Red Faction: Armageddon Gets Release Date

THQ has confirmed that its ultra-destructive FPS ‘Red Faction: Armageddon’ will be hitting the US on May 31st, and the UK on June 3rd. The game takes place on Mars, 50 years after Red Faction: Guerrilla. Unfortunately the surface of the planet has become uninhabitable due to a meteor strike, so people live underground. To add to these woes an evil race of aliens have been unleashed onto the planet.

That’s always the way isn’t it? Stupid aliens, coming down here, taking our jobs, snacking on our faces.

  1. So red Faction has gone back to being FPS? It did start out on the PS2 as an accomplished FPS…

    • Whoa!?! it can’t be…. its a third person shooter

      lol mistakes

    • I’m pretty sure it hasn’t.

    • I loved the Red Factions of old, not so fond of the modern iterations though :/

    • I could of sworn i saw some gameplay videos of this and they were all 3rd person.O-o

    • It’s still 3rd person.

  2. Liked the first two, didn’t like Guerilla… the price was quite low but I could’nt get into it.

    Armageddon…. is still a maybe though

  3. I really enjoyed guerilla – the destructive buildings were lots of fun. Repetitive after a while though.

    I guess im not too thrilled its gone underground then

    • On the first level of the Legendary Red Faction you could dig tunnels because of geo-mod. The underground could be awesome!

  4. interesting to see how ‘ultra-destruction’ will work in an underground setting, im guessing there will be some nice cavernous levels, a bit like the movie Total Recall

  5. When I saw the subtitle for this, for some reason the theme song for Pokemon jumped into my head… I never even liked Pokemon!

    • I think we have a closet case of Pokemoniusloverous :D

  6. I think i will wait for the demo to come out as RFG was a bit disapointing and the online multiplayer barely worked.

    • Excuse me for asking but how and why do you keep changing your username? I didn’t think you could do that.

      • You can change your username by filling in the nickname section in edit profile and select display as.

        i got bored with the Solid one that sounded a bit wrong.
        and it could be used as innuendo. I’m not the only one who changes their name.;)

      • Cheers for the reply. Handy to know.

  7. Loved Guerilla and loved what Volition showed off from this so far. It’s going to be a fun ride again!

  8. I really enjoyed the destruction in Guerilla but with this being a linear (I believe?) experience and taking place underground, I can’t help but feel it’s a step backwards.

    • You should watch some of the dev videos on their site. The indoor setting opens whole new possibilities of destruction.

  9. YES, i was afraid it would be in March/April, where my gaming time is already booked up!
