Free Resistance 2 Multiplayer Skins

177 0

Remember these guys?

Dr. Malikov and The Grims didn’t just have a part in Resistance 2’s campaign—you could also assume the role of these characters on the game’s competitive multiplayer battlefields. Well, that’s if you pre-ordered R2 at select U.S. retailers and received one of the bonus multiplayer skins.

Over the last few months we’ve received a number of e-mails from Resistance fans here and around the globe requesting these exclusive skins. So starting today both will be available for download through the PlayStation Store for free (releasing on June 11 in Europe)!

And speaking of adding to your Resistance collection, we’ve also seen quite a few franchise-related items come out since R2’s release. Here’s a quick refresher for you:

  • The comic book series: Wildstorm (a division of DC Comics) has published a six-part miniseries that revealed all-new details about the Resistance universe, which included an in-depth look at the Sentinels and touched upon aspects of the Retribution storyline. Issue #6 just hit store shelves last week.
  • The novel: Ever wonder what exactly happened during the two-year gap that separates the first two levels of R2? Acclaimed science-fiction author William Dietz tells that story in Resistance: The Gathering Storm, which is available now.
  • The t-shirt: With the weather starting to heat up, here’s the perfect addition to your gaming wardrobe. You can find this t-shirt at your local Hot Topic and its online store.

More is also on the way, including Resistance action figures from DC Unlimited. Lt. Nathan Hale, the Ravager, and other characters from the franchise will be available this September.

  • NHDrumline17

    sweet, even though I have both skins already…

  • Ummm… update already please…

  • freakyzeeky

    Yay! Free skins! Free stuff is always appreciated. :)

  • Sa-weet! You know, I’ve had the game since launch, but if you compared my time in competitive with those of people who’ve only had the game for a week or two, they’d easily beat me out in terms of game-time. Still, I’ll be glad to get these skins for the time-to-time games I jump into.

    Kick ass at E3, Insomniac! :D

  • Any R2 announcements at E3? or resistance series in general?

  • Great announcement! Can we get the store update post now plz? its getting later and later every week…

  • cool

  • Very nice, loving the continued support/add-ons for this game! So much news lately, I love it!

  • Vengeful-Chaos

    Very Nice, I could of used these when I played the game. It would have been awesome playing as a grime getting those tedious 10,000 kills.

  • Ummmm you guys are updating the store today, right?

  • WakeAndBake52

    Where is the update for the store? Its been getting slower and slower for you guys.

  • I don’t like making the skins open like that.

    It wouldn’t bother me, but you get different bonuses for different retailers. If you chose this “preorder bonus” and neglected another, and now this bonus is free for EVERYONE, you just messed with some of the people who GOT the preorder bonus.

    Unless, of course, you make ALL the bonuses open to everyone now…(I don’t remember what the others were for R2…)

  • Vengeful-Chaos

    grim*

  • woohoo! Thank you insomniac! This is why I shall continue buying your games, this great support!

  • i think R3 will be seen at E3 :P i hope

  • mastrofallz

    @31.

    Its only 3:18 over there. They are in pacific time, and they probably update at 4 over there.

    I agree though, it should be earlier.

  • Sold this a while ago for KZ2.

    Please Imsomniac… take more time developing your games. You guys are great… but instead of an OK game every year… make one AWESOME game every other year.

  • hey just update the store now ok

  • yeah sony update the store it’s 7’30 i have to work tommorow.

  • The book wasn’t bad if anyone’s interested. Huge character development for Hale.

    Ooo… T-shirt. I could make one if I wanted to though.

  • UPDATE THE FREAKING STORE ALREADY!

  • @32

    I agree. What’s the point of having a “pre-order bonus” for multiplayer skins when you’re just going to pull off a stunt like this?

  • This is great. R2 is my all time favorite. Also got all 5 issues of resistance already waiting for the next! Thanks imsoniac. So, any news on R3!! Anytime soon!

  • LOL I remember that old guy.

    The quote I remember the most from him is:

    “THERE IS ANOTHER TITAN!”

  • please sony update the store fast

  • Sony Please just update the store…

    and can someone send in a request to move the update time to early in the morning..EASTERN TIME so that everyone except pacific time doesn’t have to wait till night.

    its just another inconvenient of the PSN that needs to be smoothed over

    @26 R&CF2

    1-Trophies SUPPORT?
    YES all games released after march of 09 are required to have Trophies on release day.

    2-Remote Play SUPPORT?
    No and why would it?

    3-Home service SUPPORT?
    Maybe a Home space, but without an online component what would be the point? Can’t do game launching….unless that is insomniacs big surprise at E3. I suggest keeping your ears open on Tuesday and watch the blog for potential details. You won’t get this answer until after next week.

    4-Sixaxis motion controller SUPPORT?
    Don’t see why not, in R1, in R2, in R&CF1. Sixaxis is slowly finding its nitch, but hopefully Insomniac has tried to do something truly creative with this feature.

    5-in game custom sound track SUPPORT?
    Nope, I think they answered this in a previous blog entry.

    6-youtube uploading SUPPORT?
    Useless feature and most likely it won’t. Unless we fall back to that online possibility I already listed.

    7-In-game internet browser SUPPORT?
    No

  • StrykerIsland

    Wish I could use skins in co-op!

  • Sony takes forever to update the store.

  • I pre-ordered it from amazon and i never got the skins…
