Red Faction Guerrilla Remaster Coming to PS4 and Xbox One

It looks like THQ Nordic are reviving another THQ franchise for PS4 as Gamestop listings appear for Red Faction: Guerrilla on PS4 and Xbox One.

The story is too old to be commented.

Oh my god ! That game was my favorite and it’s also show the destruction environment before Crackdown 3 was a thing.

spicelicka182d ago

This game had amazing destruction and it was a great game, but this has nothing to do with Crackdown 3. No one claimed Crackdown 3 invented destruction, ever heard of Battlefield? Plenty of other games have it. What Crackdown 3 is supposedly innovating in (at least in their tech demos) is open world destruction down to minute details calculated by the cloud...also with multiplayer.

UCForce182d ago (Edited 182d ago )

Yes, I know that. But Red Faction Guerrilla is also Open World game with destruction environment.

Neonridr182d ago

it's easy for people just to throw anything negative and aim it at MS for some reason. Even if it has zero context here.

UCForce182d ago

@Neonridr But MS said themselves that they are the one who created these thing first. And I find that MS is getting way too cocky.

UltraNova182d ago (Edited 182d ago )

Great news! This game had the most satisfying destruction mechanics I have ever experienced. I hope they upgrade it even further with the remaster!

Well, destruction has always been one of the main features of the red faction series, even back in 2001 with the 1st game.

Venox2008182d ago

I think first Red faction (and second) had a good destruction

Eidolon182d ago

Man I had lots of fun back in the day, tunneling to an objective. XD

SlapHappyJesus181d ago

And mercenaries before that.
I really don't see your point.

"@Neonridr But MS said themselves that they are the one who created these thing first. And I find that MS is getting way too cocky."

No they didn't. Do you ever stop lying? When did MS say they were the first to create destruction?

And teh scale in which Crackdown is doing destruction vs Red Faction- dont compare. Its embarrassing.

I'll bookmark this thread though so you and your alts can have a read when crackdown is out and you're served crow

spicelicka178d ago (Edited 178d ago )

I think you are confusing in-engine destruction vs. cloud destruction. What MS claims Crackdown 3 is doing is not the same as this game. You are just looking at things crumbling and assuming it's the same thing. Cloud computation is actually innovative if true. It means you can have multiple instances of very detailed destruction in different areas of an open map, without multiplayer players interacting with it (unlike Red faction which is single player only).

"MS said themselves that they are the one who created these thing first"
They did not say they created destructible environments. You don't seem to know what you are talking about. What Red faction achieved is incredible but the difference with Crackdown 3 is only that there is a lot MORE destruction in a seamless multiplayer environment. We don't know if the actual game will succeed in doing this but I'm explaining their claims.

YES! Will it have the multiplayer? me and my friends used to play FFA on quarantine all the time. So much fun.

cha0sknightmare182d ago

Really enjoyed this game, hope it has a modest price point.

"Red Faction Guerrilla Remaster", meh

How about a remake for a changed with better graphics and physics.

Omnisonne182d ago

Yeah, a remake that makes use of the improved hardware would be alot better. The game was fun, but iduno if i'll buy it again if it's just a slight graphical upgrade.

Pancit_Canton182d ago

I agree. This looks more like a quick cash grab to me. Most of the re-mastered games that came out recently anyways.

RememberThe357182d ago

Remember this gen has worse CPUs than last gen. Better physics might not be possible.

Eidolon182d ago

PS4 CPU is comparable considering the amount of optimization that was needed for the Cell, and 360 CPU handled it just fine, so you're saying the 360 CPU is still better than the APU CPU in the PS4? Also, GPU computes physics..

Rarefaction182d ago

I think Physics done on the gpu these days. It's a technique mark cerny discussed when ps4 was announced. Ubisoft did a huge presentation about it.

RememberThe357182d ago

@Rare: I was wondering about that after my comment actually. But if the GPU is expected to pump out higher graphic fidelity how much room will be left for physics?

@Eidolon: If the PS3 and 360 CPUs are roughly equivalent to the PS4 Xbone CPUs how the hell is it going to pump out better physics and better graphics at the same time? The GPUs in the current gen consoles aren't beasts by any measure. There's a reason we haven't seen better physics and AI in current gen consoles as opposed to last gen; CPUs. APUs extra efficiency isn't enough to make up for the lack of power.

Eidolon182d ago

But the GPUs can now handle general processing, while in the gen7 consoles couldn't. I'm pretty sure PS4/XB1 can handle a remake with much better physics, the CPUs ARE better and and easier to optimize, but the Cell if fully optimized might actually do some pretty good physics, but that level of optimization never happen for physics(used for graphics or extra power mostly ignored), and GPGPU already blows it out of the water.

RememberThe357182d ago

@Eidolon: I get the GPUs can process physics but if the PS4 GPU is being used for improved graphics and resolution, than it won't have a lot of room for physics. And if the CPU in the PS4 is roughly the same as the PS3 CPU where is the extra computing coming from?

Eidolon181d ago

Bro, the PS4 would only need to use 1/10 of it's optimized GPU FLOPS to handle the max a fully optmized PS3 Cell broadband engine could handle. The Jaguar CPU, however, is a bit weaker as far as FLOPs, but it is leagues better for general processing, including AI, especially since devs hardly took advantage of the the SPEs to it's full potential.

A new game would be better

thexmanone181d ago (Edited 181d ago )

Then buy a new game . I think a lot of people are looking forward to this.

stefan_771181d ago

@thexmanone

There hasn't been a Red Faction game since 2011. They have had 7 years to make a new one

SlapHappyJesus181d ago

Essentially all they are doing is upping the res and implementing the PC's ultra settings ...
$40 for our 9 year old game, please.
