Red Faction patched, double-XP event

Pre-order stuff unlocked, new modes, etc.

Volition has released a big old patch for Red Faction: Guerrilla on PS3 and Xbox 360 and announced its first double-XP weekend to celebrate.

The patch comes ahead of the 13th August release of the Demons of the Badlands DLC, but Volition has packed in a good few additions despite the upcoming premium reinforcement.

As well as a new Wrecking Crew mode and leaderboards, the patch unlocks four additional Wrecking Crew maps that were used as pre-order bonuses so that everyone may now play them.

Handily, it also introduces purple dots on the mini-map to indicate ore deposits. "This will help players to obtain the 'Working the Land' achievement/trophy," the website dryly notes. Innit.

The full list of changes can be found on the Red Faction community site, which also reveals that the double-XP phase following the patch's release overnight will last until midnight Sunday.
