    Red Faction Gets A Vehicle Combat Game

    “Speaking at GDC Europe today,THQ Digital creative director Don Whiteford has revealed Red Faction: Battlegrounds to be a downloadable title for the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade, which unlike the last (and upcoming) Red Faction games – which are all about hammers and ostriches – is about vehicular combat.”
