Red Faction: Battlegrounds is an introduction to the game Red Faction: Armageddon. The production offers a completely different approach to the brand created by Volition studio, as it is a multi-person shooter with a camera showing the action from above.
In Battlegrounds the players control tuned vehicles that fight against each other in the Martian arenas. The creators prepared several standard online and local gameplay modes, i.e. Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag and King of the Hill, as well as a solo campaign consisting of battles with artificial intelligence. In total we get 10 battlefields and eight unique vehicles (cars, mosses, tanks, etc.).
The action was shown from above, so the whole is associated with arcade shooters. As far as control is concerned, production resembles such titles as Geometers Wars - with the left-hand analogy we drive the vehicle, and with the right-hand fire. During the game we often use the characteristic weapon, which appears in the game Red Faction: Armageddon and the series created on the basis of the universe. We have at our disposal, among others, rocket launchers, Gauss guns, bombs or explosives.
Red Faction: Battlegrounds is associated with Red Faction: Armageddon, the fourth installment of the main series. This means that players struggling in battles with vehicles can transfer their achievements to the latter production. Several interesting add-ons can be unlocked for gained experience points and rank.
