  • Homefront: The Revolution - Co-op Mode Details and Xbox Closed Beta Announcement

    A new trailer and plenty of new details came out today for Homefront: The Revolution, the open-world sequel in development from Dambuster Studios and Deep Silver. Some of today's big news focuses on the co-op "Resistance Mode" that will be featured in the game alongside the "Freedom Fighters" gameplay trailer that went out.

    The biggest news might be the announcement of a closed beta for the game on the Xbox One. The beta will begin February 11 and run until February 14.
    Resistance Mode is a brand new four-player co-operative online experience. Form a Resistance Cell with your friends online and wage guerrilla warfare against the KPA military in thrilling narrative-driven missions across occupied Philadelphia. Customize your personal roster of Freedom Fighters as you and your teammates go from rookie civilians to battle hardened soldiers. Unlock new skills, earn weapon blueprints, rare equipment and combat gear to upgrade.

    Xbox One owners can be the first to try it out when the Closed Beta runs February 11-14 exclusively on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. In addition, registered members of the Homefront community may also be invited to participate in a sneak preview of Resistance Mode via one of the upcoming Closed Beta Stress Tests which will take place on Friday, January 29th and Friday, February 5th on Xbox One.

    "Homefront: The Revolution is this team's most ambitious project yet," said Hasit Zala, game director at Dambuster Studios. "In addition to our epic 30-plus hour single-player campaign, we expect to launch Resistance Mode with 12 Missions, packed with re-playability, and hope to release another 20 Missions within the first year. To ensure our community can always play together, all Resistance Mode Missions will be free to download."

    All pre-orders for the game will receive the "Revolutionary Spirit" pack. The "Revolutionary Spirit" pre-order offer gives players unique skins and instant unlocks of select weapons for the campaign. The Revolutionary Spirit pack available at all retailers includes: the Red Skull motorbike skin and the Golden pistol skin for campaign along with instant unlocks of the Marksman Rifle, Sniper Scope and Remote Explosives for your Resistance Mode character.

    Homefront: The Revolution is out on May 17 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
