Many players have been complaining about HOMEFRONT: The Revolution’s less than stellar framerate issues and the developer wants you to know that they are aware of the issue and vow to make improvements. This includes future patches to to address performance issues.
While I haven’t really seen any framerate issues while playing (or just haven’t really noticed because I’m enjoying the game too much), I have been slightly annoyed by instances where the game would just freeze up for a few seconds while loading new content or while interacting with certain things. In these instances, it does interfere with the flow a bit so hopefully that gets sorted out too.
Deep Silver and Dambusters Studios’ official statement below:
The Revolution is now finally available worldwide, and we hope you are enjoying your first steps in Occupied Philadelphia as a member of the Resistance. It has been a long road for us, and we’re only getting started.
But we’re also aware that performance – particularly frame rate – is not currently where we want it to be, and we are working on additional patches to help address these issues and more. Patch notes per platform will be available on the community forums and on Steam when they go live.
In the meantime, the first free content in our post-launch Resistance Mode road map has been unlocked for all players today. All 8 individual pieces of the two new Punk and Anarchist outfits, plus the Punk and Anarchist full body clothing, can be found in your character’s Gear and Clothing menu for players to customize their Fighters with. On top of that, two bonus Hail Mary boosters in your Consumables inventory offer a free instant revive to help you on your way to completing Missions on the hardest difficulty. Use them wisely!
Beyond improvements and content, we aim to have three additional polished Missions for Resistance Mode available by the end of June, with more free Missions to come after that.
It’s always great when the developers communicate with their fans and address issues that players might have with their game. It’s even better when they also promise to do something about those issues.
