Red Faction Preview
3:30 PM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story
Eurogamer has posted a new preview of Volition's upcoming FPS Red Faction. The previews features what appear to be several new screen shots and discusses the story behind this 'revolutionary' shooter. Of course they explain in further details how the game's Geo-mod engine will work and will affect your gameplay. Here is an excerpt:
The amount of damage you can cause is impressive. Blast away at the supports of a guard tower and eventually the whole structure will topple over and crash to the ground, killing anything inside it, not to mention anybody unlucky enough to be caught underneath it. Keep firing rockets at the walls of a room and eventually the whole area will start to look like a chunk of swiss cheese. Obviously there are limits to the damage you can cause - the levels are designed so that you can't blast your way out of them, and metal will usually bring a halt to your excavations. Steel doors and panels, hard igneous rock and reinforced concrete will all prevent your progress, so you can't just smash your way through the game with your rocket launcher.To all accounts, Red Faction is coming along very well. THQ and Volition are still on track and should attain their Q1 2001 release date for Mac, PC and PS2.
