Deep Silver today unveiled the Homefront: The Revolution ‘Merits’ program, a reward plan for members of the Homefront community.
Anyone can simply go to Homefront-Game.com and begin earning Merits by completing missions on the site to dive deeper into the lore of the universe. Each Merit earned unlocks a corresponding piece of Combat Gear from the Red Rebel set, which can be used to customize your co-op character in Resistance Mode.
Once merits are achieved, players will see the associated in-game Combat Gear unlock by linking their Homefront profile to their Xbox LIVE, PSN or Steam account. Seven merits are currently available at the launch of this program, with more to come between now and when Homefront: The Revolution launches on May 17 in North America.
In addition, the new ‘Hearts and Minds 101’ featurette showcases how players can perform actions in the open world – the red, yellow, and green zones – in Homefront®: The Revolution, and earn the support of the oppressed population of occupied Philadelphia through unique gameplay mechanics.
Through Hearts and Minds, the player’s actions have a direct effect on the world around them, with an ultimate goal: Ignite a Revolution.
