TimeSplitters 2 4K Remaster Hidden in Homefront: The Revolution


With Easter having simply handed final weekend, recreation builders had been invited to share the very best Easter eggs they’d ever hidden in a recreation. One of many extra stunning replies was from Matt Phillips relating to a totally playable native 4K port of TimeSplitters 2 hidden in Homefront: The Revolution.

The sport could be discovered on a beat-up arcade machine in a jail advanced known as The Bourse within the Philadelphia space of Homefront. Interacting with the machine permits gamers to attempt the Siberia and Chicago ranges in TimeSplitters 2, though these weren’t in 4K and regarded pretty much like their authentic graphics. Hackers had beforehand discovered the supply recordsdata for the sport’s remaining ranges hidden throughout the depths of Homefront’s code however had by no means been in a position to work out how one can make them playable. It seems a local 4K port of the complete TimeSplitters 2 recreation could be activated on that very same arcade machine so long as gamers have the code.

The issue is the code has been “misplaced to time.”  Phillips now not has the pocket book wherein the code was written. Whereas the code was handed on to a good friend to be made public on Discord, the channel discovered the information to be so unbelievable they banned the good friend’s Discord account. Any hope of the sport ever being playable once more relaxation with resourceful hackers to work it out.

Hackers had been additionally issued one other problem. TimeSplitters 2 piggybacks on prime of Homefront‘s co-op mode. If anyone was in a position to hack two or extra arcade machines into any of the co-op maps, the machines would boot to the multiplayer menu of TimeSplitters 2 with two maps out there to play. Whether or not that mode would really work is debatable even for Phillips who known as it “a really janky prototype,” including Homefrontby no means supplied devoted servers” for it.

TimeSplitters is considered one of ten PS2 franchises we lately mentioned we’d prefer to see revived. The franchise appeared doomed after TimeSplitters 4 was placed on maintain and TimeSplitters Rewind appears to be caught in improvement limbo. Nonetheless, the franchise now rests with THQ Nordic, Dambusters’ guardian firm, and Phillips reckons this implies there’s hope for the franchise to come up as soon as once more.
