On June 7, Red Faction: Armageddon is set to explode onto the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC in North America. Red Faction: Armageddon will ship internationally on June 10. Additionally, THQ announced today the free playable demo of Red Faction: Armageddon is scheduled to be available on both the PS3 and Xbox 360 on May 3, though if PSN isn’t back up by then it will be available as soon as it is. The game was previously scheduled to release May 31.
In the demo, you will be introduced to Darius Mason and fight your way through the Martian sewers and an oncoming alien infestation. Meanwhile, Darius must clear his name as the colonists have blamed him for unleashing the alien threat that has ravaged the underground cities of Mars. Players will have at their disposal the Nano Forge as they combat alien invaders with concussive blasts and core-shattering tremblers. Rebuild all that you destroy with the Nano Forge’s incredible Reconstruction ability. Finally, throw entire buildings at your enemies with Red Faction’s signature weapon, the Magnet Gun.
