The Original Red Faction Now Available on PlayStation 4

The Martian shooter that started another franchise two console generations ago, Red Faction, is now available for PlayStation 4.

Re-published by THQ Nordic, the first-person shooter enables players to battle through 20 levels of various environments, including natural caves, deep seas, Ultor Corporation’s bases, and more. The biggest feature the game was noted for was its destructible environments, like digging holes with rocket launchers.

“Playing Red Faction for the first time is one of my favorite memories on ‘PlayStation 2’,” said Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development Director at THQ Nordic.

“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!”

THQ Nordic is now the owner of the Red Faction IP – would you like to see a new game in the series moving forward? Sound off in the comments below!
