Red Faction: Guerrilla dated, specced for PC

Red Faction: Guerrilla dated, specced for PC

THQ's Red Faction: Guerrilla will finally see a PC release this September - in Europe first too!

THQ has formally announced the release date and minimum and recommended specs for the PC version of physics-driven destructathon Red Faction: Guerrilla - revealing that those of us in Europe will get the game before the US.

International customers (including Europe) will get the game on September 11th according to THQ, while those of you in the US will have to wait an extra few days - it won't be in stores in America until September 15th.

The reason for the short delay in America is apparently that THQ is still finalising some distribution details with partners in the US.

The recommended specs for the PC version of the games, which has you running around on Mars and blowing up lots of buildings, include a 3.2GHz processor, 2GB RAM and a 256MB graphics card. If you can't quite reach that then you can make do with the minimum requirements - a 2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM and a 128MB 3D card with Shader Model 3.0 support.

We reviewed the console version of Red Faction: Guerrilla not long ago and thought it was quite a good game and very technically impressive, even if the gameplay wasn't as innovative as the engine it ran on. Here's hoping that the PC version will feature a few more bits of visual splendour to help tip the balance in it's favour!

What did you think to Red Faction: Guerrilla? Let us know in the forums.

can't wait. i've loved Red Faction 1, and RF2 was acceptable.

looking at those loose specs, i fear the developer doesn't know how the game is going to perform. 3.2Ghz processor? how many cores? 256MB graphics card, 7600GT or 8800GT?

Even though I prefer PC FPSes I'll probably get the Xbox version. It seems like the kind of game more suited to "sofa play". And I think I'd need the achievements to entice me into repeatedly blowing stuff up.

There's been a Steam page for the past 6 months for it

You will still get them on the PC version, GFWL isn't it?

I think it's actually going to be on Steam not gfwl, just like Saints Row 2.

could the USA delay be something to do with not wanting to release a game about destroying buildings on september 11th? ;-)

Damn didn't know that! I loved RF1 but just glanced over reviews of the third one... Hmmm, not a huge fan of 3rd person.

I'm sorry, but i think RF3 is crap after playing the demo.

I didn't think it was very good either, average filler IMO.

I've heard reviewers say the same thing, only to then go on to like it. I haven't tried the demo personally, but it sounds like they just made a crap one.

Was a bit skeptical when I got the 360 version, but then it grew on me and blowing buildings up is always entertaining :D


My only gripe is you can't seem to reset buildings :(
