Resistance 3 Preview

This Resistance 3 preview gives a quick look at what can be expected from Insomniac Game’s upcoming science fiction first person shooter video game!

Developed by Insomniac Games and published by Sony Computer Entertainment for the PlayStation 3, Resistance 3 is the third title in the Resistance series and is the sequel to the best-selling PlayStation 3 launch title Resistance: Fall of Man.

The game is set in August 1957; the United States of America is lost. Four years after Resistance 2, dishonorably discharged Sentinel Joseph Capelli has given up fighting the Chimeran menace; he has been reduced to hiding with other survivors, including his wife and young son. Approximately ninety percent of Earth’s population are dead or have been turned into Chimera.

It will be released on September 6th (US), September 8th (JP & AUS) and September 9th (EU) 2011!

Key Features of Resistance 3

Here is a list of key elements that will be available in Insomniac Game’s Resistance 3, based on news and announcements made so far.

The Weapon Wheel
The weapon wheel from Fall of Man returns. All weapons are upgradeable, and become more powerful the more they are used.

No Regenerating Health
The system of regenerative health has been dropped for a circular system of health. This will force players to play more carefully and look around the levels for sym-bacs, however the durability of the player against all attacks is much higher than in previous games.

Open Level Design
The open level design will allow players to tackle scenarios based on their play style.

Playable Character Dexterity
The player’s (Capelli) movement has been improved to make him more agile, now he has the ability to climb over walls and through windows. These changes apply to both the Campaign and Multiplayer.

A Bonus for Playstation Plus Subscribers
A beta has been released for multiplayer exclusively for PlayStation Plus subscribers! This includes two maps, and it allows the player to upgrade the character only up to level twenty (in order not to reveal all features and abilities.) This will be released free-for-all on August 30th 2011 – not long to go now!

Weather Effects
Weather in Resistance 3 will not be static as in previous games but will include special effects such as rain and wind.

Resistance 3 features 16 player competitive online multiplayer with both deathmatch and objective-based modes. There will also be a customizable progression system in which players can spend points (earned by playing online) to unlock customized loadouts that include various tactical and combat perks.

Multiplayer maps are set in locations around the world such as the Fort Lamy prison in the Republic of Chad, Africa; a Trainyard in Bogoto, Columbia; a seaside map set in Wales, and Alice Springs, Australia – some of which will no be present in the main game! There will be no 8-player co-operative mode.
