Watch America Crumble in Opening Cinematic for Homefront: The Revolution

America crumbles in today’s cinematic trailer for Homefront: The Revolution, while a new featurette released by developer Dambuster Studios spotlights the malevolent APEX corporation. 

Pitched as a complete reboot of the cult shooter series, The Revolution is situated in occupied Philadelphia, where advanced North Korean forces have descended onto American soil. It’s a setup that paves the way for intense guerrilla warfare, and much of that premise is outlined in the brooding cinematic above. 

Meanwhile, the official synopsis for the shooter sequel-cum-reboot reads as so:

It tells the story of how North Korea rose from the ashes of the Korean War to become a dominant world power, and ultimately occupy a fallen America. Homefront: The Revolution is a complete reboot of the franchise, and features a brand new backstory based on an alternate history in which Korea won the technological arms race thanks to the rise of the sinister APEX corporation.

Homefront: The Revolution is due to arrive on May 17 across PS4, Xbox One and PC. To get up to speed with the APEX corporation, you can check out the featurette, below.
