While PC gamers patiently await Red Faction: Guerrilla's belated "summer" release, their console-owning counterparts may be enjoying a second helping of open-world destruction for the recently released Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions of the game. THQ today announced a trio of downloadable content packs for Guerrilla, with the first set to launch on August 13.
The debut pack, Demons of the Badlands, will feature a new single-player story arc that takes place in a new environment not covered by the original game's open world. A handful of screenshots suggest the first DLC add-on will heavily feature the game's Marauder faction.
Demons of the Badlands will sell for $9.99 on the PlayStation Network and 800 Microsoft points on Xbox Live. No date or price was specified for a PC release of the add-on. The two remaining packs are expected to arrive later this year, with THQ giving no indication as to their content or cost.
Red Faction: Guerrilla is set on a terraformed and colonized Mars that saw an uprising of miners in the first two games. The third entry in the series depicts the struggle between descendants of a Martian mining colony and the totalitarian Earth Defense Force looming over them. In addition to physics-based destruction, Red Faction: Guerrilla allows players to kill one another with a very large bird.
