Homefront: The Revolution’s populace and Merits system is in the limelight today with a new trailer and screenshots. Hearts and Minds 101 demonstrates how and why it’s important for players to get the residents of Philadelphia’s various zones on their side. A revolution without the people wouldn’t make much of a revolution—or at least a harder game. To ensure that the people embrace the cause, players will be able to perform actions that sway popular opinion to their side. Screenshots were released demonstrating the differences between when the people are for or against the occupiers. The Merits system was also detailed. This is the mechanic that unlocks new items in the co-op Resistance mode. Players can start earning Merits now at Homefront-Game.com by completing ‘missions’ to gain Red Rebel gear. To see the kit in-game, players must link their Homefront profile to their Live, PSN, or Steam account.
