Resistance 2 - 60 People Deathmatch! 8 Player Co-op! Coming this Fall!

by PacoDG

Exclamation point! The way I came about this huge news is through NeoGAF in an amusing post that gives you the scoop, I enjoyed the way the writer gave the information out, so I am going to copy and paste it here just using bold on the important info for you, check below for scans from the new issue of Game Informer that were not featured in the thread.

I just got my latest GameInformer and its cover feature is Resistance 2!!!!!!

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


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 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]

That was awesomesauce. Reading that took a game that I have played, the original Resistance, which I found to be completely generic and boring in every shape and form, and made me excited about its sequel. If anything, Resistance 2 will be raising the bar for FPS. All right, now for the scans, thanks to
