This was a minor surprise, while it was widely known this game was coming a while ago it’s pecuilar that it’s announced on a Saturday and so close to E3. but anyway on to business.
Set a full 50 years after the events of Red Faction: Guerilla you’ll be playing as Alec Mason’s grandson! Chaos must run in the blood.
For those 50 years Mars has enjoyed relative harmony after the events of RF:G, however as you may expect things don’t remain that way when a massive Terraformer that supplies Mars with it’s earth like atmosphere is destroyed turning Mars atmosphere in a deady mix of super storms, tornado’s and lighting storms forcing the colonists to flee underground where they construct underground settlements.
Fast forward another 5 years to Darius Mason where he’s running a rather profitable business in Bastion, the massive underground hub where he deals in dangerous (read: stupid) missions, if it’s suicidal or just downright dumb Darius is your man.
However Darius gets tricked into opening up an ancient mineshaft that promptly unleashes an ancient evil. cliche.
This said evil then brings down Armegeddon upon Mars and it’s up to Darius and the Red Faction to save the day.
