Red Faction: Armageddon video game to be released May 31st

Video game company THQ announced recently that Red Faction: Armageddon, the fourth installment in its popular science fiction, action-shooter, destruction-based series set on Mars, will be released May 31st for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Red Faction: Armageddon is set in the late 22nd century, about 100 years after events in the original Red Faction game, and infuses an element of horror as the physics-based combat moves to the lava tubes and ice caves beneath the Martian surface, where hero Darius Mason discovers that humans are not alone on the Red Planet!

Fans will be able to play Red Faction: Armageddon at the Penny Arcade Expo (PAX East 2011) in Boston, March 11 to March 13, 2011. 

Red Faction: Armageddon will be accompanied by a comic book, a downloadable arcade-style game (Red Faction: Battlegrounds), and a two-hour, action-drama SyFy channel movie (Red Faction: Origins) that could possibly serve as the pilot for a full-blown Red Faction television series.
