GreenDaily: Because nature can't wait until tomorrow.

New Resistance Maps and Modes

In March, there will come a few new multiplayer modes of play for the PS3 launch title Resistance: Fall of Man. Soon after, in May, there will come a few new maps. This is exciting news for anyone who has learned the layout of every map and is pretty much bored of the same running route or always playing capture the flag... or whatever. Anyway, the two new gameplay modes are "Team Conversion" and "Assault".

  • Team Conversion: like Conversion, but with a team. Neat?
  • Assault: essentially, both teams have a base they need to defend and they also have a set of defense nodes and satellite nodes that, if destroyed, weaken the "defenses" of their main base. We guess that means the "health bar" for the main base would decrease. Overtaken satellite nodes become neutral -- a spawning point for both teams. Dangerous!

Other fixes have been made for the March patch. Spectators can join custom games and use a player's eyes as his own, along with a free-roaming camera so you can see that sniper in the bushes even if the player doesn't. All glitches and collision holes have been fixed. Matchmaking is quicker and more reliable. Weapons tweaked; the old radar has been added as an option if you want it.

What's in store for May? Well, how does worldwide play sound to you? A nice addition, indeed. Also, the map pack will be made available for purchase and download within the game. Both maps are set in England: one in Westmorland, one in Camborn. The former is snowy and very open, the latter has both above ground and subterranean combat. These aren't rehashed maps, either -- they've brand new and specifically designed for multiplayer.

Geez. There's a lot of info in the interview with IGN. We decided to cover the maps and new gameplay modes, but the interview also discusses the European launch, plans for future updates, and of course, the all-but-confirmed sequel. Even so, this stuff looks like it'll satisfy plenty of gamers until more information becomes available. Your thoughts?
[Thanks, Sean!]

1. FINALLY! Just hope they choose to deliver these for cheep, it would be nice to get two maps for a fiver, heck, I'd buy every map pack afterwards based solely on the price.

P.S... Hey Insomniac, how about a gaff for april 1st? Perhaps remaking one of the current maps over to look like a rachet and clank level (or even more, include an R&C level into a multiplayer map pack).. Just thoughts guys

2. Excellent, now if only they allow you to either choose if you DONT want to play as a certain race in ranked deathmatch games (ie: Chimera) or at least let you quit out of the lobby (someone should be beaten for not allowing that. It's almost a REQUIREMENT of putting together an online mode), I'll totally give them more money for this stuff, otherwise screw it. Playing human games is probably the most fun I've had playing an online game. Playing as chimera sucks balls.

3. or Vehicles would be nice

4. Hmmm...not sure that I want to play this game anymore. There's just no beef nor personality to the online play.

I'd check it out if it were free...otherwise it wouldn't be worth the effort in turning the console on.

5. I seriously HATE conversion. They really should have allowed for ranked games to have modes specifically selected or deselected.

But im all for updates and these sound great!
