Resistance 3 Multiplayer Revealed, PS3 Beta Later This Year

195w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has revealed Resistance 3 Multiplayer details today, and confirmed the PS3 Beta will be coming later this year.

To quote: As this post goes live, we are revealing our all-new multiplayer for Resistance 3.

We've said all along we wanted Resistance 3's MP mode to bring the best of both [Register or Login to view links] and Resistance 2's MP and co-op modes, and you're about to see just how we've managed to do that.

[Register or Login to view links] will feature 16-player Human vs. Chimera deathmatch and objective-based modes set in locations across the globe.

That may seem somewhat jarring after the 40 and 60-player mayhem in RFOM and R2. Rest assured though, our biggest motivation in determining our new player count was the fun times that we and the community had on maps like RFOM's Busyard and Rooftops, as well as the Bayou House and San Francisco maps in Resistance 2.

Resistance 3 will offer a very deep and customizable progression system. Players can create their own progression paths through multiplayer, spending their hard-earned points to customize loadouts that fit their unique playstyle.

We learned a lot from Resistance 2 co-op in terms of giving players the ability to create specific roles in a team and level up different abilities - which you will see with the various active tactical and support abilities, as well as the new personal and combat attributes.

For instance - each player can choose and level different support abilities - such as a Bubble Shield, Ammo Beacon (give ammo to teammates) or Radar Beacon (enhance your team's radar). There are also tactical abilities you can use against your enemies, such as the Doppelganger (projects an image of you nearby to distract enemies) or Dash (an explosive burst of speed to evade enemy attacks).

Furthermore, each player can select and level a personal attribute and a combat attribute. These range from the ability to have leapers bust out from your corpse, to start with more weapons in your arsenal, to reloading or firing at a faster rate. You will be able to truly customize your character loadout to fit your own unique playstyle in Resistance 3.

We've been working on this new direction for close to two years now, polishing and refining our maps. We're having a ton of fun playing Resistance 3 in the office every day. We will be bringing a multiplayer beta to PSN later this year, so stay tuned to our newsletters (Check today's for the first news on [Register or Login to view links]'s Community Day on March 29th!)!

I played the 1st title, RFoM for 1 year active. I don't bought any other game, so yeah, this one was amazing ! I played Resistance 2 by a friend and was dissapointed, Bullseye secondary weapon with limited shots ? No way ! Hope Resistance 3 will get the best of both worlds.
