Timesplitters 2 is fully playable in Homefront

Timesplitters 2 is playable in its full form within the Homefront: The Revolution shooter. That's right, an entire game is hidden inside another game. To date, most players thought that it was only a part of the game, but it is not.

As you can see in the tweet below, from the main menu it is possible to enter a sequence of commands that allows to switch from Homefront: The Revolution to Timesplitters 2. The code to insert was rediscovered after the original creator lost it.

Here are the sequences to use within the main menu of Homefront: The Revolution to activate Timesplitters 2:

Xbox: LT + Up, LT + Up, Down , LT + Right, RT + Left, RT + B, LT + Y, LT + Y, RT + X, LT + A PlayStation: L2 + Up, L2 + Up, Down, L2 + Right, R2 + Left, R2 + Circle, L2 + Triangle, L2 + Triangle, R2 + Square, L2 + Cross

According to what reported, in order to activate these codes you must first play Homefront: The Revolution and get to a cabinet in a level, where there is a reduced version of Timesplitters 2. Also from the cabinet it is possible to enter a code (different from the one shown) to be able to pass to the full version, but it makes more sense to use the initial menu of the shooter directly.

Will the saga ever return? A TimeSplitters 2 remake was suggested by a SpellForce 3: Fallen God easter egg.

Homefront's missing unlock code to make TimeSplitters 2 fully playable has been found

Earlier this week, the internet was abuzz after a developer revealed a fully playable version of TimeSplitters 2 had been squirrelled away in Homefront: The Revolution. The only snag was the code required to unlock the easter egg had been lost to time - or so it was thought, until now.

Word of the substantial easter egg first surfaced over the weekend, when former Homefront: The Revolution developer Matt Phillips revealed the TimeSplitters 2 cameo seen in Homefront's retail version - two story levels playable on an in-game arcade cabinet - was originally intended to be 'fully playable' via an unlock code that was never publicly released.

Unfortunately, 'the unlock code has been lost to time,' Phillips tweeted, explaining he no longer had the notebook with it in any more. The developer did, however, reveal the code had been shared with a friend to leak in a Discord channel prior to its disappearance ('They called him a liar and banned his account', Phillips noted), and it's this very same friend - Xbox principal software engineer Spencer Perreault - who's re-emerged to save the day.

According to Perreault's tweet, players wishing to squeeze some TimeSplitters 2 action out of their Homefront time, might want to try entering the code 'LT+Up, LT+Up, Down, LT+Right, RT+Left, RT+B, LT+Y, LT+Y, RT+X, LT+A' into the game using an Xbox controller.

But! That isn't quite all. Famed Dark Souls dataminer Lance MacDonald later posted that he'd originally planned to try reverse engineering the Homefront arcade cabinet's menu/input system (found some six hours into the game), but that another player - Fanoto - got there first, discovering a bevy of controller specific 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 perfect excuse to fire it up again. Although obviously, a quicker way to play TimeSplitters 2, if you still have a copy of that, would just be to play TimeSplitters 2.
