A closed beta will be running exclusively on Xbox One from February onwards. To take part, players need to have an Xbox One Beta token. Deep Silver and Xbox will be giving these away over the next few weeks. Players are encouraged to register on the Homefront website to stay notified when giveaway events will be happening.

Homefront: The Revolution takes place in 2029. Protagonist Ethan Brady leads a resistance movement against the army of a Korean invasion in the city of Philadelphia. It will feature a single-player campaign and a four-player online co-op mode. Despite being attached to the first Homefront game, developer Dambuster Studios alleges that "everything is new" for the game, and that there is a reason why it was not titled Homefront 2.

The game's launch date announcement confirms the release date which was leaked online last week. Homefront: The Revolution was originally scheduled to launch in 2015, but was delayed to 2016. The first Homefront game was published by THQ, but when the publisher went bankrupt, Crysis developer Crytek stepped in to buy the franchise for $544,000. Crytek later sold the game to Deep Silver, which put its new Dambuster Studios to work on The Revolution.
