August 4, 2015Written by Jason Dunning

Unveiled during the Xbox gamescom 2015 briefing, the new trailer for Homefront: The Revolution is titled “Thank You” and helps set up the story and setting of the game.

A gameplay demo was also shown off today:

An open-world first-person shooter, Deep Silver talked about The Revolution:

Homefront: The Revolution throws players into an alternate near future dystopia, where a humanitarian crisis has brought the USA to its knees under the brutal military control of a globally dominant Korean corporation. Surveillance drones, armoured patrols and police violence have become every-day life in Philadelphia, the once proud birthplace of American independence. However, in the ruined outskirts of the city, resistance is getting stronger…

On their path to freedom, players have to fight a seemingly un-winnable guerrilla war against a superior military force. Using hit and run tactics, ambushes and infiltration, the resistance relies on surprise attacks and an arsenal of improvised weapons to throw back the oppressors and spread the flame of revolution.

A multiplayer beta for the game is coming exclusively to Xbox One in Winter 2015, so hopefully there will be a PlayStation beta at some point in 2016.

From Deep Silver and developer Deep Silver Dambuster Studios, Homefront: The Revolution is releasing in Spring 2016 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It will be playable at gamescom this week.
