Deep Silver have revealed Homefront: The Revolution‘s new Hearts and Minds 101 featurette, showcasing how players can perform actions in the game’s open world. The red, yellow, and green zones in Homefront: The Revolution are there to be liberated, and doing so will earn you the support of the oppressed population of occupied Philadelphia through unique gameplay mechanics.
Through Hearts and Minds, the player’s actions have a direct effect on the world around them, with the ultimate goal being to ignite a revolution against the oppression in Philadelphia. Take a look at the trailer above for a chance to see this interesting new feature in action.
In other news, Deep Silver have also revealed details of a pre-release merit system that players can already start to benefit from. Simply visit Homefront-Game.com and you can begin earning Merits by completing missions on the site to dive deeper into the lore of the universe. Each Merit earned will unlock corresponding piece of Combat Gear from the Red Rebel set, which can be used to customize your co-op character in the full game’s Resistance Mode.
Once merits are achieved, players will see the associated in-game Combat Gear unlock by linking their Homefront profile to their Xbox LIVE, PSN or Steam account. Seven merits are currently available at the launch of the program, with more to come before the game finally arrives.
Homefront: The Revolution is due for release on May 17th, meaning there’s just over a month in which to grab some additional gear before the revolution begins!
