s not another game about shooting Arabs, Nazis, Zombies or Russians.

“As raw recruit Ethan Brady, you are plunged into a desperate struggle for freedom as the Resistance try to save the one man who can inspire the people to rise up – Benjamin Walker, the ‘Voice of Freedom’ himself.

What lengths will the Resistance go to to achieve their goals… and will the end ever justify the means?

Weaving state of the art performance capture into a 30 hour open world single-player campaign, Homefront’s dark and brutal story telling will leave you reeling.”

        Me too, I checked, it is safe, there is a lovely score in this trailer, catering with instruments ranging from piano all the way through to a screaming electric guitar, so it is safe, also it is music, not that kak than Kanye claims to make, that dude makes me foam at the mouth, so I’ll stop now…

    Yeah…that white Korean dude premise is not just a little odd, but they’ll probably use the “They are covertly inserted agent, acting as sleepers that would be called upon once the disaster strikes…” Oh, sorry, that’s The Division…

    Is it just me, or do the NPC’s and cars move in a silly way?

    Trailer looks cool. Hopefully the story is good. Graphics remind me a lot of COD at the moment, specifically Ghosts.

    You know, with Arabs, Nazis, Zombies and Russians, I’m starting to wonder who the real troublemakers are…
