No kidding: Red Faction: Battlegrounds will get add-ons



5:40 PM on 08.19.2010

Since it was first revealed that there would be some sort of lead-in game for PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade prior to the launch of Red Faction: Armageddon, I always envisioned it as playing like "Red Faction Lite" -- y'know, same core experience, but not quite as "finished."

We now know that's absolutely not the case. Red Faction: Battlegrounds is its own thing: vehicular combat presented in a top-down view. I'm simultaneously happy it's something different and sad that I don't much care for car combat games.

According to THQ, two add-ons are planned for Battlegrounds. The first throws new vehicles into the mix, naturally, and the second will be related to the SyFy Red Faction movie. More than that, project manager Steve Powel says "other platforms are being discussed." PC version, anyone?
