One of the more appealing aspects of Resistance 2 is bound to be its longevity, in regards to both the single-player campaign and online multiplayer. But did you realize just how robust the online cooperative campaigns will be? Even if you tested them out in the beta, you still have no idea…
According to a post made over at the NeoGAF forums, an Insomniac community manager has provided a gameplay update for R2. He says there will be a total of 6 maps for co-op play, and each map will have several different areas to play through, which should supposedly take “15-20 hours.” If you want to get the full Resistance 2 experience, it’s highly recommended that you tackle any and all available gameplay modes, both offline and online. Here’s the quote in question that confirms the added longevity:
”There are six locations, each has quite a few different areas, and a single-playthrough of any will not show you nearly the entire map or all of the different set-ups on it due to the randomization of the playpath. It probably takes between 15-20 hours to see every single co-op set-up and encounter.”
Now, some have misinterpreted this to mean that each co-op mission/map will take 15-20 hours, but clearly, it doesn’t read that way. What we’re most interested in, though, is that “randomization of the playpath” comment, which – if we’re understanding it correctly – can add even more replay-ability to the cooperative online modes. And if you want to see it all, you’re going to have to invest the time, which you shouldn’t waste blasting away at everyone else in standard Deathmatches. Remember, Insomniac wants to offer you a little something new with R2, so don’t pass on the opportunity!
