Resistance 2 Unleashed

Holy @#%$ is the first thing I thought after reading all the information posted on Neogaf forums. This information comes from the latest issue of Game Informer which has the exclusive word on the sequel to the PS3 launch title Resistance: Fall of Man.

Before I relay all the information the main draw here is that Resistance 2 will have 8 player co-op and 60 player multiplayer. The 8 player co-op is over the PSN of course and you can do 2 player co-op locally.

There will be 2 campaigns one which follow the returning hero Nathan Hale and one based on co-op. There will be classes this time for multiplayer like Heavy, Special Ops and Medics. A new vehicle called the Chameleon (Stalker with cloak).

The best part about this is that Resistance 2 will release Fall 2008. There is a lot more information below but Insomniac is not letting up. I’ve never heard of 8 player co-op for a console and if the first Resistance and Ratchet and Clank says anything is that Insomniac will deliver.

The new year just started and I’m wishing it was fall already.

Checking it out now… will update. (didn’t see this on first two pages so assumed it hasn’t been posted)

EDIT 1: HUGE cooperative game… EIGHT-PLAYER story-driven campaign along side single-player campaign. SIXTY-PLAYER Competitive modes… HUGE United States Landscapes as backdrops.

EDIT 2: “It is, in short, a tour de force for the untapped might of the PlayStation 3”

EDIT 3: Narrative stays with Hale the whole time… not Rachel. Hale shot down in Iceland, escapes to US and becomes part of program called Sentinels…

EDIT 4: Chameleon.. Stalker with total cloaking ability

EDIT 5: Overcoming stigma that boss encounters don’t work in FPS games..

EDIT 6: Eight player coop over PSN, two player local

EDIT 7: CLASSES! Unique character with one of three basic templates… tank with heavy weaponry, special ops for distance (bullseye modified with zoom), medic

I’m READING FAST!…7131205/p1/?13

I cant make my own thread, stupid gaf mods., someone make a thread!

EDIT 8: Online matching… standard difficulty discarded for scaled challenges for team skill..

EDIT 9: Partially randomized geometry… levels are different with each playthrough

EDIT 10: again… 60 players online. want sense of epic b attle.. dont want fast-furious gameplay to be focus, more focused on squad v squad.

EDIT 11: will log into smaller four-to-eight man lobbies for each squad… encouraging communication and camaraderie, squad will be tasked witha particular objective. careful level design aims to deliver intense combat zones or small team conflicts that flow within arena of larger battle.

EDIT 12: Dedicated gaming community with stat servers for faster matchmaching than any console game of 2007. full-featured profile pages through will incorporate social networking concepts. open clan and party system to encourage community…no player invites needed.

EDIT 13: Aiming to deliver mobile-phone-quality sound.

EDIT 13: Aiming to deliver mobile-phone-quality sound.

EDIT 14: Futher tapped power of PS3… more enemies onscreen, better AI, better lighting and shaders (SCREENSHOTS LOOK AMAZING!!!). More comples normal mapping and detail mapping combine to deliver textures that look amazing from afar and at extremely close distances.

EDIT 15: AI getting a lot more attention.. will scaled on-the-fly to players perspective and viewpoint… aka enemies cloesr to the player will actually have more spohisicated AI routines than those further away. assailants in your direct field of view received heightened intelligence. easily more cunning than before

sorry for typos… typing fast

EDIT 16: listened to complaints… working on solution to long checkpoints and health system. not positive what final solution will be.

EDIT 17: “Our time playing was a blast”… each character class contributes in a unique way and “we loved the strategy-laden medic”… unique sense of teamwork

EDIT 18: Mysterious “Cloven”

EDIT 19: “Resistance 2 will be too epic to dismiss as anything but one of the biggest, boldest, and most high-reaching titles of 2008. It’s a game that won’t be ignored.” [END ARTICLE]
