If you’re looking for a reason to go back to last year’s Homefront: The Revolution, now may be the time! Several new updates were released today, including the last single player DLC, the addition of Trial mode on consoles, and an upgrade in visuals for PlayStation 4 Pro players.
Of all the updates, the inclusion of the final part of the single player is certainly the highlight here. The DLC is aptly called Beyond The Walls and takes place outside the walls of Philadelphia, the final stronghold of the Resistance. Deep Silver goes on to explain that the DLC sees a NATO agent attempt to “contact the Resistance with information that could lead to the end of the nightmarish regime of the KPA.”
PlayStation 4 Pro owners will now be able render the game in 1440p, but it can still be upscaled to 4k. Menus and the HUD will be rendered in 4k. Players can obviously expect to see a bump in the visual quality and fidelity, but the patch is also said to increase frame rate performance that affected the game previously.
This isn’t the first time Homefront: The Revolution was given a big update. Dambuster Studios and Quicksilver released a big update last September that fixed previous performance issues. This included improvements on frame rate drops and load times, along with various fixes to several glitches and bugs.
We reviewed Homefront: The Revolution last year and found that the game was “barely optimized enough, designed well enough, QA tested enough or balanced well-enough from a gameplay perspective to even be declared finished.” Hopefully all of these patches over the last year have helped soothe many of these issues out!
The update is now available on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC and the DLC is priced at $12.99 USD. A Trial mode that lets you play the first four hours of the single player campaign is now available on the Xbox One while the PlayStation 4 will get the new mode on March 14, 2017.
