We have two bits of news today for Homefront: The Revolution.
First, the easiest of the bit. Deep Silver has announced the closed beta start date for the shooter. Homefront: The Revolution will be playable on Xbox One in closed beta form. The closed beta will run from February 11-14, and it will feature Resistance Mode.
You can register for the beta by signing up on the official Homefront site. There’s no specific beta registration page, simply creating an account will do the trick.
Now, what’s Resistance Mode? That’s the other bit of news. Resistance Mode is the four player cooperative gametype in Homefront: The Revolution seen in the trailer directly above. Here’s how it was described in the official press release.
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.
It sounds like the narrative in the cooperative mode is different than what you’ll get in the single player mode.
Homefront: The Revolution will release for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC platforms on May 17, 2016.
