In the lead-up to the 2010 E3 Expo, THQ and Volition have announced the production of another addition to the successful Red Faction franchise.
Titled Red Faction: Armageddon, the new game will be a sequel to the recent Red Faction: Guerrilla, taking place 50 years after Mars was freed by the resistance - putting players in the shoes of one Darius Masno, the grandson of heroes Alec Mason and Samanya.
Leveraging Volition’s groundbreaking Geo-Mod 2.0 technology, Red Faction: Armageddon offers never-before-seen physics-based weaponry that redefines gameplay in the shooter genre. Utilizing Darius’ Nano Forge abilities, players are presented with a wealth of new strategic options including reconstruction technology and the Magnet Gun in their battle to save humanity. From lava tubes to ice caves, gamers will discover a new playground for epic battles in both the single-player campaign and multiplayer co-operative modes.
Red Faction: Armageddon is positioning for a March 2011 launch on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
