If you’ve already played previous Red Faction titles, then you’ll know that the games are all about destructible environments. As Mike Jackson over at computerandvideogames.com notes, Red Faction: Armageddon looks to take that concept to brand new levels.

Being built on the Geo-Mod 2.0 destruction engine, the RFA game enables players to take advantage of total environment destruction. Players will be able to collapse Martian structures onto their enemies, as well as rebuild whatever they destroy with the Nano-Forge’s repair ability.

The game will be available for the PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Are you looking forward to playing the Red Faction: Armageddon game?
