MWNY: More on Mac Red Faction
12:42 PM | Patrick Leyden | Comment on this story

As a follow-up to our report last night on this FPS title, here is more information from the show floor: Graphic Simulations is showing Volition/THQ's shooter Red Faction on the
floor at Macworld. This sci-fi first-person shooter takes place on Mars, with the player taking part in a revolt against the evil Ultor Corporation. Red
Faction has gained notoriety for its Geo-Mod Technology, which gives gamers
the ability to alter their environment by allowing walls, floors and other
structures to be destroyed by explosive weaponry and vehicles.


The Mac version of this title reached first-playable status only four days
ago. While there are still a large number of optimizations needed to enhance
the game's speed and texture quality, Red Faction for Mac is shaping up to
be one of the biggest releases of the year. The game is expected to hit
store shelves in November.
