Red Faction Nears Completion for PC
10:55 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Voodooextreme has been hosting a feature titled The Red Faction Diaries, in which James Tsai, an associate producer for Volition, has been posting a steady stream of updates regarding the upcoming PC port of Red Faction. For those unfamiliar with the title, Red Faction is a futuristic first-person shooter who's most notable feature is the Geo-Mod engine, which allows for the destruction of practically everything in the game -- walls included.

In his most recent update, Tsai notes that the usual bug fixing and testing is proceeding apace. The single-player game enemy AI movement has also been adjusted to make things feel less sporadic. However, of particular note is his last statement:

Another thing we've been working on is the kind of stuff that typically comes up at the end of a project, like making sure our installer and launcher are good to go, and handling a lot of the stuff that goes into documentation for the game. As we get more and more of this done, it reminds me that we are indeed close to finishing this project and getting it on shelves.
Hopefully, this means that RF will be released soon. Volition did have a working Mac version of RF on display at the recent New York Macworld, which is a good sign that the Mac release could closely follow the PC version.
