Resistance 2 DLC and Patch 1.50 Available for Download on March 26

Bryan Intihar's Avatar Posted by Creative Director, Insomniac Games

Game on! Tomorrow (March 26) we’ll be bringing you a host of downloadable content for Resistance 2, plus another patch that helps improve the online experience even further (and includes several requests that came from…well, you!). So let’s get right down to it, shall we?

The DLC comes in two forms: new competitive multiplayer maps and character skins. The Aftermath Map Pack features three new battlefields, two set in Twin Falls (Aftermath and Pit Stop) and another in Orick (Outpost). All of the maps support 20-player Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch, while Outpost also lets you play 20-player Core Control. The Aftermath Map Pack will be available for download through the PlayStation Store for $5.99.

We also have six new competitive multiplayer character skins. In addition to our usual band of brothers (of the human, Cloven, and Chimeran variety), we even have two selections for our female R2 players. You can download the following skins through the PlayStation Store for $0.99 each: Rachael Parker, Female Soldier, Ravager, Cloven (Retribution model), Ranger Variation, and Black Ops Variation.

Then we have patch 1.50, or what some on the MyResistance.net forums have been calling the “the big patch.” And it definitely lives up to that nickname—it’s quite substantial. Once you install the patch (the download prompt will come up automatically once you start R2), you’ll now be treated to:

    Meltdown Mode: We’ve read the message-board comments. We’ve seen the online petition. You want it? You got it! Patch 1.50 brings back Meltdown, the popular Resistance: Fall of Man multiplayer mode in which each team attempts to gain control of the map by capturing beacons.

    Superhuman Co-op Mode: Does your eight-man Specter squad possess the skills to survive this all-new difficulty? It features stronger enemies and disables auto-respawning (only another squadmate can revive you), but dishes out bigger rewards (double the Grey Tech and XP per round).

    Second PSN Login Support: Your fellow couch potato can now save their character’s multiplayer progress, thanks to the added option to log in with two unique PSN accounts.

But that’s really just the beginning of patch 1.50’s offerings:

  • XP balance adjustments for competitive mode
  • Announcements screen
  • Failsafe save support
  • Password protected custom games
  • Added ability to “Report” player
  • Teams switch sides between Core Control rounds
  • Players now automatically go to staging after every competitive or cooperative game (regame)
  • Localization updates
  • Various stat fixes
  • Collision fixes on Bryce Canyon and Holar Tower cooperative levels
  • New leaderboards
  • Map fixes for competitive Chicago level
  • Games with Friends and Clan members in them are now highlighted in the “Find Game” screen
  • Limited late joining has been added to ranked games
  • Deathmatch spawning has been improved
  • Players can’t earn progress towards Berserks when they are dead
  • Reduced sprint speed of core carrier in Core Control games
  • Cooperative XP bonuses have been increased by 30%
  • Cooperative games respawn time is now 20 seconds
  • Players keep their grenades if they get revived in a cooperative game
  • Players now have a “Join Game” option for players on their friends list
  • A player’s own name is now in white in the obituary text

New Medals:

  • Savant – Come in first place 30 times in ranked matches (Comp)
  • Hero – Come in first place 60 times in ranked matches (Comp)
  • Legend – Come in first place 100 times in ranked matches (Comp)
  • Tools of Destruction – Score 100 kills with every single weapon (Comp)
  • Master Strategist – Score 100 kills with full health (Comp)
  • Arch Rival – Kill 500 rival squad members (Comp)
  • Full Honors – Take each class to max level (Coop)
  • Prophet – Revive 500 players (Coop)
  • Secret Agent – Obtain all spec ops upgrades (Coop)
  • Surgeon General – Obtain all medic upgrades (Coop)
  • Specter Elite – Obtain all soldier upgrades (Coop)
  • Like a Surgeon – 100 Splicer Kills (Comp)
  • Shake N’ Bake – 100 Pulse Cannon Kills (Comp)

New Ribbons:

  • Quickdraw – Get the first kill of the round (Comp)
  • Manic Medic – Heal for 1000 points within 3 seconds (Coop)
  • Solid Solider – Absorb 500 points of damage within a few seconds with your force barrier (Global)
  • Specter Survivor – Survive an objective without dying (Coop)
  • Specter Medic – Revive 2 or more allies within a few seconds (Coop)
  • Hail Mary – Throw ammo and hit your target from at least 10 meters away (Coop)
  • Quick and Painless – Score 3 headshots kills in a row (Global)

If you have any questions concerning the DLC and patch 1.50, you can find us on the MyResistance.net forums.

I played resistance 2 today after downloading the patch and i’ve noticed some problems. The Savant, Hero, and Legend Medals don’t seems to be working : I have 73 deathmacth wins and it stills indicate 0/30, 0/60 and 0/100. Even after winning 2 more deathmatch, i’m still at 0.
That made me noticed another thing : My kills and my wins arent registerd to my profile. For exemple I’ve got 6853 kills and 73 wins and after playing a few games I’m still at the same score. The same thing happen in coop. (does coop now need to by join with the “Play” button instead of the “Create” or “Join” to get the medals and the ribbons?) I don’t think so. I just think there might be a problem with the upgrade of player stats.

As for this update, THANK YOU

@ 201

I agree. i’ve earned many new ribbons, experience and grey tech. but all seams to vanish into thin air after the game finishes.

Actually i had about 50 grey tech lying about b4 update and earned about 50 more today after update but apparently i have 0 available.

Defiantly a few errors crept in with this upgrade. But still awsome.

Dark_Biz said:

I agree the patch is great.

Can we expect those problems solved soon?

After installing the patch, I noticed my stats won’t update after playing ranked TDM games. Any word when this problem might be fixed?

Iv been playing resistance for a good while now.. only online once until today. bieng at uinversity im unable to get a good enough internet connection so that sucks..
Came home today for easter, updated resistance..
Offline.. i had got a level 30 spec op 12 medic 11 soldier and completed the campaign..
When i play online now with the update it just adds xp from the players being at level 0? I cant understand why… Also when i collect graytech throughout a mission it is not added at the end.. Iv tried it with each class..
Im puzzled to be honest…
Help :)

Im from the UK and own the US import, can I use all the addon / DLC from the UK store with the US import version of the game?

wamerocity said:

March 26th, 5:27 pm

so… there’s no new maps for CO-OP mode? What a huge disappointment. The coop mode is what makes this game unique. There are a million games that offer a competitive style deathmatch play. Any plans for CO-OP maps?

Ping_506 said:

March 26th, 6:13 pm

is this patch the reason my competitive kills don’t show up and will there be a patch for the patch?

Velo214 said:

March 26th, 7:18 pm

This patch would be great if it didn’t require a patch to fix the unplayable errors it causes. Having player 2 able to save their stats is awesome, but is this worth losing all of player 1 stats? Hopefully Insomniac comes out with a patch today or yesterday or tomorrow to fix their patch.

James, I’m noticing a problem with the new firmware update. I just earned over a hundred gray tech, and it’s not saving when the game is turned off. I’ve tried it 3 times now and my gray is NOT being retained from session to session. I haven’t checked to see if that is the case with XP.

I’ve actually went down a level in competitive play from 15 to 14 after I downloaded the 1.50 patch. I then played a bit, hit 15, went back on after work and was 14 again. Still had my lvl 15 unlocks though at 14. Hopefully they fix this and the coop problems soon. Excited to play again once all the bugs are worked out.

furrypants-09 said:

^^Same problem with competetive
Also lost 6million xp which id gained from offline play and my overall rank had gone down to 52 from 60

Has anybody had any trouble with the update, I downloaded and now its not counting any of my kills or anything in competitive please help me.

I absolutely love the game and I was excited to hear about the update patch despite having zero new co-op maps. I was looking forward to the second account login, but after I installed the patch yesterday, I lost all of the second player stats! It didn’t even matter if I used the same account for both players. So when I played with my brother, I was level 30 and he had to start back at level 1 (he was level 30). We got him up to level 3, but after that he wasn’t earning any xp towards level 4. Talk about making a bad situation worse! I would rather go back to the old way when we just had to purchase the upgrades for the second player everytime we loaded the game, at least the player kept his xp level. I don’t see how any future patch could restore the lost information. I’m hoping it won’t take them too long to fix the bugs in this patch.

Also, it would be nice for some more co-op levels in the future, as well as being able to use the alternate skins in co-op mode (not just competitive).

yo i just down loaded the new patch and now when i play competitive my kill counts dont go up…and i was getting it in earlier and wen i went to check it didnt move…i hope yall sort that out…

the new upgrade is kool but all the new problems dat comes along wt it ain’t worth it truthfully…

imonfire193 said:

March 27th, 10:49 am

I seem to be having the same problem everyone else is. When I logged in, the patch installed, and I was surprised to find all the new stuff they had added to the game. However, when I went to play, I found my stats all screwed up. My overall rank has been decreased significantly, and my co-op level is stuck. When I gain any experience, however, it says that I’m at a lower level than even that. My gray tech has also disappeared. Any help?

furrypants-09 said:

March 27th, 11:18 am

O well were all in the same boat eh (,”)

TheModernWorld said:

March 27th, 12:16 pm

i was worried about the patch problems too hopefully they fix that soon. its frustrating playing co-op and not being able to level up

Tater0108 said:

March 27th, 1:33 pm

I can not seem to get the new ribbons in coop mode. Is there a reason for this?

Thrill_Kill said:

March 27th, 2:19 pm

Thank god you made the online co-op feature more difficult. Now if we could just get some new maps for raised lvl caps. Like make some new maps that are only accessable to those with all lvl 30 characters or something. We need a higher lvl cap please. All this new Grey tech and experience bonuses are worthless to us that got all 3 jobs lvl 30 months ago. The harder difficulty is nice, but we need more to keep the co-op alive online.

Make a Super Duper Human mode where if you die YOU STAY DEAD, like in Socom. That would make it even more strategic. Of coarse there can be some kinda med kits but not many…

Quick question about the second player co-op. when i play with my fellow couch potatoe we notice sometimes when we approach each other in game we get some fourm of lagg where the screen rapidly goes twitchy. can someone please explain why this happens and perhapse a cure for this. it really gets annoying at times


March 29th, 9:15 pm

Thank you,thank you,thank you finally yes you guys rock

March 30th, 8:39 am

Will this patch fix the problem with using 2 headsets in online co-op mode? Now that we can log in two players, can we also use 2 headsets? So far we’ve only been able to get 1 to work at a time.

great stuff but you missed one medal the “wrath master” you mind filling me in on what you had to do to get it.

Hi, after patching the game i notice that when i started to play the coop superhuman (find game) as a spec-ops my grey-tech vanished, spec-ops has lvl 30 but after match game show 28 or 29lvl and started to gain exp. and naturally the gray-tech was still 0 but when i was playing as a soldier the gray tech was saved. then a return to spec-ops and again was reset. Moreover i lost exp and total playing time etc.

The SINGLE PLAYER CAMPAIGN saves and stats have lost.

Sometimes game show me correct stats/rank for soldier but when i changed to spec-ops it was reset to 30lvl leutnant.

btw. patch is awesome:XD
superhuman mode force people to play as a team:>>>>
in coop->find game is needed one more option “sort by difficulty mode”;-)
i hope in next patch will be a new coop maps;)

March 30th, 4:46 pm

Okay, I’ve downloaded the patch, and I like it! The only problem I’ve had is that I hear no friendly fire voices. Um, is it supposed to be like that? No friendly fire voices? Come on!

stikmen said:

March 31st, 3:22 pm

since i downloaded the update i can’t get gray tec does any one have a solution for this problem it ticking me off, other then that the up grade did make some good changes like being able to save player two.

Ephracis said:

It’s called a “big” update and it doesn’t even have in-game music? This is the second update and still no custom music.

Are you even working on it? Have you considered it and turned it down? If so, why? Don’t you like music? I do. My whole music library is on the PS3 and I can’t figure out how to play it while in Resistance. It worked with other games but not R2.

Come on, guys. It was in the same FW that brought us trophies and you support them. How hard can it be, really. Give me my music back! :D

Hi guys i wonder if anyone can help me. my problem is that i cant even download the update, when i try to download it says downloading update and goes all the way to 99% then stalls there for awhile, then a error message comes up ” an error occured during the download operation (80710723)”
i have been trying to download this update from the day it came out and i have tried several times. im in jamaica and a friend of mine d/l it for his ps3 with no problems, then i thought it was a space issue so i deleted some demos and i still the same problem. am i the only one, anyone has any suggestions? without the update i cant even play the game with the internet connected and i love this game. is there a way i can download the update from my pc and transfer it to my ps3? help plz

DanteAPK said:

April 2nd, 10:00 am

when i got the version i lost all my Grey tech and it won’t go up when i play. and my level keeps going back to how it was before the update. anyone else got this problem?

Dark_Biz said:

April 2nd, 12:32 pm

Today I played R2 with my friend in my party. We played 10 games and none of them we manage to be in the same squad. We had a lot of problem joining games : the game were cancel because some people could join or something like that.
My stats had finally restart raising but now i think it is stuck again. Whats happening damn it!

Dark_Biz said:

April 3rd, 7:49 pm

I hope they will fix this soon, I lost progress today.
Another thing that should be remove is the possibility to join in a deathmatch already started : you enter the game and some guys have already 3 kills. It unfair for the people that didnt start at the same moment as the first ones.

george1391 said:

April 3rd, 7:56 pm

Yeah guys, I’m having the same problem with the stat updating, only experience I get in Campaign updates. Does anyone know when a fix will come out? I’m sure we can’t wait till that day arrives!

DJDIYM said:

April 7th, 1:05 pm

Add me and my problems im experiencing after the update to the list… In competitive I had to constantly repeat leveling up from 25 to 26 after each round all day long… The next day i leveled up to 26 for the last time and my xp kept building, but all that I lost the previous day was not added on.. It is next to impossible to start a game…. Im chasing platinum and my last trophy 10k kills… The only problem is since the update all of my kills have not been posting I would say maybe half have… I always play skirmish online with my brother we are 99% of the time in the same squad but never on opposite teams…. but since the update we’re almost always on opposite teams… Its not fun killing my brother… :( Please addres these issuses in the next update…

P.S. I bought everthing u guys released this time…

guitargod10 said:

April 9th, 8:45 pm

Chillim said:

April 22nd, 4:52 pm

Has anyone heard about an update on fixing the leveling system online. keep playing level 9 over and over on competetive.
