The Red Faction franchise went on a six-year hiatus between 2003 and 2009, returning with a drastic overhaul. Red Faction: Guerrilla departed from its linear first-person shooter roots, emerging as an open-world third-person action game that garnered positive reviews from the press. It wasn't long before a sequel, Red Faction: Armageddon, was announced, and with the game being released in Australia shortly, THQ has announced what additional goodies it plans to pack in for those who preorder the game.

In a win for EB Games, the specialist retailer managed to exclusively secure the Red Faction: Armageddon collector's edition for those who hold a preorder for the game. Inside of the box, you'll find a copy of the game, a download code for Red Faction: Battlegrounds, Recon and Commando downloadable content packs, and a poster.

 The previous Red Faction games were all about destruction, but now the focus is also on rebuilding.

Red Faction: Armageddon takes place 50 years after the last game; this time heading beneath the surface of Mars. The story follows Darius Mason, a contractor, who inadvertently opens up a mineshaft that's been holding an alien horde back.
