Red Faction: Armageddon character biographies
Video game company THQ recently released detailed biographies of the main characters in Red Faction: Armageddon, the forthcoming fourth installment in its popular science fiction, action-shooter, destruction-based series set on a revolutionary late 22nd-century Mars:
Adam Hale’s father was an EDF captain killed by Alec Mason during the Revolution of 2125. Hale was raised by EDF survivors abandoned on Mars. In 2150, Hale’s White Faction launched a new war against the Colonists. Red Faction forces led by Alec Mason and his son Jake defeated Hale. Hale vanished after the Battle of Bakhuysen Trench. Years later, he returned as the messiah to a band of violent Marauder separatists. Hale’s Cultists claim he joins the mystical Martian past to a glorious future. Others see a madman who would destroy the planet to rule it.
Red Faction: Armageddon is scheduled to be released May 31, 2011. It 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.
