Red Faction is a video game series created by Volition, Inc.
The first Red Faction game takes place on Mars, where a group of miners rebel against Ultor because of the horrible living conditions they have to face while on Mars. By the third game, Ultor is long gone and all that is left of it are a few ruins of Ultor buildings.
The Saints Row series features many references to Red Faction, but Volition have confirmed that the Saints Row and Red Faction universes are not linked, and that the Ultor references were only intended as Easter Eggs.
|Ultor||The Ultor corporation in Saints Row was a peripheral company who sponsored the Ultor Dome and had some Clothing items. In Saints Row 2, Ultor is a main antagonist. Ultor continues making appearances throughout the series.|
|Mars||In Ultor Exposed, when The Protagonist asks Tera where Ultor plans on mining, she responds by saying: "You wouldn't believe me if I told you". In Corporate Warfare, The Protagonist tells Eric Gryphon: "Ultor can go to Mars for all I care".|
|Masako||The head of the Mercenaries in Red Faction is called Masako, the name of the protection team of Ultor in Saints Row 2.|
