New Releases: InFamous 2, Red Faction Armageddon, Green Lantern, More

This week’s E3 Expo will show the world everything about a ton of new games that’ll be available later this year and the next. But there are several games that’ll ship to stores this week and battle the big show for the gaming industry’s eyeballs.

The biggest new release is definitely Sony’s InFamous 2. The first game was a bit of a surprise hit, which has made the sequel one of 2011’s most anticipated games.

It’ll be joined by THQ’s latest trip to Mars, Red Faction: Armageddon (PC, PS3, Xbox 360); the movie-to-game adaptation Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters (3DS, DS, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360); and Codemasters’ latest FPS, Operation Flashpoint: Red River (PC, PS3, Xbox 360).

Check out the full list of the rest of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)

Check out the new trailer for Operation Flashpoint: Red River above.
