Resistance 2 beta begins… today!

Greg Phillips's Avatar Posted by Senior Producer, SIE

Heya, it’s been a while since I’ve been seen around these parts as James Stevenson, Bryan Intihar and the others at Insomniac have been doing most of the Resistance 2 posting as of late. Along with my return to the blog, I bring a few announcements with regards to R2:

  • Today, October 16th, the public beta for Resistance 2 will begin in North America. The beta will offer gamers a glimpse at Resistance 2’s online competitive and co-op modes ahead of the game’s launch on November 4th. We will be admitting players in two waves: a Premiere wave which includes those that pre-ordered at GameStop, individuals who subscribed to QORE for one year and/or bought the episode featuring Resistance 2 and a recent contest from Those of you in the Premiere wave should be receiving an email with a registration code between now and tomorrow afternoon. A second wave is starting in the middle of next week, and you apply to be a part of it by going to once the site goes live (later tonight). For those of you across the pond in Europe, the public beta will also begin next week.
  • The Beta will include competitive maps from three locations in the game. These maps include 60-, 40-, and 20-player maps from Orick, 40- and 20-player maps from Chicago, and the 10-Player map Sub Docks (Bay Area). New modes Skirmish and Core control will be supported, along with Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch. The co-op portion of the beta will focused on Orick, and will support randomization of your play-path. Both co-op and competitive will support matchmaking and class/character progression up to level 10. This will allow unlocking of new equipment, upgrades and berserks for character customization.
  • Speaking of, the beta version of our new community site goes live tonight as well. Customizable leader boards/user profiles, individual blogs and ‘ticker’ that provides players with up to minute information of happenings on the site are just some of the features the beta site has to offer. Leading into the November 4th North American launch of the game (and the months to follow), we’ll be adding several more features that will make the destination for all Resistance fans.
  • And, finally, Resistance 2 has gone gold. As a special treat, the below image gives all of you PlayStation Blog readers an idea on just how big just the online coop campaign mode is :)

That’s all for now. Keep your eyes open for more R2 announcements as we lead into launch. If you have any questions, write them in the comments sections and I’ll do my best to answer them.

    BeNeXus, not sure why you would still be getting an error. What is your PSN ID and I\’ll try to take a look.

Hmm, so what is the deadline for being in the beta after purchasing the qore 3 episode?

I bought the MGS bundle right around episode 4, which I purchased to see what it’s all about. Liked it, wanted the beta but noticed I couldn’t do the annual subscription anymore. Bought the episode 3 separately specifically for the beta and now….

Tough out of luck?

“-Anyone who bought episode 3 only during the beta offer will be admitted into the open wave of the beta next week.”

Yeah, thats a bunch of BS. I won’t be buying anymore episodes of this garbage anymore. Guess when you said “Premiere wave,individuals who subscribed to QORE for one year and/or bought the episode featuring Resistance 2.” you were just messing around huh?

I’m a annual subscriber to core, I’m still waiting for my beta. I had to wait almost a week to receive my Socom beta after it was already released. Will I have to wait this long again? To top it off i’m the only one on my friends list not already playing it… this is NOT fair, everyone should get it at the same time.

I’m also someone who downloaded Qore episode 3 (still have it on my harddrive) who has not received a beta code. Here’s hoping I can get some relief here… The wait is killing me!

Thanks in advance!

After reading through 8 pages of comments I figured out that I should be getting mine next week. Here’s an actually valid question…

I bought Qore 3 quickly after it came out but had to delete it due to room. I re-downloaded it about a month ago due to anticipation for the R2 beta going up on Qore. Will I still get a code or did I have to hold on to it from the day I downloaded it?

Hey gphillips, Ive been checking, but still have not received my beta code. I pre-ordered from gamestop last Sunday and applied the same day. Any way to check?

Sgt_Bobo said:

Prayer350z said:

October 18th, 2:59 pm

Still no code: I even called and well..that was just a pointless 10minutes of my life. I want my code please.

I didn’t receive my code yet (bought all Qore’s).

Hate to be a broken record, but I purchased the annual subscription to qore to enjoy early betas and demos. so far i have enjoyed the socom beta and the early motorstorm demo. I have been watching my email since the 16th and have not seen any email with my beta code. Please help me.
My email is and my psn id is betrixkiddo Thanks so much.

Dilldude35 said:

October 18th, 4:10 pm

Hello, I heard that the ones that bought Qore episode 3 would get the code in the first wave, why haven’t I got it yet? I’m rather dissapointed…

Dilldude35 said:

October 18th, 4:12 pm

Oh, nevermind, I beleive I will get into wave 2. :)

betrixkiddo said:

October 18th, 4:17 pm

the truth is that we were told that people that only bought episode 3 of qore would be in the second wave of the beta and that the people that bought the full years subscription would be in the first wave. Doesn’t seem to matter though, because there are several customers on this blog including myself that are year’s subscription people that have yet to receive beta codes. i think the qore people somehow got R2 beta emails screwed up. I have received my email for the socom beta from qore first day it was available.

Hi, been reading this and checking my email for days now, yes i bought ep.3 when it came out for the beta also. so leaving my email here to hope to get a code also, thanks and keep up the hard work!

thank you

Bam3vO said:

October 18th, 7:22 pm

I havent received my key and I purchased qore3 on the first day! I dont understand why they even bother putting the download link in Qore if it doesnt even work. Same with Socom, purchased Qore1 (in fact I have all Qore’s) never received my beta key! No need to mess with people Sony, if you promise betas for Qore customers then just tell us the exact date and make it happen. None of this BS phony download link that doesnt work and empty promises. I will still purchase R2, but my qore days are over…waisted money.

TALONTSx said:
