Expansion Details Revealed for Homefront: The RevolutionJason Love

It seems Homefront: The Revolution will follow in the footsteps of many other titles and offer a combination of paid DLC expansions and free ones. The free ones will all be for the co-op Resistance Mode, adding more missions to the existing six. The first of these expansions will hit sometime next month.

The new map, Zombopolis, will be used for the game's "Herbal Assault" mode, which sees the plants invading zombie territory to take control of particular areas and culminates in completing a particular objective. It is my guess that the new mini-boss battle will be the final objective for that map. As for the two new characters, the plants will get a new Citron variant (Toxic Citron) and the zombies will get a new Super Brainz variant (Breakfast Brainz).

Though it's not a part of the update, the local co-op feature is still in the works. In fact, the developer even made note of this in their blog post about the patch and that they would provide an ETA for it as soon as possible. Here's a full list of all the updates and additions in the patch.

Snark aside, this is actually a really cool feature. Essentially, when you're running a Twitch stream of the game, you can let your viewers affect your game by using special commands in the Twitch chat that will then translate into things like a horde of zombies appearing or giving you a health boost. This is strictly an optional feature and you can tune how much you want certain interactions occur.

Somber piano riff leading to bombastic orchestral track? Check. Emotional dialogue from one of the NPCs about this being "your time?" Check. Establishing shots of bad guys doing bad things? Check. The trailer definitely hits all those "tug at the heart strings" moments, but to its credit, it also makes me more interested in the game.

Alienation manages to do something few twin-stick shooters achieve these days: defy expectations. Through a combination of well-executed mechanics and a progression system for both the world and player that feeds into that “just one more level” mentality, the game is a time-sink waiting to happen....

Last night utilizing a new custom engine, we played through the classic game's first episode. Supporting full 1080p, new weapons, animations, and plenty of gore - our co-op escapade was fast, efficient and of course...brutal.

If you didn't get a change to check this game out on the previous gen, now is a great time to try it out. The developer has thrown a few fun perks into the mix with a side scrolling mini game and Power Fists Power-up, a previously unofficial mod that was popular enough to be incorporated into the console collections.

In our stream we looked at two very early levels of the game and what makes Alienation not just a twin stick shooter - but a game that borrows elements from many of today's modern day persistent shooters like Destiny and Borderlands. We can't help but admire a really pretty game in the process.

Unlike the Sigmar's Blessing DLC, Drachenfel will run you a few bucks. The exact price hasn't been revealed yet, though the previous paid DLC, Schluesselschloss, cost $2.99 for just one map so I'm guessing this may run somewhere in the $9.99 to $15.99 range.

A few new Transmogrification recipes have been added to the world of Sanctuary. These are all common-quality items that have been added to the loot drop table for certain enemies, rare chests, Rift guardians, and/or Adventure Mode bounties. Along with the new recipes comes a new treasure goblin, the Menagerist Goblin, that can be found out in the wilds. Kill him in time and he'll drop one of the non-combat pets that have been available at various times during the game. The full details of all the changes that were implemented can be found over on the Diablo 3 Battle.net site.
