Resistance 3's Brutality Pack is available now

Sony and Insomniac have released new DLC for Resistance 3 in the form of the Brutality Pack. $3.99 will get you a new survival mode with online or local co-op, the ability to use the Sledgehammer in all game modes, and a new skin and theme. The pack also features music by sludge-metal gods Mastodon, who surprisingly haven't been scoring Resistance all along. But it's such a good fit!

The new tunes you'll hear while playing through the Brutality Pack's content are taken from Mastodon's latest album, The Hunter, together with a couple of instrumental versions of tracks from their previous release Blood Mountain. Really, if you release a concept album about the discovery of a Crystal Skull (like Blood Mountain), your best-case scenario is probably that that album might one day make it into an alternate-history game about aliens fighting World War 2. So, high-fives all round at Mastodon HQ, no doubt.


Here's the trailer for the Brutality Pack, set to Mastodon's recent single Spectrelight. The pack is $3.99 and available now on the PlayStation Store.

    Survival mode? Awesome. Plus Mastodon? More awesome. And a sledgehammer perfect for smashing faces.

    Wish I had a ps3 and this right about now; co-op survival modes always sell me on the game (which was why I wanted Uncharted 2 so badly as well).

    Me too, if I had a PS3 I would get this game, Uncharted, and Infamous. Actually I will gewt this system, the only stopping me is the fact that a new system may be coming out soon.

    fuck, mastodon is my favorite band and resistance games were fun, but i don't have a ps3 currently. this looks really cool though.

    Underrated and quite good game. As much as I love Insomniac, I don't do DLC. I definitely don't do DLC with mediocre metal.

    Were you referring to Mastodon, or Metal as a whole? Because neither would be true.

    Mastadon. The music's decent but I can't stand the vocals. I can't pinpoint what I dislike about the vocals, they just seem to rub me the wrong way. Which is odd, since I can listen to about any type of metal.

    Maybe because the majority of Metal bands only use one singer whereas 3 out of the 4 band members in Mastodon sing. I love the variety and commend them for it.
