Insomniac: Resistance 3, New Ratchet Announced
We all figured Insomniac would announce a new Resistance some time soon, but we weren't expecting a new Ratchet & Clank to get tossed into the mix.
The talented development team didn't show off a new game at E3 2010 for the first time in 9 years, but that's okay. We forgive them. Because today during Sony's press conference at GamesCom, Insomniac debuted their two new projects for the very first time: leading off was a new iteration of the beloved platformer franchise, called Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One. It will let up to four players explore about with Ratchet, Clank, Quark and Dr. Nefarious; the co-op aspect will highlight this particular presentation (duh) and it'll boast drop-in, drop-out support. From what was seen during the presentation, the game uses an isometric camera view that pulls back when players move apart from each other, and the combination co-op tactics are cool. All four can leap into a four-person cannon to cross big gaps, and you can even create slingshots and chains to make your platforming adventure possible.
To close the conference, Insomniac dropped the biggie- Resistance 3. The video showed a basically broken city and when everything goes dark, an alien leaps into the scene; it's clearly a Chimera. They're back and once again, it's off to save the human race from the alien invasion. Not sure yet when it'll arrive, but make sure to check Insomniac's web page for all relevant info, including that trailer and new screenshots. It doesn't appear to be working at this moment - likely a ton of people just tried to access it in the past hour - but keep trying.
Resistance 3. We're happy.
