THQ has recently revealed some information about the upcoming Red Faction 4 and is looking to bring insane upgrades to the Red Faction franchise. In an interview with CVG, VP of Core Games, Danny Bilson confirmed that the 4th installment of Red Faction will be releasing this year and that “it’s different from the last one but similar.”
“It’s sort of a combo of the old one and the new one, so it’s… I don’t want my marketing guy to be pissed at me for giving away too much, but it goes back underground and it’s really cool.”
He also commented on Red Faction: Guerrilla which was a hit game amongst critics but never achieved very high sales.
“that that game has been played by a lot more people than the amount we sold.
“The things that I think were the problem with Guerilla were not the gamplay but the IP. Being in a dusty environment for a long period of time could get a little monotonous. It’s almost simple things like that.”
He went on to add,
“I think the story [in Red Faction 4] is way more intense this time and I think the story was way secondary to the gameplay last time. It’s more integrated this time and it’s a cooler story, it’s cooler environments and there are elements in it that have never been in a Red Faction before as far as enemies go and… ahh (laughs).”
Looks for more updates on this game in the coming months, especially with E3 right around the corner.
