Giving out the details Eric Barker, Volition studio manager said, “If Armageddon is a big meal, Battlegrounds is a quick, little snack,”

“It’s fun. You’re just going to blow each other up and go crazy. It’s a blast.”

“It’s a great little bite-sized thing to keep people engaged in the universe and still have a lot of fun,” Armageddon designer Drew Holmes said. “It’s about leading up and building awareness, to say, hey guys, we’re coming out with this awesome game and here’s something cool to tide you over until now.”

Red Faction: Armageddon is slated to release in June 2011 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
