Armageddon gets demo’d in May

Come next week (May 3 to be precise) we’ll all get a taste of the end of the world as a demo for Red Faction Armageddon launches. Of course, it’s not the end of our world, and you could argue when life on Mars actually started, but we’re excited to play it all the same.

The demo will put players in the shoes of Darrius Mason as he treks through Martian sewers, armed with the Nano Forge and the Magnet Gun, which has the power to toss enemies through buildings or completely flip things around and bring buildings down on top of your foes.

It’s due to hit PSN and Xbox Live on May 3.
