Red Faction Preview
10:05 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

CGO has posted a preview of Volition's upcoming shooter Red Faction. It's a nice overview of the known facts so far about the game, covering the amazing Geo-Mod engine, which will allow players to destroy large parts of buildings and terrain. There's also info on some of the game's other features, such as the six vehicles the player can control. Here's an excerpt describing these tools of destruction:

Red Faction will also include six vehicles for your amusement-an APC with a hard-mounted machine gun and mortar launcher, a hovering fighter craft with a chain gun, a submarine-like craft with torpedoes, and a large drill (also directly...er...borrowed from Total Recall). Vehicles will primarily be designed to solve single problems within the game; for example, you might come to a dead end, engage in a firefight around the giant drill and then use it to burrow into the wall (it's better at that sort of thing than you are).
Red Faction is definitely looking to be an amazing title once it is released early next year for Mac, PC and Playstation 2. We'll keep you posted as more information on the Mac version becomes available.
