In the latest issue of GameInformer they have exclusive screen shots of the game plus tons of information. It wasn't long untill they hit the internet. The biggest news about the game will feature 60 players online and will be released in Fall.

RESISTANCE 2

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

I'm READING FAST!

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 myresistance.net 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]


RELEASE: FALL 2008

    Wuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut?

    Wow I didn't really think Insomniac could one-up what Resistance did...but these guys just *bleep*ing blew me away with this kind of hype. Glad to see Hale's back...though I see he's losing touch with his humanity.

    YES!

    Although the first Resistence was kinda average in terms of everything, I'm REALLY looking forward to this one. Looks amazing.

    Well, I knew they'd do even better this time, but I expected maybe half this coolness factor >_>

    And nice detailing in the screens Yeah, good thing I got a HD-TV now ^_~ But Chimera are even uglier this time around...a bit smoother looking too 0_o

    I thought 40 player was hectic. 60 might take a bit of getting used to.

    Anyway, the graphics have got a nice polish. I see there's now dynamic lighting and the sorts.

    Do they know that edit 13 is put up there twice? xD

    Some nice details, I especially like the MP campaign...game is quite huge, looks like it's taking advantage of the space available to them on Blu-Ray. :S

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

    That's something I'd love to see with screenshot/video comparisons. And I'm going to have to steal my friend's Game Informer this month, simply because that cover is pure *bleep*ing awesomeness. I want.

    I am really excited for this. Sounds awesome. But release date fall 2008. Thats just when LBP and Killzone 2 will most likely come out. I don't want another fall 2007 of gaming. Were there are to many good games coming out in the same time and don't give me enough time to play them.

    Anyways. See the fifth screenshot. Those chimera are running fast. Thats freaking awesome.

      I doubt it, insomniac hasn't delayed any of their ps3 titles so far.

    This is definitely one of the PS3's '08 Big Hits. If they kept true to Resistance's formula and improved on it, I can see some great things for this game.

    The graphics are beautiful, the online sounds unprecidented for a console game (have yet to hear of a 360 game with 60-player online frag-fests), and it's altogether a firecracker just waiting to explode its awesomeness in all directions! Plus, this game has aerial vehicles, too!

    @Linkin Park Fan - Uhhh, Little Big Planet (If that is what you're talking about) is supposed to be out even before HOME (so early 08, in other words, soon) >_>

    Yeah, I don't think it will be delayed either

    A seriously killer game...will probably get PS3 game of the year for 08, if not Game of the Year across all consoles >_> Unless FFXIII and Versus XIII see a Fall 08 release date >_>

    60 players online, eh? Personally, I think that's a bit much, but if the servers can handle it, then let em' go for it.

      One wonders...would they go the way of warhawk, and use PS3s as servers? You know, for the processing power and bandwidth yes?

        I dunno...I remember doing 40-man DMs in R and it ran as smooth as can be. I shit you not, how many people have done a 40-man *bleep* fest in Nottingham?
