Red Faction: Battlegrounds dropping April 5, free for PS Plus subscribers

According to an e-mail reportedly being passed around by Sony to PlayStation Plus subscribers, THQ’s Red Faction: Battlegrounds will see release on April 5.

The top-down vehicular mayhem title will sell for $10, and will be free for PlayStation Plus subscribers, as a means to incentivize becoming a member.

No official word on when the game will see release on the Xbox Live Arcade, but historically games release on the XBLA and PSN during the same week and often for the same price.
