Red Faction: Battlegrounds – THQ Confirms PSN / XBLA Release Date

By Updated on

Back in August last year THQ revealed its latest installment in the Red Faction video game series, Red Faction: Battlegrounds. However, all we knew at that stage was the fact that the top-down twin-stick shooter game would be arriving on the PSN and XBLA sometime in 2011.

We now have a bit of good news for those that are waiting for the game to arrive, as the publisher has now confirmed a PSN / XBLA release date for the much-awaited game. According to Wesley Yin-Poole over at eurogamer.net, the new Red Faction title will launch in the first week of April.

As Wesley notes, that probably means that European gamers will most likely see the Red Faction spin-off arrive on Xbox Live Arcade on 5th April and PlayStation Network on 6th April. The title is said to offer gamers four-player vehicular co-op, which focuses on quick-fire destruction.

The Red Faction: Battlegrounds game – which was created by UK-based developer THQ Warrington – includes vehicles such as fast, all-terrain cars and the slow yet powerful tank. Are you looking forward to downloading the Red Faction: Battlegrounds title?
