R3 @ Comic-Con: Join the Global Resistance Right Now!

James Stevenson's Avatar + Posted by James Stevenson on Jul 22, 2011 // Community Lead, Insomniac Games

Greetings from San Diego and the International Comic-Con. Hopefully you caught all the cool Resistance 3 coverage from last night’s episode of Gametrailers TV. All-new and exclusive footage from St. Louis, a new cutscene showing Charlie Tent and the Remnants, and the re-imagining of the classic Breach mode that is a huge-fan favorite.

Last night, IGN Editor Colin Moriarty moderated a panel on Resistance 3 featuring Creative Director Marcus Smith, Art Director Grant Hollis, Animation Director Kevin Grow, as well as voice actor Robin Atkin Downes (Joseph Capelli) and Crispin Freeman (Charlie Tent). The panel covered the Resistance universe, showed some of the new St. Louis footage we debuted on Gametrailers TV last night, and we discussed the St. Louis level, along with its mysterious story implications about Charlie Tent and his ragtag group of rebels. And from there, we gave the audience a behind the scenes look of the motion- and performance- capture that we used to bring the characters to life in Resistance 3. Since you all couldn’t be there with us, check out this highlight video of some of the best moments from the panel.

We also announced a new online strategy game complementing Resistance 3 that will live on www.myresistance.net/global.

Global Resistance is a free-to-play online strategy game set against mankind’s final stand in the Resistance Universe. Enlist as a Chimera or Human commander and take over the world to unlock exclusive Resistance 3 multiplayer skins, in-game titles and XP boosters. Customize your base, build and deploy your personal arsenal alongside thousands of other players, or attack on your rivals directly in head-to-head skirmishes. Will you join the Resistance… or crush it?

We also have a trailer for Global Resistance! Check it out below:

The game is live now – though you have to sign into MyResistance.net with your Facebook or PSN Username in order to be the first to check it out!

That’s all for now – hope you’ve enjoyed the coverage this week, much more on Resistance 3 to come very soon. For all the latest, be sure to Follow Insomniac Games on Twitter or Like Us on Facebook.

By the way, I KNOW you say you only have multiplayer goodies for pre-order… BUT NO PRE-ORDER GOODIES FOR SINGLE PLAYER CAMPAIGNS??? How shame… :-(

That game look nice, I hope you dont need facebook to play it because I want to try it!

By the way, Canada is still part of that resistance! Put it on your site or at least north america it would do too.

I don’t see a way to link my PSN to Global Resistance, I can only login using facebook. But I did play around with it yesterday (before the servers became full), and it was entertaining. I love how I get to level up, which unlocks more of the game.

Very interesting panel! The game’s shaping to be GOTY material for me. Can’t wait. 9/6/11 can’t come soon enough. A little sad about the lack of a US survival edition but oh well…. :(

Hey its Togusa from GITS! I didn’t know the VA’s name, but as soon as he started to speak I instantly recognized his voice. Cool stuff, I wish there was more interviews and stuff like this for VA’s in games, cause to me the VA’s are an extremely important piece of a game, and seeing them in person is kind of like meeting the stars behind the curtain.

Because lets face it, the VA’s make the character, and since there is no real characters (because they are animated of course) the VA’s are the real stars of the show.

maximum capacity. When will you add more player capacity?? I Can’t wait for R3!!!!!

I just wish i could log in with my PSN username, instead of my facebook 2 try the beta. Insomniac, please fix that.

Played Global Resistance a bit today…did a fine job of pissing me off. Had a well thought out and executed plan that FAILED because the conditions for taking territory are unclear…and by ‘unclear,’ I mean not a single person know it, and what makes sense doesn’t work.

How am I supposed to make a plan when I don’t have a clue what the win conditions are!? I’ll give it until Monday. Past that, I’m out.

I hate to come here and just complain about stuff, but seriously…this was just bad.

I was a Resistance fan up until today.

The “Territory Control” aspect of this Global Resistance game was ommitted leading to everyone in the community wasting hours on this game. To add insult to injury, Insomniac tells the community that there wasnt anything missing because in their minds they are the creators and therefore the game only has to work how they want it to work, not what 99% other normal human beings expect.

And then they banned those in the community for asking when they were going to complete the game. And they asked about as nicely as you could have expected given the circumstances.

The developers were rude and made distateful jokes to some members of the community.

They remind me of the people in the Jackass movies. They didnt care about anyone they were just “Jackass’s” and did what they wanted. Never have I ever felt dislike for an actual company, but now I know what it feels like. I wont buy their product anymore unless they apologize for this “Global Resistance” mess and their moderators who blatantly lied and mocked the community.

Global Resistance was fun though until we realized it was all smoke and mirrors and it didnt actually work.

It would be great if they fixed it and hired better PR people.

This game is going to be AWESOME!!!! Can not wait! This is a day one buy just like the other games.

I saw a similar video on the GameSpot site and I believe it was Rey Gutierrez who was recording this video and he walked right into the middle of their camera and stayed for a good minute or two. I thought it was pretty funny.

As a huge R1 fan, I was really looking forward to this game, but you guys had to get greedy and give us a huge F YOU and add an online pass to this, so you guys just lost a consumer.
