Red Faction: Armageddon
Red Faction: Armageddon Release Date Breaks Through
Written Tuesday, February 22, 2011 By Richard Walker

THQ has today announced the release date for Red Faction: Armageddon, which sees another member of the Mason family following in the footsteps of Red Faction: Guerrilla's hero by smashing up all and sundry while battling against the EDF and the native insectoid monsters of Mars.

Featuring that same riotous destructible gameplay that made Guerrilla such a guilty pleasure, Red Faction: Armageddon is taking the action underground, with huge cavernous regions presenting just as many opportunities for wanton destruction. Naturally, you'll have a variety of weapons to help buildings collapse and crush who or whatever happens to be underneath the falling rubble.

Red Faction: Armageddon is slated for a May 31st release in North America with a June 3rd date in the offing for the rest of the world.

One of the few Day 1 buys for me this year. I wish Volition would start releasing info on the MP.

The box art for this game reminds me of the Killzone 3 box art. Can't wait for this game though. I still enjoy Guerilla every now and then...

I still don't understand why America gets the releases first? Their market is losing the battle with Asia / Europe.

On Topic: I'm looking forward to this release :)

Oh. Meh.. liked the original. Know how many people will disagree with me, but I honestly couldn't care for Guerilla. Got enough games to be thinking about getting and saving up money for without adding this to the list.

#17 I agree, I was a massive massive fan of the genius FPS Red Faction titles back in the day, on par with Halo for local multiplayer.
But I do not care for Gorilla and I will not care for this, the only thing I care for is this game to hurry up and go gold so that Volition can devote more time and resources to making Saints Row 3 the best sandbox title on the 360..

I personally dont like unrealistic games and i dont like the way that you can smash a building in one hit with a hammer. And yes there is a differance between unrealistic and making a game easier, my friend recently said to me that if i dont like unrealistic games then why do i like assassins creed or fallout or fable or call of duty. the reason is that there is a differance between making a game unrealistic and too hard, yes you can surivive jumping off a building in assassins creed and radiation in fallout and being shot in call of duty but imagine on assassins creed if you broke your leg every time you fell, that would be too hard or you actually died on cod and had to start the campaign again. This game looks to ME a little bit pointless, i saw how fun the previous game was and enjoyed blowing up bridges with the people on them but there is a line between making a game easier and down right stupid, im sure you have an opinion on this and afterall everyone is differant, but in MY opinion this games looks pointless.

Too many good games out this year! ME3, Gears 3, CoD MW3, Skyrim, Assassin's Creed 3 (if rumors are true) and this! I need to seriously start saving up!

"... but imagine on assassins creed if you broke your leg every time you fell, that would be too hard or you actually died on cod and had to start the campaign again ..."

Alternatively, imagine if you had to demolish a building with a hammer, and it took several hours.

Just saying.

I officially hate May. Brink, L.A Noire, Dungeon Siege 3, and Red Faction: Armageddon.. Looks like I'm starting to save early. At least I have a pay day the Friday before the last two :D
