Pure Faction is a community-made patch for the PC game Red Faction 1. It adds functionality such as automatic map downloads, support for modern hardware, bug fixes, new maps, an updated level editor, server creation assistance, first person spectate, a new user-friendly ingame interface and many other features.

The Pure Faction patch is deprecated and no further updates are planned.
Players are recommended to use Dash Faction instead.

In addition to receiving active updates, Dash Faction offers far more bug fixes and useful features than Pure Faction, and just generally provides a better experience. Additionally, the Red Faction single player campaign, as well as many custom mods and levels, won't function properly (especially on newer computers) without Dash Faction.

Other related community services, such as the community Multiplayer Tracker, FactionFiles.com, and RedFaction.help are still actively supported.
