GDC 2011: Resistance 3 Multiplayer Revealed, Beta Coming!

Today, Insomniac released some information about Resistance 3’s multiplayer. The game will feature only 16-player Human vs. Chimera deathmatch and objective-based modes set in locations across the globe. This is quite the change from Resistance: Fall of Man and Resistance 2 which had between 40 – 60 players running around blowing each others heads off. According to Insomniac, this decision was based on the amount of fun the developers and community had playing the game on several maps from R:FoM and R2.

Another feature that will be included in the game is a very deep and customizable progression system, which means:

  • Each player can choose and level different support abilities – such as a Bubble Shield, Ammo Beacon (give ammo to teammates) or Radar Beacon (enhance your team’s radar).
  • Each player can also choose tactical abilities that you can use against your enemies, such as the Doppelganger (projects an image of you nearby to distract enemies) or Dash (an explosive burst of speed to evade enemy attacks).
  • Each player can select and level a personal attribute and a combat attribute. These range from the ability to have leapers bust out from your corpse, to start with more weapons in your arsenal, to reloading or firing at a faster rate.
