Earlier today, the web was abuzz after a designer exposed a completely playable variation of TimeSplitters 2 had actually been squirrelled away in Homefront: The Revolution. The just snag was the code needed to open the easter egg had actually been lost to time – or so it was believed, previously.
Word of the considerable easter egg initially appeared over the weekend, when previous Homefront: The Revolution designer Matt Phillips revealed the TimeSplitters 2 cameo seen in Homefront’s retail variation – 2 story levels playable on an in-game game cabinet – was initially planned to be “totally playable” by means of an unlock code that was never ever openly launched.
Unfortunately, “the unlock code has actually been lost to time,” Phillips tweeted, discussing he no longer had the note pad with it in anymore. The designer did, nevertheless, expose the code had actually been shown a pal to leakage in a Discord channel prior to its disappearance (“They called him a phony and prohibited his account”, Phillips kept in mind), and it’s this really exact same buddy – Xbox primary software application engineer Spencer Perreault – who’s re-emerged to save the day.
According to Perreault’s tweet, gamers wanting to squeeze some TimeSplitters 2 action out of their Homefront time, may wish to attempt going into the code “LT+Up, LT+Up, Down, LT+Right, RT+Left, RT+B, LT+Y, LT+Y, RT+X, LT+A” into the video game utilizing an Xbox controller.

But! That isn’t rather all. Famed Dark Souls dataminer Lance MacDonald later posted that he’d initially prepared to attempt reverse engineering the Homefront game cabinet’s menu/input system (discovered some 6 hours into the video game), however that another gamer – Fanoto – arrived initially, finding a bunch of controller particular unlock codes, as seen above.
So there you go; if you still have a copy of Homefront: The Revolution to hand, you now have the ideal reason to fire it up once again. Although undoubtedly, a quicker method to play TimeSplitters 2, if you still have a copy of that, would simply be to play TimeSplitters 2.
