According to Joystiq, Sony have sent out an email to North American PlayStation Plus subscribers informing them that THQ’s “arena based vehicular combat affair” – Red Faction: Battlegrounds – will launch on April 5th for 10 bucks. Unless you wield a mighty Yellow Cross of Frugality, of course, in that case, it’s yours for free. Chalk this one up for as win in the PlayStation Plus subscription column.
We’ve heard that not everyone has received this aforementioned elusive email so we’re still looking into just how widespread it is. Apparently you have to check your messages on your PS3? That’s a thing it seems.
No news if the offer will be extended to us over here in the Old World. We (don’t ask who, no one knows) did first discover the Red Planet the game is set upon. It would be nice if THQ throws us a Martian bone, too.
