THE TIME HAS COME TO GO BEYOND THE WALLS IN THE SPRING
UPDATE FOR HOMEFRONT®: THE REVOLUTION
Multiple updates including: Trial Mode on consoles, the final piece of single player DLC and enhanced visuals for PS4 Pro owners
Philadelphia, PA – March 8, 2017 – Deep Silver and Dambuster Studios this week began the rollout of the Spring Update for Homefront: The Revolution. This includes a full free trial version of the game for Xbox One, the all-in-one entertainment system from Microsoft. The free game trial for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system will go live on March 14th. Additionally the update includes the third and final piece of single player DLC, Beyond The Walls and a dedicated patch for PS4 Pro™ owners.
The trial version of the game, available on consoles this month, contains the entire first ‘Red Zone’, offering up to four hours of single player gameplay, and unlimited access to Resistance Mode, the online co-operative mode in Homefront: The Revolution.
For PlayStation 4 Pro owners, a specific patch went live on March 6th, as the first part of the two stage update. This patch has the noticeable addition of HDR, along with the game world now being rendered to a 1440p buffer before up-scaling it to 4k to achieve a greater level of graphical fidelity.
The final piece of DLC content for the game, Beyond The Walls, is released today and takes players to a brand new environment - the rural heartlands of Pennsylvania. It begins with the final stronghold of the Resistance, Philadelphia, about to fall to the counter-insurgency might of the KPA. With the second American Revolution seemingly crushed, a glimmer of light appears in the darkness: A NATO agent attempts to contact the Resistance with information that could lead to the end of the nightmarish regime of the KPA. This is your final chance to free America, but will the KPA find you before you get the chance?
Beyond The Walls is free to all holders of the Homefront Expansion Pass, and available to purchase separately for $12.99. It is ready to download now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC via Steam.

@KORNdog: Yeah, really great story. Also, make sure to replay a second time, the enhanced edition has much more elements and story for the second playthrough. It's worth it. (1 Hour ago)
Quite frankly, I'm excited for the StarCraft Remaster. I haven't played the original in years, and even though my brother has the CDs - and DLCs - it's very old game design wise. (1 Hour ago)
That oxenfree story is going to be sticking with me for a while. Damn... (1 Hour ago)
@GriftGFX: Absolutely. It generates good PR. EA does it with the "Free on the House" games. And Ubisoft did it with the "Ubi30" games. Still, it's generous to allow people to play these games for free (1 Hour ago)
