Fans of the Red Faction series will once again be able to experience the highly destructible environments of Mars soon. THQ Nordic announced today that the Volition-developed popular third-person shooter from 2009, Red Faction: Guerrilla, is getting a fresh coat of red paint as part of a remaster, which is set to arrive later this year.
Arriving with the inventive title, Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered, the new version will bring a host of new features centered around improving the original's graphics. At least on the PC, these enhancements include native 4K support, new textures, as well as graphics improvements for shadows, lighting, and shaders, with more to be announced at a later date.
The exact new improvements console players will be receiving have not been revealed just yet, but THQ Nordic did say that Xbox One X support is planned.
For those unfamiliar with the title, here's the description of the game provided by the publisher:
Set 50 years after the climactic events of the original Red Faction, Red Faction: Guerrilla allows players to take the role of an insurgent fighter with the newly re-established Red Faction movement as they battle for liberation from the oppressive Earth Defense Force. Red Faction: Guerrilla still defines the limits of destruction-based game-play with a huge open-world, fast-paced guerrilla-style combat, and true physics-based destruction.
Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered edition does not have an exact release date yet, but it is planned for launch sometime in the second quarter of 2018 for the Xbox One family of consoles, PC, and PlayStation 4.
