Homefront: The Revolution will begin its uprising on May 20th, 2016, but those who can’t wait to explore Occupied Philadelphia can start earning Merits that can be used to earn in-game content once the title releases on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
The Homefront: The Revolution Merits Program will require players to go to Homefront-Game.com to begin earning Merits simply by completing missions on the site. Each mission will take players deeper into the lore of the universe, with each Merit earned unlocking a corresponding piece of Combat Gear from the Red Rebel set. The Combat Gear can then be used to further customize your co-op character in Resistance Mode.
In order to retrieve the associated in-game Combat Gear, you’ll need to link your Homefront profile with your Xbox Live, PSN, or Steam account. Seven merits are currently available for the launch of the Merits Program, and more will be available in the coming weeks.
In addition to the launch of the Merits Program, Deep Silver has also released a new trailer for Homefront: The Revolution called “Hearts and Minds 101.” The trailer shows players who they can perform actions within the red, yellow, and green zones to earn support from the oppressed population of Occupied Philadelphia.
