Red Faction: Battlegrounds Screenshots Galore [Updated]

I’m kind of wondering why two dozen screenshots have been released for a game that’s been available for the last two months.
Wasn’t Red Faction: Battlegrounds released on the Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network on April 4th? That’s what the last press release says anyway, which is why it’s a little baffling as to why THQ have released such a mass amount of imagary now, or am I missing something like it’s coming to the PC, too?

Anyway, if you haven’t already played or even seen it yet, feast your optical orbs upon these…

[Edit] So, it seems that there is some DLC and these screens are probably from that, so here’s the info:
Based on the technology and weaponry from Red Faction: Armageddon, the Armageddon Pack takes place at the same time Darius Mason is saving Mars from the cultist Adam Hale. The EDF tank gets a makeover with three plasma mini-guns, while the LAV gets a Singularity cannon – this amazing weapon fires mini black-holes and literally eats the opposition for breakfast. This pack also gives a glimpse of the environments in Red Faction: Armageddon. Deep underground in Mars, you’ll encounter real extremes, from deep frozen ice to rivers of magma. Begin the journey to discover mankind’s newest and greatest threat.
