THQ Inc. today confirmed that gamers in North America can get their hands on Red Faction: Armageddon on May 31, while the rest of the world will have to wait a couple of days. International gamers can pick up the game on June 3rd.
Red Faction: Armageddon is set 50 years after the events of the previous game and if you want to get some more detail on the background for the game, make sure to check out the Syfy live-action movie, Red Faction: Origins .
This time around, not only will you be able to destroy structure, thanks to the Geomod 2.0 physics engine, you will also be able to repair whatever you destroy. This is thanks to the new Nano-Forge’s incredible repair ability.
“Red Faction: Armageddon is an incredible new entry in this vaunted franchise, and Volition once again pushes the envelope of technology and science fiction,” said Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President, Core Games, THQ. “Come May 31, players can look forward to collapsing entire buildings on their enemies, using the world as their weapon.”
