Deep Silver has announced details on a new game mode for the upcoming Homefront: The Revolution on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.
Resistance mode focuses on four-player co-op and sees gamers teaming up as part of a Resistance Cell to battle against KFA forces, and includes “thrilling narrative-driven missions” set in Philadelphia.
The new mode includes a wealth of customisation options, as players will be able to kit out their character and unlock new gear such as weapons and abilities as they progress. Resistance mode will feature 12 missions from the get-go, with 20 more scheduled to be made available as free DLC later down the line.
Elsewhere, it has been revealed that the game’s single-player component will take players around 30 hours to complete. Unlike The Revolution’s predecessor, however, the sequel will not include a traditional competitive multiplayer.
Deep Silver also announced that pre-order customers will gain access to the Revolutionary Spirit pack, which features extras such as the Red Skull motorbike skin, the Golden pistol skin, and the Marksman Rifle.
Homefront: The Revolution is the long-awaited follow-up to 2011’s PS3 and Xbox 360 shooter, and takes place four years after the events of its predecessor. Now in the year 2029, the Greater Korean Republic, having lost its stronghold in the western regions of the U.S., has set up a central base in Philadelphia, where a revolution is brewing among its civilians. The game focuses on this group, headed by Dana and Ethan Brady, as they attempt to retake the city.
The game is due out on May 17 in the U.S. and May 20 in the U.K.
