The above surface atmosphere in Red Faction: Armageddon has turned into a constant barrage of lightning storms and super-tornados. Darius strides through the underground mines on Mars that he now calls his home. A loud growl comes from the far corner of the cavern. He turns and his eyes rest on the familiar glowing-red eyes and spines of the six-limbed drones, members of the long-dormant evil force that has now been unleashed across the planet. There's several of them and, with a roar, they hurriedly close in on their prey. The rapid fire of Darius' gun can barely be heard over the din, but one drone hits the floor, closely followed by a second. The situation seems under control, until a deeper, louder growl rumbles behind him. He turns, and comes face-to-face with a huge mouth, filled with razor sharp teeth. This is the tank, and it's not happy to see him either...
Only Darius and the Red Faction can save the planet once again. There will be many more moments like that described above, as the stack of screenshots released by THQ will attest:
Red Faction: Armageddon is pencilled down to be released in May 2011.
