Red Faction Guerrilla ReMarstered Edition released on Steam and GOG, free for previous owners of regular version

Red Faction Guerrilla ReMarstered Edition

THQ Nordic has done it again. The company is giving away the Red Faction Guerrilla ReMarstered Edition for free, for previous owners of the regular version. If you don’t have the game, you can still get it for a 50% discount on GOG or on Steam.

This isn’t a real surprise, because the company did announce about the game earlier this year, including the news about the free copy for existing owners.

So, what does the ReMarstered Edition bring to the table? It does not change any aspect of the gameplay. Like most remastered games, it is all about the visuals. The graphics have been completely reworked with new textures, specular maps, shadow rendering, lighting, shaders, postprocessing. The game now features 4K resolution support on PCs. Thought not mentioned, users are reporting better audio too.

That being said, the game isn’t exactly bug free. Several reviews on Steam say that the game crashes, and quite frequently too.

If you had Red Faction Guerrilla Steam Edition in your library, you can open the Steam client, and the Red Faction Guerrilla ReMarstered Edition will already be in your library. The new version is about 25GB to download.
