Fans of Red Faction: Guerrilla can now enjoy the remastered version on their Nintendo Switch consoles. The third-person shooter video game is the third installment in the Red Faction series, and Red Faction: Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered is the remastered version with improved graphics, which was released worldwide for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One last year.

Red Faction: Guerrilla is set half a century after the climactic events of the original Red Faction. Players take on the role of an insurgent fighter with the newly re-established Red Faction movement as they battle for liberation from the oppressive Earth Defense Force. The remastered game continues to defy the limits of destruction-based gameplay with a huge open-world, fast-paced guerrilla-style combat, and true physics-based destruction.

For those who have missed out on Red Faction: Guerrilla, the game features include:

  • Open World Guerrilla Warfare
    • You decide who, when, where and how to battle. Utilize guerrilla tactics, improvised weaponry, and modified vehicles to lead insurgent attacks on EDF targets. Launch attacks based on your own gameplay style, take on missions in any order you choose, or engage in destructive activities to weaken the EDF's grip on Mars.
  • Strategic Destruction
    • Use destruction to your tactical advantage, setting ambushes or chain reaction explosions to attack enemy strongholds and permanently modify the game environment. Leverage fully-dynamic physics-based destruction to improvise on the fly: blow holes in a wall or floor to set an ambush or escape, take out a staircase to stop your pursuers, or drive vehicles through blown out walls.
  • Evolving & Emergent Gameplay
    • Carve your path through an ever changing landscape as you improvise your combat tactics - mixing gameplay styles, vehicles, weapons and explosives to defeat the EDF.
  • Epic Sci-Fi Setting
    • Explore the huge, unforgiving Martian landscape, from the desolate mining outpost of Parker to the gleaming EDF capital city of Eos; then tear through the fully destructible open-world environments swarming with EDF forces, Red Faction resistance fighters, and the downtrodden settlers caught in the cross-fire.
  • Multiplayer Combat
    • There is no place to hide when you put your guerrilla warfare skills to the test in a variety of highly destructive multiplayer combat modes.

For Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered on the Nintendo Switch, platform-relevant features include:

  • Choice between Performance and Quality Mode
  • Fully reworked graphics—heavily reworked textures and graphic features adding, for example, specular maps
  • Improved shadow rendering
  • Improved lighting
  • Reworked shaders and postprocessing
  • Optional Motion Controls for a better sense of aiming while playing in handheld mode
