Red Faction: Battlegrounds Release Date Announced

By Ashley Woodcock, 5 years ago
Volition studio manager Eric Barker has confirmed to Eurogamer today that their upcoming XBLA title, Red Faction: Battlegrounds, will be released on April 5th, 2011.

The 'top-down twin-stick shooter' Arcade title was announced in August last year and will feature four player co-op with players taking control of vehicles which will be similar to those from http://www.trueachievements.com/Red-Faction-Guerrilla-x....htm and upcoming retail title Red Faction: Armageddon.

Aiming to keep Red Faction fans satisfied until Armageddon's release, the game's designer, Drew Holmes, spoke with Eurogamer today at a preview event:

It's a great little bite-sized thing to keep people engaged in the universe and still have a lot of fun. It's about leading up and building awareness, to say, hey guys, we're coming out with this awesome game and here's something cool to tide you over until now.
Here are a few screens for the upcoming title, just in case you haven't seen them before:
