Back to the Red Planet in the Same Story with a Different Console PlayStation 2’s 2001 shooter is back to lift our nostalgia levels and break ground. The original Red Faction is now available for PlayStation 4 home console. Hence, you can relive the early days of shooting mars oppressors, and experience the undertones of a rebel saga at its origins, fifteen years later. Red Faction represents the latest port from THQ Nordic, who were recently busy with Darksiders: Warmastered and Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition: previous generation titles that opened to critical acclaim. By re-releasing previous titles on current gen consoles, they’ve kept their great names alive, lest they be forgotten in the sea of new releases. Additionally, they’ve allowed current generation players their own chance to play titles many of us remember fondly, a fact THQ Nordic Business and Product Development Director Reinhard Pollice expressed excitement for: “Playing Red Faction for the first time is one of my favorite memories on ‘PlayStation 2’,” he said in a press release. “The team at THQ Nordic is thrilled to be able to share that experience with a whole new generation of players on ‘PlayStation 4’.” Sure, he’s not the only one excited.

Red Faction Coming to PS4? Red Faction 2’s short campaign and lack of online multiplayer were criticized by many; however, the game featured dual wielding, great split-screen multiplayer, and pretty good graphics at the time. IGN gave the game a 90+ review score back in the day, so the news the game may be coming to the PS4 is pretty exciting. Today, the European rating agency PEGI rated the 2003 PS2 classic Red Faction 2 for PS4 which suggests it is coming and soon. This latest rating comes hot off the heels of the rating for first game in the series, Red Faction, which was rated earlier this month. This now leads us to think that THQ Nordic, the owner of the IP, is planning to re-release the series (or at least part of it) on the PS4 via the PlayStation’s PS2 Classics program. According to the rating, the game is set to release tomorrow, which would line-up with the usual Tuesday release of PS2 classics. However, whether this will be the case or not is anyone’s best guess. What is evident is that the Red Faction series is making its way over to the PS4, likely in the near…
Just last week, THQ Nordic announced that the PlayStation 2 classic, Red Faction, was removed from Germany’s list of media harmful to young persons thirteen years after the game was added to it. The company seemed very excited to announce the news, mentioning in a statement that the decision will have an impact on the future and that THQ Nordic is currently holding “further discussions” with relevant authorities. It looks like we now know what some of those discussions might be about. If a new listing by European rating board PEGI is anything to go by, Red Faction will be coming to the PS4. The game received an age rating of 16 for “realistic looking violence.” “We will, of course, still be nurturing our extensive games portfolio that now comprises over 350 titles, and will do our utmost to ensure that gamers can play our games in future,” said THQ Nordic’s Publishing Director Jans Binsmaier last week. We’ll update our readers when there’s an official announcement. [Source: PEGI via NeoGAF] READ FULL STORY AT PLAYSTATIONLIFESTYLE!
Today the European rating agency PEGI rated the 2001 PS2 classic Red Faction, which started the series with the same name, for PS4. This is probably an indication that the game will be released on PS4 some time soon, under the THQ Nordic label. Red Faction isn’t the first game previously published by THQ to be rated for PS4. The Destroy All Humans! series also went trough the same route, and it appears that THQ Nordic is digging deep into the recently acquired portfolio to find classics that can be re-releases for Sony’s console.
THQ Nordic has announced via a press release that its 2001 title, Red Faction, has been removed from Germany’s “list of media harmful to young persons” thirteen years after the game was added to it. “Numerous discussions, tact and some skillful powers of persuasion were required to achieve this result,” wrote the publisher who believes that this decision will have quite an impact in the future. “We will, of course, still be nurturing our extensive games portfolio that now comprises over 350 titles, and will do our utmost to ensure that gamers can play our games in future,” said THQ Nordic’s Publishing Director Jans Binsmaier. “We were aware of the implications of this momentous decision, and needed to adopt a bold approach.” The publisher’s Vienna arm now plans to hold “further discussions” with The Federal Department for Media Harmful to Young Persons (BPjM). However, the nature of discussions have not yet been disclosed. READ FULL STORY AT PLAYSTATIONLIFESTYLE!
