Resistance 2 Official! 60 Players Online!
Just as I had predicted, the flow of Resistance 2 revelations was bound to arrive shortly after it was discovered that Sony had registered the title as a trademark. Last week, blogger Surfer Girl leaked an early development screenshot that showed a barren, textureless environment from Resistance 2. Now, it's all become official and Resistance 2 is finally real.
In the February issue of Game Informer, which is hitting shelves and subscribers now, Insomniac exclusively reveals their game with plenty of screenshots to boot. The most notable features that Insomniac has revealed are bound to make Resistance 2 one of the best, if not the best, multiplayer first-person shooters of all time. And those two traits are: 8-player co-operative campaign gameplay, and 60-man multiplayer matches!
You are reading that correctly, there are no typos there: that's 60 players simultaneously in one environment. That's 20 more than what the original had! Most FPS titles don't even offer 20 to begin with, and yet, Resistance 2's multiplayer capacity has been bumped by that much. Stay posted, because we will do our best to bring you more Resistance 2 details and media.
