Players of Homefront: The Revolution will be able to unlock in-game items through a new Merits program, Deep Silver announced today.
”Any registered member at Homefront-Game.com can log in and earn Merits by completing simple actions on the website,” says the official press release. ”Each Merit earned unlocks a corresponding piece of Combat Gear from the Red Rebel set, which can be used to customise your Co-Op character in Resistance Mode.” The Red Rebel set offers only cosmetic bonuses, they added.

In addition, the developers also released a new gameplay trailer that details how your actions will impact the game world and your general progress through the story. You can see the video embedded below.
While I don’t want to get reductive on a game I haven’t yet played, the reward scheme seems directly inspired by Uplay, and the trailer reveals a game structure quite similar to Ubisoft’s open world titles. Given how formulaic and predictable Ubisoft’s annual releases have become, I hope Homefront proves to have a more unique identity than what’s on display here. The game is due to launch May 17 in North America, and May 20 in Europe.
