The redfaction.com domain is active once again.
THQ has the official Red Faction website back up but for whole new reason; Red Faction: Guerrilla!
Red Faction: Guerrilla is a multi-platform video game in development by Volition, Inc. to be published by THQ, and set to be released before Q1 2009. On February 20, 2008 during Game Developers Conference '08, THQ revealed the game would be an "open world" shooter.
The story takes place 50 years after the original Red Faction. The EDF who came at the end of Red Faction has stayed and Mars has been dominated by the EDF. Then a guerrilla movement has occurred, resulting in all out war between the miners and civilians on mars, and the EDF. The games goal is to cause as much damage to the EDF as possible, forcing them to leave the district, but they can come back later. It will be a sort of ebb and flow type of warfare.THQ has stated in an interview with Game Informer that they will take GEO-Mod to the next level.
Not a whole of of information in there but at least it is an official confirmation that there will in fact be a Red Faction 3 and with Volition doing the work for it; it should be the quality that the original Red Faction turned out to be only with a whole new revised Geo-Mod gaming engine with superior graphics. Start saving your money people because chances are this Red Faction won't run on most of the systems you are playing the first Red Faction on!
Thanks to DeathFactory on the forum for bringing this to my attention.
