Marking what is probably the last farewell in the Red Faction series, the ‘Path to War’ DLC is now available for download on Xbox LIVE. Coming in at 560MS Points, the DLC contains two new weapons and four new missions.
The Red Faction franchise will be no more. Due to poor sales over the last two versions of the game, THQ “do not intend to carry forward with that franchise in any meaningful way”. Ouch.
Despite the game’s poor sales, net sales were up year-over-year in THQ’s fiscal Q1 (which ended June 30), from $149.4 million to $195.2 million.
As is the case with many new titles nowadays, Official Magazines get to print their reviews before the masses of gaming sites publish their reviews online. The Official Xbox Magazine has published the first review for Red Faction: Armageddon. The mag has scored the Volition Inc. developed shooter at a good score of 85/100 which is now on Metacritic.
