Resistance 3 Dev Diary: Cold New World

James Stevenson's Avatar + Posted by James Stevenson on Jun 14, 2011 // Community Lead, Insomniac Games

We hope that you have enjoyed all of the recent Resistance 3 content that has been coming your way over the last few weeks. From the E3 stage demo in tattered St. Louis, to the new multiplayer footage from our Wales Seaside and Colombia Trainyard maps, to cover art created by designer Olly Moss, and various retailer pre-order bonuses, it’s been an exciting time for us to share so many cool parts of the Resistance 3 experience coming to you on 09.06.11.

If you’ve been dying to get a taste of Resistance 3 for yourself – you can do so today, by grabbing a copy of the specially marked single-disc Battle: Los Angeles Blu-ray that contains a nearly 30-minute slice of Resistance 3 – the harrowing boat ride on the Mississippi River.

Already grabbed Battle: LA, you say? That’s not all we have for today! Earlier this year, the PlayStation.Blog team approached us about creating its first-ever developer diary series, focusing on various elements of Resistance 3. After discussing it with them and the Resistance team at Sony, we were all really excited to collaborate on this project. The dev diaries will cover a range of topics across the game, and will roll out as we get closer to Resistance 3’s launch date.

They are also special, as they were the first videos to be shot in the Resistance 3 war-room that some of you may have heard us talk about in various interviews. While we’ve taken special care to ensure that the backgrounds aren’t legible, you can get an idea of the main room at Insomniac that lays out the entire R3 single-player campaign experience, a room any person at the company can go to and get an up-to-date picture of what will be happening at any moment in the game.

Everyone at Insomniac is really stoked to see this one turn out the way it has. We hope you enjoy it, and will look forward to the other videos in the series that will be rolling out this summer.

As always, stay tuned to our Facebook and Twitter feeds for all of the latest news about Resistance 3. And if you have questions about everything we showed at E3, the Battle: LA demo, the dev diary, or what I’m eating from the Insomniac kitchen right now, post below and I’ll do my best to answer!

    That’d be great! Though the other dev diary videos are still being worked on, so they wouldn’t be able to make the disc.

    In terms of CE, it’s not fully-up to Insomniac. SCEA and SCEE make their own decisions on that based on their territories, needs, marketing, and retailers. If it was purely up to Insomniac, we’d bring it to every territory, but there are many more factors than just our desire at play

@2 Super4Gogeta

NA isn’t getting a collectors edition cause SCEA said no to it, but instead went with a 3Dtv bundle. This also why SCEE get so many SEs and Steal Cases in their release. In this case, SCEA dropped the ball royally, and only prove that they don’t know what gamers want anymore.

Gamers no longer need SCEE or SCEA or even SCEJ…. we just need SCE, not multiple versions and not multiple pre-orders

One Release
One Version
One PSN

Looks better everytime you show it off. Keep up the good work guys!

On a personal note, I hope Overstrike is hugely successful for you all. Good to see a developer get to spread their wings and bring the fun to everyone. But, don’t forget us!

I think this error was related to a new video player feature we added to the front page of the blog. We’ve rolled it back and all should be OK now.

This will sell poor and be over looked again because of piss poor sony marketing, advertising. The most underrated FPS this gen. One of the best, too

Resistance is way better then killzone, one of the top FPS this gen, its a shame it gets consistently overlooked due to poor sony advertising. Say what u want about MS they stick by and advertise and market their games.

Having no special edition after R2 had one and also after showing the amazing Survival Edition in Europe is most disheartening. I understand that R2 special edition obviously didn’t sell well in the US but…man, this is horrible. I feel like just renting the US version and importing the European version…

Ah, the infamous war-room… Really love how you guys are paying so much attention to the emotional experience you want to the player to have. There are so many shooters out there which have a decent story, but the main focus of the game is to just get that “rush” of getting a kill. It’s refreshing to see a studio explore different emotions instead of just fine tuning that single euphoric moment. Cannot wait to try this out!

I am sooo excited for Resistance 3! The gameplay, graphics, story, and cover look wonderful! Also, I have a good ideas for single player destination, that is, if it isn’t too late. There should really be a part at Washington DC for some reason.
