THQ announced today that Red Faction: Battlegrounds is now available on the PlayStation Network for $9.99 and on Xbox LIVE Arcade for 800 MS Points.
Information on the game from the press release below;
Red Faction: Battlegrounds is a fast-paced multiplayer-focused vehicular combat game in which fast-attack vehicles, heavy tanks and combat walkers wreak havoc above ground and beneath the surface of Mars. Staying true to the Red Faction universe, players can demolish anything that stands in their way, from military compounds to enemy vehicles, using advanced Martian artillery and explosives.
For hardcore Red Faction fans to casual racers that just want to blow stuff up, Red Faction: Battlegrounds provides a completely new way to experience the Red Faction universe,” said Danny Bilson, Executive Vice President, Core Games, THQ. “This explosive arcade game is a throwback to top-down, four-player racers of the past, yet with story tie-ins and unlockable weaponry that you will experience in our must futuristic game, Red Faction: Armageddon. Great on their own, playing either will make the other that much more enjoyable – exactly what we want from our transmedia projects.”
