Following up on the release of the Red Faction: Armageddon, THQ has sent out details on the story and gameplay. They confirm that popular features from RF: Guerrilla will be making a return.
RF:A stars Darius Mason, grandson of Guerrilla protagonist Alec Mason. After Mars' Terraformer breaks down and turns the surface into a wasteland, Mason becomes a miner/scavenger. He makes forays to the planet's blighted surface on behalf of the colonists who now live in underground mines. On one trip to an abandoned Marauder temple, he accidentally releases a "long-dormant evil" - those creepy aliens from the trailer - which threaten the surviving humans.
Armageddon will hit the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC in March 2011. A list of gameplay features is below.
Hell on Mars - Darius Mason can only watch as the surface of Mars is destroyed. Seeking solace underground, an even greater threat emerges against humanity.
Nano Forge - Unleash the devastating force of the Nano Forge with concussive blasts, core-shattering tremblers, and bone-crushing rhino charges.
Extermination Mode - Four players can team up online to battle back the relentless tide of attackers as the mysteries of the ancient threat continue to unfold.
Full Destruction - Tear down separatist outposts, rip apart alien monoliths, and reconstruct colonist defenses with Geo Mod 2.0, the most advanced real-time destruction engine to date.
Fight for Survival - Free colonists from alien cocoons, reclaim cultist fortifications on the surface, and hunt for artifacts deep within alien hives to create unthinkable advanced weaponry.
