There’s a new Homefront: The Revolution gameplay trailer

There’s a new Homefront: The Revolution gameplay trailer – it’s basically the 1984 movie Red Dawn, only without Patrick Swayze.



Homefront: The Revolution gameplay trailer Red Dawn

If you’re not familiar with the original Homefront, a wholly moderate success for THQ back in 2011, it’s a bit like 1980s movie Red Dawn: Communists have taken over the continental United States, and it’s up to the local populace to fight back and reclaim the US in the name of freedom. And capitalism. And eagles and stuff? I don’t know, I’m not American. It’s basically like a wet dream for the NRA, and I’d not be at all surprised to see the Republican Party using it as justification for vetoing gun control.

In any case, Homefront: The Revolution is a similar animal, but as all things must be nowadays, it’s open-world. Yep, we’re tired of every game being open-world, too. If it includes rudimentary crafting and some sort of radiant decision tree that impacts the ending then it’s basically ticking all the current gaming PR buzzword bingo boxes except VR.

Still, based on the Homefront: The Revolution gameplay trailer that’s dropped today, it at least looks half-decent.

Homefront: The Revolution launches May 20, 2016. Pre-order it now from Amazon.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
