Red Faction Details
8:32 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A host of new information regarding the impressive upcoming FPS Red Faction from Volitionhas been posted on the web recently. Yesterday we brought you word of some very nice new screen shots of the game in action. Now, in their preview of the game, GameSpy does their usual excellent job of explaining what Red Faction is all about. Here's a clip describing the unique Geo-Mod engine:

While playing Red Faction, utilizing the Geo-Mod engine, players will be able to destroy buildings, walls, platforms, and bridges with their weapons.

Imagine being chased by a horde of enemies down a corridor. You reach a dead end with only one rocket left. What do you do? Sit back and hopefully place a money shot to knock out all the enemies? Fat chance. Or how about stepping back from the wall, aiming your rocket at the wall and blowing a hole big enough for you to escape through. You catch our drift? Wipe that smile off your face, this is only the beginning.

Read through the rest of the article for more on the impressive features of this title.

A new Q&A with the makers of Red Faction has also been posted at GA-Source. The quick interview with Asam Ahmad of THQ, the publisher for Volition, covers the basics of this upcoming FPS:

Will Red Faction be similar in terms of gameplay to any games currently out on the market? What were your influences for this game?

Many FPS games tend to get thrown together in the same basket, but where many FPS are getting more multiplayer focused, Volition is re-invigorating an in-depth storyline. Of course multiplayer elements will still be there, and with some new neat tricks....

Mac users tend to be suckers for a game with a good storyline... We're keeping a close eye on Volition as they come closer to releasing Red Faction simultaneously for both Mac and PC early next year.
