The development team gave a great attention to detail while putting rain into the game. Different surfaces, like grass, tarmac, cement, and 140 others, each maintain their own unique feel while either dry or wet. As puddles form in the road and water is sprayed up behind cars, you'll be thankful for the inclusion of windshield wipers in the game. The amount of research and care put into this feature really shows in the trailer above.

Xbox One Getting Exclusive Early Access to Homefront: The Revolution's Beta

Microsoft showed anew trailer for Homefront: The Reveolution during Gamescom and announced Xbox One players will get access to the game's beta this winter.

The trailer for the game showed a thoroughly invaded United States, as a child stood on stage to read pre-written propaganda claiming that the United States was now complacent with its Korean People's Army (KPA) invaders. During that speech, it cut to images of the KPA oppressing the people, and the rebellion fighting and setting off bombs remotely with their smartphones.

The actual gameplay opened with a rebel soldier driving through an invaded city through the streets and across roofs, avoiding the blue light of futuristic scanners. The soldier then got off the motorcycle, used a remote control RC car to blow up a group of soldiers and playing a hacking minigame to establish a communication relay, which rewards a fly-through the city,reminiscent of taking over the towers in Far Cry.
