No loading screens at all in Resistance 2, says Price

Wednesday, 4th June 2008 17:33 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Speaking in a live interview on Eurogamer, Insomniac boss Ted Price has revealed that you’re not going to see a single loading screen in upcoming shooter Resistance 2, all thanks to tech improvements made since the release of the first game.

“We do have streaming of textures and other assets now,” said Price. “Not only does this improve the overall look but it cuts down on load times. In fact, you shouldn’t notice any loading screens in R2. We’ve also added a lot more tech-wise – detail maps, new lighting system, new effects system, better normal mapping, better specular response, redone shaders and lots of behind-the-scenes stuff that makes the game really stand out aesthetically.”

He added: “You’ll see bigger ‘levels’ or ‘chapters’ this time around. And hopefully you won’t see any loading screens. At least that’s the plan!”

Ted’s still going, so get over there and ask him a question. See if you can find out what colour his pants are.

    pat’s getting good at the red rag sensationalism :D

    i’d have gone for “No loading screens at all in Resistance 2 unlike Gears of War 2 which will have loads! … and is only 565p!!!1 XBITCHORZ!”

    Remeber, Resistance 1 filled up the whole Blu Ray and wasn’t possible on any other system due to the awesomeness!

    someone quick, go do what mortiferus said.
    Ted Price: Too early to answer that one. We’re still finishing up the content for the game. That’s a question we’ll be able to answer as we get closer to launch.
