Volition is “motivating players to destroy everything in sight”

By Brenna Hillier, Sunday, 27 March 2011 22:55 GMT

Volition’s Dan Sutton has said Red Faction: Armageddon players will be at liberty to be as destructive as they please.

“In Guerrilla there was a kind of moral issue. When you were destroying buildings, you thought, ‘Should I really be doing this?'” the production lead told CVG

“But in Armageddon we’ve completely thrown that out and we’re basically motivating players to destroy everything in sight.”

Although moral qualms may not have held back your destructive tendencies, fear of missing items or areas through careless destruction may have. Fear no more, child.

“This works especially well now that we have the repair tool. Not only can you tear everything down, you can also build it back up,” Sutton added.

“If you see a destroyed bridge, you can rebuild it and maybe reach a secret area. And if you get trapped, you can always repair the path that you destroyed.”

Red Faction: Armageddon will release on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 at the end of May.
