Homefront: The Revolution is among the most anticipated games releasing this year on consoles and PC. The team stated last year that development of the game was going at full speed, but nothing has been said about a release date. Something new on the matter, however, has emerged online earlier today thanks to US retailer Target.
According to PlayStation Trophies, Homefront: The Revolution is going to be released on May 17th in North America. The release date has been revealed by a Reservation Card that Target is giving to those who put down a 1$ deposit to pre-order the game. As the release date has yet to be confirmed officially by publisher Deep Silver, we must treat this as a rumor until an official confirmation comes in.
Back in November during the Paris Games Week, Wccftech had the chance to talk with Homefront: The Revolution Senior Narrative Designer CJ Kershner, who has revealed some interesting details on the game. Mr. Kershner confirmed that the team was shooting for 1080p, 30 FPS for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game. The PC version, on the other hand, won't feature any lock.
Homefront: The Revolution is an open world first person shooter game set in 2029, two years after the events of the original Homefront. In the new game, players will follow protagonist Ethan Brady as he stages a resistance movement against the Korean invasion of Philadelphia.
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.
Homefront: The Revolution is currently scheduled for a Q1/Q2 2016 release date on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
