PS3 shooter exclusive Resistance 3 is about the end of humanity at the hands of vicious alien invaders. So it's pretty bleak. And this trailer for the game does a fine job of communicating that bleakness. There's haunting piano keys and a gravelly voice over-man speaking with soft desperation. There's a colourless world and overcast skies. There's lots of explosions and honking great big alien mech things. In fact, it pretty much has everything you'd expect from a Resistance 3 trailer. Check it:
It really reminds us of joyless post-apocalyptic flick The Road. But with aliens instead of people-eating locals. And probably a happier ending. We hope so anyway. We'll find out in September.
