It’s the year 2029, four years after the start of North Korea’s invasion of the United States, which you may have witnessed in the original, first person shooter, Homefront. The brutal Korean People’s Army, or KPA, rules the country with an iron fist. The American people are dejected, down-trodden and without hope.
Philly has become a ghetto in which her once-proud citizens now live in a police state in which merely surviving takes all their resources. Surveillance drones buzz endlessly overhead. Heavily armored troops and vehicles patrol the streets – “freedom” is barely a memory.
You are Ethan “Birdy” Brady, the newest recruit and youngest member of the resistance. And it’s up to you to help turn this all around – one mission at time, one victory at a time and one block at a time. Win the support of the people and they will rise up to help you take the city back, and hopefully kick-start a revolution that will win the country back in the process.
Homefront: The Revolution’s premise may sound familiar but the setting and core game mechanics have definitely changed. While the original first-person shooter kept you on a tight, linear path, The Revolution drops you in a completely open world in which you decide where to go, and what to do, next.
Your enemy has superior technology, firepower, heavy armor, air support, and numbers. Under the guidance of your veteran resistance cell leaders, you must learn the art of guerilla warfare. Ambush, sabotage, infiltrate, deceive, and outwit the KPA in a running fight through the war-torn streets of the city.
It’ll be up to you to decide how to best employ these methods to establish new bases and safehouses, and recruit new revolutionaries to your cause. You’ll also need to explore the city to scavenge the parts you’ll need to build better weapons and equipment ranging from submachine guns and rocket launchers to remote-controlled cars laden with explosives.
As you get stronger, and build a network of support, you will be able to delve deeper into the heart of enemy-controlled territory and take out increasingly vital, and more difficult, targets. Make the right choices and eventually you will plant your boot firmly on the KPA’s behind and send them packing.
