Red Faction: Armageddon 'Above And Beyond' Guerrilla, Says Volition

In an interview with Gaming Union, Volition's studio design director, Jason Scott, stated his belief that Armageddon will be able to go "above and beyond" Guerrilla. He also mentioned Bioshock as a major influence on Armageddon's "darker tone" and "more atmospheric" world. (BioShock, E3, PC, PS3, Red Faction: Armageddon, Red Faction: Guerrilla, THQ, Volition, Inc., Xbox 360)

as long as it maintains that insane destruction, I'll be happy.
ThanatosDMC  +   1486d ago
I hope they dont suddenly change again from all the destruction we saw on RF:G and make it like RF1 to RF2 transition in which nothing was destructible except a few tiles.

I hope the melee weapon is still the hammer... i love that hammer.

No. Scroll down a little someone posted some gameplay. Still fully-destructible, though the ground stills seems just as hard.
ThanatosDMC  +   1486d ago
I see. Damn, i wish i could still make tunnels like in RF1.
badz149  +   1486d ago
it should, right?
release a the next game in the franchise and then make it worst? the vast improvement over the previous is highly expected! what's left is for them to fulfill the expectation with the game, not just talks!
Hardedge  +   1486d ago
Yeah the destruction was the best part of Guerilla
Kyll  +   1486d ago
when does this come out?
JDouglasGU  +   1486d ago
march 2011 is their target
ShapelyChops  +   1486d ago
Well, I'm glad they intend to improve on what they've already done! haha
Coramoor_  +   1486d ago
more chaos and destruction is all you could want
JDouglasGU  +   1486d ago
that and it's good to hear they are putting more effort into the story, Guerrilla's was lacking in that department
The Great Melon  +   1486d ago
Lol, I read the the title and synopsis thinking they were referring to Guerrilla Games rather than Red Faction: Guerrilla. Everything makes a lot more sense now.
siyrobbo  +   1486d ago
i did the same
dinkeldinkse  +   1486d ago
Same here
Lol

Terrible Joke of the day...
Red Faction: Armageddon 'Above And Beyond' Guerrilla
But I thought this game was set underground... :P

Loving the look of the Magnet gun... So Much Chaos.
For those who don't know, the game still allows you to travel to the surface on occasions...
webeblazing  +   1486d ago
it make sense really when you look at all of the games that was shown at e3 this and kz3 was most likely the only ones with effect most of the game people said looked good gfx wise didnt even had more going then they older counter parts (rf guerrilla and kz2). most of the new game there didnt have anything going on in the gameplay videos imo.
Adexus  +   1486d ago
I like the direction they went with it, I loved Guerrilla, tons of fun to be had but one huge gripe of mine with Armageddon is the new camera, zoom the hell out!

It puts the term 'over the shoulder' to a whole new level, it should be 'so over the shoulder you can see each individual hair on the main characters head'.
LCS_Furious_Dre  +   1486d ago
Thats great news for all red faction fans. I expect nothing but the best.
djfullshred  +   1486d ago
I had fun with the open world setting of Guerrilla. All the previews I've seen of Armageddon reminds me of the original Red Faction settings. Looks cool.
Scottyabanks  +   1486d ago
where did you see previews?
djfullshred  +   1486d ago
Preview pics I should clarify. Just a few pics here & there on the Internet. I've not seen any video yet.
