Confirming Target’s leak, Deep Silver announced today that Homefront: The Revolution is releasing on May 17 in North America and May 20 in Europe for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Taking place in Philadelphia in the year 2029, Homefront: The Revolution is an open-world first-person shooter developed by Deep Silver Dambusters Studios. Along with the single-player component, online co-op for up to four players will be included.

Accompanying the new This is Philadelphia trailer today, Deep Silver released this description for Homefront: The Revolution:

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 armor 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.

In the ‘This is Philadelphia’ trailer released today, citizens get their first chilling glimpse into the world of Occupied Philadelphia in the year 2029: The birthplace of American freedom has been split into three occupied zones, each zone varying in the level of KPA police activity with each unique zone forcing players to adapt new gameplay strategies in order to further the progress of The Revolution. The ‘This is Philadelphia’ trailer showcases the unforgiving Yellow Zone, distinct from the war-ravaged wastelands of the Red Zone, and the highly militarized Green Zones, the Yellow Zone is a densely populated environment offering a unique challenge and gameplay experience to would-be Freedom Fighters.

A February beta was announced for Homefront, but it’s exclusive to Xbox One.
