Resistance 2 beta begins… today!

Greg Phillips's Avatar + Posted by Greg Phillips on Oct 16, 2008 // Producer, SCEA

Heya, it’s been a while since I’ve been seen around these parts as James Stevenson, Bryan Intihar and the others at Insomniac have been doing most of the Resistance 2 posting as of late. Along with my return to the blog, I bring a few announcements with regards to R2:

  • Today, October 16th, the public beta for Resistance 2 will begin in North America. The beta will offer gamers a glimpse at Resistance 2’s online competitive and co-op modes ahead of the game’s launch on November 4th. We will be admitting players in two waves: a Premiere wave which includes those that pre-ordered at GameStop, individuals who subscribed to QORE for one year and/or bought the episode featuring Resistance 2 and a recent contest from GamePro.com. Those of you in the Premiere wave should be receiving an email with a registration code between now and tomorrow afternoon. A second wave is starting in the middle of next week, and you apply to be a part of it by going to beta.myresistance.net once the site goes live (later tonight). For those of you across the pond in Europe, the public beta will also begin next week.
  • The Beta will include competitive maps from three locations in the game. These maps include 60-, 40-, and 20-player maps from Orick, 40- and 20-player maps from Chicago, and the 10-Player map Sub Docks (Bay Area). New modes Skirmish and Core control will be supported, along with Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch. The co-op portion of the beta will focused on Orick, and will support randomization of your play-path. Both co-op and competitive will support matchmaking and class/character progression up to level 10. This will allow unlocking of new equipment, upgrades and berserks for character customization.
  • Speaking of beta.myresistance.net, the beta version of our new community site goes live tonight as well. Customizable leader boards/user profiles, individual blogs and ‘ticker’ that provides players with up to minute information of happenings on the site are just some of the features the beta site has to offer. Leading into the November 4th North American launch of the game (and the months to follow), we’ll be adding several more features that will make MyResistance.net the destination for all Resistance fans.
  • And, finally, Resistance 2 has gone gold. As a special treat, the below image gives all of you PlayStation Blog readers an idea on just how big just the online coop campaign mode is :)

That’s all for now. Keep your eyes open for more R2 announcements as we lead into launch. If you have any questions, write them in the comments sections and I’ll do my best to answer them.

RealScatman, I got 4 – 4 -4, and I’ve been getting the error that others have been getting:

“The code you entered may not be correct or may no longer be valid. Please check your entries.”

It’s just the gamestop codes, right?

Greg Phillips, you have been most helpful. I’m not getting a code, but that’s okay, it’s understandable. At least I don’t have to be in limbo about it now.

Well, I hate to say this, but I purchased a YEAR subscription to Qore and I don’t have my beta code. I know I just posted, but I want to know why it is my responsibility to post on the R2 site to say I didn’t get one?

PSN ID: Optimus84

Hope you can help me out since I did subscribe to Qore to get premier acces.

Works now for me as well. Thanks all who worked to resolve the issue.


333

+ Elatis on October 17th, 2008 at 6:33 pm said:

Guess I’m another Qore premium subscriber from North America who hasn’t received a code.

This along with the LBP delay is very frustrating.

+ mclaren777 on October 17th, 2008 at 6:45 pm said:

Cliff notes version: I’m a Qore subscriber who hasn’t received his access code yet.

Longer version: I’ve been an annual Qore subscriber since the beginning and I also signed up for the Resistance 2 beta separately on Insomniac’s site, yet I still haven’t received my code yet. I know you’re probably getting swamped with similar tales but I’m just a little concerned now because the exact same thing happened with the SOCOM beta (after two weeks of waiting I finally had to e-mail Sony to get my code).

So I’m just hoping that I won’t have to wait too long to finally get access to R2. ;)

I went up to Gamestop to get my preorder beta code and tried it three times with no luck. Since I didn’t get it for my yearly Qore subscription I figured I would just use my preoder code to get in, but no luck.
