Colonists struggle for survival in the underground mines after the surface is rendered uninhabitable. When Darius Mason, grandson of revolution heroes Alec Mason and Samanya, unknowingly releases a long-dormant evil, Armageddon is unleashed on Mars. As settlements are torn asunder, only Darius and the Red Faction can save mankind. The battle will take them to the core of the storm-blasted planet through ice caves and lava flows until they are face to face against the unspeakable threat. Red Faction: Armageddon expands on the critically acclaimed, best-selling franchise with new, groundbreaking challenges. You are humanity's last hope for survival.

Loved the previous game simply for the destruction. Don't know about this one, reminds of dead space or every other game with the same plot...

what the hell, they have this awesome open-world engine that handles destruction like no other engine on the planet, and they make a claustrophobic space horror ala dead space. strange decision imo.

    asdfg @droezelke: If you get the chance you should try Vive in higher framerate and resolution. Could be the low res of the PSVR that mess you up. (26 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @GrimThorne: not true. I get car sick. I don't get VR sick. But it's kind of the opposite of car sickenss in terms of inner ear movement and perception of movement. (54 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I guess they felt like making it slower on account of the general lack of stuff to actually unlock. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And yea progression is pretty weird. You have to level up your class rank to unlock guns for that class with warbonds that you earn every soldier (not class) level. (1 Hour ago)

    Moonwalker Oh stupid me, that's on the top left. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker One thing is unclear to me though. How do I see my progression? Just now I was promoted and received 90 cards, not enough for a new weapon. How exactly does this work? (2 Hours ago)
