Red Faction is Back and (Literally) Still Breaking Ground on PlayStation®4
First-Person Shooter that Empowered Gamers to Modify Their Game World Available Now!
December 22, 2016 - Vienna, Austria – THQ Nordic today announced that Red Faction,critically acclaimed for its GeoMod™ engine, has been emulated for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and is now available for download for $14.99.
When Red Faction made its debut on PlayStation®2 in 2001, it quickly won over discerning shooter fans eager to blow up their game environment, in real time, ultimately changing their overall game experience:
“An absolute must-have game for the PlayStation 2, and it’s the best single-player first-person shooter by a long shot.” – IGN
“One of the best first-person shooters of the summer, if not ever for the PlayStation 2.” – Total PlayStation
“A great game because it takes interaction with your game environment to a new and remarkable level. But it doesn’t stop there.” – GameZone
“With its innovative Geo-Mod technology that allows players to blast away the environment as well as enemies, and an awesome (and lengthy) storyline, this game packs in plenty of thrills.” – GamePro
“We have to admit that most first-person games nauseate us, but Faction’s smooth graphics and easy gameplay make it hard to put down.” – Maxim
In Red Faction, a revolution has begun on Mars, and you are at the forefront. As part of a rebellious organization known as Red Faction, you must battle through 20 levels that feature deep seas, natural caves, Ultor Corporation's bases, and more. Hijack five land, sea, and air vehicles--each equipped with weapons--including an ATV, a submarine, and a high-flying fighter. Help yourself to 15 weapons of mass destruction, such as railguns, rocket launchers, riot sticks, and heavy explosives. Stealth, cooperation, and action are all important to achieve success.
“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. “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!”
