About Resistance 2
On the brink of annihilation, mankind resumes the fight against the unstoppable Chimera on the shores of the United States. And thus the stage is set for Resistance 2, the highly anticipated follow-up to Insomniac Games' best-selling PS3 system launch title. Players will once again step into the war-torn boots of US Army Lt. Nathan Hale, who not only faces near impossible odds on the battlefield, but also constantly struggles with the Chimera virus raging inside his own body. In addition to an epic single-player campaign, Resistance 2 will offer a truly unprecedented eight-player, class-based online co-op campaign and 60-player online competitive multiplayer built upon a 'massive battles, greater intimacy' mantra. Also, players can expect tightly integrated community support via www.MyResistance.net.
