Red Faction: Guerrilla getting three DLC packs

Demons of the Badlands to introduce new environment, single-player mission arc August 13 for $10; two remaining updates expected by year's end.


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.

They weren't kidding about that whole "red planet" nickname.

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.
