UPDATE: I’ve just tried Resistance online and it asked me to download the update! I will let you know if Map Pack 1 is available once it’s downloaded. It took just over 12mins for the download to complete.
I’m now downloading Map Pack 1 (312 MB) which cost me £2.99.
I’ve posted my initial thoughts in the comments section of this post.
So we know we will be able to buy Map Pack 1 once the servers are back up again, but what else will be in the big resistance update? Check this out which was posted in the MyResistance.Net forums. I would provide a link but you need to be a member to actually view the forum post:
Full notes follow:
- Resistance: Fall of Man Map Pack 1 now available for download! This map pack contains both Westmorland, England and Camborne, England. Both are additional multiplayer maps designed to be played with Resistance: Fall of Man. Westmorland features snowy hills and Chimeran architecture. Great for snipers! Camborne features both above ground and underground fighting introducing a new twist on team battles. Both maps support all Resistance multiplayer game types. You must own Resistance: Fall of Man to play either map. To make purchasing and downloading the map pack quick and easy, there is now a “Purchase” button on the main online menu. Going to the “Purchase” menu will allow you to select, purchase, and download the map pack from within Resistance
- Worldwide Servers! Now you can play with your friends anywhere in the world since all Resistance servers are now connected to allow for worldwide play. There is a new option in the “Multiplayer Options” menu called “Worldwide Player”. Setting this to “Worldwide” will allow you to play games against other players all over the world. Setting it to your local region (North America, Europe, etc) will restrict your games to only allow other players from your region to join, and will guarantee that any players you are matched against when playing ranked games are from the same region as you. If you create a party, your party will use the Worldwide Play setting from your multiplayer options (ie, if you are set to “North America”, only north American players will be allowed to join your party, but if you are set to “Worldwide”, anyone can join). Players who are set to “Worldwide” may still join games created by players who are set to their local region only as long as both players are from the same region.
- The XMB Friends list is now accessible from the R:FoM Lobby. To access it, go to “Community” and select “Friends”.
