Red Faction: Guerrilla official artwork for the remastered edition

While the series eventually met its end at the hands of the completely mediocre Red Faction: Armageddon, the previously released Red Faction: Guerrilla was a pretty darn enjoyable game given that it allowed you to demolish just about everything in your sights. As such, you might be interested to hear that THQ Nordic has now announced that they are working on a remaster, or rather the 'Re-Mars-tered' Edition.

You can expect to see fully reworked graphics with greatly upgraded textures, as well as various graphical additions like specular maps (it defines the shininess of a surface). The remaster will also feature improved shadow rendering and lighting, a rework of how the shader and postprocessing work, as well as support for all sorts of modern resolutions (including 4K).

That's pretty much it as far as any concrete details are concerned. The only other thing I can actually tell you is that the Red Faction: Guerrilla remaster will be coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the second quarter of 2018, though no actual release date has been given just yet.

Once more information turns up I'll make sure to cover it, but until then I'll leave you with a couple of screenshots from the remaster. Make sure to click on them for the bigger version!
