Resistance 2: The Latest Trailer

James Stevenson's Avatar + Posted by James Stevenson on Oct 17, 2008 // Community Lead, Insomniac Games

Hey everyone! Hope you enjoyed the blitz of new info, impressions, screens and footage from Resistance 2 in the past couple of weeks. We’re hoping to continue that today, with the release of our latest trailer for the game.

As development on the game is wrapping up in here in Burbank, and the last few bugs are hunted down and squashed, we wanted to make an announcement we’re very excited about. Since Resistance: Fall of Man, one of the biggest feature requests for the game was that we implemented split-screen online play. We are happy to announce that Resistance 2 will feature 2-player split-screen play for both competitive play as well as our 8-player online co-op campaign! Now you won’t have to stop leveling up your medic just because your friend is over!

R2 - Canted Hybrid R2 - Ship Hale Chamber

In addition – we recently announced the contents of our collector’s edition. Many of you wrote in asking for the bonus disc to be a Blu-Ray instead of a DVD. We can also announce that the Bonus Disc will now indeed be a Blu-Ray disc, bringing almost all of the special features to you in High-Definition.

We are excited to play you guys online during the public beta in the coming weeks, as well as when the game releases on November 4th.

If you have questions or comments, please post below. Bryan Intihar and I will be around to answer!

Thanks to the LBP delay I’m buying your game now! Congrats! Which may not make sense to some but because of LBP and fallout 3 releasing the same week I will only be buying Fallout 3…and then resistance 2.

    By the way everyone. I know I said we\’re still fixing bugs, while Greg announced yesterday we are gold (and we have been gold for several weeks).

    We are still working on a Day One patch for MP and Co-op, and working on the game servers. The public beta is helping us with these elements.

    Just wanted to make that clear!

I am offended. I am chritian and the bible says not to shoot anyone. I ask for Resistance 2 to be canceled.

More seriously, i still can’t believe LBP has been delayed over a music track.

Does the competitive part mean the 60 player online play? Splitscreen during that? :D That’s the most important feature for me!

If so R2 is COMPLETE, and Insomniac are gods.

That was an awesome trailer by the way. Damn too many shooters coming out this fall. I kind of want socom, but it’s not working too well so no on that, I am getting R2, and I want gears of war 2. Hmmm, guess I can wait till christmas break to play gears.

All I can ask you, is how do you plan to top this? lol

Hi James,

I read a few months back that Resistance 2 would have some sort of Home space or Home association. Is this still the case and can we expect an announcement soon? Or is it a straight “no comment”? :p

+ nmc75 on October 17th, 2008 at 12:41 pm said:

Cool.. but one thing irks me a little about R2 so far.. Nathan Hale and his crew sure act like they aren’t from the 1950’s… check out their military, comm./gear and the way they speak to each other, seems very contemporary and modern.

    Remember, alternate history. The Chimeran technology appearing in our world in the earlier part of the century has somewhat accelerated the development. Even then, most of the technology is still analog in nature.

I can not wait for this game! My girlfriend and I are huge fans and we’ve been speculating on R2 since completing the first one. Unfortunetly the wait is about to get harder due to me avoiding trailers and news from here on out. I don’t want any more spoilers.

Please Steven answer this

Does this statement “We are happy to announce that Resistance 2 will feature 2-player split-screen play for both competitive play” mean that it will have splitscreen co-op like Resistance Fall of Man campaign? going through the single player campaign but with 2 players?

@20(nmc75), the game takes place in a different world, a parallel universe of sorts. A modified version of history.
@23(4n4rchy), I’ve yet to have seen a Qore episode that simply lets you download betas from that menu, you are going to be e-mailed a beta key to your Primary Account’s e-mail address, assuming you qualify.
