More On: Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered

This summer we're getting two amazing Volition Studios-developed open world games on Nintendo Switch. First up is Saints Row The Third on May 10th, and then developer KAIKO is bringing their excellent port, Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered, on July 2nd.

It's no secret that Red Faction Guerrilla is one of my favorite games of the 7th console generation. Challenging combat, dynamic vehicles, and a geometric destruction engine that lets you turn any structure in the game into rubble. It's an incredibly fun and cathartic game that got a fresh lease on life when the cheeky Re-Mars-tered edition arrived on PC, PS4 and Xbox One last year.

The Switch version appears to be feature-complete, with optional motion controls and even the game's riotous multiplayer included. Summer 2019 will make me one very happy old-school Volition fanboy.

About Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered
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.

Features

Open World Guerrilla Warfare - You decide who, when, where and how to battle. Utilize guerrilla tactics, improvised weaponry, and modified vehicles to lead insurgent attacks on EDF targets. Launch attacks based on your own gameplay style, take on missions in any order you choose, or engage in destructive activities to weaken the EDF's grip on Mars.
Strategic Destruction - Use destruction to your tactical advantage, setting ambushes or chain reaction explosions to attack enemy strongholds and permanently modify the game environment. Leverage fully-dynamic physics-based destruction to improvise on the fly: blow holes in a wall or floor to set an ambush or escape, take out a staircase to stop your pursuers, or drive vehicles through blown out walls.
Evolving & Emergent Gameplay - Carve your path through an ever changing landscape as you improvise your combat tactics - mixing gameplay styles, vehicles, weapons and explosives to defeat the EDF.
Epic Sci-Fi Setting - Explore the huge, unforgiving Martian landscape, from the desolate mining outpost of Parker to the gleaming EDF capital city of Eos; then tear through the fully destructible open-world environments swarming with EDF forces, Red Faction resistance fighters, and the downtrodden settlers caught in the cross-fire.
Multiplayer Combat - There is no place to hide when you put your guerrilla warfare skills to the test in a variety of highly destructive multiplayer combat modes.
