Red Faction Guerrilla Remaster Tasks Players With Destroying Mars in 4K

If only someone can blow up the terrible pun.

Real Faction Guerrilla is getting a remastered release for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. That includes 4K support for the applicable platforms. THQ Nordic proudly calls the release Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered.

While the pun deserves the kind of wince you make when a pun only sort of lands, Red Faction Guerrilla absolutely deserves your attention. The original game, which came out on PlayStation 3, PC, and Xbox 360 back in 2009, supported fully destructible environments that made it a hit with the gamers that actually played it.

Everything you remember from the original game is still here like the open world guerrilla warfare where the player takes the role of a revolutionary terrorist on Mars. Features of the...sigh... "Re-Mars-ter" includes fully reworked graphics, improved shadow rendering, improved lighting, and the aforementioned 4K support.

The rights to Red Faction were sold to Nordic Games after THQ filed for bankruptcy in 2012. But after Nordic Games purchased THQ, becoming THQ Nordic in the sale, Red Faction Guerrilla got a second wind.

The remastered edition is being done by Kaiko, the studio behind Darksiders Warmastered Edition. Meanwhile THQ Nordic is busy with Darksiders 3. So if you missed THQ, it sounds like they're busy working on all your favorite THQ series. Now if only someone can tell them to start working on De Blob 3.
