Red Faction 3 Announced

The third title in the Red Faction franchise will arrive during THQ's next fiscal year, the publisher confirmed in a financial conference call yesterday. The company's 2009 fiscal year runs from April 1, 2008 to March 31, 2009. According to THQ CEO Brian Farrel, Red Faction 3 is being developed for the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 at the THQ-owned Volition Studios. Released in 2001, the original Red Faction was a sci-fi first-person shooter that focused on environmental destruction. The sequel, which debuted in 2002, continued the tradition of geometry deformation, allowing players to tunnel through floors and walls. It appears the third game in the series will carry that torch, with Farrel claiming it will feature "more exciting destruction technology," reports GameSpot. An official unveiling of Red Faction 3 and more details are expected in the coming weeks.Source: Shacknews

I'd hafta agree with ya on that one. RF1/2 is a a heck of a lot more popular in my house then Halo1/2/3 ever was. Can't wait to preorder RF3.

"exciting destruction technology"
aka EDT. Heck, more EDT is always good.


I only played the original and I thought it was pretty good. My installation CDs got pretty scratched up and I had to dump em, and it's pretty rare to find a copy anywhere, eBay included.

Finally..

US Faction fans have been waiting what seems like forever for this title. I spent literally hours with friends tunneling in RF1, and RF2 had a great SP story.

omg ya do you remember that map in rf1 where there were two opposing like 4 story building things and there was just like a straight connector between the two with a few rocks or something to provide a little cover, that was my favorite map you could tunnel to the other side and surprise the opposing team, or make a really big hole right in front of your base so they would just fall in and be easy pickings? i know my description is bad but you might know what im talking about
