The shooter genre on consoles has exploded this generation, and we shouldn’t forget that one of the earliest successes was Resistance: Fall of Man. Undoubtedly the class of the PlayStation 3 launch, it provided a glimpse of what was to come; of what developers could do with Sony’s powerful new hardware. The second was a mixed bag in the eyes of the fans (although we loved it) and the third has been confirmed for a September 6, 2011 release. And considering that we have a bunch of new information, plus a hefty amount of gameplay floating about, it’s long past time we issued a formal preview. Hale is gone and Joseph Capelli is the new protagonist; he’ll face new enemies, utilize overhauled and more effective weaponry and…well, act as mankind’s savior.

First up, let’s touch on a few of the differences: new enemies will challenge us in different ways, as both alien drones and cloaking hybrids highlight the fresh list of adversaries. Sniper hybrids can take you down fast, and they’re all the more difficult to track and kill due to their annoying cloak ability. Drones will often have to be destroyed before their “masters” can be eliminated, and let’s not forget the signature feature of the franchise: mammoth bosses. Although we’ve only caught glimpses of a few, you can bet they will return in full force in this third installment. A lot of our favorite weapons will be coming back as well, but there’s the addition of the Dead Eye, which is the Chimeran sniper rifle and similar to the L23 Fareye, which fans will recognize. The difference? Dead Eye has a fun alternate fire…

The Carbine, Magnum, Bullseye, Rossmore (shotgun), and Auger will also return, and we’ve already seen them in action during recently released gameplay videos. The weapon wheel from the original Resistance is back as well; we’ll access it with the Triangle button and then make our selection with the left analog, as we did before. Perhaps the most important feature pertaining to the weaponry is that every firearm will have two upgrade paths; one for primary fire and one for the alternate fire. Along with the aforementioned familiar names, Insomniac says we can expect new additions to our hefty arsenal, and that’s always good news. One last change involves the health- it will no longer restore when you take cover.

See, Hale was infected, which gave him those restorative powers, but Capelli doesn't seem to have that skill, so he’ll have to hunt for health packs when he’s injured. This might alter the style of gameplay just a tad, as we imagine a slightly more cautious approach will be required when facing stiff odds. Plus, with all those weapons, we might have to focus on a few of our favorites and upgrade the crap out of them. The story will also be an important part of this production, as it was in the past two entries; we’ll be interested to see how everything plays out in the post-apocalyptic U.S. Resistance 3 looks fantastic and perhaps the launch date will be beneficial, as it doesn’t have to butt heads with either this year’s Call of Duty or Battlefield 3, both of which are expected in November.

But regardless of the release date, we know one thing to be true: we really, really want it.

yeah but the story co-op won't be randomly generated maps, with 8 players and an rpg leveling system that makes you come back constantly. Plus it was the only online game that I have ever played where you had to work as a team to win. And each of the three classes was unique in how they played and all three were required to get through a level. And this is the only game online where the majority of players had a mike and actually used them. So there is no way they will be able to put that into the story co-op and that is why I am sad

I thought the same thing. The Sentinels were supposedly humans that were immune, or resistant to the Chimera virus. Although they didn't need to be a part of Project Abraham. Only Hale and Shepard were a part of that. Still... at least it means that it'll require the hunting of health packs. The regen in the second annoyed me.

Capelli was a Sentinel and also was infected. All Sentinels were soldiers exposed to the Chimeran Virus that gave them super strength and ability to regenerate health. They all got inhibitor treatments...

I love the idea of med packs..but that is a huge hole in the Resistance story if they're trying to say he's not infected..

Having trouble sleeping, and I've been thinking about this (among other things): Apparently, in this third game, Malikov has discovered a cure for the Chimeran virus, and the whole road trip between him and Capelli is to create it or distribute it or something. Theoretically, it makes it possible that Malikov gives Capelli a dose of that anti-virus and cures him at the beginning of the game to gain his trust and show that he's not BSing.

How likely is that?

So much joyment grew in my insides as I read this! I was going to get inFAMOUS over this BUT not anymore!!! The gameplay plus preview reconsidered my purchase!!! Fall Of Man was easily one of my 1st games I played on Ps3! It was A GREAT GAME & STILL IS! Cant wait.
Unlike Zipper with their major over fu**ing haul, Insomniac Upgrades and adds not subtracts. If you don't own a playstation 3, you better sometime soon. Maybe XBOX hold Ps3 back on multiplats, but there are SOOOOOOOO MANY Ps3 exclusives out there that dont & give you maximum potential. Uncharted 3 aint even out yet & it's already doing what Avatar did for movies but for games... man dont miss out, get your playstation.

That looked totally badass. I still have spent countless hours playing Resistance retribution and would solely recommend a PSP for that game alone. I loved the TPS aspect and was totally fun. The online was actually quite enjoyable as the SP campaign. Plus the PS3 cross-platform hook-up. The game had A LOT of hidden rooms and bonuses I tell you. So I can't wait for this.

While the Resistance 3 news is quite exciting... something off-topic and earth shuttering...

Eurogamer reporting that there is to be a Wii2 announcement at e3 2011...

Nintendo was reported as stating that the Wii2 will be significantly more powerful than the 360 and the PS3.

They want to regain the hardcore market!!!

Looks like my prediction was correct and has come true...

Nintendo was the Dark Horse after all!

It's logical that the Wii2 will be more powerful than even the PS3. I mean, yeah it still is cutting edge technology, sort of, but there has still been progression. It may not be leagues more powerful, but it wouldn't surprise me if it really is capable of rendering something like KZ3 at full 1080p and 60fps. Or do you think that may be a tad too hopeful?

I'll be very interested in seeing how all of this pans out, particularly with the broad market brand recognition that the Wii has managed to garner since its release.

Hey Anon, Have you ever heard of Kid Icarus, Zelda, Metroid, Starfox or Earthbound. Nintendo does still have more 'mature' franchises that can cater to the hardcore gamers. Besides, they could always follow Sony's example and come up with some new ones.

Clamedeus,
Yeah, I'm not about to make any official guesses yet, but with Ninty's desire to get the gamer faithful back on their side, I don't doubt that they're going to put their balls to the wall and create something that will appeal to the gadget freaks. Surprises still do happen in this world.

I don't think Nintendo is going to suddenly change their identity.
For over a decade they've maintained a consistency in their product offerings.
While I don't doubt that the next Wii will be a powerful system, I do doubt that we'll start seeing a large effort on their part to re-engage Microsoft and Sony head on with the kind of content that those gamers crave.
Nintendo has not been one to dump 25-55 million into their game titles. Games like Uncharted, GoW, and Killzone are Hollywood-like in presentation and production values. That just isn't Nintendo's MO. They also have a ton of catch up to do on the online side of things.
But I guess anything could happen.

Heh, I'm interested in the rumoured controller they're talking about. Apparently it has a built-in 6" touch screen and you'll be able to stream Wii2 games onto it and play without the need for a TV. I can see that being very helpful for splitscreen games (or what would otherwise be required to be splitscreen). It just seems like a really out-there concept, and probably overly expensive. I also wonder at the necessity of it. I mean, sure, Nintendo has made a name for themselves off innovative control schemes recently (DS touch screen/Wii motion controls), but implementing a touch function in a home console just seems... silly. Who knows though, it could take off in a big way. But if this is the new default controller, then what happens to the Wiimote? Will they offer an upgraded version of it? I mean, the system is supposed to be backwards compatible, so why would they simply drop support of their main method of control?

I know this isn't really the right place, but this is sounding like it may tempt me away from the PS family for a while, provided they have solid software support for it.

The upgradeable weapons sound awesome. Hopefully it plays out well... like the way it was scaled in inFamous so that you never feel overly powerful. And I'm so glad to see the return of the weapon wheel. The two-weapon loadout is good for some games, but the inventiveness of Insomniac really means that it turns into a lost opportunity. Speaking of which, I can't wait to see some of the new weapons they have to play with. I hope that they feel as fresh as the XR1 Hailstorm from the first game, or those Backlash Grenades. Better yet would be the Tapper that they cut from the second game. The concept of that was cool.
The story, I really like. I mean, it's so rare that you are left feeling as though you really are fighting a losing battle, so hopefully that hopelessness is evident in everything that you do. It was alright in R2, but I want it pushed to the next level. I just hope that the game is a decent length to really live up to what I'm hoping for. If it's yet another six-eight hour campaign, I'm going to be heartbroken.
The eradication of the regenerating health (as I mentioned above) is a definite plus. It may seem an archaic mechanic, but I like the strategy that you have to employ in choosing when to fall back and hunt. And if the AI is as good as it seems to be, it should turn into a very hairy, harrowing experience. That will be aided by the new enemy types, and the inclusion of both 'feral' and 'militarised' Chimera. That alone sounds awesome. I wonder if we'll see any more of the Cloven. And I wonder who the new leaders of the Chimera are. It was the Angels in the original, Daedalus in the second and the Chrysalid in Retribution. It's only logical that they'll have something entirely new. Can't wait to see it.
But I still can't come to grips with the thought that Hale is gone. Still makes me sad.

In case you couldn't tell, the Resistance series is one of my favourites, in spite of the fact that it's an FPS. I can't help but be overly excited about this. It really is a close call on whether I want this or Uncharted 3 more. inFamous 2 beats out both of them though.
Peace.

Oh yes, because you would be so damn courageous if the world was indeed taken over by aliens. Now, I know that it's a game, but that doesn't mean that it needs to follow the same bored cliches of overblown 'heroes'. What can't you accept that Insomniac are trying to create a 'real' character that the average person can connect with?

Seriously, it adds an emotional element to the story, and as far as I'm concerned that CAN'T be a bad thing.

So wait... You don't want to see someone trying something new from a story perspective? Look, based on what we've seen, there will still be plenty of combat scenarios, and plenty of high speed battles. One gets tired of macho men who are out to save the world because it's the 'right' thing to do, or because they're soldiers and it's their job. The emotional impact here is a GOOD thing. Why can't you see that? Instead, you complain that Capelli seems like a coward. What's wrong with seeing something different once in a while. That is what you're always crying about, isn't it? Or are you only interested in seeing different gameplay mechanics, and don't give a **it about the story?

What a bunch of BS Mrs. blank line. If anything, Capelli's more manly than any of your super-macho soldier main characters ever were.

Sure, he goes into hiding. Who wouldn't if they were PO'd that they just killed someone they thought was an excellent commander, had anger issues, and the US Army was falling apart at the seams? He did what anyone would do, and even though he basically deserted the Army, he's getting a chance at a sort of redemption by helping Malikov make his cure to the virus. Plus, when he's going on a mission to save ALL of humankind, and his family, not only is that so much less cliche than your stupid soldier stereotypes, but its quite a bit more heroic. And he's obviously doing it with a whole lot fewer F-bombs and swearing than most other "macho men" soldiers use.

In short, you obviously don't understand what constitutes a good story. If "save the world, macho men" soldier stereotypes were excellent characters, then Battle: L.A. would have gotten 4 stars from Roger Ebert.

I love this series. I'm quite fond of alternate reality fiction in general (Superman: Red Son was one the only Superman stories I liked until recently, for an added bit of nerd-flavored broth), but this one with it's subtle nods to H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds and all is spectacular.

This is definitely Day One for me. STOKED.

Wasn't Capelli a Sentinel just like Hale in R2, except that he wasn't progressing to become a full-fledged Chimera as fast as him? Up until now, I thought he was; now I'm unsure :S

Huge fan of the Resistance series as a whole. I had no gripes with the previous two and this one looks to be the best...Although taking away the online co-op still bothers me but I'll live..

One thing I will say is that this series keeps improving itself in the graphical department. Nice to watch it grow in that regard.

I've got over 60 hours in KZ3 multiplayer. It has become my second home, and when I see ANY other shooter it just looks, sounds and moves kinda old-fashioned. Luckily Insomniac specialise in fun gameplay so it'll be a D1P anyway.

What I'd most like to see is for them to somehow create camper-proof maps. The friggin campers in KZ3 are driving me insane! I imagine it's a problem with all online shooters but it's only KZ3 that I've got heavily involved with (thanks to the Move).

At least there won't be invisibility or disguises. Camper + invisibility = broken TV.

The snipers from KZ2 were fine. Heck, the players who use the Marksman like it's intended are fine. I am very proficient with the Sniper rifle, and if I can see you, you are most likely dead.

Anyways...

It's the guys in the corner with the assault rifle all the while using the Marksman class that have hurt this game.

Ive got about 30 hours in on Killzone 3 MP (would be more, but the Socom Beta sucked up all my gaming time)and I gotta agree with you, Pontiac. The corner camping Marksmen are driving me nuts. I spent several hours on the new Stahl Arms map last night and around every corner there was a Marksman with an assault rifle. Those guys never help thier team. If they used Marksman like it is intended, Ive got no problem with the class.

Yeah HighOnFire, the marksman/assault rifles have brought my playing time on KZ3 to a near standstill.

I don't really have much of a issue with the marksman/assault rifle people..I guess it's because I'm usually a tactician and I see them...

That's right guys. I should have clarified: it's the invisible corner campers I have issues with. Not the snipers.

What gets me is in Killzone is the camper in Warzone who doesnt help his team win. If hes on my team or the other, it drives me insane. You will look at these guys at the end of the game and they have only scored 500 to 1000 points and havent done anything a skilled Marksman can do to help the team, because theyre concerned about their k/d ratio. Most games Im gonna have 5000-8000 points and a crappy k/d, because you have to go after the objectives. Ok..off my soap box.....

Agree with what HighOnFire just said. I hate just people in general who want to camp and get kills and nothing else to preserve their K/D ratio.

I care less about mine personally. I want to win plain and simple. It's far more embarrassing to have your team lose 0-7 or 1-6 then a horrible K/D..

I swear if people just want to kill then go play CoD but even in CoD that ish pisses me off...

K/D's have started this whole camping thing anyway. I wish there were no such stat on team based games. If your K/D is high because you are a skilled player, then brag all you want. If you are a corner camper who is scared to actually play to keep your precious ratio from dropping, then like Slugga said, please go play COD. Killzone or Battlefield are no place for you.

Resistance 3 is going to bring back the main thing that First Person Shooters lacked till now.
Atmosphere!

My bad on the health thing; that was just a wrong assumption on my part.

No the health doesn't regenerate. He's referring to the Capeli being human as the reason why. Makes no difference I just want this game...been waiting forever it seems

Health doesn't regenerate; you need health packs. Just don't know why, exactly.

you need health packs because hale got his regenerating health as a mutation of the virus.
normally when humans turn they turn into the chimera, but hale was different he gained the regeneration power.
capeli did not though, he was turning but he got a shot in time which delayed the conversion but he did not get the mutation hale did.
if you listen to the lady at the beginning of the game she tells you that.

Hell yeah! Looking forward to this. The atmosphere and music sound just as great as ever, and I'm expecting another awesome storyline to accompany them. The only thing I'm disappointed in is the lack of the old online coop (no, I don't care about 16-player only competitive, seeing as how it seems to have a lot more content in it than both previous games), but I think I'll live. I am glad splitscreen's back, but I wish they could have put both in the game.
