Resistance 3 Invades Today, See the Final Weapon: The Cryogun


It’s with a lot of pleasure that I write today’s post. It has been nearly three years since you last played Resistance 2, and in a studio where we keep up a game-a-year schedule, that seems like a very long time to wait. I’m very happy to announce the release of Resistance 3 in North America today, as well as the release across Europe over the next 2-3 days. The team here has poured three years of their lives into bringing you the heroic survival of Joseph Capelli on his cross-country trip to New York.

This brutal alternate 1957 America is our most polished take on the Resistance universe yet. Along the way, you’ll see the dust storm from a Chimeran Terraformer, a flooded town, young rebels fighting to take back St. Louis from the Chimera, haunted mine towns and a snow packed New York City. To make it even better, you can experience the whole game in 2-player co-op, either split-screen or online. Still not sold? Check out the launch trailer –which gives you the first-ever glimpse at the 12th and final R3 weapon: The Cryogun:

For those of you who love multiplayer, Resistance 3 features our most focused experience yet, letting you join fifteen other players in battles located in maps across the world. Our theme for Resistance 3 MP was to create something you could only see in Resistance. The 60-level progression and our new ability and attribute system allows you to create a loadout exactly to your play style, and further establishes our “only in Resistance” theme. You’ve seen two great maps in the beta, Wales (Seaside) and Bogota (Trainyard), and two more great ones at PAX and the Insomniac Community Day (Republic of Chad and Australia). There’s another 8 maps we’ve never shown before, including a snow-packed map and one with some great Chimeran Architecture. We have 4v4 and 2v2 maps as well. In short, we believe that R3 MP is a fully-featured experience.

Resistance 3 Doomsday Edition

For those of you excited about playing with PlayStation Move or the Sharpshooter, Resistance 3 fully supports both. Don’t have Move yet? No problem, the Doomsday Edition contains Resistance 3, the PlayStation Eye, a PS Move Controller, a Nav Controller and a Sharpshooter. Everything you need to repel the Chimeran invasion with the accurate control and aiming precision that Move brings you. Got a 3DTV? You’ll be excited to know the game supports stereoscopic 3D as well.


That said, we aren’t resting. Our team is also happy to reveal the first DLC we will have ready to release on October 4th. The Survival Pack brings you a brand new game mode: Invasion. Invasion requires both teams to divide resources to simultaneously own multiple control points on the map. As you hold the nodes, you’ll receive more points. It hearkens back to the wonderful balance in Resistance: Fall of Man of knowing when to send troops on the offensive, and when to hold other players back. In addition to the Invasion mode, your $3.99 gets you four new skins of the various Survivors in the game, as well as a static XMB theme. Also on October 4th, we will release a patch for ALL players that will bring two new maps with it as well.

We’re very excited to get Resistance 3 into your hands this week. We look forward to playing MP online with you soon!

    Exactly, you are a paying customer. You have to choice of what to buy, when to buy it, and if you want to buy it. Everything you comment on has a negative attitude and I bet that most people don’t even want to look at but they do and laugh at you. It’s funny how you only comment on Resistance 3 stuff and never anything actually worth commenting on like the PS Plus for September or the good games released this week.

    P.S. If you do have a “company” of your own, I can’t see you being in business much longer, especially with the way you talk to people. Learn some manners, take some business classes. You would understand if you didn’t make any money on your “products”.

    Let’s say your “company” makes calculators. They are as good as TI 84s so you sell them at $100. A local electronics store just so happens to buy new/used electronics. The get several shipments of your calculators. Weeks down the road, people sell them back. The used version of your calculator sells for $50. The store now has enough used calculators to match the new ones so they stop buying yours. You no longer make any money and your “company” goes broke.

  • @dilbag you are a blatant liar. I am making factual arguments, since I know how business works. you however are the troll not myself. The difference is I know whats going on while you know nothing. You have no facts to back up your wild accusations. Ergo you are a liar. The online pass is an obvious scam as is everything your saying. I put it to you some time ago to come up with a single example of one games developer who went bankrupt for lack of an online pass. You can’t cause there are none. I asked you to justify psn being “free” with these paid passes, but you can’t since its plain to see such is not the case. Your lying like a cheap rug yet you accuse me of hypocrisy. I run a business successfully yet you make absurd ad hom attacks with no basis in fact. Yet you accuse me of being a troll. You are an extremely childish clown and it shows badly. The more your scream the more you’re laughed at. Now your being told to man up and either put up or shut up. Since you’ve proven yourself unable to act in an adult manner there’s only one thing for you to do, that is leave it to those who are capable as you clearly are not.

  • One last point I must again point out to the irrelevant trollboy. A surplus electronics store in your bogus example isn’t stealing from anyone, nor is it putting the ficticious calculator company out of business. Your pitiful attempts at arguing the indefensible are a waste of everyones time. As has been pointed out to you several times you have NO FACTS to back up your outrageous accusations. You can’t even construct a coherent sentence. You are the only hypocrite here and you can’t even do a good job at that. Now its time for you leave and take your fail with you. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

  • @PirateHarlock

    Ok, troll, you must not know the definition. Apparently you don’t run a business since you seem to have a personally of a donkey and didn’t answer any of my questions. Apparently I know more than you. I lied about nothing while you stated no facts. If you ran a business you would know that it’s Sony’s product. It’s their product, not yours. The only thing you own is the disc, unless you buy a digital copy (It’s stated on the PSN).

    With companies going under without a pass, a few THQ (one in austrailia, one in the US, and one in Europe) went under just a couple months ago.

    How am I lying? It’s a game. That’s all it will be, that’s all it can be. If you run a successful business, why the hell are you complaining? You talking as if you deserve something. Your talking as if you are owed something. Your talking like a cheap whore. Switch to Xbox. But you would be doing the same thing, just on much larger scale.

    Childish, hmm? I believe it was you who called everyone else (including me) a troll first. You must be at least 13 years old. No one in any adult manner try to comment in any way that you are.

    If you talk like that in your so called “business” you are guaranteed to fail.

  • @PirateHarlock

    Childish now? Yes you are. When did I say the store was stealing anything? If the major retailer for the calculators isn’t buying from them, then yes, they will most likely go out of business. Funny how you never gave any example or facts on how buying used/new products effects a business. Take your hypocrisy somewhere else. That sentence didn’t even makes sense, “You are the only hypocrite here and you can’t even do a good job at that.” Who is the one that can’t form coherent sentences? Buy games from Sony but complain when a game comes out with a pass, mind you it just came out so you have no choice but to buy new. Take your hypocrisy to your own “business”.

  • Oh, not to mention, you talk as if you deserve something. Or more like you are owed something. You don’t deserve anything, you work for it. You would know if you had your own “business”. Don’t talk to someone and don’t act like a cheap whore. Maybe it will get you somewhere in life.

  • I think what Gamestop and Bestbuy is doing with used games is wrong as they’re taking that money from developers and publisher sales. I agree and fully support online passes for that reason and buy every game NEW. If I want to hold off I wait until the game is cheaper and you can always find cheap deals on brand new games if you know where to look. Support Sony and game developers, buy new and stop supporting that garbage known as Gamestop.

  • hey James any plans on releasing a R3 dynamic theme and R3 avatars ?

  • @dilbag,

    You’re really working hard at trolling both myself and everyone else here. I do run a successfull business your silly buffoonery won’t change that. What makes me successful is I do my work right the first time and I’m paid ONCE for doing said work. I don’t botch the job and return again several times asking for yet more money. Therein lies the difference that eludes your demented illogic. Btw it is I who asked you a question, name ONE developer or publisher who went bankrupt from lack of an online pass on this so called “free” psn? but I know why you haven’t answered and never will. There isn’t any. You have no facts nor even the ability to utter a rational thought. Instead you spew insolant tirades like the sad little person everyone sees you for. Your only defense against fact is infantile insults, the latest being to call me a “whore”. I’m publicly calling you out on your lies, If you have one shred of ability find me and say that to my face. You’ll find yourself in court facing legal action your head will spin, and since your most likely a minor no doubt your parents would be involved at that point. I could almost feel sorry for them for the humilation you’re causing them.

  • @PirateHarlock

    Again, you must not know what trolling is, especially when you called everyone who has commented on here or anyone who has commented against you a troll. You sir, are trolling. Everything you spew out is negative nonsense. What do you do in your “business”? That’s right, you don’t have one, I forgot. But let’s say the mister troll has one. Payment for desk work or manual labor is way different for the payment for/of a product. You would know that if you ran a business. BAM, your arguement is dead. Silly buffoonery, huh? It is you that’s is being silly and incoherent, with no factual basis what so ever.

    I already answere your question, now answer mine. If can’t completely read yet, I stated ONE developer, just several branches of that ONE developer. Need another child? If Nintendo doesn’t do anything or do decent with the holidays and Wii U, you can see them as a third-party developer, if that, in the near future. You don’t have business, that’s why you aren’t answering. Answer me this: Would you have bought Resistance 3 for $60 plus tax without the pass? If the answer is yes, it only furthers your hypocrisy.

  • I honestly could care less how anyone sees me, like it matters to me what they think of me. It’s amazing how you can have a PSN account be hate Sony so much. Even more hypocrisy. The only reason you are upset over this pass is because you probably buy all your games used, otherwise, if you had a business, there shouldn’t a reason to complain. Give me facts.

    To even further your hypocritical logic, you talk about rights yet you would try to take away my right of free speech. I believe the only “terrorist” here is you. Get a new hobby, leave video games alone, seeing as they are too expensive for you.

    More of your hypocrisy, you main are arguement is now lost. On the second page, no one even said anything about the PSN Pass or anything to on that matter, but you called everyone trolls. You said, “Used games are not illegal.” No one said they were? Who is the one enabling here, that would be you. Taxes. Isn’t that the thing you pay on anything you buy? Terrorism. I seriously don’t know where you got that, probably from your invisible friend. Video game bankruptcy. If you are telling me that no video game company has ever gone under, your sadly mistaken. You arguement is now in void.

  • @dilbag, you’ve wasted too much of everyones time already so let me spell it it for you one last time:

    – I AM A PAYING CUSTOMER standing up for my rights
    – You are a miserable troll defending an obvious scam, and failing badly I might add
    – I pay for my games ONCE and expect value for my money
    – You are a foul mouthed child who’s parents pay for you
    – I have presented logical arguments backed by FACT
    – You resort to defamation of the worst sort, even calling me a “cheap whore”
    – I have repeatedly challenged you to prove a single developer going bankrupt from lack of any online pass on PSN which is supposedly free. I have also challenged you to show your face and openly state your case IN PUBLUC.
    – You continue to hide behind your keyboard, making baseless accusations, resorting to Libel, yet you call me the hypocrite.

    I could go on but the point has been already made. You lost. End of story. Now crawl back under your rock and hope nobody ever finds you again. You have no legal grounds for your baseless accusations nor could you stand any chance at all in any defemation case brought against you.

  • @PirateHartard

    -If you buy used, Sony doesn’t need to give you anything because you aren’t their customer. If you buy new, no reason to complain. More hypocrisy. The only thing you own is the disc, not the software or engine that made the game. It’s different if you buy digital.
    -You are the one trolling sir.
    -Buy new, pay once for full service that you deserve from Sony. Buy used, don’t expect as much service since you aren’t Sony’s customer.
    -Foul mouthed says the troll. And no, you are the child. I buy my own things.
    -You haven’t said any facts and haven’t backed up anything. All you did was try to point out flaws in my arguement, which there wasn’t any. You had no arguement to begin with.
    -What defamation? I said don’t talk like you are owed something like a cheap whore. You are the one who called yourself one.
    -You said any developer, you didn’t say on PSN until your last post but THQ is one developer incase you didn’t notice and so is Nintendo. You do know passes on on the 360 as well?
    -I don’t want to meet you, you might be some big, fat rapist for all I know. And about taking legal action, you couldn’t anyway. You dared me to call you something to your face, that itself would throw out the case.

  • Go on? You didn’t even say anything relevant to any form of arguement. The only thing that didn’t have to do with me, was the fact that you “pay” for games. You are done, you lost. EPIC FAIL! Nice try but not really. Trying to backlash at someone else’s arguement doesn’t make up for you lack of one. Leave the PSN. Funny how all my comments are longer than yours with your apparent “factual” information. Nothing you told me was fact except that you are a “paying customer”.
