RF Armageddon: demo out May 3

RF Armageddon: demo out May 3

THQ's announced that a playable demo of Red Faction: Armageddon will be available on Xbox Live and PSN on May 3. The game is still set for release in North America on May 31, and on June 3 worldwide, for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.


For the first time players will assume the role of Darius Mason and fight their way through 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.

To our PC players, unfortunately, we will not be providing a demo for that platform.

No PC demo, eh? Will buy when it's 5 bucks on steam.
Commented on 2011-04-27 02:12:02
Why this goes from a potential buy to will buy when its $5 on steam?

because of no demo?

Im seriously curious, something more like I wait for impressions and reviews, but to just "no demo = when its $5 on steam"

Because impressions and reviews aren't always accurate, especially with PC versions.

If we don't have a legal option to try before we buy, then why risk it?

This should help me with my decision

As said before: again no PC demo. Is it that hard or expensive to release a pc demo?

What a terrible screenshot.

game doesn't look as fun as the first...guess I will pick it up for a low price or during a steam sale

Bah PC needs the demo more than consoles. I hope this isn't sign of shitty PC port.

About the game


What's up?

    Melmoth @AndreasZ94: for consoles 3d gaming (with a few exceptions) started with the 32bit era. for people playing on computers they's been a steady stream of 3d games from back to the early 80's (4 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Yea.. NPCs in single player games should send you hate mail, like real people ;) (4 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: I feel like its the enemy reactions to getting shot that's the real problem, they recover so fast and act like they never got shot (6 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: I've only played a bit of U4, but from what I did, it wasn't a big step up from 3. (6 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Ellie helping you out in melee situations was fun too. It's their only game where they made some good gameplay design elements when it came to enemies. (6 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: Are u talking about U4 because i feel like the gunplay was pretty good, same for U2 (6 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @AndreasZ94: Certainly their best game of combining both, hence why I think its their best. They got the pacing right, but it also had a extra element in horror. (6 Hours ago)
