Resistance 2 Patch 1.40 Details

If you played Resistance: Fall of Man, you know that Insomniac continually looked for ways to improve the online experience, even several months after the game's release. We're taking the same approach with Resistance 2, as patch 1.40 will be available for download on Monday, January 26 (you'll automatically receive the download prompt the next time you play the game).

Lots of great updates in this patch!

Oh, and this is great news for those that complained about this:

"Now you may be asking, “But what about adding the option to save the second player’s character progress?” Truth be told, it required a certain PS3 firmware that wasn’t available at the time of Resistance 2’s release. We now have that firmware and are currently working to implement the feature. As soon as it’s ready, we’ll get it out to you."

personally, i'm interested as to when they'll add the ability for p2 to play the same ranking character as p1. like say i have a lvl 30 medic and a lvl 30 spec ops, why can't my p2 play at that level?

that's my biggest gripe about coop. and i'm happy they finally nerfed the medic xp gain too. even though i was out scoring them as spec ops anyways..

I wish you could play with the same group once a game is over instead of having to have them join you. I know that this promotes the games Clan support option, but it is kinda silly that I can destroy some Chimera in a co-op game with a good team then once the match is finished I can't just go into an intermission with that same team and launch into another game with those players like you can with COD.

From the playstation blog:

"this is great. I do have a question, will there be any chance of getting some more maps anytime soon? Its not that im board of them, just like new stuff!! thanks!!"

multiple login confirmed for the next PSN/PS3 update? if so, thank Insomniac for bring this awesome feature to R2 which made Sony to realize that this is needed in the PSN.

Ju3161d ago

This already works in LBP. R2 was out earlier (or so) and this feature wasn't implemented there.

pwnsause3161d ago

LBP allows you to log in to your PS3 profile, not the PSN ID.

Karum3161d ago

No it doesn't, at least not yet but I'm willing to bet LBP will allow a second PSN account to be logged in just as R2 will since now the firmware includes the needed feature to add such functionality, at least according to Insomniac.

Ju3161d ago

Hm, I am pretty sure I kept all my saves and the trophies when I was playing with my kids (on a second machines). I also think I kept the my costume. But I am not sure, maybe not (I copy my saves from time to time). I probably have to try that again.

^^ Sorry I had to... Anyways, this patch sounds good. I am glad I have my lvl 30 medic already!!!

Moving Stalkers sounds fun!!!

And the note about 2player login is probably the most exciting part of this update, even though it isnt coming with 1.4

pwnsause3161d ago

i think it would allow more than 2 players to login though since this is a General PSN update. with this feature, games like RE5, LBP and Motorstorm: Pacific Rift can utilize this feature

Ju3161d ago

Is it me or did they make it harder ? I mean walking stalker is definitively harder then a static one. And the "medic tuning" can only mean less XP, because currently playing medic will always win the game.

Pennywise3161d ago

Darkseider, Spec ops at high levels OWNS. I do not have one yet, I was working on my Solider before FO3 distracted me. I will be going back to get rank 31 when this patch is out.

Currently rank 27 or 28.

sounds good. just in time for the weekend.

Nineball21123161d ago

Not to bum you out... but it's not available until next Monday:

"patch 1.40 will be available for download on Monday, January 26 "

Kyur4ThePain3161d ago (Edited 3161d ago )

I want to play R2 again. My copy was in my launch PS3 when it died a while back and I couldn't get it out. Waiting for it to be returned. :(

EDIT
A disagree! Wow, I guess I don't want to play it again. Thanks.
