Instead of online competitive multiplayer, a new four-player cooperative mode called Resistance Mode has been revealed for Homefront: The Revolution
. Players will form a "Resistance Cell" and take on guerrilla missions against the KVA occupying force. The team of freedom fighters can be improved over time, going from "civilians to battle-hardened soldiers." Completing missions will unlock new skills, weapon blueprints, rare equipment, and combat gear.
According to Game Director Hasit Zala, there will be 12 missions in Resistance Mode, with the hope to publish 20 more in the first year. All of the missions will be free to download. The co-op mode will run alongside the single-player campaign, which is said to be more than 30 hours long.
Resistance Mode will be playable for the first time during the upcoming closed beta, which is running exclusively on the Xbox One. The beta will run from February 11th through February 14th, so if you'd like to sign up head over here
