Red Faction II - THQ Nordic
Time to wreak havoc on Mars with your sledgehammer once more

Vienna/Austria, July 3rd, 2018: In 2125 there is no mining your own business on Mars: The Earth Defense Force (EDF) is strong-arming everyone into work and sending the resulting hard-earned resources back to Earth. Suppression, executions, violence everywhere… it’s no wonder a famous resistance group rises once more. And you? You will be their best guerrilla fighter. Welcome to the Red Faction.

Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered Edition is out now on Steam:

One more random fun fact about Mars (in real-life): If you weighed 200 lbs on Earth, your Mars-weight would only be 76 lbs. But don't try the "Mars-Diet" at home – we recommend neither eating only Mars bars, nor trying to lower the gravity in your neighbourhood.

Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered features:
  • Fully reworked graphics – heavily reworked textures and graphic features adding, for example, specular maps
  • Improved shadow rendering
  • Improved lighting
  • Reworked shaders and postprocessing
  • Native 4k support on PC

Enjoy!

THQ has pulled the plug on its Red Faction franchise following poor sales of RF: Armageddon.


Speaking at an investor call today, CEO Brian Farrell confirmed that "we do not intend to carry forward with that franchise in any meaningful way."


He added that the development team at Volition has been moved onto Guillermo del Toro's inSane survival horror project.


The series began back in 2001 as an FPS on PC and PlayStation 2, with a formal sequel following on a year later. Red Faction: Guerrilla switched to a third person perspective in 2009, picking up a sturdy 7/10 from Eurogamer.


Red Faction: Armageddon, released last month, matched that score but, as revealed earlier today, failed to do the business at retail.
