Resistance 3 announced with fantastic Old West-style trailer

Looks like Sony saved its biggest guns for last, closing out its gamescom 2010 press conference with a full – if not cryptic - trailer for Resistance 3. Evoking a wild west motif, the trailer kicked off with atmospheric live-action shots of huddled survivors, scorched lands and denim-clad cowboys - accompanied by an ominously melancholy, gospel-like rendition of Masters of War (The Staple Singers, maybe?) - before jumping to the Chimera feet and post-apocalyptic imagery. Lots of muzzle flashing in the dark, glowing chimera eyes, and screaming, all of which makes for good gameplay. Check it out immediately:

Details, like survivors, are scarce. But we do know PS3 fans can look forward to fighting the good fight on an epic scale in 2011.

    This trailer made me yearn for a zombie film set in the industrial revolution of America. I don't know why, I just think it would be really unique. Then again, now that I think about it, someone might have already done that.

    Red Dead Resistance sounds better but I really don't see the connection.

    This trailer looks awesome. If Resistance 3 has you playing as survivors a la L4D I think I might explode. Loved the first two and keep meaning to pick up retribution. If the multiplayer is a fun as it was in R2 and the story ties up some loose ends I'll be a happy penguin

    I think im in teh minority that didnt think the second one was crap. I enjoyed it. this one could really be great though, which is a shame because isnt this the last in teh trilogy? is Resistence a trilogy?

    I'm sensing 4 Player co-op in this one

    Really cool trailer! Insomniac really improved the atmosphere and tone with Resistance 2, but they forgot how to tell the story on the way. Terrible pacing, important story points being left to cryptic banter, and a "really, I just spent hours of my life leading up to that?" ending… those are the things that Insomniac needs to fix with Resistance 3. Keep the tone of Resistance 2, but bring back the narrator from Fall of Man, or else find a more intuitive way to tell the story.

    almost reminds me of Left 4 Dead

    I totally hope you play as a band of hobos in this!

    this more than makes up for the shitty ratchet co-op party game.

    Whatever happened to releasing a game trailer with actual game play footage?
  • Gameguy94 - August 17, 2010 8:45 p.m.

    I'm trying not to get my hopes up for this game after how terrible Resistance 2 was, but I'll try to remain positive.
