The followup to one of my favorite games of 2009, Red Faction: Guerilla, is borrowing a little from the horror genre as it goes under the surface of Mars. From what we’ve seen of the game so far Armageddon looks to be shaping up quite nicely, and while I don’t know about you, I’m all for mixing a little Dead Space into my Red Faction mix. The game releases for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on May 31st for those of us in The States, June 2nd for the Aussies and a day later in the UK.
For the unfamiliar, Armageddon takes place on Mars five years after the events in Guerrilla. Unfortunately, the destruction of the Terraformer that kept Mars nice and sunny left its surface uninhabitable, forcing the colonists to burrow deep underground, kind of like Zerglings trying to escape a Siege Tank’s fire. Yeah, I just went full-on nerd there. Anyway, the colonists end up digging too deep unleashing an ancient race of scary bug aliens that look like the long lost cousins of the Reapers in Resident Evil 5 and all hell breaks loose. Fortunately, you play as Darius Mason, grandson of Alec (the main dude from the last game) and he’s totally equipped to kick tons of alien ass. Outside of the single player story, which looks just as fantastic as Guerilla’s was, Armageddon also boasts a strong multiplayer offering. If you’re a fan of blowing shit up or fighting hordes of scary, pissed-off bugs, Armageddon isn’t likely to disappoint.
As for the demo, sorry PC gamers, it’s going to be exclusive to the Xbox 360 and PS3.
