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!
