Resistance 3 Gameplay Trailer to Debut at the VGAs

Marcus Smith's Avatar Posted by

Creative Director, Insomniac Games

I wanted to stop by and give you an update about what’s been going on over the last couple of months. You may remember the live-action trailer that we revealed during GamesCom to formally announce Resistance 3. We’re very excited to reveal that we will be following that up with a new trailer, premiering exclusively during the Spike Video Game Awards (Saturday, December 11th in the States, check your local listings for time and network if you’re outside the US).

The trailer continues the live action experience, showing live-action snippets of three moments in the game, while also bringing you your first glimpse of actual gameplay from Resistance 3. Check out a teaser for the trailer below:

We hope this continues to help set the tone that Resistance 3 represents, so stay tuned for the show next week…

It seems to me that once again Resistance is set in a lifeless inviroment. More like a wasteland. I can’t wait.

    You might be surprised, in this installment we want you to encounter various groups of survivors, so while overall, yes, the country is a wasteland, you’ll be running into different groups across the country.

Can’t wait to see, R2 wasn’t perfect at all, but two years in development must have turned Resistance into a beast franchise. Let’s hope I’m right.

YESSS!!! I can’t wait to see gameplay footage, I’m really excited for Resistance 3 and I support Insomniacs 3 year development cycle plan

Only played R1, loved the R2 beta, but wasn’t sure whether to get R2? Any compelling reasons to get R2 and eventually R3?

    Cause R2 is cheap as a greatest hit, has some amazing set-pieces and a great story, and with online co-op and multiplayer is a huge bang for your $30?

as long as the weapon wheel comes back….I’m happy!!!

as much as R2 got ragged on, I will miss that mode of Co-op….but I understand why they axed it….
cant wait for the game tho!!

I really hope that this is as awesome as the trailer looks.

Very excited about R3! Heard some rumors on the storyline and it sounds like Earth has its hands full with the Chimera.

Is this game the exclusive ps3 reveal?

JKar275 said:

December 2nd, 9:49 am

I’m very upset that the separate 8-player online co-op mode in R2 will not be in R3. I sincerely hope that Insomniac either reconsiders this decision. Would it be possible to have this type of game mode as DLC?

Also, I’m upset that there will be no vehicles that we can drive/fly in the campaign.

Kamiboy said:

Live action was cool in the early 90’s, as pre-rendered was in the late 90’s. Today anything that has not direct correlation to the factual experience of playing said title is rather meaningless if you ask me.

But then no one did to begin with, so those two relics seem to still be kicking around.

DarkONE said:

Hopefully the multiplayer is more like R1. – Better graphics(Seems like more games look like ps2 than ps3 now) – Also I hope they took out the whole “perk” thing and brought back Chimera heat sensor. Note: not every shooter needs perks.

Hell yeah! Resistance is my favorite game! I’m so Pumped for this!

Will it have 4 player split-screen off-line mode with bots???? Why hasn’t anyone done that this gen for? Hmm…

Looking forward to R3 tho :P

live action experience? come on i want to see gameplay video not more live action

    It’s a combination – this extends the Cologne trailer, while also providing gameplay.

Going to go Set my DVR for this.. Be right back

That would be nice if it was a movie :-)

Dragun619 said:

Awesome, Can’t wait!

Gonna have to actually watch the vga’s.
Will there be a beta for R3?

ZalAamir said:

December 2nd, 10:39 am

the first teaser was live action, this one is a combination of live action and gameplay..

…will Resistance 3 have live action cutscenes? o.0

or is this merely for promotional usage?

    Promo. Mood setting. Cinematics in the game are using the game assets.

I’m not a fan of Spike’s VGAs and I wasn’t gonna watch but now I must because I love Resistance!!!!

DainBramage said:

December 2nd, 10:46 am

You know as much as I like Resistance there isn’t really anything in the world that can get me to watch that joke of a show called the VGAs. It’s like a combination of the Gong Show, the Bozo Show, BET Uncut videos, and X games commercials into one non-sensical stupid mess.

I will be looking at the trailer online so yay internet.

    The VGAs have improved a lot over the years. It’s a really big and fun show for gamers. Maybe give it another chance?

remanutd5 said:

    Don’t worry, there will be a good mix of gameplay, we don’t want to disappoint

Nathan Hale is dead right? I mean… he got **SPOILER** shot in the freakin face right?? Who are we gonna be playing as? and **SPOILER** The freaking Earth and Moon were both blown to hell… how and when is this taking place? before all that?

    SPOILERS******* *(Hale is dead) **********spoiler

    R3 takes place in 1957. Joseph Capelli is the main protagonist.

nikrel said:

I love the Resistance story line, I don’t want to give anything away so if anyone hasn’t played this series yet give it a try, the story alone is worth playing it. The gameplay is pretty awesome too but for me if a game has no story but great gameplay then it’s a bust for me.

I can’t wait for the Resistance 3 gameplay, the Live trailer seemed more survival than the other games.. can’t wait thanks so much Insomniac!

Slayer_8907 said:

December 2nd, 10:56 am

I am freaking out over here btw… I’m soooo freaking stoked!!! I FREAKING LOOOOVE THE RESISTANCE GAMES!!!!

Hoping for campaign co-op to make an awesome return.

Rhino136 said:

Haha you just got me thinking, I’m from San Antonio and a last stand at the Alamo would make me happy.

Zinacef said:

December 2nd, 11:36 am

Are we going to see any characters from the first one, e.g. Captain Rachel Parker?

    James Stevenson said:

    December 2nd, 11:41 am

    Not directly as those folks are in Europe, but fans who search around might find some clues as to what’s up with the rest of the global resistance.

JKar275 said:

December 2nd, 11:36 am

@James: Will we be able to fight underwater enemies (Kraken, Furies, etc.) while we’re underwater ourselves.

Note: we were able to do this in Resistance: Retribution.

CF3esBestia said:

What about a PSP verison down the line? Or one for the PSP2(yeah we know it exists)

    Marcus Smith's Avatar

    James Stevenson said:

    December 2nd, 11:44 am

    We’re totally focused on PS3 games right now — Sony Bend took on the PSP game Resistance: Retribution. So that’s probably a better question for the Sony folk.

That Insomniac is a pretty cool guy. eh makes a non-fail alein shooter and doesn’t afraid of anything.

BLEACH-Fan said:

December 2nd, 11:56 am

Will we ever find out what happened to James Grayson did he end up like Hale??

srmej said:

December 2nd, 12:08 pm

WOW R2 was the best I love the online multi-player as you and your friends go through the areas doing missions. Is that going to be back in R3. Also you guys ROCK dont stop the resistance franchise it is the best. Insomniac keep bringing us these great games to us you are much appreciated.

Arcadian_Rebel said:

December 2nd, 12:08 pm

I’ll be watching!

ryker_362 said:

December 2nd, 12:08 pm

Resistance 2 was a blast to play with friends, but it gets hectic from time to time. Any news on how the multiplayer will be, this time around?

Also can you please tell the guys at Insomniac Games to make the shotgun a bit more powerful? lol it takes around 7 regular shots to get someone. Just a little suggestion

Slayer_8907 said:

December 2nd, 12:09 pm

I AM SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FREAKING READY FOR THIS GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU INSOMNIAC!!!!!!!!!!!!! and thank you James for the heads up on who the main character is, quite a relief to know ^_^
