Red Faction makes its way to PlayStation 4

It's emulated, and not a remastered version of the PS2 classic, but it works.


Red Faction was a great game for the PlayStation 2 when it came out. Nordic Games - now THQ Nordic - snapped up the license from the ashes of THQ, and has now emulated it for the PlayStation 4.

Don't expect any changes from the original, as this is not a remastered version. It is a PSN game downloadable from the PlayStation Store for $14.99, but the game will still allow you to deform the terrain of Mars, which at the time was a rather groundbreaking achievement in games.

This confirms the PEGI rating listing that leaked back in October for the game. Destroy All Humans had a similar listing, but whether it will be remastered or another emulation is not known.

“Playing Red Faction for the first time is one of my favorite memories on PlayStation 2,” said Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development Director at THQ Nordic, in a statement announcing the release. “The team at THQ Nordic is thrilled to be able to share that experience with a whole new generation of players on PlayStation 4. Ripping a hole through the surface of Mars to access a hidden tunnel for a surprise takedown is about as satisfying as a shooter can get.”
