MusterBuster, EU Community Leader: "If, like us, you're eagerly awaiting the launch of Resistance 2 for PLAYSTATION®3 this November, you'll no doubt be pleased to hear that an opportunity to play the game before launch is coming in October.
Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) has just announced a competitive online multiplayer event running in October, powered by PLAYSTATION®Network. The event will allow PS3 owners the opportunity to be the first to explore new levels, modes and weapons – as well as provide Insomniac Games, the developer of Resistance 2, and SCEE with feedback on the game.
No further details are available as yet, but we'll bring you more info as soon as we have it. In the meantime, here's a preview of the multiplayer mode:
"The sequel to 2007's critically-acclaimed shoot-up Resistance: Fall of Man, Resistance 2 sees Nathan Hale back on his home turf, taking the fight to the foe.
The game's multiplayer modes are set to make a huge impact. Co-operative play allows eight-player squads to undertake a fully independent online campaign built specifically for co-op play, with players choosing from three different character class types: Soldier, Specialist and Medic.
Players can also look forward to vast 60-person online battles in which they join squads with distinct battlefield objectives and fight it out on PLAYSTATION Network. The combination of squad objectives and large player-count will give Resistance 2 the perfect blend of epic battlefield chaos and intimate close-quarters combat."
