In advance of the June 7, 2011 release of Red Faction: Armageddon, THQ announced today that a demo of the game will be available May, 3, 2011 for Xbox 360. (And if PSN is back up and running, then the demo will be available on Playstation 3 at the same time.)
From the press release:
In the demo, consumers will be introduced to Darius Mason and fight their way through the Martian sewers and an oncoming alien infestation. Meanwhile, Darius must clear his name as the colonists have blamed him for unleashing the alien threat that has ravaged the underground cities of Mars.
Players will have at their disposal the Nano Forge as they combat alien invaders with concussive blasts and core-shattering tremblers. Rebuild all that you destroy with the Nano Forge’s incredible Reconstruction ability. Finally, throw entire buildings at your enemies with Red Faction’s signature weapon, the Magnet Gun.
