This transmitter SyFi rotates from science fiction, to appear in March 2011 and will slightly reduce the waiting time on this game. If this movie is a success, a series around the themes to be built. The lead is already taken to Robert Patrick, who played the T-1000 Terminator 2.

The story of the game is 50 years after the liberation of Mars by Alec Mason and attaches to the history of its predecessor. The surface of the planet is now a unbewohnbare wasteland.

A huge Terraformer which was important for the preservation of Earth-like climate, was destroyed.

The world has become smaller than precedents. This will allows a better graphics but destructible environment occur more in the foreground. Another will be the gaming community was not satisfied with the very open world of the predecessor and the story slightly less failed. The new part is the storyline again to the forefront, inter alia by rendering and in game videos.

The completely free destructible environment was always a central element of Red faction. Also this time comes the GEO mod engine 2.0 to use.

To change the way with the help of nanotechnology environmental or repair, but this should still not very easy work at the current stage of development. Also many fantastic weapons is to destroy the opponent and the environment. A Siedge brings hammer walls to collapse that buries wiederumdie enemies among themselves.
