There’s nothing like a bit of fear-mongering to get the adrenaline going. Deep Silver and Dambuster Studios are tapping pretty neatly into the public psyche for latest Homefront: The Revolution trailer, revealing the fall of America via North Korean forces. It all starts of course because everyone was happy snapping up Korean phones and tech gadgets, but before long descends into arms deals, nuclear blasts, and invasions.
Rather stupidly, the US of A falls for the oldest military thriller trick in the book; the KPA has hidden a backdoor hack in all of its technology and weapons, allowing them to shut down the entirety of US military might with the flick of a switch. I mean, did no one play Metal Gear Solid 4? Don’t fall for these tricks.
Dambusters has been getting pretty serious about its PR from Homefront 2 it has to be said, and it’s even gone and made a fake documentary depicting the rise of APEX and the KPA invasion of the US.
All of this tells us precisely nothing as to whether Homefront: The Revolution is going to be any good or not, but at least they’re doing their homework.
Homefront: The Revolution is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on May 17th. Head over to Homefront 2’s game page to check out the system requirements and make sure your gaming PC is ready.
