84w ago - Today Sony Senior Producer Frank Simon has unveiled the Survival Mode in Resistance: Burning Skies for PlayStation Vita.
To quote: Over the last couple of weeks we've been talking a lot about the highly anticipated multiplayer mode for Resistance: Burning Skies for PS Vita.
Supporting up to eight players over WiFi with a robust arsenal of powerful weapons and the precision and accuracy that come with dual-analog controls, Resistance: Burning Skies is sure to be the best FPS multiplayer experience available on a handheld.
We've already lifted the lid on the first two modes, Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch, and just last week at an event in San Francisco we revealed the title's last multiplayer mode, Survival Mode, an intense power struggle between humans and the gruesome Chimera.
Survival mode pits the players against each other in a race to the finish where only the strong survive. Here's how it works: in a battle of humans vs. Chimera, six players start as humans and two as Chimera.
As the Chimera players make a kils, their human victims are resurrected as Chimera so the balance slowly shifts. As the battle continues, the winner is the human player who lasts the longest in a match. We keep a timer running as you play so you can track your progress.
85w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Sid Shuman has made available some new video footage today spotlighting multiplayer action in Resistance: Burning Skies for the PS Vita console.
To quote: If you're in the San Francisco Bay Area, come by our community meetup tonight to go hands-on with Resistance: Burning Skies in a kill-or-be-killed multiplayer tournament!
If it's true that a shooter is only as good as its weapons, Resistance: Burning Skies is shaping up to be a delight indeed.
Take the Mule, a new double-barreled shotgun that dishes out devastating buckshot blasts and launches explosive bolts via its over-barrel crossbow. Or the ever-popular Auger, whose projectiles hungrily chew through walls to seek out warm flesh.
But my favorite gun so far is the lethal Hunter rifle, a long-range Chimeran burst-fire weapon with the ability to deploy an attack drone that you can guide towards your multiplayer foes with taps on the front touchscreen - tres sophisticated!
Playing a series of Wifi multiplayer matches in Resistance: Burning Skies in New York City last week was a valuable reminder that shooting ultra-powerful weapons just feels...

We know you've all been asking about multiplayer in Burning Skies, so please enjoy the first look at it in this new trailer!
When designing Resistance: Burning Skies, our goal was to bring a high-quality console experience to a handheld, and thanks to the power of the Vita, we've ended up with an unprecedented mobile FPS. Experience the dual analog sticks for precision aiming, touch screen interactivity for precise and quick secondary weapon fires, and portable online connectivity.
We've just showcased that game at an event in NYC, showing off some of the cool things we're doing with online:
89w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America Associate Product Marketing Manager Derek Osgood has made available a first look video trailer today of the story in Resistance: Burning Skies for the PS Vita handheld console!
To quote: With Resistance: Burning Skies marching steadily towards its May 29th release date on PS Vita, you may have been wondering who Tom Riley is and where his story fits into the grand scheme of the Resistance universe.
Today we're clearing up that question with a new story trailer you can watch right now!
Resistance: Burning Skies is, at its core, a story about an everyday hero becoming a legend. On August 15th, 1951, New York City fireman Tom Riley is called away during a seemingly routine fire call and finds himself thrust into the midst of the brutal Chimeran invasion (Resistance 2 fans: this parallels the period when Nathan Hale returns from Europe).
Riley is possessed with a singular determination to find his wife and child, but along the way he'll be embroiled in a far larger conflict that will determine the fate of New York and leave him a key inspirational hero of the Resistance.
For those of you watching closely, there were a couple other little tidbits revealed...
94w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment America Product Marketing Specialist Derek Osgood has announced today that Resistance: Burning Skies - The Chimera is set to infect PS Vita this coming May.
To quote: In case you missed our PS Vita video livechat today, PlayStation's John Koller revealed an official release date for Resistance: Burning Skies.
The Chimera will invade PS Vita on May 29, 2012, bringing you the world's first portable dual-analog FPS.
Resistance has always boasted iconic visual design, and today we can reveal the Burning Skies box art – a freshly slain Hybrid lying on the streets of New York City with the protagonist's fire axe resting in the rubble.
We like to think it recalls some of the eerie essence of the classic Resistance: Fall of Man box art, but we'd love to hear what you think!
Resistance: Burning Skies pulls you into an entirely new dimension of the Resistance universe. Set in a tale of survival during the August 1951 Chimeran invasion of the East Coast, you take control of Tom Riley, an everyday firefighter from New Jersey who is thrown headfirst into the teeth of the Chimeran war machine, forcing him to redefine his notions of duty and heroism.
As most of you know, this is going to be the first ever dual-analog FPS game on...
