Red Faction: Armageddon trailer explores maximum destruction and minimum history

Although the latest video featuring footage for THQ's upcoming shooter Red Faction: Armageddon is labeled as a look at the "History" of the franchise, it's really a three-minute commercial for blowing everything up on Mars.

The most detail the video goes into regarding the older games in the franchise is to mention they existed with a quick glimpse at the game's box art. Once that "history" is out of the way, developers at Volition discuss the inclusion of aliens into the franchise as well as their love for destruction.

With so much focus and love for blowing holes into walls, we can only assume the Volition office looks a lot like a slice of Swiss cheese.
