New Red Faction Screens
10:50 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

XGR has posted fifteen 'semi-exclusive' screen shots of Volition's
upcoming FPS Red Faction. Though the Volition team has promised a Mac
version since very early in the game's development, you may recall the
announcment at Macworld that GraphSim will actually be publishing the Mac
version (along with Summoner, their other title). The new screen shots at XGR
look great as ever, though they seem to be from the Playstation 2 version of the
game, which will be released before the Mac/PC builds are ready. In case you're
wondering about some of the game's features, XGR has nicely summarized those as
well:


  • Geo-Modô Engine - the only FPS with real-time, arbitrary geometry modification
  • Advanced physics simulation - supports falling geometry, particles and liquid
  • Land, sea and air vehicles to commandeer and control
  • A completely immersive and compelling storyline
  • Stealth and action driven objectives
  • Varied environments including natural settings unique to the genre
  • Dynamic, real-time lighting including lightmaps, object shadow casting and more
  • Advanced AI behavior in 20 dynamic 3D levels
  • Real-time skeletal deformation and interpolation for silky smooth animations
  • Location-based damage system
  • 2 player mode - split screen death match & Geo-Mod specific modes

You can bet we will be receiving more information on Red Faction as it nears
completion this Spring.
