Red Faction Preview from ECTS
6:00 AM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

While attending the ECTS show in London, PC.IGN had a chance to view Volition's upcoming game of wanton destruction, Red Faction. They describe the status of the game as it is now, compared to four months ago when previously seen at E3. This preview gives you quite a lot of details about the game, backed up with some new screen shots of the amazing Geo-Mod engine in action. For those unfamiliar with ECTS, it is an expo in which games and computing technologies are demonstrated to the public. Here is more on Red Faction:

The game will be comprised of 20 action-heavy levels, but
they wonít be as detached from one another as Quake III
or Unreal Tournament. Instead, Red Faction favors a
much more story-driven plot and a continuous flow like
Half-Life. In Red Faction, youíll assume the role of a
miner for the Ultor Corporation on Mars. While youíre
stationed on the red planet, a mysterious plague breaks out
in the mining camp and itís up to you and a few other
rebellious miners to rise up against Ultor security and find
out exactly whatís happening.
MGON has also posted a preview from ECTS, which describes the 'glass house' demonstration that all the previewers rant and rave about. The preview also features forty screen shots, although many are similar to each other.

Red Faction is being developed with the Mac platform in mind, and will appear on PC and PlayStation 2 as well in the first quarter of 2001.
