Red Faction: Battlegrounds Launch Trailer

The Red Faction franchise is known for its FPS based gameplay, so we found it intriguing when ‘Battlegrounds’ was revealed as a twin-stick arena based shooter with a pulled back, almost isometric, camera.

In celebration of the game hitting the PSN/LIVE in the US a launch trailer has been released showing snippets of gameplay. An EU date will hopefully be coming soon.

  1. Am I the only one who loves this commantator? “IMAGINE WHAT A TANK CAN DO!!!!” XD Ah looks quite decent. Hope we get it free for PS+ in EU

    • Just announced that this is free for PS+ users. With this and stacking free on day of release PS+ is well worth the investment, not to mention all the other great stuff we have had.

      • I know its so awesome as well :)

  2. Looks pretty awful – I know it’s a downloadable game, but you’d think there’d be at least some environment destruction in there. When it said “download and destroy!” near the end I got a little more hopeful, only to find out it meant destroy…enemies. Yeah, like every other game.

    Could just be a bad trailer but as far as I can tell, the game could be called “mars tank” for all it mattered

    • ok, after reading up a bit, it does have environment destruction. Did anyone else see any in the trailer?

      • Nope, but to be honest I wasn’t expecting any. I guess this could refer to the destruction of building, just like in RF:G but this looks like a lot of fun. I loved the download only Battle Tanks game and will get this no matter what. :)

      • It DOES have destruction, but its mainly of explosive barrels and stuff. Well worth the free download, I might even have payed money for it.

  3. I was in the beta for this. It was okay. Nothing amazing.

    I’ll probably just hold on for Armageddon.

  4. red faction 1, is still one of the best FPSs ive played. Sadly the only good thing left, is the title.
