Homefront: The Revolution [official site] is awfully wonky but has some good bits at heart, is how I’d crudely summarise Wot John Thinks of Dambuster Studios’ first-person shooter sequel. His problems were more along the lines of “the AI is dreadful” than poor performance, but evidently that’s been an issue for some. Publishers Deep Silver have announced that they’re working on patches to fix up performance, but don’t have a timeline of when we might see them. Still, they’re going on with plans to release wee free nuggets o’ stuff, starting with a few new outfits and boosters.
Deep Silver said in yesterday’s statement, “we’re also aware that performance – particularly frame rate – is not currently where we want it to be, and we are working on additional patches to help address these issues and more.”
But hey, free stuff?
“In the meantime, the first free content in our post-launch Resistance Mode road map has been unlocked for all players today. All 8 individual pieces of the two new Punk and Anarchist outfits, plus the Punk and Anarchist full body clothing, can be found in your character’s Gear and Clothing menu for players to customize their Fighters with. On top of that, two bonus Hail Mary boosters in your Consumables inventory offer a free instant revive to help you on your way to completing Missions on the hardest difficulty.”
If you’re playing Homefront – and I assume there’s a fair chance of that, given that you’re reading this – how are you finding it?
