John already shared
the Spike TC VGA trailer for Insomniac’s Resistance 3
earlier this week, but there has also been a flood of information about the game alongside that footage. First off, Insomniac has announced that the game will ship exclusively for the PlayStation 3 on September 6, 2011 at the end of the trailer that John shared. This sets a firm date for those excited to continue Earth’s battle against the Chimera.
The Official PlayStation Blog
recently featured a posting from Insomniac’s creative director, Marcus Smith which shed quite a bit of light on the story of the game. Be warned... if you have not played through Resistance 2, there are spoliers to be had in the following paragraph:
Resistance 3 will put players in the role of Joseph Capelli, who killed Nathan Hale at the conclusion of the last game. After being dishonorably discharged from his military service, Capelli takes up a life of hiding with his family in Haven, Oklahoma. After spending a couple of years hiding out, he is approached by Dr. Malikov with an idea that could possibly deliver the fatal death blow to the Chimera. This presents and opportunity that Capelli just cannot turn down and he embarks on a journey across the Us to New York City to execute their plan.
Insomniac has also released a couple of new screenshots and concept art from the game through its official Facebook page
