Nihilistic Software has detailed the multiplayer portion of Resistance: Burning Skies.

It will contain eight-player multiplayer, 2v2 and 4v4, Quick Match mode, Vita’s Party application for private or group matches, and Rank Up mode in which players will be “rewarded with bonus XP for daring feats of skill.” Players can also modify and customize their weapons and unlock various boomsticks and upgrades from the story campaign as they Rank up.

Online play also features three game modes – Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and a third mode which will be revealed next week.

There will be six playable maps ranging from the Staten Island streets to the docks of Bayonne with voting available prior to each match

To connect, players can use Wi-Fi and 3G and participate in an array of social features such as leaderboards and “near”, which is Vita’s location-based service. Those who use it will be given a new social perk awarding players XP multipliers to carry over into multiplayer mode.

Watch the trailer below.

Resistance: Burning Skies will be available from May 30.

    1# Not sucky, but really unimpressive. It doesnt feel like a “Big Deal” game.

    Its actually a good option for Vita, but you doesnt feel like its going to be different from other game, that is going to convince you. Just a game to rent for some days or to buy it used.

    8 Players is good, but I hope future games be able to have 12 players. 6 vs 6 its the perfect number, but Im not sure Vita is able to do that…

    If im buying this it sure aint for the multiplayer, that just looked realy realy boring and outdated.

    Hope the singleplayer is more solid.

    Agreed, it looks like half baked game… Not even one video so far has left any memories in my mind.

    It looks so generic… i dont understand why they gave this license to nihillistic, a studio that has produced one of the worst Move game….
