Red Faction: Armageddon release date

Get your ass to Mars. In June.

Volition's third-person science fiction smash-em-up Red Faction: Armageddon will launch in Europe on 3rd June, THQ has announced.

It'll launch in North America a few days before, on 31st May.

Armageddon builds on the events of Red Faction: Guerrilla and upcoming SyFy live action movie Red Faction: Origins (it's transmedia, baby).

You play destruction expert Darius Mason, who potters about Mars making a mockery of stable buildings.

Armageddon is a different beast to Guerrilla in many ways – action takes place in linear, underground environments, and the main enemy is no longer the oppressive EDF but an alien force accidentally unleashed by Mason.

The game's built on the Geo-Mod 2.0 destruction engine, which allows players to collapse huge structures in a realistic way.

Then, for fun, you can rebuild all you destroy with the Nano-Forge's repair ability.

Tom went hands-on with Red Faction: Armageddon last month.
