In a press release issued today, THQ and Volition have announced that they will be releasing a demo for their upcoming Red Faction: Armageddon
on May 3rd.
According to the press release, the demo will allow players to step into the shoes of Darius Mason to combat the alien infestation as he fights his way through the sewers of Mars.
Within the demo, players will get access to the Nano Forge which will allow them to use concussive blasts and "core-shattering tremblers" as well as rebuild the environments which they will inevitably destroy. The demo will also give gamers the chance to use Red Faction's "signature weapon", the Magnet Gun, to throw entire buildings at enemies.
Finally, THQ and Volition released a new screenshot. Red Faction: Armageddon
is set for a May 31st release in North America and a June 3rd release in Europe.
