Resistance 3 Pre-order Bonuses: Hale Returns, SRPA Black Ops and more

Do you like burning Chimera to a crisp with Air Fuel Grenades? Maybe you want to play as Nathan Hale on the Chimeran battlefield? Or perhaps you’d rather wear Chimera teeth as a war trophy? If so, we’ve got something special for you. Today, we’re announcing the Resistance 3 pre-order program, offering unique packages and bonuses to customize your Resistance 3 experience when it launches this fall

Here’s the full rundown:


Joseph Capelli wears a necklace of Chimeran teeth during Resistance 3. Show that you are the resistance with this authentic replica that symbolizes the battle against the Chimera.

Pre-ordering at GameStop grants access to a unique multiplayer booster, which allows you to start Resistance 3 multiplayer at Level 5. This also offers immediate flexibility and character customization options from the moment you begin the online competitive game.


Show off your Resistance 3 fandom in competitive online play with this pre-order package that offers a special set of five custom name titles, including Sentinel. The Sentinels are an elite group of soldiers in Resistance, and the only way to obtain these exclusive multiplayer PSN tags is by pre-ordering at Wal-Mart.


The No. 60 Air Fuel Grenade has been issued for combating Chimera in tight spaces commonly found in urban conflicts. The grenade will adhere to almost any surface, biological or otherwise, and deploy a cloud of flammable vapor. Once released, the cloud ignites, creating a massive explosion.

This fan favorite grenade makes a special return to the single-player campaign of Resistance 3 – but only for those who pre-order from Amazon.

Lt. Nathan Hale skipped his viral inhibitor treatments in the final hours of Resistance 2 in order to continue the fight against the Chimera. Play as him in his final hours with this special multiplayer skin, letting you bring Hale to the battlefields of Resistance 3.

The backbone of the US effort against the Chimera during the war, Black Ops troops were a common site at SRPA facilities and during special operations. Mostly killed and destroyed, this special multiplayer skin lets you return as one of the most mysterious soldiers from R:FOM and R2.

Resistance 3, the latest installment of the post-apocalyptic franchise from Insomniac Games, invades North American store shelves on September 6th, 2011.

  • Very disappointed the R3 survivor edition isnt coming to the US. Seriously think about not buying R3 now. :-(

  • any news on when the beta starts? theres only like what 3 months until R3 releases and uncharted 3 beta starts at the end of june. hopefully the 2 wont conflict eachother, so maybe mid july/early august?

  • I probably wouldn’t even buy this game now because of this. We don’t get the collector nor special edition. We get a Call of Duty clone multiplayer.

  • @David Bull will there be a collectors edition? Please answer.


  • Pre-order bonuses are somewhat annoying and then to have different stores have different ones makes it more annoying. I understand the need to drum up pre-orders, but it gets to a point where it just fragments the day one purchase.

  • @50 WFMMK
    I am entitle to my opinion. So deal with it.

  • Can’t wait for this game but I seriously wish Sony can focus on the Blog Share much more. It’s there for a reason.

  • BloodyCow so am I…..and it looks like you’re not dealing with my opinion :(

  • looks like I’m pre-ordering from Best Buy (a store I despise, lol) wish Play-N-Trade had the Hale pre-order

  • hello USA people i am from the uk i understand u upset over eu geting the SPECIAL EDITION oh well now u know how we feel when u had a better LBP2CE

  • I would say wait. They’re doing the same for Infamous 2 and then they announced a collectors edition for the game with all the pre order DLC. So expect some chimera edition of Resistance 3 with all the pre order DLC

  • personally I don’t care about a CE of the game, just the game itself and the add-on for Hale

  • Guess i’ll go for Gamestop/EBgames

  • but really I’m more pumped for UC3 ::Ninja::

  • I’d really like to see a separate online co-op mode (like in R2) as a pre-order bonus than Air Fuel Grenades, multiplayer skins, etc.

  • still not enough to get me to shop at gamestop

  • WHAT? Capelli has ALOT more teeth on his necklace, how is it an authentic replica?

  • Wow. I’ve never had a comment of mine deleted before. Guess I must’ve struck a nerve. All I said was I loved the other resistance games, but I won’t buy anything for the playstation until things are fixed. $60+ in psn cards and 3 redeem codes that seem to be useless. And I made a comment about them not turning it back on until they can charge for it.

  • Insomniac games is the best, love resistance and ratchet & clank, but the preorder bonuses are hard to pick, y not have them all in a collectors edition, for both game. Or allow ppl to be able to pay for them at a later day.


  • Why must we choose!?

    Anyway we can get a special edition that includes all these extras? Like InFamous 2 Hero Edition.

  • NoCt3rNal_L1GHTs

    What can we expect from to co op mode in R3? And can we also expect a new game mode for multiplayer.

  • Prince_of_da_Bay

    no special editions for the U.S?

  • Hope the survivor edition is coming to the US, these are a bunch of bonuses I would rather have under one deal, Pull an Infamous 2 please.

  • We’ll order through Amazon as soon as we get the Pre-order credit from other titles in the pipeline. Air-fuel grenades it is. Thanks for the update!

  • i hate gamestop. but i want that necklace

  • I wish the Sentinel tags were an incentive for playing through R2 or even playing R2 co-op period. but fuel grenade sounds enticing, this would be my first Amazon purchase, I hope their customer service is great :-)

  • Extremely disappointed to see no mention of a collector’s/survivor edition for North America.

    Question: If I import from the UK, will the digital items work on my NA account?

  • Why would someone come on the US blog just to point out a big special edition difference on the other blog? I mean I get that you guys in the UK didn’t have a great LBP2CE but to tell you the truth the US one for LBP2 wasn’t that great neither. All this adds up to is just why in the world would you offer something for specific parts of the world and not in others? Do you not want more money from pre-orders!? It just doesn’t make any sense to me whatsoever.

  • Another useless game update and no Store update…FAIL!!

  • Gonna stay with my loyal retailer – Amazon!

  • Its far too bad that the store I work in doesn’t get pre-order goodies. We’re just too small. Hopefully there will be a collectors edition with a sharpshooter.

  • Hell to the YES!
    I already preordered and paid off my purchase of R3 from Gamestop, so I guess I’ll be getting the necklace. NEAT!
    I want the air fuel grenade/Hale skin though too :D
    I’ll just buy them when they’re available as dlc later. I just want to know if there will be a collectors edition? I wanna upgrade to that as soon as its announced!

  • Will these pre-order bonuses be made readily avaliable to those who purchase the CE edition (when announced)? That’s what I loved about the LittleBigPlanet 2 CE, it gave us *all* the retail pre-order DLC, hopefully R3 will do the same.

  • Nice,will be getting r3.Be nice to have some r3 avatars,I would get them all!

  • @David Bull you’re just going to skip all the questions about the Collectors Edition and answer everything else aren’t you? I will buy the collectors edition if there is one! OK, now there is $$ involved… Now will you answer?

  • What if i want all of the bonuses?!?!

  • i want those chimeran teeth.

  • Gamestop VS Amazon.

  • I can’t put a digital grenade next to my Helghast head, FO3 bobblehead, Naughty Bear statue, etc…

    Gamestop FTW!!! Gimme teeth.

  • This is a tough decision. This will be my next 60 dollar game after inFamous 2 (barring some cool PSP remakes this summer) and I might just get the collector’s edition if it has all of the bonuses. If not I only really buy from Best Buy so I guess its Nathan Hale skin for me.

  • cybershinigami87

    Well Amazon it is.

  • I like how we (Canadians) don’t even get a picture of our pre-order bonus, really comes off as an afterthought.

    You guys really love us! lol.

  • I really wish the pre-order bonuses would stop being divided up amongst retailers. Make something really cool and just let everyone have it. If you want to make DLC out of the other stuff later on then do that. These types of things end up polarizing the community and in some cases unbalance the entire game because one retailer will will get the majority of sales on the most valuable item, which in this case is instant Level 5 in multiplayer.

    On another note, “Authentic Replica?” Really?? hahahaha

  • Thank you for explaining the air fuel grenade. It isn’t so much that it’s removed, but modified and the original available as a supplement.

    Is there any truth to the R:FoM/R2 bunle? Are there any plans to patch trophies for Are:FoM? Are there any bonuses in R3 for those that have played the previous games?

  • I think I’ll just buy one of the European Survivor Editions and get them all, plus a ton of other cool extras. Region free gaming ftw.

  • will be available R3 beta for PSN+ in north america???

  • LOL @James on 67 That has got to be the best answer I’ve heard on any of these blogs. Good answer.

  • im happy about R3 but i would like an updae for the psn store
