Homefront: The Revolution begins its uprising May 2016

Deep Silver has revealed the release date of Homefront: The Revolution. Prepare to rise up starting this May.

Deep Silver has announced Homefront: The Revolution will be released on May 20, 2016 on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

The announcement comes by way of a new trailer titled “This is Philadelphia.” The new trailer offers a glimpse into the world of Occupied Philadelphia in 2029 and the brutal police states known as Yellow Zones.

The densely-populated environment helps to offer unique challenges and gameplay experiences that involve venturing through multiple colored zones. Players will experience the war-ravaged wastelands of the Red Zones, the highly-militarized Green Zones, and everything else in between.

Homefront: The Revolution was hit with a lengthy delay nearly a year ago, which at the time was decided to help allow Deep Silver's in-house development studio, Deep Silver Dambuster Studios, ample time to work on the open-world first-person shooter. Now that we have a tentative release date, we guess its development has been going according to Deep Silver's plan.

      Hope its good and sells for the sake of the studio but I don't want another one of those shooters.

        It looks like Far Cry Urban. Much as I dislike Free Radical/Dam Busters for being dicks when I did a stint there in QA, it was pretty fun when I tried a lengthy demo at a show.

          That sounds a bit more interesting. I'm just getting really tired on near future military shooters. So how were they dicks? Beyond the typical dickyness that most studios in the UK seem to have?

      Cautious optimism, engage! Hasn't this game been through some developer/publisher turmoil?

        Yeah, Crysis bought the rights during the selling off of THQ assets. Then I guess they needed money so they sold it to Deep Silver.

      Hmmm I wonder how it will be? The very first E3 trailer looked really awesome, this vid was all right I guess.

      We shall see, I hope it turns out to be good.

        I really don't understand the hate for the first game. It was a decent shooter, with many similarities to the urban warfare segments of HL2

          The Homefront games can't shirk the veil of racism. They are Yellow Peril personified for the 21st century.
