Resistance 3, the latest PS3 first-person shooter, has shipped in North America to continue Insomniac Games’ story as 1950’s America is occupied by the alien Chimeran forces. This third entry in the series marks the return of the fan-favorite weapon wheel so players have a wide variety of weapons at their disposal as they journey across the United States as humanity’s last hope for survival.
Resistance 3 also introduces a two-player online campaign cooperative mode, a focused 16-player progression-based online multiplayer experience, and HD stereoscopic 3D compatibility along with PlayStation Move support.
Yep, that all means you should get it from Amazon right now. Here’s the link: Resistance 3.
Set four years after the conclusion of Resistance 2, Resistance 3 centers around the heroic survival of Joseph Capelli, the last surviving Sentinel from a clandestine military program. Capelli attempts a harrowing journey across the country from Oklahoma to New York City in a desperate bid to save his family and humanity. With the Chimeran forces slowly terraforming and cooling the planet, Capelli leaves his wife and young son behind in Haven, Oklahoma to join Russian scientist Dr. Fyodor Malikov on the trip east in an attempt to deliver a devastating blow to the occupying Chimeran forces.
Resistance 3 continues the franchise tradition of including a fully-loaded arsenal of new and unique human and Chimeran weaponry, along with the return of fan-favorites from both Resistance: Fall of Man and Resistance 2. While iconic weapons like the Marksman have been completely rebuilt for added functionality and firepower, Resistance 3 also introduces soon-to-be classics like the Mutator and Deadeye that add new strategic elements to the gameplay. In addition to the return of the weapon wheel, a new upgradable weapon system also allows players to increase the firepower and functionality of each weapon.
Additionally, Insomniac Games has re-designed the multiplayer experience for Resistance 3, with a more focused 16-player progression-based multiplayer experience that takes players to locations around the globe. With a deep, customizable progression system, players will be able to create their own progression paths through the multiplayer experience by earning and spending points to customize and upgrade their load-outs to match their own unique play style.
Resistance 3 allows players to team up with another player and tackle the campaign cooperatively in both local/split-screen and online. To deliver the most realistic visual experience, Resistance 3 is also playable in HD stereoscopic 3D, as well as compatible with PlayStation Move motion controller and the PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter peripheral. Launching alongside the standalone game, the Resistance 3 Doomsday Edition provides players with everything they need to start their journey: Resistance 3 the game, a PlayStation Move motion controller, a PlayStation Move navigation controller, the PlayStation Eye camera and a PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter.
Gamers also have a new way to interact with the Resistance universe — the Global Resistance online multiplayer game, developed by Soap Creative in cooperation with Insomniac Games. Launched July 21, Global Resistance is a free-to-play online strategy game set amidst mankind’s final stand in the Resistance universe.
