THQ Nordic has officially announced that Red Faction is making a comeback, and the classic game is now available for the PlayStation 4. The game is now available for PS4 via an emulation, and it’s available as a $14.99 Digital Download.
The first-person shooter is acclaimed for its special GeoMod engine. Red Faction was first released in 2001 for PlayStation 2, Windows PC and MAC OS. It was later ported to PlayStation 3 as well. The game is famous for empowering players to modify their in-game world.
Speaking on the news THQ Nordic’s Reinhard Pollice stated: “Playing Red Faction for the first time is one of my favorite memories on ‘PlayStation 2.’ The team at THQ Nordic is thrilled to be able to share that experience with a whole new generation of players on ‘PlayStation 4’. Ripping a hole through the surface of Mars to access a hidden tunnel for a surprise takedown is about as satisfying as a shooter can get!”
The game is set after a revolution has been kickstarted on Mars. Players take the forefront with a rebel organization called the Red Faction. Players have to face 20 levels with deep seas, natural caves, Ultor Corporation bases and more. Players will have to hijack five land, sea, and air vehicles, all which have their own unique weapons. The vehicles include a ATV, a submarine, and a high-flying fighter. Players have 15 different weapons at their disposal, including the railguns, rocket launchers, riot sticks, and heavy explosives. Stealth, cooperation, and action are all important to achieve success.
Red Faction is now available as a digital download release for PlayStation 4.
