Red Faction: Battlegrounds Coming to XBLA

Do you need some Red Faction action soon? Well, you're in luck. Don Whiteford, THQ Digital creative director, has announced a tie-in title for Red Faction: Armageddon – namely, Red Faction: Battlegrounds. This comes straight out of the GDC Europe conference, where hopes are switched to high.

As previously mentioned by THQ's Danny Bilson, a tie-in title would be available "three or four months" before 2011's Armageddon. Which could mean Battlegrounds will release sometime during your upcoming November and December festivities.

According to Gamasutra, this future XBLA release is being developed by a core team of only four people. I know nothing about how to develop a game, but that sure inspires me to find out. Gamasutra also mentions that Battlegrounds is a "a topdown car, mech and rover combat title… with up to four players on the same screen. In addition, various achievements in the game — which was built by a core team of just four people — will unlock unique elements in Red Faction: Armageddon."
