THQ has recently revealed a new upcoming title in their Red Faction video game series, this game is Red Faction: Battlegrounds and will be a downloadable arcade game available at the PlayStation Store and the Xbox Live Marketplace.
This news was revealed by THQ Digital’s creative director Don Whiteford at the Game Developers Conference, details are scarce however there will definitely be support for up to four player local multiplayer.
A quote from Whiteford explained that the game will be set in an isometric arena and will be a combat game where you fight rovers, tanks and mechs.
THQ has now released the official Red Faction: Battlegrounds press release, this revealed that it will arrive in 2011 and there will be online co-op modes, multiplayer modes include Survival, Annihilate, and Flag Frenzy, sound like a lot of fun to me.
If you are looking to buy Red Faction: Armageddon which is released in 2011 there is a huge reason to buy Red Faction: Battlegrounds, apparently in the game you will be able to unlock items for Armageddon.
