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.

Let’s see… I have Qore.
Now… it’s currently 3:10 AM EST and I’m about to go to bed.
I check my E-Mail, and nothing about the beta code.
Delay? Didn’t you already punch me in the face when you said you’re delaying LittleBigPlanet when you could of patched it. Now your going for a knockout? Well if you want a fight, I’ll give you a fight!

…Not really, I just wanted to continue with the fighting metaphors… lol

Hopefully I should get it tomorrow, I’ll stay the Three C’s for now. But, if I don’t have it when I wake up, it will be the three K’s…

Oh wait…

Alright Sony, this is getting a little ridiculous. As a Qore annual subscriber I thought that I would be given premier access to the beta. It is almost 3:00 PM eastern and I have yet to receive the code. I know you have been getting a lot of requests to hurry things up, but it really is time to get these codes out. My email is BokuWaSammy@gmail.com, and my PSN ID is Squamden. Thanks.

I’m [DELETED] sick of this [DELETED].
It’s currently 5:01 PM EST.
It’s the 19th right now… that means 2 days after they said I was supposed to get it…
And you know what? NOTHING!

Get your act together Sony, I really thought I would never be so upset with you guys. I HATE Microsoft and have always been a big Sony supporter… and no I’m not getting an Xbox [DELETED]… But if you guys keep this up, you’ll loose the console wars…

If you guys need people to assist you, there are MANY experienced users such as myself that can assist you guys for free.

If you need help Sony, ask!!!

IF DEVELOPERS ARE READING…

Amazing GAME! Im so happy about it! strait amazing. Can you guys possible make the weapon loadout appear only on one side of splitscreen, it annoys the other player. Also, some guns seem to have very little damage power, can you tweak them? others have mentioned both of these. Man do I wish this game was out already! oh, how many competitive maps and weapons will there be? Plasma grenades? :) :) :)

I better have it when I come home, but I know I wont. So when I get home I’m calling you guys up …

Ugh… tired… 6:50 AM EST…
Still no beta key…

I gotta go to school soon… I better have it when I come home. And I know I wont have it by then cause you guys don’t know how to do simple things.

So you’re customer support is getting a call to complain if I’m up to it…
Right now I just feel like sleeping…
*yawn*

Ugh… I’m thirsty…
