Red Faction: Armageddon or Doom 4?

Red Faction: Armageddon E3 2010 Trailer – Watch more Game Trailers

Hey, look, it’s an announcement trailer for a very atmospheric game about fighting monsters in dark tunnels on Mars. Download it here.

All I can say is that it’s about time Doom 4 was revealed. Oops! Wow, an announcement of another Dead Space title before Dead Space 2 is released? I guess there’s something to be said for revisiting the tunnels featured in the original Red Faction, but scary monsters? Really? Check out the synopsis provided by THQ after the jump:

Half a century after the Red Faction resistance freed Mars, the red planet again becomes a battleground. Colonists struggle for survival in the underground mines after the surface is rendered uninhabitable. When Darius Mason, grandson of revolution heroes Alec Mason and Samanya, unknowingly releases a long-dormant evil, Armageddon is unleashed on Mars.  As settlements are torn asunder, only Darius and the Red Faction can save mankind. The battle will take them to the core of the storm-blasted planet through ice caves and lava flows until they are face to face against the unspeakable threat. Red Faction: Armageddon expands on the critically acclaimed, best-selling franchise with new, groundbreaking challenges. You are humanity’s last hope for survival.

That is utterly baffling, and the title “Red Faction” loses all meaning in this context. Is anyone else as confused by this as I am?

Armageddon is set for release in March 2011 on the 360, PS3 and PC.
