94w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has shared a peek at some Resistance 3 PS3 multiplayer Alice Springs video footage below today for fans!
To quote: If you've been following Resistance 3 coverage over the last few months, one of the cool features of our game is that many of our main multiplayer maps take place outside of the United States (where the single-player campaign focuses on Joseph Capelli's harrowing journey from Haven, Oklahoma to New York City).
In the multiplayer beta, you will find the Trainyard map, set in sunny Bogota, Colombia, as well as the Seaside map set in Glamorgan, Wales, UK. Earlier this year, we revealed the Prison MP map, which is set in Fort Lamy, Republic of Chad in Africa.
Today we're revealing the fourth of our major 16-player maps for Resistance 3. This map brings the fight to the Australian Outback, as the Main Street of Alice Springs, Australia is our latest MP map. Situated in the Northern Territory of Australia, Alice Springs is a sun-baked, dusty, desert town in Australia.
The land down under has always had an interesting place in the lore of Resistance, being the site of a gigantic refugee camp called Avalon One, and for years...
94w ago - Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has posted up a video today detailing both the passive and active abilities in Resistance 3 Multiplayer for the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: Hopefully you caught the news yesterday that Resistance 3 has gone gold! We also debuted our new story-centric campaign trailer.
You may also know that the Resistance 3 Multiplayer Beta early access has begun for owners of specially marked copies of SOCOM 4. We're still very much in beta mode, with regards to fixes (especially for matchmaking to address the freezes and disconnects), so please keep reporting what you see.
We hope to have a patch soon that will address many of these issues, but in the meantime, thanks for bearing with us.
In the spirit of the multiplayer beta, our new behind-the-scenes development diary discusses our inspirations in developing Resistance 3's multiplayer philosophy, from play modes and weapons to special abilities. Hopefully you've caught our previous entries in the dev diary series, but if not, you can catch...
98w ago - Today Naughty Dog Community Strategist Arne Meyer has announced that the Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta hit 1 million+ players and shared news of a new co-op adventure and map arriving on July 10, 2011.
To quote: One day after the Beta went fully public, we passed one million unique players in the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Beta.
Not only that, but the player count is growing with each passing day! We couldn't be prouder of our community coming out in such numbers to play in the Uncharted 3 Multiplayer Beta.
Next week is the FINAL week in the Beta - we'll be shutting down the servers on Thursday, July 14th - so be sure to get your fill of UNCHARTED 3 before it goes away for a few months.
This will also be your last week to hit the requirements to receive the rewards we're offering that will be active for the retail version of UNCHARTED 3 -- rewards such as UNCHARTED 3 PSN Beta Tester Avatar, Treasure Hunter's Starter Pack, in-game cash on day one and more.
On Sunday, July 10th, we'll be updating the available gametypes and maps in the UNCHARTED 3 Multiplayer Beta according to the schedule...

July 4 to July 9 Gametypes:
Team Deathmatch, Free For All, Team Objective, Hardcore, Co-op Hunter
Maps: Airstrip, Chateau
You'll notice Team Objective and Co-op Hunter as new additions for this week. I've been liking the Co-op Hunter gametype lately - the twist of adding in human players into what seems to be a Co-op mode is quite intriguing.
You can catch some clips of Co-op Hunter in action in the video below:
Along with the update to the available gametypes, we've updated the video playlist for UNCHARTED TV to add...
