Homefront: The Revolution promises to realize the promise of the flawed original game by hopefully presenting the players with a much more polished, better conceived of product this time. It seems as though the game, which has spent a lot of time in development, and switched publishers multiple times, has some extremely good ideas- consider, for instance, its Hearts and Minds gameplay mechanic, where the player needs to raise the morale of open world Philadelphia through his or her actions, until each individual neighborhood feels compelled to join you in your fight.
It sounds like an inspired mechanic- the perfect translation of what a fight against an occupying power may feel like, into a video game. The hope here is that the game can pull it off without botching it too much.
You can check out the new featurette that Deep Silver put out, showcasing this mechanic, for yourself below. Homefront: The Revolution launches on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in May.
