Red Faction Guerrilla was originally released in 2009 by THQ Nordic and is the third game in the Red Faction series. It featured open-world guerrilla warfare with an emphasis on destructible environments such as buildings, cover, and other structures. The game also featured both online and offline multiplayer, each with their own set of game modes.
Set in the year 2125 on a terraformed Mars, players take on the role of Alec Mason, a mining engineer turned freedom fighter, in a battle to liberate martians from the oppressive Earth Defence Force (EDF). Players get to fight alongside other members of the reformed Red Faction in several missions to ultimately drive out the EDF from Mars.
