We had heard that Insomniac would announce the details for a Resistance 2 update this week, and here it is.
UK site JustVideoGames got the scoop on the R2 patch, and you can watch the announcement via video if you like. If you're at work or something and would rather read the info: first off, they've added Meltdown Mode, which – surprisingly enough – is a remake of the original Resistance multiplayer mode. That will certainly come as good news for those who played the heck out of Fall of Man , right? Then there's a new difficulty option for co-op play; Superhuman is the choice for the experts who think Hard isn't challenging enough. The last major change is the "second-player PSN login," which means that Player 2 in split-screen action can access their PSN profile and corresponding information. Other than LittleBigPlanet , R2 is the only PlayStation 3 game that will offer such a feature, so be thankful for that upgrade. We're also waiting on the unveiling of more downloadable content for Insomniac's awesome shooter, and we expect that to arrive within the next few days. What good is a Game Developers Conference unless we can get the cool info?
We'll certainly keep you informed. As the week wears on, we imagine there could be a few big pieces of news to report, and we know the readers demand it. Don't you?
