THQ's Red Faction is to be part of the PlayStation 2 Platinum collection, after selling nearly 190,000 units in the UK alone.


The range launches on March 1st, with some of the best selling PS2 titles available at a bargain 19.99, and will see Red Faction as one of the titles that launches the collection.

Ian Curran, THQ's Managing Director commented "We are very proud of Red Faction’s exceptional achievements, particularly given the half-million PS2 installed base when the game was launched. With well over two million PS2’s out there in the UK now, the inclusion of this key title into the Platinum range will introduce many more gamers to this incredibly innovative title".

THQ are also working on the follow up, provisionally called Red Faction 2, which is due for release later this year, and will see a number of new features including multiple mission objectives, and the ability to use different vehicles.
