Many of you have probably heard about Global Resistance by now. If you haven’t yet, now is the time! I wanted give you more details about what Global Resistance is as well as explain some of the tweaks we’ve made since launch (I’m looking at you “guy who stopped playing because the humans always won”).
Global Resistance is a massive online strategy game developed by Soap Creative. Here’s the official definition: Global Resistance is a free-to-play online strategy game set amidst mankind’s final stand in the Resistance universe. You enlist as a Chimera or Human commander and take over the world to unlock exclusive Resistance 3 multiplayer skins, in-game titles and XP boosters. Customize your base, build and deploy your personal arsenal alongside thousands of other players, or attack your rivals directly in head-to-head skirmishes. But what does all that mean? How do you play Global Resistance?
First, you need to go to MyResistance.net and sign up. Currently you have to use your Facebook login, but soon we will allow for PSN logins as well. Once you have a MyRes 3.0 account you just need to sign in and go to MyResistance.net/Global. Here is where it gets real. Whatever side you choose, is the side you are on forever… like forever, ever. Choose wisely! Do you want to be a human fighting off the Chimeran threat? Or do you want to flip the tables for once and be that unstoppable force?
No matter what side you choose, it’s all about dominating the world. You and the rest of your team will be fighting a real-time war 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Each war is broken up into rounds; the time of each round, as well as the number of rounds, varies between wars. But the goal is always the same. Place troops early and often, drop bombs or spires on the other team, and place bunkers to defend or bunker busters to counter. Gain resources and bonuses by accomplishing territory missions while building up your base to replenish your troops and artillery. And finally, battle your friends one-on-one via a “rock, paper, scissors” style skirmish. Don’t forget to strategize during the battle with team specific message boards on MyResistance.net.
There is a lot on the line — far more than mere pride or stats! We have included some sweet unlocks exclusively from Global Resistance for Resistance 3. Rewards such as multiplayer skins and titles, concept art, and even XP boosters — if you’re good enough! All you need to do is sync your PSN account (once that feature is live) and you will automatically obtain anything you unlocked through Global Resistance when you insert the Resistance 3 disc.
Sound good? We think so, too. Since launch, 1.5 billion soldiers have been deployed. We are in the middle of our fourth war. 250,000 bombs have been dropped, 100,000 skirmishes fought and numerous rewards given. We have also made many tweaks to balance out the gameplay and things are looking pretty good. We have completely changed our balance of power mechanic to be fairer to each side. I assure you we are working around the clock to make this more than just a companion game. This is truly a Global Resistance and we need you.
Will you be the resistance… or crush it?
