New Red Faction Screenshots
9:07 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

PC Gameplay has recently posted some new screen shots of Red Faction, Volition's futuristic first-person shooter. Already out for the PS2, this game will soon be out for both the PC and Mac as well. Besides having the usual bells and whistles of any good FPS, RF's most notable feature is its Geo-mod engine, which allows players to blow up and deform everything in the game. The significance of these shots over previous ones is that these are from the PC version, rather than the PS2 version which was previously used for screen captures.

The new shots themselves show some interesting enemies. Several different types of armored human enemies can be seen, each of them wielding different weaponry. There are also shots of some bizarre-looking crab/bat creatures threatening the player in what looks like an almost completely dark environment.

One of the shots also shows what appears to be a friendly NPC communicating with the player. Going by the name Masako, this NPC simply quotes: "I'd stay myself, but I have other matters to attend to." This is said while the player is in the middle of a raging firefight.

For a look at these shots as well as a brief blurb on the game, be sure to head over to PC Gameplay's site for the full array.
