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...
95w 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...
104w ago - Insomniac Games CEO Ted Price has announced that Resistance 3 PS3 gets a Co-op Brutality Pack featuring Mastodon today, with a video trailer posted below.
To quote: On behalf of everyone at Insomniac Games and Sony I'm very excited to announce Resistance 3's Brutality Pack, available today for download from the PlayStation Store!
This new DLC, priced at $3.99, features a vicious survival mode where you face off against an army of ravenous Grims as they try to take you and your friends down. And yup, it's co-op - both online and offline.
Plus, you get a special Mick Cutler skin AND the sledgehammer unlocked for all of the game's modes, as well as a special Warden Static PS3 Theme.
But what has me most stoked personally is that the Brutality Pack fittingly features the music of the incomparable, Grammy nominated, Mastodon.
We're featuring seven tracks, including three songs from their just-released album The Hunter, two instrumental versions of Blood Mountain tracks and two special bonus songs from the deluxe version of The Hunter.
Check out the brand new trailer that we're releasing today to see the new gameplay mode in action set to one of Mastodon's latest singles, "Spectrelight".
112w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has shared a video spotlighting the Resistance 3 Survivor Pack, which includes Invasion Mode, new skins and hits PSN today!
To quote: We're excited to announce the release of the Resistance 3 Survival DLC pack today on the PlayStation Store for $3.99. First and foremost, the Survival DLC pack brings you a new game mode for multiplayer called Invasion.
The Invasion mode forces Human and Chimeran teams to divide their resources with the goal of holding multiple control nodes on the map simultaneously. The more nodes your team holds, the faster you score points - and thus, achieve victory.
There is a lot of deep strategy in determining which nodes to attack, as well as how many players should hang back to defend your nodes while retaining enough offensive force to successfully attack enemy nodes. We hope you enjoy it!
That's not all though - the Survival DLC pack includes special multiplayer skins of some of the major survivors from the game: Herbert, Jonathan, Jean, and Charlie. You'll also get a bonus Resistance 3 Survivor Concept Art Static XMB Theme.
It's been just over a month since we launched Resistance 3, and we hope that you've gotten the chance to jump online and experience the game's multiplayer...
