Red Faction 4 has been known to exist in some form for some time now, and many have even known the supposed title of this game, because of some registered domains that were dug up. Recently Red Faction: Armageddon was announced this month before E3.
Volition will once again take the reigns on this title as the game’s events will take you back to Mars, and sees characters underground, much like the first game in the series. It’s also a third person action title like 2009’s Red Faction: Guerrilla, and so far has been compared to Dead Space or even Doom 3, looking at the screenshots and the trailer which have been made public.
In the game you’ll play as Darius Mason, grandson of Alec Mason from RFG, and destroy environments as in tradition in Red Faction games with Geo-Mod 2.0 tech, with some physic based weapons like a Magnet Gun, and you’ll get to try all this out in singleplayer and co-operative modes. According to a THQ press release, the game is set underground 50 years after the events of RFG, because the surface has been rendered uninhabitable, and there’s a war on.
The game should be out next year, with the game scheduled for a March 2011 release date, with the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 as set platforms.
