Exclusive Xbox One Beta Landing on American Soil Next Month!!!
Larkspur, Calif – January 12th, 2015 – Deep Silver revealed today that the anticipated upcoming open-world first person shooter, Homefront: The Revolution, will occupy North American retail stores on May 17th, 2016 and May 20th, 2016 in all other territories. Players looking to join the revolution early can sign up now to jump into a closed beta for Homefront: The Revolution, running exclusively on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, in February of this year.
A living, breathing, open world responds to your actions – you and your Resistance Cell can inspire a rebellion on the streets and turn Occupation into Revolution, as oppressed civilians take up the fight. But your enemy has the advantage – superior technology, firepower, heavy armor and air support. You must learn the art of guerrilla warfare – ambush, sabotage, infiltration, deception – and fight a running battle through the war-ravaged suburbs of Philadelphia.
In the ‘This is Philadelphia’ trailer released today, citizens get their first chilling glimpse into the world of Occupied Philadelphia in the year 2029: The birthplace of American freedom has been split into three occupied zones, each zone varying in the level of KPA police activity with each unique zone forcing players to adapt new gameplay strategies in order to further the progress of The Revolution. The ‘This is Philadelphia’ trailer showcases the unforgiving Yellow Zone, distinct from the war-ravaged wastelands of the Red Zone, and the highly militarized Green Zones, the Yellow Zone is a densely populated environment offering a unique challenge and gameplay experience to would-be Freedom Fighters.
Xbox One owners can sign up now to join the revolution in the exclusive Homefront: The Revolution closed beta. Places are limited, and the only way to gain access is through acquiring an Xbox One Beta Token; Deep Silver and Xbox will be running a number of promotions over the coming weeks that will offer the opportunity to claim a Token and take part. Your best chance of getting a Beta Token and staying informed of developments is by registering on the official Homefront website at www.Homefront-Game.com .

This is Philadelphia…
ABOUT THE ‘YELLOW ZONE’
The year is 2029. Four years into the military occupation, America is on its knees.
Like all her great cities, Philadelphia – once the birthplace of Independence – has been carved into three distinct Zones:
The Red Zones are war-ravaged wastelands, where the first armed uprising against the KPA Occupation was brutally crushed. In these uninhabited and desolate ruins, the Resistance wages constant guerrilla warfare against the KPA…
The Green Zones are the highly militarised command centres from where the KPA exercise their power and control. Iconic landmarks of Philadelphia such as Independence Hall have been repurposed to house the KPA Elites and high ranking American collaborators. Breaching these Green Zones would mean suicide for all but the boldest of Resistance fighters…
And lastly, the Yellow Zones. These are the densely populated areas of Philadelphia, where civilians live in constant fear. A mix of Orwellian police state and ghetto slum, the People are kept under the heel of oppression through permanent surveillance, 24-hour propaganda, and an ever-constant military presence.
Citizens can choose between a bleak existence of forced labour, squalid living conditions and meagre rations, or sell their souls for the relative but seductive comforts of collaboration.
But even here in the Yellow Zone, the Resistance is at work. Hiding in plain sight, blending in with the crowd, and weapons concealed until the last possible moment, the last torchbearers of freedom have vowed to dismantle the KPA infrastructure here piece by bloody piece.
As a Freedom Fighter in the Resistance, you’ll uncover safe houses and other tactical locations from which to mount an attack; you’ll disrupt KPA propaganda, disable their security, and infiltrate and destroy high value targets; you’ll intervene to save civilian lives, or assassinate high ranking officials… each action a step forwards to your ultimate goal – Revolution.
