Homefront: The Revolution gameplay trailer teaches you ‘Guerrilla warfare 101’

Homefront: The Revolution has kicked off a series of gameplay trailers to give us fresh insight into the the game.

The first trailer, titled ‘Guerrilla 101’ takes a look at the combat variety available in the game’s single player campaign and co-op Resistance Mode.

In Homefront: The Revolution, players must lead an uprising against the technologically superior KPA, a Korean organisation which has taken over the United States. In Philadelphia, 2029, you must use everything at your disposal to turn the tide.

Here’s a list of some of the ways you’ll be able to take the fight to the KPA:

Modify your weapons: Use the in-game and on-the-fly weapon customization system to tailor your weapons to your style of play. Add a silencer to infiltrate under the cover of darkness in a dynamic day and night cycle, or equip a muzzle break to forego stealth in favor of loud firepower. Equip different sights and scopes or different grips to go from short range mobile stability to long range accuracy.

Convert your weapons on the fly: Convert your pistol to a submachine gun, your assault rifle to a mine launcher, your crossbow to a flamethrower, and more!

Build explosives in open world combat: Use Explosive and Incendiary devices to ambush the KPA, Distract patrols, or Hack enemy cameras and drones to turn enemy tech against them. Modify any of your Guerrilla Toolkit items with a bit of good old American ingenuity; throw it, trigger it, lay a trap, or put it on an R/C Car to take direct control.

Use the terrain: This city is your city. Learn your environment to know where to strike from, and where to escape to. In the urban population centers of the Yellow Zones, strike unseen and melt away in the city’s alleyways. In the war-torn Red Zones of Philadelphia, hit hard and unexpected, then jump on your motorbike to evade the inevitable KPA reinforcements.
