Free Resistance 2, Fall Of Man Content Hits PSN Today

Resistance 2 is easily one of the year's best, but if you think Insomniac is taking a well-deserved break after launching the game in early November, think again. The downloadable content is on the way!

According to a recent post made over at the official PlayStation blog by Insomniac community manager Bryan Intihar, the team is preparing a series of updates and patches for R2, plus more additions to MyResistance.net. What you see here is one of the new PS3 Themes they'll have ready for you - the blog shows more - so check out the multiple wallpapers like "Man vs. Chimera" today on the PlayStation Store. They're also not neglecting R2's predecessor, as the map packs for Resistance: Fall of Man are now free on the Store, which means you no longer have any excuse for passing on them. As of today, both available map packs are absolutely free, and for other free stuff, you can also download a new R2 trailer, which apparently is Intihar's favorite. With its awesome single-player campaign and unparalleled 60-player online competitive mode (plus 8-player co-op mode), Resistance 2 is a must for any PS3 owner, and with extra content on the way, it's even more alluring.

We'll let you know when Insomniac plans to release the new patch for the game; we get the feeling it'll be some time early next month, though. You know there's plenty more that can be done, and that's exactly what DLC is for!

Hopefully they will let multiple accounts on the game when playing splitscreen. That and maybe they will implement more weapons or something.

This game was the shizzle. I just wish it would move a tad faster like Cod but then again one of the perks would be nullified if so. Loved the game...

i hope insomniac realizes what a big mistake changing the weapon system was and gives it back..
2 weapons at a time is not an option that was my biggest grief with call of duty, black,halo,etc

I prefer the 2 weapon system, I hope they keep it. It kept me thinking throughout the game on what I needed next and not on what ammo I was low on from other guns. It also keeps that little bit of realism there that gives it it's own league, away from the supreme realism of CoD, but also from that of the almost arcade style of Fall of Man. Keep it :)

I'm with ya, I prefer having 2 weapons over 10 or so anyday. Besides, I thought a lot of the guns in RFoM could have been better. They seemed to be a little too random and kinda cheesy at the same time lol.

I don't think it's possible to use 2 weapons in the first (unless you play on easy maybe) because a) there were more enemies and therefore b) it was more difficult. I've never tried it so I don't know. That's why I figured in R2, if you're only given 2 weapons, then the game would have to be much easier, which it is.

I think it would've made the game a lil easier if we could use 10 friggin weapons at will. I like the bit of strategy that comes with the two weapon system. And its not like you cant pick another up...I just HATE spending $60 for an easy game. I play all my stuff on the highest settings.

Clocked this the weekend just past and traded it in today. Myself and my mate were both not overly that impressed with Resistance 2, we thought it was good yeah but not a must keep, he's traded it in too. I could have kept it and played online with it.

Now before anyone says it got 9.5 or whatever it got all over the place. Just becuase a game gets high markings does not mean it is going to appeal to everyone. Now myself and my mate have decided that it was a good game yeah, but he pointed out to me about the pixelated water, maybe this can be fixed in a patch. I didnt look to see if the water was pixelated.

I did enjoy playing it but thought after completing it all the hype, plus the end boss Datalist or whatever the name of the big thing with tentacles was I found too easy and killed the thing on the first try.

Now im not saying Ben's review was bad it was a damn good review and made me want to get the game even more, plus I was buying it anyway after playing the first one but I dunno once I had completed it I felt something like is that it, maybe it is because they have left me wanting more ie the 3rd one.

I will get the 3rd one and hopefully I wont feel like this next time.

Yeah I agree. I think the only thing left for me in FPSs are that they need to stand out from the pack in order to get my attention.

In reality, R2 didn't really bring anything new to the table. While it was a fun and entertaining experience, I can't see myself playing online competitive any longer. I know for a fact, though, that I will be playing coop for awhile, due to it being 'new' for consoles.

And I've played so many FPSs that now I'm beginning to become more critical and picky when it comes to the genre. This goes for CoD, Halo, and Unreal as well.

That being said, I really hope K2 is enough to get me back in. I've heard so many great things about it, so who knows.
