Red Faction: Armageddon – Hands On


Machinima recently went hands on with the new iteration of THQ’s Red Faction series, and the game looks like it is shaping up to be a completely different experience than Red Faction Guerrilla. The game takes place underneath Mars’ surface and players take control of Darius Mason, Grandson of Alec Mason.

Two big additions to the game are the Magnet gun, which allows you to pull metal towards enemies, and the Nano Forge, which allows you to rebuild destroyed environments in the game. I’m really looking forward to this game, and if this didn’t excite you, check out the Hands On Video above to see some gameplay.

Red Faction:Armageddon is currently slated for a March 2011 release.

    Break stuff, kill people. Sound fun for an hr. Hope they change the game flow formula up.

    I’ll be honest with you guys. When I first saw the trailer preview for this game I thought “This sucks.” But now I”m actually very interested!

    I love destruction mechanics and I’ve never seen one that works interestingly enough to get my attention, but rebuilding environments seems like an interesting way to make destruction possible all around.

    This looks really fresh! I’ll be waiting for more news on this one.

    @pedro Yah it looks like they’ve almost created a new genre of games
