Red Faction Interview, Screen Shots
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A new interview has been recently posted by the German 'zine Zocks featuring Alan Lawrance of Volition. A leftover piece from the recent ECTS, this interview discusses Volition's demonstration of their upcoming multiplatform shooter Red Faction. Although it is somewhat 'broken' English, the answers are easy enough to understand. The screen shots included speak the universal language of eye candy. Here's a clip with Lawrance explaining how the glass shatters in the game:

This is just a test-level showing off the glass-breaking. You notice, that the glass is breaking apart from the impact point and each shard of glass has it's own physics applied to it - bounces realistically off the walls and fall to the ground [destroys some more glass: the first hit made a hole in the glass, looked like a smashed car window, the second hit made the complete glass falling onto the ground]
This is just one of the physics engine's features. The Geo-mod engine, as its called, will allow players to break windows, topple walls and even blow holes in the terrain. And this is just part of Red Faction's amazing list of features, along with amazing graphics and an in-depth story.

If you're looking for more screen shots of Red Faction, Fragland has received ten very-high-resolution pics from Volition. While they aren't all new, you've probably never seen more detailed shots of the game in action, so be sure to check them out. Red Faction is due for the Mac, PC and PS2 in the first half of next year.
