Red Faction: Armageddon details fleshed out

by Prima Games Staff

THQ have released the name and a few details of upcoming shooter, it’s been given the title Red Faction: Armageddon and will be coming in March 2011 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

They also let a new trailer out the proverbial bag on Friday which you can see right here. It makes it clear the game’s set years after previous title Guerilla, in a time where mankind is no longer able to survive on the surface of Mars due to the destruction of the planet’s terraforming technology.

The game follows Darius Mason, who’s the grandson of Alec Mason and Samanya from the previous title. Our main protagonist is a scavenger by profession and mistakenly alerts a race of creatures who had long been hibernating underneath the planet’s surface.

It seems the slumbering race weren’t too happy about being woken up (sounds familiar) and have decided to destroy the human race (thankfully not so familiar in my book), and you need to sort it out. Your task is to rescue the colonists, make alien weapons and kill the baddies.

The game involves, you guessed it, a lot of blowing stuff up, including the famously destructible Red Faction scenery.

Also included in the mix is a new mode named Extermination in which four players are required to battle wave upon wave of creatures.
