Resistance 2 Midnight Launch Event, Insomniac Community Day Details

Bryan Intihar's Avatar + Posted by Bryan Intihar on Oct 31, 2008 // Community Manager, Insomniac Games

It’s here! Well, almost. The launch of Resistance 2 is now only days away, so we hope you and your Bullseye are just about ready to go huntin’ for some Chimera. The game officially hits store shelves in North America on November 4, and to help celebrate Resistance 2’s arrival, we’ve got something extra-special planned:

Midnight Launch Event: That’s right, Resistance 2 is taking over the PlayStation Store in San Francisco’s Metreon for the night of November 3rd (and early on the 4th). In addition to being one of the first to pick up a copy of the game, attendees will be able to meet a host of Insomniacs (including Ted Price, our President and CEO, and members of the community team), receive some cool swag, get their copy of the game signed, and have their picture taken and placed on the cover of Resistance 2. Oh, and if you’re planning on purchasing the collector’s edition, you definitely want to come to this event. Trust us; your wallet will thank you for it. You can purchase the game at 12:01 am, but fans that show up a bit early can meet us and get that photo of yourself on the R2 cover.

R2 Collector's Edition

While November 4 has been etched in the minds of Resistance fans, here’s another one to mark on your calendar: November 7. That’s the date of our first-ever community day here at Insomniac. Fans will be treated to a studio tour, Resistance 2 competitive multiplayer sessions against the dev team, a panel discussion about our latest title, and other fun activities. If you are at least 17 years old and live/plan to be in the Los Angeles area on November 7, e-mail us at RSVP@insomniacgames.com for more details on the event.

Well, that’s it for now. I hope you use this weekend to get in a few extra rounds with the beta (we just extended it until Monday). See you soon on the battlefield!

@redgopher : The textures were apparently low-res to fit into the download. On their forums apparently they said the full game will use better textures.

Btw, I loved the co-op mode. As addictive as crack. Well not that I’ve tried crack, but I imagine it is a similar addiction.

I hate the cover art for the regular version. I wish both covers were the same as LE box art. To bad I don’t buy limited edition games. Now I’m not sure if I want to buy the game =(. Ya! I’m that anal…

… and if the Insomniac team ever gets a craving for real beer, real hockey, real men and women… and scared Chimerans – then feel free to hold an event up here in Canada!

I wonder it that CE is coming to Colombia… Sony really needs to intesify marketing the PS3 here, they brought it here but nobody really knew but in Malasya they did notice, after all, here are potential buyers.
