Join the Red Fac­tion

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Games -

Ridicu­lous fire­power and crazy lev­els of de­struc­tion await play­ers in Red Fac­tion: Ar­maged­don. Vo­li­tion’s Eric Barker gave Switched On a snap­shot.

WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?

The fourth Red Fac­tion . You are Dar­ius Ma­son, grand­son of Alec Ma­son from Red Fac­tion: Guer­rilla. Dar­ius un­know­ingly un­leashes a men­ace on Mars and hu­mans need to go un­der­ground. Now he must save hu­man­ity by de­feat­ing an in­fes­ta­tion of aliens, and cultists.

WHAT’S DIF­FER­ENT ABOUT IT?

The Mag­net Gun en­ables you to rip out parts of the wall and bring it down on top of peo­ple. It al­lows you to fling your en­e­mies into the air. The Sin­gu­lar­ity Can­non lets you open up black holes, rip­ping stuff into them, then blow­ing it back out. Real time and un­scripted, ev­ery­thing breaks dif­fer­ently each time.

AND YOU CAN ALSO RE­PAIR ANY­THING YOU’VE DE­STROYED?

The weapons you’re go­ing to use will de­stroy stuff, but you can re­pair it. You can do that how you like. You can even use it de­fen­sively to keep re­build­ing the walls so your en­e­mies can­not get to you. Red Fac­tion: Ar­maged­don of­fers you op­por­tu­ni­ties in com­bat that you’re not go­ing to see in many other games.

SO EACH PER­SON WILL PLAY DIF­FER­ENTLY?

When you’re us­ing weapons that al­low you to blow things apart, cut build­ings in half, rip chunks off things and tear them to pieces, ev­ery­one’s sym­phony sounds a lit­tle dif­fer­ent, be­cause of how they use these tools and which ones they fo­cus on.
