Red Faction: Armageddon Revealed, Due in 2011

BOOM widget 102056 The fourth instalment of Volition's Red Faction franchise will be named Red Faction: Armageddon and see the smash-happy shooter series returning underground, publisher THQ has announced.

Set fifty years after the events of Red Faction: Guerrilla, Armageddon will see the plucky Martian colonists returning to the tunnels that played host to the first two Red Faction games, only to discover that there is indeed life on Mars--and it's none too friendly.

As well as smashing things down--courtesy of the Geo-Mod 2.0 engine again--Armageddon will let players reconstruct structures using the 'Nano Forge' gizmo, which also offers other abilities including a "Magnet Gun."

Red Faction: Armageddon is slated to hit PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in March 2011.
