Homefront: The Revolution – What Is The Yellow Zone?

George Orwell’s 1984 all over again

The year is 2029. Four years into the military occupation, America is on its knees.

 Like all her great cities, Philadelphia – once the birthplace of Independence – has been carved into three distinct Zones:

The Red Zones are war-ravaged wastelands, where the first armed uprising against the KPA Occupation was brutally crushed. In these uninhabited and desolate ruins, the Resistance wages constant guerrilla warfare against the KPA…

The Green Zones are the highly militarised command centres from where the KPA exercise their power and control. Iconic landmarks of Philadelphia such as Independence Hall have been repurposed to house the KPA Elites and high ranking American collaborators. Breaching these Green Zones would mean suicide for all but the boldest of Resistance fighters…

 And lastly, the Yellow Zones. These are the densely populated areas of Philadelphia, where civilians live in constant fear. A mix of Orwellian police state and ghetto slum, the People are kept under the heel of oppression through permanent surveillance, 24-hour propaganda, and an ever-constant military presence.

Citizens can choose between a bleak existence of forced labour, squalid living conditions and meagre rations, or sell their souls for the relative but seductive comforts of collaboration.

But even here in the Yellow Zone, the Resistance is at work. Hiding in plain sight, blending in with the crowd, and weapons concealed until the last possible moment, the last torchbearers of freedom have vowed to dismantle the KPA infrastructure here piece by bloody piece.

As a Freedom Fighter in the Resistance, you’ll uncover safe houses and other tactical locations from which to mount an attack; you’ll disrupt KPA propaganda, disable their security, and infiltrate and destroy high value targets; you’ll intervene to save civilian lives, or assassinate high ranking officials… each action a step forwards to your ultimate goal – Revolution…

Homefront: The Revolution is scheduled to release on May 20, 2016 in Australia and New Zealand on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
