(IDG) -- With "Red Faction," Volition is hoping to start a first-person shooter revolution from the ground up -- beginning with the environments. No longer will walls be invincible blockades that let you hide from your opponents or camp out. Fortunately, you'll be able to completely manipulate the environments in "Red Faction" depending on what kind of weapon you're using: Rocket launchers will level small buildings, and armor-piercing shells will punch clean holes in walls -- leaving a perfect impromptu sniping position.

Following suit with the great console shooters, this single-player game will have a deep story requiring strategy and stealth as well as great marksmanship. You'll also have several vehicles to pilot that will change the way you battle, as well as split-screen multiplayer modes for two to four players to duke it out in deathmatches and other games. Expect glorious graphics and a myriad of new tactical options when you get gunning with "Red Faction" next year.
