Red Faction: Armageddon – THQ Confirms Demo on Way

By Updated on

We have some rather exciting news now for those of you that are waiting for the Red Faction: Armageddon game to arrive, as THQ has just confirmed that a demo is on the way. However, it appears that the upcoming demo will only be available to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 owners.

According to Pete Haas over on the cinemablend.com website, the demo – which is due to arrive on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network (if it’s up and running by then) on May 3rd – puts players in the shoes of the game’s main character Darius Mason, as he fights his way through the Martian sewers.

The Red Faction: Armageddon demo will enable players to test out two of the game’s most powerful weapons: the Nano Forge and the Magnet Gun. The Nano Forge not only allows players to pound enemies with concussive blasts, but it also has the ability to repair / rebuild destroyed objects.

However, trying out the Magnet Gun will most likely be the highlight of the demo for many gamers. This weapon enables players to fire at two different objects, causing the first object to collide with the second. Gamers will then be able to throw a building at an enemy or vice versa.

The Red faction: Armageddon game – which will be available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows – is due to be released on May 31st in mainland Europe and North America, June 2nd in Australia and June 3rd in the UK. Will you be downloading the demo?
