Another Red Faction Interview
8:08 AM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

Another interview has been posted, covering Volition's upcoming FPS game, Red Faction. This time around PC.IGN asked some quick questions of producer Rob Loftus about what kind of gameplay we might expect when RF is completed. The interview goes over some general features of the game, AI, the Geo-Mod engine, weapons, mods but also they ask about vehicles.

Volition has mentioned there are about six vehicles that you will be able to use during the course of the game. You will be able to use vehicles to plow through walls and make great attacks into enemy bases. Here's more from Loftus himself:

IGNPC: How big a role will vehicles play in the game? Tell us a little about each of them.

Rob Loftus: Vehicles will play a large role in the game, both in single player and multiplayer. The player will be able to use vehicles against the enemy and the enemy will do likewise. Well have six vehicles each with their own HUDs and weapons. So far weve released the APC with its mortar and minigun, a submersible equipped with torpedoes, a drilling machine that can burrow through the environment Total Recall style, and a flying combat craft equipped with dual miniguns and heat seeking missiles.

Loftus also mentions in the interview that the game is in pre-alpha and around 45% complete. This means the game still needs a lot more tweaking and adjestments before its release in the first half of next year.
