New, High-Rez Red Faction Trailers
10:01 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The official Red Faction web site has been updated with two new trailers of the game in action. With the low and high resolution versions weighing in at 26 and 71 MB respectively, they're probably only for those with a decent internet connection. If you do have the bandwidth, these are worth the download just to see why the world is so excited about this upcoming shooter. A similar movie was released last week, but these two are much cleaner versions in the Bink format.

As the trailer explains, Red Faction puts you on the inhospitable world of Mars as a miner for the Ultor Corporation, a company who's bottom line is definitely one of greed -- not love for its employees. You begin to lead the resistance against the evils of the company, fighting with a multitude of weapons and vehicles to do it. The biggest draw to Red Faction over other FPS titles (as you will see in the trailer) is the game's Geo-Mod engine. This 3D platform has been built from the ground up to allow you to destroy walls, floors, even entire buildings in a realistic way. Other elements like gas or liquid will also move with real-world physics. The all-around quality of the game makes it look like the "Half-Life" of the next-generation 3D engines. Only time will tell, of course, but we're very hopeful this one will wipe past titles from our minds for good.

Red Faction is currently set for a Playstation 2 release later this spring. Mac and PC versions will follow (with other features) in the fall. GraphSim will be publishing the Mac version for Volition, the game's creators. Be sure you've got the Mac Bink player installed to view the movies.
