Resistance: Retribution – See Multiplayer in Action

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Feb 25, 2009 // Sr. Social Media Manager

Pretty good week for the PSP, huh?

But before you’ll get your hands on LittleBigPlanet for PSP, or Assassin’s Creed, or MotorStorm: Arctic Edge… this is one of the games that’s going to be keeping you busy – Resistance: Retribution.

We’ve talked about PSP Connect, Infected Mode, and the storyline of R:R – but multiplayer is the mode you’ll be coming back to time and again. On Monday night, SCEA and Bend Studios invited gaming media to go hands-on with R:R’s multiplayer modes for the first time, and I chatted with Lead Multiplayer Engineer Darren Chisum. Lots of gameplay video inside:

Here’s a bit more info on the various multiplayer modes:

  • Team Deathmatch: Eliminate the players on the opposing team. The team with the highest score wins.
  • Capture The Flag: Grab the opposing team’s flag and deliver it to your base to score the capture. You flag is required at your base to score.
  • Containment: Capture coolant nodes to overheat and destroy the opposing teams reactor. Controlling both coolant nodes increases the overheat time
  • Assimilation: The Cloven must eliminate the Maquis forces and assimilate them to their team. The last Maquis to be eliminated ends the round. The player with the highest individual score wins.
  • Free For All: All players are out for themselves. Eliminate the opposition and the player with the highest score wins.

Also, check out IGN’s coverage of the event here. Note: Greg Miller never played me head to head, or he’d not be so smug!

I want to know how long is the single player I am more of a fan of that over multi-player. It just is never as fun for me as a great single player.

Also with the R:R being able to use the PS3 controller will this mean going forward more PSP games will use this feature or is it just this game only. I hope not because I could see it being a huge hit if Sony was to allow more developers to use the PS3 controller with the PSP.

Also the other days news was great.

Also my other question any chance of bringing out the PSP’s in different colors by them self’s. I would gladly buy another PSP if I could get the blue one by it self.
Also the one from yesterday too my sister is not a fan of Hannah Montana and would love to get that PSP but does not want the other stuff just the pink/purple PSP.

Hey, SCE, I know this is way off topic but,

I have been sitting on the computer for one hour waiting for my class to start, and I been looking through the entire PSBlog archive… I lol’ed at the times when we were all like “where is 2.4!?!” Hahaha great times :)

Finally a return of containment from Resistance 1. Can’t tell you how much I miss those matches where you capture nodes to make the opposing teams core explode!

Will this game support Mic Chat?

Unlike Socom Ftb2 i have to press a button to talk, will R:R Have Mic Support And Are you going to be able to just talk without pressing buttons?

Thanks In Advance.

Couldn’t you have just left the option up to people making the rooms to allow DS3 or not?Please patch this ability in the future!


72

+ Techni on February 25th, 2009 at 7:18 pm said:

And please get Sony to patch the Dualshock support into the firmwares of both systems!


73

+ Techni on February 25th, 2009 at 7:21 pm said:

And until Sony adds trophies to PSP, couldn’t you guys add them via the PS3 game, and just resynch whenever you connect to the 2 games together?
