OPM UK Reveals More Resistance 2 Details

If it's Resistance 2-related, we're immediately interested, plain and simple. And thanks to the latest UK edition of the Official PlayStation Magazine, a bunch of new details have just hit the gaming public!

First off, it seems the Chimera will be targeting the San Francisco Bridge and other recognizable American landmarks during their U.S. siege. But first, Captain Nathan Hale will continue where the original story left off, and he'll find himself in Iceland, home of the SRPA (Special Projects Research Administration). There, he will find he is not alone...other humans have also been infected with the Chimera DNA and have obtained mutant healing and even telepathic abilities. Some of these now-special humans have come together to form the Sentinels; a task force designed specifically to hunt down the Chimera. Here's a summarized look at the other info that popped up in the feature article:

  • There will be three character classes for co-op play: Soldier, Medic, and Special-Ops. Each will collect experience to improve their own special set of skills.
  • One of the new weapons is called the Splitter, which is basically a super-powerful minigun.
  • Killing the aliens has a benefit- the more you kill, the more you can "charge up" your abilities. We're not quite sure how this will work just yet, but it certainly sounds cool.
  • The new Stalker has been redesigned and given new functionality.
  • Huge, fully dynamic bosses that have to be taken down differently than standard enemies.

If you're not psyched for Resistance 2 yet, you don't have a pulse. As soon as we stumble across more info, we'll be sure to let you know.

Sorry, I couldn't help but post again!!

I real like the more bosses part. The last one had very few, other than the hundreds of scorpions at the same time. Hopefully more twenty-feet eight-legged six-eyed flying creatures.

P.S. Anybody need anything just pm me, I'm your friend ;-)

For some reason none of this really interested me. My pesimistic outlook just tells me that if they poorly implement these "powers" that the game could seriously suffer.
I might just be reading into it too much. The more bosses thing does sound tight.
