So what would it look like if North America was invaded and North Korea took over a city like Philadelphia? This latest trailer for Homefront: The Revolution has a few ideas.
Homefront: The Revolution has been a long time coming, but it looks like we'll finally be able to get our hands on the game come May 17 when it launches for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
This latest trailer for Homefront is called “Guerrilla Warfare 101,” with the explanation that, “to become an effective Freedom Fighter and liberate occupied Philadelphia, you must first learn the art of Guerrilla Warfare.”
In the video, we get a look at exactly what Deep Silver and Dambuster Studios are talking about. With Philadelphia under control of the KPA (Korean Peoples' Army) in the not-too-distant future, you're going to need to utilize some tactics that don't typically show up in series like Call of Duty or Battlefield.
The trailer does a good job of demonstrating how high the odds are going to be stacked against you in Homefront: The Revolution. The KPA has all sorts of high tech gadgetry, including patrolling drones, air support and impressive fire power. In order to take all of that on, you'll be able to take advantage of a modular weapons system, meaning you'll be able to mix and match your firearm for various jobs on the fly. “A resistance fighter adapts to the situation,” says the narrator. “That's how we survive.”
Also at your disposal in Homefront will be the Guerilla Tool Kit, which includes four handy devices you'll constantly be using to take care of business. This kit includes incendiary bombs and IED's, better known as improvised explosive devices. There's also a nifty hack tool, which can put security cameras on the fritz when you need to sneak past. Want to turn a drone on your enemies? Hack the thing and watch the bullets fly. Finally, there's the Distraction Tool which, well, serves as a distraction. If things are getting too hot, throw out one of these babies and you've got yourself a diversion.
And while you can throw any of these devices, trigger them or set them up as a trap, you can also strap any of them to an RC car and guide it to your desired destination. You'll also be able to utilize a motorcycle to get around more quickly and, as you turn the tide of war, you may even convince fellow freedom fighters to join your cause.
Now all we have to do is wait two more months for Homefront: The Revolution to finally arrive.
