Red Faction: Battlegrounds is coming to Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network in 2011.
It’s being described as a multiplayer-focused vehicular combat game with attack vehicles, heavy tanks and combat walkers. All this will obviously take place on Mars and there'll be lots of explosions, we're reckoning.
Four players can either play locally or online in game modes that include Survival, Annihilate and Flag Frenzy. Players will also be rewarded with unique bonus content that will be playable in the upcoming Red Faction: Armageddon title.
Here’s the official description:
“The signature destructive gameplay from Red Faction: Guerrilla comes to the downloadable arcade with Red Faction: Battlegrounds. Jump into your favourite tank or mech using your Gauss Cannons, Rocket Launchers and Singularity Bombs to destroy the competition, and environment along with it.
“Battle your way through treacherous Martian deserts, terraformed enclaves and more in a variety of different multiplayer modes and single player challenges. Rank up by defeating the competition and unlock new content including maps, vehicles, weapons and even items for the upcoming Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 system and PC game, Red Faction: Armageddon.”
