The Story
In the year 2075, the Earth Defense Force (EDF) received a distress signal from a small mining facility on the surface of Mars. A group of rebels calling themselves the Red Faction had overthrown the ruthless Ultor Corporation after years of oppression. The EDF responded by launching a fleet of warships to Mars to aid the miners, bring Ultor to justice and restore order to the Martian colonies. In order to ensure safety and security for the newly liberated colonists, the EDF set up command posts and bases across the planet. Initially, under the EDF's rule, the people of Mars prospered: colonists established homesteads, built towns and independent mining operations and began to stake and work their mining claims. But the more things change on Mars, the more they stay the same.

The troubles began with colonists being driven from their homes and mining claims by greedy, Earth-based corporations. Then came a 50 year turn of events that saw the EDF adopting the heavy-handed tactics that it once stood against. Yet in doing so it also instilled a deep-seated resentment among the miners and settlers of the Martian colonies. One of these new Martians is miner Alec Mason, whose dream of a new life carved out of the course Martian soil was crushed in the face of EDF-ordered curfews, detention centers, beatings, mass arrests and personal tragedy. But as powerful as the EDF is, there is resistance. Mason and a small group of revolutionaries have banded together, taken up the Red Faction name and pledged to again bring about a free Mars. And though their enemy has changed, their battle cry remains unchanged: "Better Red than Dead."

Key Game Features:

Join the Revolution - When the citizens of Mars can no longer bear the injustice of an oppressive regime, the fate of the planet lies in the hands of Alex Mason and the Red Faction.

Open World Guerilla Warfare - You decide who, when, where and how to battle. Utilize guerilla tactics, improvised weaponry, and modified vehicles to lead insurgent attacks on EDF targets. Launch attacks based on your own gameplay style, take on missions in any order you choose, or engage in destructive activities to weaken the EDF’s grip on Mars.

Geo-Mod Technology 2.0 - Use destruction to your tactical advantage, setting ambushes or chain reaction explosions to attack enemy strongholds and permanently modify the game environment. Leverage fully-dynamic physics-based destruction to improvise on the fly: blow holes in a wall or floor to set an ambush or escape, take out a staircase to stop your pursuers, or drive vehicles through blown out walls.

Evolving & Emergent Gameplay - Carve your path through an ever changing landscape as you improvise your combat tactics – mixing gameplay styles, vehicles, weapons and explosives to defeat the EDF.

Epic Sci-fi Setting - Explore the huge, unforgiving Martian landscape, from the desolate mining outpost of Parker to the gleaming EDF capital city of Eos; then tear through the fully destructible open-world environments swarming with EDF forces, Red Faction resistance fighters, and the downtrodden settlers caught in the crossfire.

Multiplayer Combat - There is no place to hide when you put your guerilla warfare skills to the test in a variety of highly destructive 2-16 person online multiplayer combat modes.

PlayStation Network Support - Build your trophy collection and leaderboard placement via full PlayStation Network (PSN) support.

Guerilla Warfare:
You don't stand a chance against the EDF using standard military tactics. The only recourse when the few stand against the many is the use of hit and run tactics. Learn the routes of the patrols and quickest ways in and out of EDF strongholds. By studying these things you can instinctively know when to attack, and when to wait for a better opportunity.

Ambushes are also useful in thinning EDF ranks. Remote charges and proximity mines are your best friend when preparing an ambush. A few well-placed charges on the structural supports of a bridge can do wonders for stopping a convoy dead in its tracks. Above all else, remember this: guerilla tactics are not about fighting fair, they are about winning.


Product Description
Set on Mars, 50 years after the events of the original Red Faction. You take the role of an insurgent fighter with the newly re-established Red Faction movement as they battle for liberation from the oppressive Earth Defense Force. Throughout the fight for freedom, you carve your own path, wreaking havoc across the vast, open-world environment of Mars, from the desolate mining outpost of Parker to the gleaming EDF capital city of Eos.

Utilizing improvised weapons, explosives and re-purposed mining equipment and vehicles, Red Faction: Guerrilla allows you to tear through fully destructible environments in an unforgiving Martian landscape swarming with EDF forces, Red Faction resistance fighters, and the downtrodden settlers caught in the cross-fire. Also features a multiplayer component, including several modes focused on destruction-based game play.

Kotaku's Take on it ...

There were a lot of games the New York Comic Con this year, but of the ones I saw none were more technically impressive than Red Faction: Guerrilla.


What Is It?
Red Faction: Guerrilla is the third game in the series from Volition. This is a somewhat substantial change to the series has the first two games have been from the first-person perspective. The story takes place about 50 years after Red Faction 1 and 2, and takes place completely on the surface of Mars. Not in the mines. It's more of an open-world game where you can walk or drive anywhere at anytime. The big hook in this PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 game is that every single building and environment piece can be destroyed.

What We Saw
I timed 10-minute single player demo on the New York Comic Con show floor.

How Far Along Is it?
The demo was in alpha form with the full gaming coming this June to the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.

What Needs Improvement?
Emptiness inside you: Since all the buildings are destructible, they aren't really filled up with anything. Most of the rooms are completely empty of furniture. In fact everything I noticed that can be blown up is basically hollow.

No Digging: Unlike previous games in the series where you could burrow a hole for seemingly ever and ever, Guerrilla makes it so you can't get down and dirty.

Jumping: While the controls in general are fine, I found the jumping to be just a little wonky, especially when going up alongside a steep incline.

What Should Stay The Same?
Geo Mod 2.0 – The level of destruction is just awesome. Nothing really implodes the same way twice. Ever. I spent most of my time simply throwing remote mines on different areas of structures and detonating them to see the varying result.

Stay down!: What I love probably more than anything else about this game is that anything you blow up stays so the entire game. The only buildings that reform after time are story-based ones. But everything else stays in pieces.

Graphics – You might not notice it right away, but the look of this game is really crisp and colorful. Volition did a great job with this.

Final Thoughts
Probably my surprise game of the show, if I had to pick one. I like the changes they did to the series and it seems like I could spent a lot of time blowing stuff up! Oh, there's a pretty good game here, too. I really hope Volition decides to do a demo before its release.

I like easy games :emb:

Eh, I like the first 2, then they went 3rd person, I don't want to support the change.
I never played the first 2 and preferably like 3rd person unless COD franchise.

BUMP!

did anyone else force themselves to watch the ungodly screen tearing in the intro movie for this game on the demo?


I about cried thinking the game would be like this. I'm a fan of the last two red faction games and was surprised to see they moved over to 3rd person but I like it


I might pick this game up sooner than later, but there are so many other good games coming out... I am for sad. :(
 
This is my type of game, its fun, has good driving mechanics, I can shoot and kick ass with sledge and its 3rd person and has cool explosions ... and not that hard.

I only watched like half the intro the 2nd half i was trying to tell the wifey to shut it ... didnt work out so well so I missed the 2nd half lol .. I'll have to watch again.
