THQ Reveals Downloadable Red Faction Game

THQ used a developer session on expansion into digital marketing to announce Red Faction: Battlegrounds, which will release for Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network in November or December. The game will feature vehicle-based combat from a top-down perspective, allowing for up to four player simultaneous play. Notable is that the game will feature achievements that unlock items in the upcoming Red Faction: Armageddon.

Battlegrounds is being seen as a companion game to Armageddon, much like how Dark Void Zero and Bionic Commando: Rearmed were seen as companions to Dark Void and Bionic Commando, respectively. If history repeats itself, that doesn't bode well for Armageddon.
