Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

Red Faction: Guerrilla (PS3/X360)

Powered by the Geo-Mod 2.0 destruction engine, Red Faction: Guerrilla is a 3rd person, open-world shooter, featuring realistic, physics-based destruction, a story-driven single-player campaign and a massive suite of innovative multiplayer options.

Red Faction: Guerrilla is a 3rd person, open-world shooter set on Mars, 50 years after the events of the original Red Faction®. Players take on the role of freedom fighter Alec Mason, with the newly re-established Red Faction movement, as they battle for liberation from the oppressive Earth Defense Force (EDF). Throughout their fight for freedom, players can carve their own path, wreaking havoc across the vast, open-world environment of Mars, from the desolate mining outpost of Parker to the gleaming EDF capital city of Eos. Utilizing improvised weapons, explosives and re-purposed mining equipment and vehicles, Red Faction: Guerrilla allows players to tear through fully destructible environments in a Martian landscape swarming with EDF forces, Red Faction resistance fighters, and the downtrodden settlers caught in the cross-fire. Red Faction: Guerrilla features a robust multiplayer experience, including several modes focused on destruction-based game-play.

Red Faction: Guerrilla combines true physics-based destruction with open-world game-play to give players an experience like nothing they’ve played before,” said Kevin Kraff, vice president of worldwide marketing, THQ. “Volition has delivered an extremely innovative product that takes the open-world genre in a new direction and we’ve seen that reflected in the strong review scores worldwide.”

Red Faction: Guerrilla was developed using Volition’s proprietary Geo-Mod 2.0 physics engine, resulting in the most realistic and dynamic destruction ever seen in a video game,” said Mike Kulas, vice president, product development and general manager, Volition, Inc. “The destruction system results in endless game-play possibilities across both the single-player campaign and extensive multiplayer modes.”

Developed by THQ internal studio Volition, Inc., Red Faction: Guerrilla is now available for the suggested retail price of $59.99.
