Homefront: The Revolution performance patch improves the frame rate

Nvidia Homefront

If you’re one of the very few people still playing Homefront: The Revolution on Steam, you’ll be happy to know it’s just got a significant performance patch.

The shooter certainly didn’t make it onto our list of PC’s best FPS games. 

Deep Silver Dambuster say they’veboosted the frame rate a further 15% on top of the 25% improvement already achieved in a previous patch, so it should be a much smoother experience, whatever your setup.

Additionally, the stalls people were experiencing when saving the game have also been significantly reduced. The patch, as many patches do, also squashes a bunch of bugs inCampaign and Resistance Mode, which you can see the full list of in the patch notes.

As for new features, there’s now a HUD customise option, so you can hide certain elements of the HUD and make it less intrusive, be it for immersion or screenshot purposes.

There are also two new maps and the introduction of a scoring system, which indicates a player’s overall experience, for Resistance Mode.

Considering the tiny player count on Steam, it’s reassuring that the studio hasn’t just abandoned the game. Perhaps it will build a small and dedicated community, thanks to this kind of support.
