Resistance 3 Box Art, Logos Revealed

James Stevenson's Avatar Posted by on May 18, 2011 // Community Lead, Insomniac Games

Today we’re proud to reveal the Resistance 3 box art that you can hold in your hands when the game hits store shelves on September 6th. You should recognize right away that this graphic version of the Chimeran Skull with the New York skyline depicted as its teeth, as well as the stylized version of the Resistance franchise logo, isn’t your typical “rendered hero” box art. To create this new look, we partnered with Olly Moss, a talented British artist, to create a bold vision of the Resistance 3 box art for both the North American and European territories.

Resistance 3 box art

The Resistance team worked closely with Olly to share our vision for the Chimera-occupied 1957, and Joesph Capelli’s journey across the destroyed USA to his destination, New York City. You’ll see this in the alternate version of the art below, which shows Capelli walking towards the NYC skyline.

Resistance 3: Capelli Version

We wanted Olly’s work to reflect that in Resistance 3, YOU are the Resistance. Resistance 3 isn’t a military shooter, as the United States Army and SRPA have been destroyed. Instead, Resistance 3 is about the remnants of humanity finding any way possible to survive in a brutal world.

Resistance 3: Skull and Guns

This work coincides with Olly’s first art show in Hollywood at the Gallery 1988 (which runs until May 20th, if you’re in the LA-area). We’re excited about the new look of the box art and expect to see additional Resistance 3 art by Olly throughout the campaign. You can find out more info about Olly, and see more of his fantastic art, by checking out www.ollymoss.com.

Resistance 3 Stamp Black

You may have also heard that we will be bringing exclusive early access to a nearly half-hour single-player demo straight to your PS3 on June 14th! The demo will be included on specially-marked Blu-Ray copies of the Sony Pictures sci-fi action thriller Battle: Los Angeles (which you may recall from the now memorable Resistance 3 billboard spotted on a Sony film set). The demo level is the entire boat ride sequence of the game, as Joseph Capelli and Dr. Malikov discover a flooded town infested with Chimera. We hope you’ll enjoy the small taste of atmosphere, environmental storytelling and exciting action sequences you’ll see in the final version of Resistance 3 on September 6th.

As we lead up to E3 and the game’s launch, there’s still more news to come, so keep it tuned to our Twitter feed, Facebook and sign up to Join the Resistance for all the latest updates on Resistance 3.

I’m sorry but as a box art cover that is ugly….really ugly. Maybe someone there should take marketing 101. No joke that is the worst box art this gen. I can’t believe how bad it looks. This should be the place holder box art. Final word to sum it up ew.

Very stylish. I’m impressed!


+ Lethal_Visionz on May 18th, 2011 at 10:12 am said:

not very impressive, i couldve down that and probably for alot cheaper….very basic cover, looks “ok” but wont jump out on store shelves as it looks like a advertisement rather then actual final boxart.


+ TallCrowe on May 18th, 2011 at 10:12 am said:

Well that is a logo, that’s for sure.


+ LUGIEZ on May 18th, 2011 at 10:13 am said:

+ jadjohnny on May 18th, 2011 at 10:23 am said:

I like it!!!!


+ Wolokowoh on May 18th, 2011 at 10:25 am said:

Wow that’s actually pretty bad. I was thinking it should more like the first game’s box art. Heavy Rain had a way better box art than this and a lot of people criticized the crap out of it. What does this box art tell us? It has a New York level. From the box art I wouldn’t think it’d be a really serious possibly depressing game, but it’s supposed to be the end of days for mankind just fighting for survival against insurmountable odds. At least Heavy Rain had the four characters with dramatic looks on their face signifying the type of story, a guy with a gun signifying it has some action in it, a blood stained piece of origami hinting at story elements and a puddle and wet people coupled with the title means there’s rain is somehow important in the game. Even the one with just the origami and rain is supposed to just look mysterious representing the main theme the game has. This box art doesn’t tell you anything about the game besides aliens and NYC and definitely doesn’t do the game any justice.

Psn isn’t completely up and we get box art………intresting. how ’bout an update on the network or store?


+ korgon117 on May 18th, 2011 at 10:28 am said:

Hmm, not really feeling the box art very much, very bland. I mean I know the atmosphere is bland and all but this doesn’t look too good. Aw well though, I still plan on picking up the game anyway if I can!


+ BTK88 on May 18th, 2011 at 10:29 am said:

I like this cover


+ Powie on May 18th, 2011 at 10:30 am said:

Would make a great template for cutting this years pumpkin for Halloween.


+ heamcastro on May 18th, 2011 at 10:36 am said:

I’m SO waiting for this game!!!


+ JDbundyUIK on May 18th, 2011 at 10:37 am said:

Resistance never really felt “next gen”. its very stiff, and when something dies it’s just stuck to the ground like it was bolted there. just doesn’t feel right. the box art looks plain enough that i dont think it’ll stand out, but…. hey. here’s hoping they made a better quality game.

Hey James, please listen to this suggestion.

Can you please make all of the logos on the cover peel off stickers? Either that or some kind of cardboard or paper that we can just slip off after we’ve bought the game (for example the Taxi Driver blu-ray). I think people would really appreciate that. Also the alternate version of the art which shows Capelli walking towards the NYC skyline is pretty rad. Would it be possible to make it just an alternate cover for the regular edition rather than the collector’s edition that I’m assuming is coming. Thanks.

    I wish we could, but it’s not something that can happen.

    Maybe we can do somnething with the reverse inlay being clean


+ hush404 on May 18th, 2011 at 10:56 am said:

That’s a horrible looking box art.


+ supercubanito on May 18th, 2011 at 11:02 am said:

i think you should make a cover with pics from in the game, like the guy blasting the ememy or somthing hardcore with good graphics. that looks like something i can do with color pencils,just being honest and of the topic anything on the ps store yet ,or if they will consider a bigger game list for download,cuz ah i have played those games already.i need an update on that plz.,
