Homefront: The Revolution — North Korea gets a little respect

By | May 9, 2016

Homefront: The Revolution is a game I’ve been waiting for a long time.  Not because of its promising gameplay but because it’s a world ruled by North Korea.

Get the game here:

The year is 2029 in a bizarro world where North Korea has taken over the United States.  Of course, it wouldn’t be North Korea at this point, but just Korea.  The Korean People’s Army rules their colonized territory with a heavy – yet high-tech – fist.

The game takes place in the birthplace of liberty, Philadelphia, and the Americans are once again, rebels, who strike back at their imperialistic oppressor.

Homefront: The Revolution features an open world environment.  There are three zones:

Green: relatively safe, well-fortified.

Yellow: Largest and poorest.

Forbidden: you ain’t supposed to be here, it’s forbidden…

The resistance is not a well-funded, highly-equipped one like in Star Wars.  Guys have to scavenge supplies to make the weapons they need to wage war.  The better you are at finding and MacGyvering, the better your chances of survival.

The game features a 4-player cooperative mode that’s separate from the main campaign.  Resistance requires teamwork and aptly named, “Resistance” mode will test your ability to work together.

North Koreans need a little love.  No one loves them, no one respects them.  But in this world, they get a chance.

The game is available on PS4, Xbox One, Linus, Windows, and OS X.
