Red Faction: Guerrilla announced, promises even more destruction than before

If you haven’t been thoroughly impressed by the destructible environments found in this generation of games so far, the mere mention of a technologically advanced, high-def Red Faction might put a menacing smile on your face.

Rumors have been flying left and right about Red Faction: Guerrilla, but it wasn’t until today that THQ officially announced the third title in the destruction-based shooter series. Unlike the previous games, however, RF: G is a third-person shooter (phew!).

Speaking about Volition’s latest project, Brad Carraway, the director of global brand management for THQ, had this to say: “With the game’s unique pairing of true physics-based destruction, fast-paced guerrilla warfare style combat, and a massive world to explore – Red Faction: Guerrilla will redefine the limits of open-world gaming.”

Now if only we had some in-game footage to back all of that up. For the time being, I’m pumped. Red Faction: Guerrilla is coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in 2009. Anybody else excited?
