1UP Previews: Resistance 2

Over the years, Insomniac Games has built up a reputation for releasing a new iteration of their Ratchet & Clank franchise yearly on PlayStation 2. One of the first developers to fully immerse themselves in PS3 development, Insomniac looks like it will now be splitting its hard work between Ratchet and Resistance, with each series continuing the tradition of a sequel every other year. Insomniac's wheel-o-development for 2008 has landed on Resistance, and the recent revelation of Resistance 2 in the pages of Game Informer piqued the curiosity of fans of the original. With a large list of upgrades and new content for the sequel, 1up set out to round up all the information that's been revealed about Resistance 2 so far, from both Game Informer and Insomniac's Full Moon Show podcast.

The story is too old to be commented.

Relcom3515d ago (Edited 3515d ago )

Thats incredible that they can finish it that fast. Mad props Insomniac

Blackmoses3515d ago (Edited 3515d ago )

WTF???!!!! how the hell!!!! When did they get started working on the thing...while they were coding Rachet and Clank?

Tell ya what, I wasn't like everybody else but sure does seem to be the PS3's year for the taking.
Damn!!! Single Player already done!!...<shaking my head>

BloodySinner3515d ago

I think they started working on Resistance 2 after the first game.

mikeslemonade3515d ago

Insomniac is a big company with around 100 members and they are using the Resistance engine so they're able to pump out a lot of games. The impressive thing here is they're able to make a game that doesn't feel rehashed unlike some unnamed Ubisoft games.

pharmd3515d ago

i know this can change, but (US) has it slated for 11/4/09.....i cant wait. COD4 online is awesome but theres so many things from RFOM that i miss online

I'm ready to throw RFOM in and just get warmed up a little

It's amazing that despite their high quality and fast development time, they still manage to be one of the best places to work at:

"The company has been named as one of the top 10 Best Small Companies to work for in America for 3 years in a row for their relaxed environment, flexible hours, yoga, Fragfest Fridays, movie nights, and indoor 7/11. The company also took its entire workforce on a free cruise."

TruthBTold3515d ago

no wonder, all that relaxation, support, and company love can only help developers feel more inspired to do the great job that they do. Great developers from a great company.

SRuN43515d ago

They were working on R2 before R1 was even on the shelves. On their last podcast they said before their games are even on the shelves they're already working on the next thing. And I believe they have two teams, one for Resistance and one for Rachet.

pwnsause3515d ago

I can imagine that sony brings in a dev team of their own to assist them if they have a little bit of trouble, but I doubt it, these guys possibly already know the PS3 inside out!

IntelligentAj3515d ago

Can't wait to get this game!!! That's pretty damn amazing though. How? And why did BloodySinner get 2 disagrees? All he did was state what the company was known for.

Guwapo773515d ago

Because they worship the Anti-Christ...

sonarus3515d ago

man insomniac devs dnt sleep dnt yall get it. They cough up games like its nothing. Resistance 2 is already complete all thats left is polish and 8 months of polish will make it real pretty. Not sure if sony plans to show it at GDC or maybe they will save it for E3 but as of now there is no shooter boasting what resistance 2 can do. Coming out the gate with a seperate coop mode with 8 players and then 60 player online is crazy. Now i am scared the single player campaign will be a bit short. Not that the value of the game isnt as high as it can be with the 2nd coop mode but i was a big fan of the singleplayer hopefully its at least as long as the 1st one. The only game that is currently threatening ps3 for spot of 2 best shooters (killzone2) is gears of war. Not to count out epic yet as they are also fantastic and they have pretty much led this generation with their unreal engine. Unfortunately the unreal engine is no longer as impressive with other game engines begining to match it so we will see if epic can maintain that top shooter spot. Regardless though gonna be a great yr for gamers

BobDog3515d ago

sonarus they stated the length of the campaign game earlier, i forgot what they said but i think they had stated 8-10 hours, and also said that the co-op will take just as long or more likely longer

They already finish the Single player, and are working on the Multi-player. Do anyone want an Open or Close beta? I know I do.

PlayStation3603515d ago

Chances getting in Closed are next to impossible. :P

TheHater3515d ago

Unless you are a GAP member or know some people.

PlayStation3603515d ago

Not a Gap member and I don't know anyone. Impossible for me bro. :P

BTW: what's up with the disagrees lol

TheHater3515d ago

just a fanboy that is too scared to show, and post why he/she disagree.

sonarus3515d ago

thats what happens when there is too much good ps3 news. A couple of months ago when the bad news was piling on with delays and poor ports and lost exclusives the xbots were dancing. However the tide started to turn at E3 when mgs4 remained exclusive that was pretty much when the bad news started to go dwn and good news started to come up and a lot of childish fanboys simply can't get over it so from time to time they post random disagrees to make themselves feel better. You shouldnt let it bother you. This is not a popularity contest as long as you still have your bubbles

gonzopia3514d ago

Resistance 2 is one of the titles that could draw some real envy from Xbox gamers. It's a sci-fi based shooter - a la Halo or Gears, but what I've seen so far looks incredible, much richer than those other two games.
