Game release: “Red Faction Guerrilla: Re-Mars-tered” (PC,PS4,Xbox One)

KAIKO and THQ Nordic bring back another franchise with third-person sci-fi shooter Red Faction Guerrilla: Re-Mars-tered.

The developer and publisher were already responsible for a few other reworked titles, e.g. Darksiders: Warmastered Edition and Darksiders II – Deathinitive Edition, and just like these, the strange play on words isn’t the only thing they have in common.

The original game developed by Volition was released in 2009 on PC, Xbox 360, and PS3, and was the third installment of the Red Faction series that is synonymous with destructible environments, only in this case it’s entire buildings one can level down. Playing as Alec Mason who helps the uprising of the Red Faction on Mars to overthrow the Earth Defense Force (EDF), there’s certainly enough to destroy and to shoot at. Being an open world game, one can decide where to go and what missions to take as well. It might not have the greatest story or characters on Earth (or Mars), but the game should still offer enough shooting fun, as can be seen in the trailers below that don’t take the gameplay too seriously. As is to be expected, the Re-Mars-tered edition is full of graphical tweaks, including reworked textures, improved shadow rendering and lighting as well as shader and better postprocessing. With native 4k support, this looks glorious, to say the least.

The game is out now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One in both digital and retail form, including the soundtrack, too. There’s also a 50% launch discount that will last until July 10, 5pm UTC. Good news for those who’ve purchased the 2009 Steam Edition: they’ll receive this as a free update!
