Red Faction: Battlegrounds Coming Next Month

THQ has confirmed that Red Faction spin-off Battlegrounds will be hitting the PSN and Live early next month. The game is an arena based vehicular combat affair, which supports up to four player co-op and reminds me of a futuristic version of the classic Vigilante 8.

Volition studio manager, Eric Barker, had the following to say:


“If Armageddon is a big meal, Battlegrounds is a quick, little snack. It’s fun. You’re just going to blow each other up and go crazy. It’s a blast.”

Well, we do like blowing stuff up!

  1. If its nothing like Twisted Metal or dare I say Star Wars: Demolitian then no.

    SO is it 3rd person or top-down?,,,

  2. Vigilante 8 you say? Hmm, could be good. Need a demo though.

  3. Looks like a blast, if you’ll excuse the pun.

    The trailer on viddler looks cool.

  4. I loved Vigilante 8 I got it on Xbox 360 download had a blast and brings memories.
    Think I’ll download a trial before purchasing.
    And yes we do like blowing stuff up! lol.

  5. Coolio

  6. I don’t really fancy it

  7. About time, this was supposed to come 6 months ago, all I’m waiting for now is that game which uses your music and Nexuiz!
