Join the Red Faction
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.
