Free Resistance 2 Multiplayer Skins

Bryan Intihar's Avatar + Posted by Bryan Intihar on May 28, 2009 // Community Manager, Insomniac Games

Remember these guys?

Dr. Malikov and The Grims didn’t just have a part in Resistance 2’s campaign—you could also assume the role of these characters on the game’s competitive multiplayer battlefields. Well, that’s if you pre-ordered R2 at select U.S. retailers and received one of the bonus multiplayer skins.

Over the last few months we’ve received a number of e-mails from Resistance fans here and around the globe requesting these exclusive skins. So starting today both will be available for download through the PlayStation Store for free (releasing on June 11 in Europe)!

And speaking of adding to your Resistance collection, we’ve also seen quite a few franchise-related items come out since R2’s release. Here’s a quick refresher for you:

  • The comic book series: Wildstorm (a division of DC Comics) has published a six-part miniseries that revealed all-new details about the Resistance universe, which included an in-depth look at the Sentinels and touched upon aspects of the Retribution storyline. Issue #6 just hit store shelves last week.
  • The novel: Ever wonder what exactly happened during the two-year gap that separates the first two levels of R2? Acclaimed science-fiction author William Dietz tells that story in Resistance: The Gathering Storm, which is available now.
  • The t-shirt: With the weather starting to heat up, here’s the perfect addition to your gaming wardrobe. You can find this t-shirt at your local Hot Topic and its online store.

More is also on the way, including Resistance action figures from DC Unlimited. Lt. Nathan Hale, the Ravager, and other characters from the franchise will be available this September.

Cool skins especially since I don’t think outside the US you could get them before by pre-ordering, but I’m not sure. Either way thanks for those but what I really want is more co-op maps.

Resistance 1 >>>>>>>>>> Resistance 2.
Completed Resistance1 around 7 times (few times in co-op) and I was *making myself* go through Res2, it was painfully bad.

I couldn’t believe how much Res2 changed (for the worse).

Stick to your own guns next time Insomniac and please balance/ pace your games better.

For lessons on balancing and pacing: Please ask help from Sucker Punch.

THE STORE UPDATES ARE ESSENTIALLY BECOMING FRIDAY UPDATES. By the time you download your demos and stuff, you have to go to bed and wait to play them after work on Friday!

Um.. fellas? I dont think Bryan Intihar from INSOMNIAC FREAKIN’ GAMES is going to be updating the PlayStation Store.

Why don’t you try posting in a more relevant thread? Or maybe not at all?

why is the update taking so long did MS take over Sony


61

+ Zombie__Assassin on May 28th, 2009 at 5:25 pm said:

Please quit your whining about updating the store. Just pretend in your own little mind that the store updates on friday morning. That way you won’t have to complain. Oh wait, sorry I forgot that is all people know how to do online, is whine and complain.

Oh yeah, great news on the free stuff, thanks guys.

No Store Update yet!!!!

+ Poacher619 on May 28th, 2009 at 5:37 pm said:

Everyone has the right to complain just like you have the right to complain that others should stop complaining.

If no one complained most of the planet would be slaves.

Wait….doh!

+ SilverPR on May 28th, 2009 at 5:40 pm said:

I’m not complaining about the PSN store…… I’m just playing along with the others that are compalining…. anyway I’m gonna go to sleep soon. Long and “stress relief” day for me… ah yeah :) check before I sleep, if there’s something worth download just click it,and let my console shutdown after download. Sony made a great idea with that featured for the early day people :)

+ Anti-Steven on May 28th, 2009 at 5:40 pm said:

I like the shirt, but I think these last couple of post so close to the update are because they knew it would be late.


68

+ Sekoku on May 28th, 2009 at 5:51 pm said:

Well, that’d be cool to get an all if… you know… SONY UPDATED THE FREAKING STORE AT A SET-TIME EVERY DAMN WEEK?

Microsoft does it at 5AM Wednesday. Nintendo does it as well. Why can’t Sony sit on a damn time and make everyone happy?

+ PSN_Tokeio on May 28th, 2009 at 6:30 pm said:

Pretty pathetic that we have to wait for a single day each week to get a store update. And then that day comes and it’s 6:30PM PST yet there is no update.

Epic Fail. Get your **** together Sony. The PS3 as a new console isn’t an excuse anymore.


89

+ zombie_56 on May 28th, 2009 at 6:31 pm said:

maybe sonys delaying the update to 1. give us more content 2. set another day of the week to set the update at

+ INTVGene on May 28th, 2009 at 6:33 pm said:

Whatever the reason the store is or isn’t coming, this is a TERRIBLE way to communicate to your customers.

Cost of apology = $0

read #79 thats why its taking so long


92

+ Wyrm– on May 28th, 2009 at 6:35 pm said:

I appreciate the skins but I gotta say, I’d be PISSED if I had an ‘exclusive’ item and then get it put up for everyone to get free… That said, I’m totally downloading the grim skin. Imagine if all 30 people on a chimera team wore the skin… It would be awesome.

+ etur0 on May 28th, 2009 at 6:36 pm said:

the store should have been updated like 2hours ago what is taking so long
