The latest issue of Game Informer has dropped a ton of new Resistance 3 details.

The most notable among them is the return of the Weapon Wheel, as per this NeoGAF post.

As recently leaked screenshots suggested, Capelli has started a family with Hale’s stepsister Susan, and plays the game’s lead role.

A co-op campaign is included, but it won’t feature alternate story sections as it did in Resistance 2.

We’ve collected everything for you below.

  • Weapon Wheel returns.
  • Capelli has started a family with Susan.
  • Co-op confirmed, but there’ll be no alternate story co-op as in Resistance 2.
  • African Prison is one of the included maps.
  • The world is changing in R3; Chimeran plant life explodes when shot.
  • AI will be smarter.
  • Capelli can climb over walls and through windows.
  • Longs Legs will be jumping from roof to roof trying to shoot you down.
  • A new weapon called the Mutator shoots biological mists, causing boils and other injuries to enemies, which makes them explode causing splash damage.
  • Bullseye, Magnum, Shotgun, Auger and Carbine are all coming back.
  • Weapons can be upgraded, and will become better the more you use them.
  • Grenades are shaped like food cans and are full of nails.
  • Vaccine might be able to cure the Chimeran virus.
  • Humans have turned to cannibalism due to lack of food.
  • Capelli is trying to save his son and has some “other” unknown mission.
  • He is joined by Malikov and they go to New York, St Louis and other locales.
  • The team wants to make online play more organized and less clustered than the 60-player matches in R2.
  • Ted Price handed the reigns to Marcus Smith for a lot of the game’s work
