Resistance 3 set in New York, says ad

Sunday, 11th October 2009 18:42 GMT By Patrick Garratt


Pictures taken from the set of upcoming film Battle: Los Angeles have apparently outed Resistance 3. Oops. Take a look on NeoGAF.

If the images are to be believed, the game’s set in New York. There’s a Statue of Liberty on it, and everything.

Looks real. Probably is real. No confirmation, though.

    Never heard of Battle: Los Angeles, i’m guess it has something to do with the mystery of the battle of Los Angeles from the 40′s?
    Either way, why would this ad be there exactly?

    That was unexpected.

    No doubt it looks real, but I’m call it fake. Just on the timing of it.

    It’s far too soon. Normally, Insominiac tend to announce new games at round GDC. Look at R2 and Ratchet and Clank: Crack in Time.

    Just… no.

    Well its not an official announcment, more like a slip.

    The movie is about “A Marine platoon faces off against an alien invasion in Los Angeles” and it’s scheduled for 2011.

    Coincidence? ;)

    I know, but even still! They didnt even release internal footage of R2 until December 2007 inside Insomniac if I remember rightly. So even then, too soon.

    For comparisons sake.

    Resistance 2:

    December 2007 – Internal gsmeplay footage released only to Insomniac and Sony probably.
    March 2008 – Insomniac tease the game in viral video released at GDC.
    April 2008 – Game properly revealed in Game Informer.
    May 2008 – Teaser released.
    June 2008 – GTTV showcase for the game.
    July 2008 – Live demo at E3 during Sony presser.
    November 2008 – Released.

    Not including obviously when all the other trailers were released obviously.

    So yeah, a bit too early, slip or not.

    I doubt Insomniac will be too thrilled with this. They’re on the verge of launching the new Ratchet and Clank game, and suddenly everyone is going to want to talk about Resistance 3.

    Now theres a plan, someone should ask them about it. :D

    Johnny, I have to believe that’s utter tripe.

    Their whole team does not work on a a game annually, it’s split into two teams with pre/early production one one product while the other is being marketed.

    Anyone at Insomniac who would have wanted to see R2, before Dec 2007, would have been able to. In fact didn’t SurferGirl leak Alpha stuff from R2 WAY before Dec 2007?

    More Resistance? The Ratchet games are fantastic but the Resistance games just really don’t do anything for me.

    Resistance FoM was great, btu the second one was shit on a stick.

    PUD – I know Insomniac is split in two with Ratchet and Resistance. I was only going through what I can remember. I have a good memory it has to be said, but not great. :(

    I’ve only played the first one and I thought it was pretty awful.

    #12 5 years ago
  13. No_PUDding

    I loved the platforming to it, and the enemies were awesome. It was a shockingly tactical game.

    And… I only cared about the atmosphere anyway, it was great with the SLIGHTLY cartoony aesthetic Insomniac broguht, I loved the hand keyed animation.

    @Johnny, Well it just seems ridiculous that they will probabaly have a game out this fall that currently is in pre production. It’s got to be in partial production by now.

    Hope IG step it up a notch. R2 really went down hill, it just felt rushed and like it had little effort put into it.

    the movie the billboard is set to appear in will be out in FEBRUARY 2011.

    i.e. probably no insomniac game in 2010.

    I just can’t get excited by any Sony exclusive FPS’s. Promise lots, but deliver a whole lotta “meh”, Yeah i’m looking at you Killzone2. Hopefully third times a charm.

    #16 5 years ago
  17. mescalineeyes

    Killzone 2 is actuallz pretty awesome, I played some of it today while waiting for Brütal Legend to install.
    Killzone 2 is better :x

  18. The Hindle

    Well thats me proven wrong, i thought R3 would be out 2011 and i also thought insominacs new studio would release thier game next year but looks like its R3 next year

    #18 5 years ago
  19. Redh3lix

    Killzone 2 is simply the best FPS on console to date. My opinion.

    I’d agree, maybe we’ll get some Ratchet DLC though, if it’s anything like Quest for Booty it’ll be more win.

    Killzone 2 is the best FPS released this year so far.

    Full stop.

    @Johnny Cullen
    The Game Informer reveal of Resistance 2 was in January 08. I’m sure the Sony producers would have seen footage of it long before then.

    Secondly this isn’t an announcement of Resistance 3. This is a leak, albeit of an unusual kind.

    Hopefully this time they listen to the fans and add land, sea, and air vehicles in online co-op and multiplayer.

    Sony putting product placement tin their own movies does scream unification to me. So that’s kind of a good sign.

    R3 next year? Man people are dumb

    This moving is coming out in 2011.. What is next year you load of geniuses? 2010. Its an IN MOVIE advertisement. As in the game will release around the time of the movie or AFTER the movie. ffs get a clue.

    #25 5 years ago
  26. Gekidami

    Indeed Killzone 2 was pretty awesome, all it was lacking was coop and a matchmaking system to be even better. R2 on the other hand had those but it just lacked quality.
    I hope we dont see R3 before 2011 to give IG some time to work on it, like i said before R2 just felt rushed.

    I can only assume the devs spent more time messing around in that playground of an office they own then actually working on the game. :D

  27. No_PUDding

    And I guess you would have known that to look at the picture too? So before you start chucking about superlatives describing our intelligence.

    I’d love next time, for you to approach this place with enough brain, to ask whether we know that, not to come in and slam everyone for not knowing directly from the picture.

    I HAD read it, but I still assume R3 is next year anyway, so you can call me an idiot.

    We don’t actually know what movie this is from. This Battle Los Angeles thing seems to be a GAFfer’s guess based on forthcoming Sony films that might feature aliens, and various blogs have now picked this up and run with it. On the other hand it’s not difficult to deduce from Insomniac’s recent history that Resistance 3 is coming in 2010.

    I would be lying if i said r2 was shit as I didnt play it.
    I dont own a ps3.
    But by all accounts it was not as good as the first one.
    I have been told that by ps3 owners who are mates.
    In saying that I do beleive it is a franchise with legs on it.
    Insomniac seem to be quite good developers so they may want to build on it.
    It was a pretty decent launch game for the ps3 and I would personally not write it off.

    I personally hope it is in the making as any game worth its salt is good for us gamers regardless of platform.

    @mescalaineeyes. Very good! :-) My mate has this and firefight is mint! Though i’ve not forgiven Bungie for killing of Sargeant Johnson :-(

    Back to the rumoured R3, whenever it lands, it’ll hafta have some big hairy balls to stand out.

    #32 5 years ago
  33. Johnny Cullen

    mescalineeyes – Nein.

    ODST is a good game, but Killzone 2 is a much better FPS.

    So yeah, Killzone 2 is the best FPS released so far. Only games that can challenge it is Left 4 Dead 2 and Modern Warfare 2.

    Your opinion JC nothing else.
    I have been told controls are terrible in kz2.
    No such problems with odst mate.

  35. The Hindle

    Loved Killzone 2 and im hoping R3 uses its graphics engine as lets face it R2s graphics were outdated

    #35 5 years ago
  36. mescalineeyes

    controls are fine now with the precision mode patch in kz2.
    JC – you are more than entitled to that opinion, if any game so far could be better than ODST, it’s def Killzone 2. Spent countless hours in both SP and MP.

    im hoping R3 uses its graphics engine as lets face it R2s graphics were outdated
    Insomniac can’t use a first party sony engine, unfortunately, and while some components are shared, guerilla has said that that engine will only be used by them.
    also, if you look at crack in time (60fps to boot), I am fairly certain insomniac has made some improvements.

    If the movie was coming out in 2010 they wouldn’t be filming late 2009, unless its some budget garbage. ;)


    Lol yes the best FPS this year was a 4 hour game thats based on a 3 or 4 year old engine and did absolutely nothing new, just stuck “Halo” on the brand and suddenly its amazing..

    Xbox fanboism at its BEST here.

    #37 5 years ago
  38. Johnny Cullen

    Reask – I am not going to argue with you on the controls, I agree. But other then that (and Rico… cunt), Killzone 2 was the perfect FPS for me this year.

    For the record, I dont think people should have an opinion, I just disagree on it. The reason why I say that is because it might have looked like that. If it did, apologies. :)

    ODST is as long as Killzone 2, some rampant PS3 fanboyism here too it seems.

    #39 5 years ago
  40. mescalineeyes

    yes, me, huge 360 fanboy. this might blow your sucks off: I think Resistance 1 is the best FPS this generation.

    #40 5 years ago
  41. mescalineeyes

    I didn’t even notice anything was wrong with kz2′s controls until the huge online backlash began. :x

    I can see Sony’s line up for the next 3 years and I guarantee every year they will have better exclusives than 360. LOL you gotta give it to Sony they didn’t go out and buy time exclusives from 3rd parties like M$. Now the economy is in the shit hole and 3rd parties have no choice but to turn down M$ xbox live sub fee money for exclusively.

    Karma is a bitch and now it’s gonna bite M$ in the ass.

    @mescalineeyes – Halo 3 ODST is most certainly not superior to Killzone 2… ODST is good and all but it didn’t deserve the scores it received by any stretch of the imagination. Was unimpressed, but glad they didn’t try to ride the hype train on this one as they did Halo 3. Killzone 2 was a fresh gaming experience for me, whereas ODST felt… recycled. Firefight is cool, though.
