Sony’s staple-gunned a UK release date to Insomniac Games’ Resistance 3, confirming the Chimera-slaying sequel will launch in the region on September 9.
In addition, the console maker also pulled the curtain back on a heap of pre-order incentives for you to sink your teeth into. Check them out below – note that the items vary depending on the retailer.
-SRPA Black Ops skin: Once a common sight in the war against the Chimera, this special SRPA Black Ops multiplayer skin lets you return to the battlefield as one of the most mysterious and deadly soldiers from Resistance 2 and Resistance: Fall of Man.
-Infected Nathan Hale skin: By skipping his viral inhibitor treatment throughout Resistance 2, Nathan Hale fell victim to the deadly Chimera virus. Now you can resurrect the fallen hero with this special multiplayer character skin.
-Air Fuel grenade: Equip Joseph Capelli with an explosive advantage as he embarks on his journey across America. This exclusive grenade releases a cloud of highly flammable vapour, creating a huge blast when ignited – perfect for taking out hordes of Chimera in tight urban spaces.
-Special multiplayer title - "Sentinel": Pledge your allegiance to the elite unit of the SRPA – the Sentinels – with this multiplayer title, exclusive to pre-order customers.
-Multiplayer booster - Get an early advantage on the multiplayer battlefield by starting the fight at level 5 – and gain access to a range of character and weapon customisation options.
-Chimera tooth necklace: Show your support for the resistance by wearing Joseph Capelli's Chimera tooth necklace.
Elsewhere, Sony revealed that two special edition versions of the FPS will be made available alongside the standard release. The regular SE packs all the above content, a steelbook case and a ‘vinyl effect’ Blu-ray disc.
Meanwhile, the swanky Survivor Edition throws in a canvas satchel, a Chimera firing-range target poster, “Fight for Freedom” toy soldier, Joseph Capelli’s journal, an SRPA hip flask and SRPA playing cards.
Pricings for the special editions have yet to be revealed, however, so stay tuned for further details.
