Our favorite alternate version of 1957
has only been out for a handful of hours, but Resistance 3 has already
announced it will be adding a new multiplayer mode on October 4. The addition
is Invasion Mode, and it will be part of the Survival Pack DLC. The gametype
requires two teams to hold separate control points from the Chimera assault (or
invasion, if you will) while sharing a resource pool The mode doesn't appear in the launch
trailer, but — oh yeah — there's a launch trailer.
Aside from being much darker than
Resistance 2's often bright, over-saturated, and occasionally campy sci-fi
atmosphere, the big bullet point to be taken from this video is the Cryogun.
This gun is the 12th and final weapon. As you can tell, it freezes things —
don't get too close to those icicles, or you'll poke an eye out.
On top of the new game mode, the
Survival Pack will include four new multiplayer skins, modeled after survivors
you may come across while playing solo and costs $3.99. It's set to release the
same day a free patch will add two new maps, which will bring the map total to
fourteen and give those of us without four bucks something to be happy about
